What is mine to do?

Some years ago, I realized I’d gotten stuck. The writing work I was doing for clients was interesting (web content, marketing materials, etc.) but it didn’t feed my soul. I started looking around for ways to create rich and meaningful work for myself.

My path has been a long and sometimes convoluted one. But one thing has been consistent: telling stories. My work is all about telling stories.


Along the way, gifts and resources have dropped in my lap. One day, I picked up a book and it opened up a whole new line of thinking. I started listening for guidance. I tried different things and many of them failed. But there was always something to learn, so I kept going.


In fact, the day that seemed most like a dismal failure—I gave a workshop and no one came—turned out to be an opportunity to dig deep into one of those resources that fell into my lap: a 16-page statement on prosperity for all of humanity. That, really, is the inspiration for this work I’m doing now. Even my Dad’s passing, sad and sudden as it was, has been an inspiration to me. I feel his emboldening encouragement every step of the way.


So I’m on a path of discovery with this blog on prosperity. It is evolving into a book, but I sense that there’s much more to it than that. What I’m learning is that he path unfolds as I step forward: I have to keep moving to find out what comes next.


This is my exploration of “What is mine to do?”


Are you grappling with this question too? Or do you know someone who is? What is your experience on this path? What does it look like for you?


I’d love to hear your experiences. Send me an email or share your thoughts in the comments. If you know of someone who is working on this question, by all means share this with them too.
