Do you ever get the nudge? The thought, idea, spark, to do something?
I'm in the middle of Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. The way she talks about ideas... as some kind of entities that visit us, help us, and sometimes leave us, is beautiful, inspiring, and freeing.
And incredibly helpful.
I think it's how God/The Divine works. God approaches. Hey, here's a thought. You up for it? No pressure, but I think you might like this. Again, no stress. There will be more. No shame. You are loved whether you take it or not.
She could use a phone call. They could use some groceries. This would make a good story. Tell them you appreciate them. Have you been to Iceland? Want to start a non-profit?
And sometimes we run with it. And sometimes we pass it along to someone else.
We nudge them. This could be cool for you. I wonder if you'd like it. And again, no stress. There will be more. No shame. You are loved whether you take it or not.
Too much of my life is built around there not being another opportunity. Too much is built around love being tied to accepting a nudge, or not.
It's just a nudge. No stress, there will be more. No sham.e You are loved whether you (or they) take it or not.
