My Life Map, My Vision (Days 6,7)

09 Jan My Life Map, My Vision (Days 6,7)

“Vision looks inward and becomes duty. Vision looks outward and becomes aspiration. Vision looks upward and becomes faith.” ~ Stephen S. Wise

Sitting on the deck of my quaint cottage overlooking Cape Cod, I am secluded a few weeks of every summer on Martha’s Vineyard writing until my heart’s content. I live on a sprawling estate in North Georgia where I host monthly tea socials with an intimate group of friends. I look forward to laughing and sharing with my sister circle. I attend many local community gatherings and charity events as well as national events. I travel abroad yearly to beautiful destinations- Peru, Egypt, Norway. I am an art and tea pot collector. I am a bestselling author and an award winning documentarian. I have been recognized for my tireless HIV/AIDS activism.  I attend annual conferences and workshops staying abreast of current and world affairs. I have multiple streams of income providing for a life of abundance and a path to early retirement. I give cheerfully of the first fruit. I exercise daily and have a personal chef. I devote time daily to meditating, praying, acknowledging my blessings, and seeking clarity for what is ahead of me. I love God. I visit family during the holidays and call frequently. I vacation with my best friends and laugh until my stomach hurts. I have a husband that was handpicked just for me, who loves and supports me unconditionally. I reciprocate. I nurture and pour into my children greatness as they will one day be great.


I stepped back, read my life narrative and walked away. My heart was full and tears welled up in my eyes. I had written this vision and made it plain before. But with all its promise, the pictures and words lacked Skyy (I).  I took my own breath away.  I questioned what I was seeing. Then I scanned my journey thus far and simply declared, why not?
