In Synchronicity or as summarized by Carl Jung…“Meaningful Coincidences”. I do believe. I was having a discussion with my 10 year old one day and it really was a discussion this day. Most times it is a debate with him. A future prosecutor in training, but this day was different, perhaps synchronicity in and of itself! He asked what synchronicity meant, so I was trying to give examples that would pertain to his life. Now every time a meaningful coincidence occurs we both call out “synchronicity” at the same time.
The past few days I have experienced 2 such occurrences. Sometimes I get down on myself and I wonder if the path I am on the path that He wants me on. Is He giving me answers but I am not hearing, or hearing but ignoring? For almost 5 years I have been on a new path. It started with my diagnosis in April 2006. One thing led to another and I found myself creating art, lots of art and blogging about my art and my cancer and my life after cancer. I love the creating and the blogging, but I wonder am I making a difference? The Ferris Bueller's Day Off classroom scene comes to mind. ”anyone…anyone”.
A relative of a very close friend was just diagnosed with breast cancer. My friend reached out to me, her relative reached out to me and her daughter reached out to me. My cancer experience and those of my fellow mothers with cancer can bring some answers and comfort to others. I have a whole other post brewing on this subject but now to meaningful coincidence number 2!
Now that my website is up and running, I have can get back to creating some new art. I sketched this idea awhile back.
I decided to move forward with this piece. Yet while I was working on it, I was questioning its exact message.
Then meaningful coincidence number 2:
I received an email yesterday from someone who has been following my blog for a few years:
“I follow your blog and it brings great joy.
You have persevered, kept your faith and keep looking forward instead of backward. God Bless you and keep you cancer free to spread your love your love of art and God. You are an inspiration to many.
Please keep up the good work and know that your blog brings a smile to many many faces. Thank you for sharing your time and talent. It is appreciated. “
That is synchronicity. There is no way that she knew that I was questioning my path. That I was wondering if time it takes to post and keep up with my blog is worth it? Does anyone want to hear what I have to say? See what I have created? Can I make a living at this?
Granted one comment does not pay the bills, but it does make me feel like He is guiding me on His path for me!
