I took a walk on this gorgeous fall afternoon. The blue sky was akin to that of the wide open expanse of Montana. Before I set out I donned my headphones and started listening to a recording of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. I have listened to this before…read the book a few times, in fact, but today it took on new meaning, due to where I find myself, at this point in my life.
I’m not sure what chapter I was listening to but the topic was about success and how it often eludes us until we are in the midst of a crisis and are forced to be introduced to our ‘other’ self. I am in the midst of a crisis and I have come face to face with this new version of me.
Because of my current circumstances, I have not only been introduced to but am embracing this other me I sort of knew was dwelling inside, begging to be let out. I have consoled myself with a phrase I coined, “This is not my forever place”, often enough during the last six weeks, but after listening to this book on tape today…I’m thinking it just might be.
