No Turning Back
It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere. I secretly call them soul whispers.
The messages are all around us
I consciously choose to lead a creative life. It isn't always easy nor is it exactly the way I want it...yet. But, there is no turning back.
As many of you know. I have a 'crazy day job' and there are so many things I could say, but I won't. I define it as 'crazy' mostly because I do it and it does not feed my soul and for that I am crazy.
So, I took myself on a date with my camera Saturday to feed my soul and make my heart dance. I took the subway and exited at 33rd street (Union Square at 14th Street was my destination) choosing to walk and explore. I with my backpack on and inside carrying my 35mm camera, an extra lens, my point & shoot digital camera and in my pocket my iPhone - I walked.
Then I stopped in my tracks, in the middle of the street. I just stood there looking down at the 3 arrows that you see above and I started to laugh - out loud. Side note: in NYC, people laughing out loud to themselves occurs often but we usually write them off as crazy and keep walking. Happily, no one was around.
I laughed because my cameras were in my backpack. I laughed because I had to have this picture. I laughed because it was and still is exactly what I need to believe - - there is no turning back.
By the way, I also laughed because the light was turning and I had to get out of the way and then time the capture of the shot during a red light. As I attempted this a kind woman showed up and watched the light for me and prompted me when to move - so kind!
The universe is giving me permission to go any way BUT back.
I took my iPhone out of my pocket, this is a fairly new toy and Instagram is totally new to me but why not give it a try. I love how this turned out. I love the layer I added, I love that I chose to include my feet.
I really love that I get to choose and there isn't just one arrow - there a multiple so I can choose to do more than one thing. I can go one way and come back and take another path. So many options.
There is no turning back.
Today, I want to share this message from the universe with you.
Give yourself permission to move forward. To choose a path that feeds your soul.
There is no turning back.
