And sometimes... when you're ready to give up and let go of that thing that didn't come to be, something happens.
I sometimes wish that I could glimpse the masterplan and see how everything is supposed to work out. Along the way, it can be confusing and it can seem like you're flying blindly, flailing frantically. Even so, I do think there's a path. One thing leads to another, and if you're careful, you can trace a delicate finger along the ribbon of causality.
Sometimes when you're a little down, it makes all the good things seem all that much better. We recently were the recipients of tremendous generosity and can't count our blessings enough. My sincere gratitude goes out to those angels. Thank you! You know who you are and we are so thankful.
As it turns out, our initial goal isn't completely lost after all. I won't go into the details, mainly because they aren't mine to go into, but how it shakes out is that I have extra time to fundraise to make the transaction happen. Second chances do exist.
I will say this, the Creative heART Challenge isn't over yet! What I've learned through the evaluation of what worked and what didn't work is I need to listen to the muses and focus on that first. I'll update as projects are completed and that may or may not fall within a daily schedule. I'm also not going to give a definitive end time; I'm keeping the schedule to myself and if something strikes your fancy, grab it! Don't wait! I so very much want to make this happen, but I also don't want to sacrifice my life in the meantime. As a result, I'm going to approach this much more fluidly and see if that doesn't generate a better result. I feel really fortunate for this opportunity and will gladly engage some of those ideas that sparked during the first run of the Creative heART Challenge. Keep your eyes peeled for more things to come! Great things will happen!
