Wonder Worthy

March 16, 2010

Oh Creative One! I’ve been doing as asked. I have put myself out there a bit more than I’ve ever done before. I’m taking risks that are appropriate for my journey. I’m not auditioning for American Idol, but I am telling people that I am a writer and that I am looking for paid work. The moms at the playground know, my husband’s co-workers know, strangers on the train know after they ask me where my accent comes from and why exactly would I be living in Glasgow. As I’ve taken more risks, I am also opening myself up to more rejection. It is stomach-churning for my naturally pensive self.

Risky Creative One, consider all of the things in your life that are worthy of wonder. A sunset caught from your child’s bedroom? Your son cuddling up to you unexpectedly? The rhythm of your steps on the way to work? The list is endless. Remember that to equate rejection with a completely bad occasion is a myth. You have been considered and, though deemed unsuitable at the time, you have also been deemed worthy of wonder. This is something we’ve known about you all along isn’t? You are worthy of wonder.
