You Are The Way Through

There’s not much room on the side of a stainless steel fridge for magnets. My collection once sprawled across the freezer door has been whittled down to a meaningful few with some recent additions.

One such newcomer took me totally by surprise recently – I don’t remember placing it there.


Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Following your light in no way means the path ahead is a walk in the park.

A 4×4 is often more appropriate for the road ahead in order to navigate the unknown variations in terrain and changing road conditions.

One day could be spent in the weeds and the next is facing too tall grasses without a scythe.

The dream sold of smooth sailing onwards can feel like few and far between.


I say this not to dissuade you from following what calls from inside, but to tell you of the ups and downs of what to expect.

So you can prepare.


Rough Road Ahead


Not by taking courses to know enough, or be good enough before you start.

There’s always something more needed to make enough.


Preparations for this particular journey are best spent connecting to your many facets within. Allow your inner presence to flow outward to carry you forward.

The way out from weeds is to know you will when you don’t have a clue. Your scythe is the courage to go where you’re called.


Hope and belief come from the mind.

Knowing is sourced through the heart.

Clarity doesn’t always come before and moxie bridges the gap.


You are here now. Of that never doubt.

The call has been made.

Allow yourself the trust to answer because you will know when you need to.

Lorraine Watson - on rustic porch

chief nudging officer


Crazy for cats and potatoes, Lorraine's insatiable curiosity of Life leads her to question, explore and push beyond the box. A self-professed "left-brained creative big picture" type, she has an intuitive knack for seeing beyond and beneath first appearances while at the same time nerding out on the details. Most of all she sees and holds others in their highest until they can see it for themselves.

    Thanks for this blog. I’ve tweeted it to my world.

    Thanks for the gentle reminder Lorraine. Too often we wait until things are perfect before starting out, or stop dead in our tracks when they aren’t. Baby steps and self-kindness can get us through so much.
