While going through some of my childhood items my mother found cleaning out a closet in her house, I came across this little item. I found the irony in this because I could not have been very old, I am guessing 6 or so, when I wrote in this notebook. The thought bubble above Snoopy’s head could have very well been a warning from the universe. It could have been I was just a big fan of Peanuts and Charlie Brown. Although personally I think I am more like the character of Linus.

What this made me think of is how perhaps talents we have may be innate. If you would have asked me what I wanted to be at the age of 6, I highly doubt my answer would have been best-selling author and blog writer, but that is what I am on my way to becoming. Did I somehow already know that is what I was destined to do?

To add to the feelings of irony, found with this notebook was a collection of stories I had composed back in third grade. Other than noting my grammar has not improved a great deal since then, my writing style was oddly the same. The fact that these two items were found at this point in my life seems interesting to me. Sometime after receiving an A+ for my writing in third grade, I had transitioned to being warned by my teacher my senior year in high school never to pursue a career in writing. Had I come across these items at that time they would have totally meant something different.

Does timing and current life situations dictate what things mean or are we destined to find and become certain things in life? I guess that falls to a matter of opinion. As for me and my little Snoopy notebook, there are several ways in which I could view this. I could say that perhaps my grammar will never be good if it hasn’t improved in thirty  years. I could say that my writing was better received in third grade than it is now. That may very well be true, but there is another way to look at it. A more positive way. I will  just take it as a sign from the universe that being an author is really something that has always been a part of who I was. Also a sign and reminder that I am pursuing the write life path.

I think we have a choice as to how we interpret the things that happen to us in life. Whether we view them as positive and inspirational, or negative and foreboding is up to us and has a great deal of influence on the quality of our life.

  1. Thanks for this great post. I agree with you. Infact rather than calling it destiny, I say it as purpose of life. Every soul comes to this earth with a purpose to fulfill. Even before taking birth in physical body, he knows why he or she will be coming here on this planet. Even I am in the current transition phase. I have been a commerce student and a professional in Accountancy. I worked in the internal audit profession for 7 years. I learned a lot in my profession. Then gradually I got interested in cyber security subject, I did courses in it to learn more and finally left job in 2015 to pursue my dream in cyber security. I searched for job in the new field for three years with no success as industry desires experienced people and globally certified which I am not. I started my blogging in 2014, then began my YouTube journey and the work as an author. My blogging, YouTube and books all are about the law of attraction. Everything was unexpected. Today I am a successful blogger, YouTube and an author. Last yr I published my first book on amazon. This year 2nd book, just yesterday. Sales are low I agree because people don’t know me much right now. However, I am happy and grateful to have this opportunity to empower people. Unexpectedly I started law of attraction coaching & consultancy. So now slowly my interest is getting more into this work rather than cyber security or accountancy. Thus, I feel I am on the right path in living the purpose of my life.
