A Cleansing

I've changed my blog photo today. For those few who follow me and know that I've rarely posted this year...know that my life has been turned upside down because of career and personal things. I chose the new photo that was taken while at Walden Pond with one of my good friend's Hayes from the SG blog. She took me for an afternoon and entertained my dream of spending a walk around the pond and woods. I had dreamed of this day for years...since high school. As we walked around and I took photos....we came upon the area where Thoreau's cabin had stood....it was roped off and a rock pile stood nearby with many people making their own zen-like rock stacks. I have no clue what they are called but I decided to do my own. As I'm building it...I came across a blue star. Now many would just think "oh how cool or neat is this" if they came across it...but if you know anything about me...you know my obsession with Stars....and my connection with The Lone Star State. I took this as a sign...a Sign for me JUST ME. I would achieve many things soon. I had been working in a great job that I loved but I knew it had no chances for advancement any time soon....

You also know that later that same year I received a phone call for the position I have now....a great advancement with a company that I am learning every single day more and more. I went to search out this picture because I needed it right now. I need to see that there is destiny still and fate cannot stand in my way. I know that I've instilled this same thought process in my son...he showed me today a fortune he found in a fortune cookie...something about how Determination would help him through anything. That is my legacy to him....the stars will shine....but you have to follow them first.

Great post, Tex. I hadn't heard this story before.

Sometimes I forget what you wrote about; you'll get the directions but you've still gotta follow the light.
