Make it Happen or Let it Go

I think I found my window...Boston! For a while I kept telling the Lord that if He was going to close all the doors the least He could do was open a window.

There is a very real vision statement in my life: Make it happen or let it go! I did this when I moved out to Boston from Provo. I had wanted to move to the East coast for a few years. I finally realized if it was going to happen I needed to make it happen or let it go, thus the vision statement.

Most things in my life have a song that explains my feeling much better. The day before I flew out here my best frien, Alan played a song for me that made my heart happy. It is from Little Women the Musical. The song is called "Astonishing." I will quote a part of it here to describe for you the euphoria and empowerment (not to mention the blessings) that come when you make things happen in your life.

"I've got to know if I can be
astonishing.
There's a life that I am meant to lead,
Alive like mothing I have known.
I can feel it and it's far from here.
I've got to find it on my own.
Even now I feel its heat upon my skin.
A life of passion that pulls me from within.
A life that I am aching to begin.
There must be somewhere I can be
Astonishing.
Astonishing...

Here I go and there's no turning back.
My great adventure has begun.
I may be small but I've got giant plans
To shine as brightly as the sun.
I will blaze until I find my time and place,
I will be fearless, surrendering modest and grace.
I will not disappear without a trace.
I'll shout and start a riot,
Be anything but quiet.
Christopher Columbus, I'll be astonishing.
Astonishing.
Astonishing.
At last."

In learning to let go I am finding the things that matter the most to me and discovering things I never knew existed. I truly believe in this new vision statement of mine...Make it Happen or Let it Go!
