Making Your Way

Egg Hatch

What if there is something you need to be born to today?

How will you make your way?

One little tap at a time in a determined direction.

And suddenly, seemingly overnight, everything will feel open and filled with possibility.

My favorite form of self-reflective tapping is an occasional return to Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way. It might not be for you. But it might be.

I've just returned to The Artist's Way as well -- and it taps well on my creative soul.

Beautiful as always! "One tap at a time..." steady determination gets us there. Encouragement in a few short words. Bless you!

n"One tap at a time." How applicable for birds and those of us at keyboards :).

Yes - one little tap at a time. I've been reminded of this in one way or another numerous times in recent days. Now...just to get started.
I just unpacked my copy of The Artist's Way the other day. I've started it twice and then sort of petered out. So typical. But perhaps it is time to take a small step.

Isn't it the 'tapping' that can be so hard sometimes?

I keep coming across connections to those of you at the High Calling : )My husband was given a hand full of poetry books to borrow and I found myself flipping through yours, Insideout - and seeing your name at the bottom I paused... "She's commented on my blog!, she's from the High Calling!" ... all that to say, I am enjoying your book, even this evening have been drinking it in!
Warmly, Emily Murphy

I appreciate your imagery of a chick pecking on the shell one tap at a time. This approach makes growth seem possible. I'm also a Julia Cameron fan! Thanks for the reminder and encouragement.

Yes, it may be. I shall be tapping.
Unfortunately (chuckle), pre-reading her beginning pages makes me want to move to Manhattan!
But, there's this, SO important for us to remember, although there are many who might tell us otherwise: “... it is our work that creates the market, not the market that creates our work" -- and God is our best guide as to what and how to write, not "what's selling now." Thanks for this good suggestion.
