I so remember the countless preparations for a real baby. The lists I checked and checked again to make sure everything was ready. Then suddenly the classes were completed, the nursery sat with fresh paint and toys, the shower gifts were all organized and even the thank-you cards were written. The months of anticipation were nearly over. It was just about time for the main event.
Maybe it is how an artist feels the final time a brush strikes a painting he or she has been working on for a long time. Maybe it is the way a construction team feels when the last nail is driven, or the final window hung in someone's dream house. Perhaps it is how the musician feels when the score seems just right or the ice hockey player feels when the puck sneaks right by the goalie. Maybe it is what it feels like to a game hunter who finally has bagged the big one.The feeling is awesome, overwhelming and amazing whenever we realize something we set out to accomplish has become a reality.
We start with a goal or and idea and after much trial and error, a good bit of anxiety,sometimes many snags, frequent sighs of relief and sometimes even stubborn refusals to quit we can see the end in sight. If you have a passion for or about something it takes a lot more than sweat and tears to make you cry wolf and just like any parent will tell you how the pain of birth is forgotten and so worth the product, whatever you have poured your heart and soul into completing will often have you feeling the same.
So the ride is beginning again for me;the adventure taking its final turn and the investment of time and energy is about to be completed...just a few more pains to go and FINDING YOUR FIRE will arrive. I can't wait. I am excited, nervous, worried, relieved and anxious to see what it will look like!
Everyone needs someone's support at a birth and I definitely need your help on this one. I would love your opinion on which cover you think this new "baby" should wear. So please assist me in choosing #1 or #2, because I can't do this without you.
And please share what you're creating and how far along you and your "baby" are.
