Twilight time in most cities is magic time. Its very chilly at this time of dusk, with the wind kicking up some major speeds. Magic mean anything is possible. All can be dreamt of and we dare to accomplish them during the transition of light and dark. I for myself today got to practice my worth value when it comes to writing in a meeting I had.
This writing project would involve months of work. I'm the kind in the past that has always dived into the work while waving off the chores of settling on contracts. This was never a good way to get ahead as no one respected my work or thought they could get it for free. I was the last option, the cheap means. Well it's taken some work for me to state my value to people. You have to be gentle, kind and firm. Confident in your abilities not cocky in your presentation. At the end of the day it all about the work. I remember being told that in college and have never forgotten that.
This road people in general can be very petty, jealous and mean, so during this magic time I have to remind myself that God gave me these talents to use to create a joyful life, not to seek the approval of others. The gusty winds outside this coffee shop are simply blowing people away and I'm wondering how I will make it home. But I have to commend the dog owner outside caring for his furry pooch, making sure a pee and walk are attained. Magic time! Yes, that dog owner thought it impossible that he would get a walk in, fearing the pooch might be blown away. Yet there they are, braving the elements, one pissing, the other smoking and shivering.
I was really impressed by the bravery of Kristin's blog today. She took a big step into her journey. It inspired me to follow my path as honestly as I can. It's not that I don't care for other and their well being, its they simply too live my life. I live it. Everyday, I put on my shoes, right then left. I stepped out into the world brave or not, and I get it done. I enjoy the shit out of a eating my breakfast taco or talking about films for hours. It;s my life, I live on both feet.
Did I mention I get cold really easily? Yup, growing up in Southern California I had it good with basically the best year around weather in the world. Well man, it can get really cold in Texas. That's fine. I have great leather gloves and a manly collection of scarves to take on the winter months here. So the road of walking will be a challenge the next 28 days. I have to keep my feet and hands warm or else I'm a goner.
Did I mention the new writing gig is a horror film script? Yes! So that magic time can also be the witching hour as we chatted about supernatural subplots and divine happenings. More on that as we progress .Like I said, anything is possible during highlight. Enjoy your night and see you on down the road.
