Card of the
Carrot Colored Cloak:
Don’t Quit Before the Miracle
So you want something. You really want something. It’s your dream, your heart’s desire, your raison-de-etre. That’s
As many people have a hard time getting to square one to become clear about what they want in the first place, you’re ahead of the game.
You’ve thought a lot about it. You feel this dream is right for you, and you know in your heart and with your whole being that this is what you are meant to be or do.
As was true for Shannon in the fable, you have a sense that The Great Spirits are pulling for you.
But it takes work, and it’s easy to get discouraged and give up. There are always other demands on our time. There’s always unexpected obstacles such as uncertainty about how to precede, the hurt of rejection or the practicalities of day-to-day financial necessity. There’s also the necessary
emotional fortitude sometimes really hard to maintain.
Sometimes even one negative gesture or word from a well meaning friend can throw us off track.
It seems as though the ways to get thrown off track multiply by the minute and that it’s a whole lot easier to get derailed than it is to figure how to stay on track.
That’s where the fable comes in, and that’s where the concept of “don’t quit before the miracle” becomes so profound.
You want something. You really want something. It’s your dream, your heart’s desire, your raison-de-etre.
Don’t quit before the miracle.
