Who out there in the world would be
the best mentor for your ideas and goals?
You want to talk about risk? My response to this question feels like a huge risk to put out there for all of heaven and Earth to see.
I almost don’t want to answer this because my response sounds really cliché. Seriously, over the top cliché.
The thing is, once I asked today’s NaBloPoMo question, I couldn’t wipe the cliché response out of my head. I’ve thought it over and here’s what I’ve come up with: cliché is only bad when we say it out of complete lack of creativity.
My response to this prompt is completely truth-filled and nothing less.
My first thought was “I have no idea” and then I remembered when I was pregnant with my son and on my own raising my two daughters, I chose to see God as my partner. It helped me through a lot of dark days. I spent a lot of time chatting with God then, just sort of “hanging out” in nearly constant prayer and communion.
Times change and I don’t do that much anymore.
What I have discovered is that when I do “hang out” with God and include Him in my choices and actually ask for his advice on things via prayer and contemplation, everything in my work and my life improves.
Since I am a creative entrepreneur, who but the Creator of the Universe would be the perfect mentor to bring my (I should say our) ideas into fruition.
There. I said it. I wrote it. And now I am even going to hit publish!
