Confirmation...

In the pit of my stomach, I've felt as though change is coming. A wind has been pressing at my back, moving me forward. It's a shaky time, full of uncertainty. It's an easy time to doubt decisions and seek the refuge of what is safe and what is certain.

I've been questioning what the right road is for me. What do I want to do? What do I want to make? How do I want to share these things with the world? Will they be well received? Will they fail? What will people think? Does it matter? Am strong enough? Am I brave enough to take the necessary risks and embrace my destiny?

The weather has been reflective of this pensive mood lately. Storm clouds linger overhead. Mist swirls darkly blanketing everything. It's as though my roiling questions confined within have been painted outwardly in the cloudy landscape...

I was standing outside, looking out on the grey tumult of my own workings spelled out above me. Suddenly, the heavens parted and light poured through the punctured canopy of clouds. The golden shafts of light came down, spilling across the roll of the horizon, illuminating the emerald below. And I knew...

I knew in the very core of my being that I was on the right path. I am on the right path. The crippling doubt melted away and I felt the wash of relief spread through my outstretched limbs. In short order, my plans for the future will become known. The future is bright! I am ready to shine!

I'm glad you found that clarity! This is certainly a strange year so far, but it sounds like you are, at least, finding your way.
