Recognize a new voice.

Do you recognize a new voice that’s all your own?
Yesterday I read a post on FB that said:
Walk into every room with the knowledge that God sent me there.
I thought: Wow.
Like EVERY room?
I wished for a moment that I could live with that much conviction.
Then, I thought:  Well, maybe I can.
But, idk.
But, probably.
I find myself embodying more and more of that same feeling as I grow deeper into life.

Recognize a new voice.

“…and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world…” ~ Mary Oliver, The Journey
I love her so much.
As we’re true to ourselves, and recognize that new voice…

A blast into the sky.

We can leave this life, decades from now, with a blast into the sky.
Instead of slowly burning out.
So, my new way of entering a room will be what she said:
Walk into every room with the knowledge that God sent me there.
Wow, I better bring it into the room next time.
But, if I’m walking into each room knowing I was sent there…
I’d probably skip into the room.
But, that would be annoying to others.
And myself.
So, I’ll just walk in normally… and remind myself that I was sent there.
And so was everyone else.
