Thursday Thoughts – Universal Seconds

Not sure why this message from the Universe jumped out at me from my stash. It did. Maybe because I’d made the Meme below not long ago. Maybe because stars, wishes, and second chances sort of go hand-in-hand. Maybe because I’ve been thinking about people who have disappeared from my life for various reasons–people who were once important to me but decided to move on without me. I miss them, but the second chances are a two-way effort.

Maybe this resonated because I really need opportunity to knock. I need to sit down and take a long, hard look at the direction of my career. Maybe stretch my comfort zone.

Maybe those voices are whispering more than my name. Well, of course they are. I’m a writer. They’re whispering about plots and characters and story arcs.

As many stars as there are in the night sky, Silver. As many grains of sand that exist on all the world’s beaches. That’s how often opportunity really knocks. That’s how many second chances you really get. And that’s how many voices whisper your name each day.

You have no idea…

No, Silver, I’m not exaggerating.

So, anyway… For whatever reason this one caught my eye, here it is. May you have stars to wish on, sand to walk barefoot in, opportunities, and second chances. And may the voices always have good ideas!

  1. I think about those people from time to time. Where’d they go. Why did they stop making the effort to maintain a relationship. When did the relationship become an effort for them. I know it becomes an effort for me when it’s all one-sided and then I get to the point of ‘if they aren’t going to bother, why should I’. :shrug: Maybe that’s the way the universe works.

    I think opportunity is knocking for you. And it’s about time, I say. Lord knows, no one in the biz works harder than you do. You’ve got the Harlequin thing going on, your other series are out there and being read. I predict only better things from here on out. =oD

    I love that meme, btw.

    • Silver James says:

      Yeah. I wonder if it’s something I did and they didn’t care enough to tell me, or if they just didn’t care enough to keep me in their lives. I do find the older I get, the less effort I make. That’s on me. Then again, maybe the Universe does work that way. People appear/disappear as needed.

      October was not a good sales month and November isn’t looking any better. That may be contributing to my state of mind, too. I’m ready for good stuff to happen. To ALL of us!

      And thanks. That was a neat scene in the DEVIL’S CUT.

      • Or if it was something I did to tick them off and they didn’t have the cajones to tell me. The older I get the less time I have to make a one-sided effort. My mom’s got the same attitude, so I come by it naturally. LOL

        Yeah, things are definitely off. Since this is my first year, I can’t compare this fall with any other, though. My state of mind had been headed toward dumper-land. But onward. All of us! We’ll weather this together.

        And if I ever wander away from our friendship, Silver, poke me in the ass. Sometimes days… weeks… go by and I don’t notice what’s going on. :hugs:
