A Confluence

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, only how we play the hand.” ~Randy Pausch

Confluence defined: …coming together of people or things.

I experienced a confluence this past week. It was a mix of conversations, observations, social media postings, awareness, prayer and intentional listening.

Yesterday, I created space in which to consider these disparate facets; individually important considerations that had become apparent within such a brief time frame.

What emerged from that reflection was not surprising. However, as an unexpected blessing it was equal parts clarifying, reaffirming, and challenging – as in, get yourself even more focused because you’re on course!

And you are by yourself. You (being me) get to make your choices, navigate your way through unchartered waters and be beholden to no one else for the amazing results that will materialize.

Bye-bye superficial supporters and those who (at their core) are really interested in only their progress and success.

Welcome back to the driver’s seat, friends (my personal gifts, authenticity, and stretch goals). The windshield is crystal clear, the wind is caressing my bald head and I’m heading into what always has been and is intended for me.

Buckle your seat belts, vision and passions. Laugh out loud. We’re back to traveling together. What a fascinating journey we’re continuing…

Thanks, confluence! You’re what we needed.
