At this time tomorrow I'll be meeting with a fabulous coder to see if my awesome app idea is possible. I CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT! And right after that I'm meeting with the owner of my favourite place to negotiate a deal and see if Too Good Triangles will have found their first home away from home smile. Again, I CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT!
Luckily, I don't need either of these results to be a yes for me to feel good and proud tomorrow because just like with my query letters to literary agents, my sole focus is on doing my part of the equation - taking action on any inspired idea I have and doing what I need to do each day to get me closer to my vision - and then it's up to life to sort out how and when it'll all come together and who will be involved in the unfolding of my magic tale.
My ultimate end result is clear and it's never based on a particular thing working out in a particular way because there are more than a million ways for any of us to get to the same place.
I believe that life / the universe / our higher self / the flying spaghetti monster knows the quickest, easiest and funnest (yes, funnest) way to get us on the path towards our heart's longings. And sometimes it takes a ton of detours to get there and we can't see how it's all unfolding and feel or fear that maybe it's not, but someday in retrospect it will all be clear as day that absolutely everything and everyone in our life contributed exactly what was required for us to get to where we are and where we are going.
Nothing was wasted and everything is right on track.
Here is my practice, well part of it: Each day after spending about 20 minutes in lala land (that's the place where I do my darnedest to get out of my head and into my heart and my imagination, and then I pretend, feel and believe with all my might that I am living all the aspects of my ultimate dream as if it were already a done deal), I ask my BIG self: "What is the next thing that I need to do, or what is the action I need to take that will help me bring forth my desire?" (I got that little gem from this video) and then I go do that thing. Repeat x infinity.
Praying without action is just wishing. But being clear on what you want and trusting that it's possible and taking all those teeny, tiny steps each day that will eventually amount to something substantial for you, well that's where it's at.
The process isn't always pretty and most times not very noteworthy, and of course it's frustrating when you have yet to see the fruits of all your hard work and dedication - but the fruit is growing nonetheless so you may as well stay the course because you could honestly be just one breath or one day away from a breakthrough.
Wishing you all your heart desires and the courage, willingness and perseverance to go after it like a boss.

My beloved Too Good Triangles are now available at Princess Cafe! Read all about it here! Also, my meeting with Stephanie Rozek, the director of Year Of Code Waterloo Region, went great and she says my app idea can most likely work and she's going to link me up with a few others who can help me further with the details of it to make sure it's technologically possible. How exciting!
