Head in the Direction...Day 5

Navi is the navigation Muse...she always knows where she is headed, the best way to get there, and just how long it will take. Yesterday I began to realize that I have absolutely no control over the direction of my life at the moment...and, I must admit, that I am just fine...

One day I was happily painting in my Georgia studio...then the universe jumped in and said, "let's mix this life up a little" as it proceeded to let me know where I am going next...with a bang! (no subtlety here)...three days later I was moving back to Florida...

I have been in a whirlwind for two weeks now (see previous posts)...yesterday I was able to take a breath and let buds of excitement about the move begin to creep into my soul...aaahhhhhh breathe, just relax........

I understand that everything will eventually come together...but that does not prevent me from being panicky and wound up tighter than a spring...visiting those dark corners of my mind where I can see an ocean of details looming like a giant wave ready to engulf me. If and when I get some clarity, I can jump on top of that wave and let it bring me in the direction I must head anyway...and enjoy the ride...it might be a wild ride, and I might have to hang on for dear life, but it is soon over and I can choose to jump on another and another and another...until the tide changes...and I am happily exhausted...

Choosing to ride the waves instead of letting the water overtake me, is making the most of what the universe has given me...like taking one step at a time in the direction of the dream...doing what I can manage...allowing others to do what I can't...and eventually all will be quiet and calm again...just like the sea...

Today's aMUSEment - Let's paint an ocean scene and place our current concerns on the waves, in the waves, or out to sea. Release them to the universe and let them head in the direction they must...

PS - I feel much better this morning and am only looking in the direction of my dreams...

PSS - am saddened by the sudden death of blogger Daisy Lupin...her last post on Poetry Fest was a poem entitled Rebecca [Who Slammed Doors For Fun And Perished Miserably] by Hilaire Belloc. She lived in rural England...She had several other blogs: Cats in the Kitchen, Flora in the Garden, Glitter Power Sisters Art Gallery, and Daisy Lupin Designs. Vists Cats to leave a comment for her children...

I'm glad you are feeling better Rebecca! Cant wait to see your new studio! How exciting!

see you there! said...

Being swept away with change has always seemed both frightening and exhilarating to me.

You are doing wonderfully well with the practical (packing, moving) side of it all from the photo's you posted earlier.
