As I read the details of what you have already achieved and the approach you suggest one might take to reinvent themselves I sense you may already know what is ahead for you! My congratulations on past achievements and future endeavors.
You are indeed fortunate to have taken the paths you chose earlier. This indicates to me you have received and given wisely. As you know not everyone is celebrating their past with the same gratitude as you are, because for whatever reason they zigged when they should have zagged.
You may view your dormant gift of writing or storytelling as something to be exercised anew, and perhaps it is. However you choose to perceive it, please allow me to encourage you to continue on this path. What you have written here may appear plain and simple, an entirely natural extension of a side of you that your teacher saw way back when, but it is, in my humble opinion, more than that.
It is the expression of an aspect of your wholeness that is emerging for the benefit of all who will connect with and resonate with its message. For that reason and that reason only your work, here and now, transcends time and space. Every gift given to a human being on this planet deserves a voice AND a reward. The reward is always equal to or greater than the gift, regardless of the giver or the recipient.
That’s it! Go ahead, open the gift. Inspiration and adventure await you! For inside there is great-fullness!
