When you really really want something, the universe seems to come together to make it happen. It's not mystical convergences- more likely once you know what you want, it is easier to see opportunities.
Simultaneously, when what you want will entail a big change, it seems that life throws beautiful distractions in your way. You seem to get more offers from more really cool places.
Both of these things happen, and they contradict and, of course, both are merely perception.
In the end, life is about choices and I will decide which of these things are opportunities and which are distractions:
I have been asked separately, by two men I highly respect, to collaborate on books. Opportunity or distraction?
A provisional job offer in the place I love best in all the world. Opportunity or distraction?
There may be a job in a mountainous place on another continent, a reputedly dangerous place that I've never been. Opportunity or distraction?
Asked to put together a class for writers, a web-based seminar on violence. Opportunity or distraction?
Did a test run of a new program and the instructor who invited me pointed out that it was a critical skill completely missing from Criminal Justice education. There is a possibility that his employer would like the program developed. Opportunity or distraction?
The seminars are going ahead in Seattle, Missouri and Texas. People in Canada, the UK and on the east coast have asked about the possibility. KJ is sure that he can keep me busy. Opportunity or distraction?
The LEO program on Conflict Communication with Marc is taking shape. It will be spectacular. Opportunity or distraction?
All are simply choices. Whatever I choose will be the opportunities. Many of these I can do at the same time, but some will force me to give up others. Everything seems too rich and full of possibility right now. At least I will definitely be busy.
