Don’t Quit

It’s a typical hot, sticky summer Florida day. The clock on the counter is ticking as the clicking from shoes rush across the wood floors. The dreamer heads for the door with her computer in tow…in route to Starbucks. She likes to work from there to allow her creative juices to flow. The visionary knows that she has been created for so much more, so she makes the choice to pursue it!

It’s now several hours in and two chai teas later, as she begins to sigh. Writer’s block. The adventurer peers out the window hoping to draw from something. Puzzled by the fact that she so easily completed the 1st piece, the savvy traveler can’t understand why she’s so stumped over this one. The phone rings. It’s her best friend from Atlanta. She decides to pack up…she’s done writing for the day. She chit chats with her along the drive home, then decides to work on some other items upon arrival. As she engages in another project she notices that small voice inside keeps whispering, encouraging her to complete the unfinished piece. She hangs her head at the thought. She quietly says to herself,  “I don’t want to, I’m not sure of the direction of this piece.” She reluctantly complies, and decides to follow the guidance of the voice. She pulls out her laptop and begins to type. She struggles for the right words to finish. “Finally,” she exclaims, “it’s done,” so she sends it. Days later as the journey seeker checks her email, joy begins to fill her soul. She smiles and is overcome by emotion. Her piece, the very one she toiled to complete, would soon be published. Looking up, she screams loudly with gratitude over her decision to honor that voice. It was all worth it. “Thank You God!!!” She was so glad that she listened. She thought to herself, “He knows best.”

It was her reminder to trust that still, small voice and not to quit!
