Thursday Thoughts: Universal Expectations

Sometimes, getting the right words down in the right order and actually telling a story from the beginning to the end feels like a miracle. Writing is not easy. Oh, we writers like to pretend it’s all roses and chocolate but it’s more nose to the grindstone and butt in chair, hands on keyboard.

Every enlightened master, Silver, knows that it’s not what you do that brings about a miracle, but that you do something, consistently, with an unwavering expectation that thy will shall be done.

Because when you do something, with intention, every day, almost anything, in the direction of your dreams, that’s all I’ll need to reach you, connect a few dots, and drop a few jaws.

We takin’ over,
The Universe

Which means, Silver, that usually the best way to extraordinary is through the ordinary (making ordinary quite extraordinary, if you know what I mean).

And isn’t that all the truth? Do something, with intention, every day, working toward the dream of finishing your story. Or for those of you who aren’t writers, the same holds true. Whatever your dream is, working toward it will bring about the miracle of completion. I’m off to connect a few dots and hopefully, when all is said and done, I’ll drop a few jaws when NIGHT WISH goes live. What about y’all? What miracle are you looking to create?

  1. Waiting for this book is killing me. Of course, I’m killing you over here making you wait for CU, so we’re even. ;o)

    The Universe is right, of course. Do something with intention toward your goals every day. Whether it’s writing a book or being active or losing weight or keeping the house clean. Every day. One foot in front of the other. You can’t lose if you’re doing that.

    Right now, I’m working toward the miracle of presenting a well-edited book to the world. And yeah, that ain’t easy. But no one promised us any of this would be easy. It is what it is. And when we’re done, we’ll each have another book out there in the world for people to read and enjoy. Go, us!
