Well, I’ve returned from a six-month hiatus from my blog. The stresses of remodeling a home for nearly three years took over so the blog got put on the back burner.
But now that I’m FINALLY moved into my ‘new’ home, the major stresses have receded. My desire to be creative has re-ignited.
I figured I’d start with printing some of my pictures to put into a wall frame I’ve put on my living room wall. So I went to Wal-Mart yesterday after picking out six pictures I wanted to include for the spring/summer season. My hope to get in, out and to the bank by 9 when they opened didn’t come to fruition because their photo machines were not unlocked until 9. With a half hour to blow, I did some shopping and stopped back when I was finished. I put my flash drive in the port, picked and printed my pictures and was on my way. But no one was at the counter so I had to go up front, only to be told I needed to go back and get something from the photo center. After running from the back to the front and back to the back of store, I gave the girl the stub (without a price) and asked if I could pay for the 20 or so items I had shopped for at her register. She said sure, but she’d be right back.
I unloaded detergent, dish liquid and all other items from my cart to the counter as the girl went away and came back with another employee. The second employee then asked if these were my photos. I said yes. Not believing me, she said they looked like professional photos and required me to sign a piece of paper indicating they were mine and probably with some sort of disclaimer for Wal-Mart. I was dumbfounded…my Spirit was soaring! My photos? Professional?? Wow! I thanked her and the first girl for making my day!
At that moment, I decided to join the Carbon County Art League, restart my blog and pursue a book project (like my blog) I had planned to do for quite a while. The Universe had spoken and I was listening. I am taking action.
How about you? Are you listening to the Universe? How do you know if it’s the Universe? When you have a heart filled with passion, peace, love and enthusiasm, that’s a good start.
