My Calling


Credit 

I hear a calling. I hear it as soon as I wake up in the morning and it lasts throughout the day. It’s a pleasant distraction in the quiet hours of the morning newspaper, an addictive humming during my commutes, a welcome mat when I return home and a lullaby when my eyelids get heavy. I see before me a path unfolding itself, opening out as I walk, green pastures or fields of marigold. I see myself armored in a desert – still walking, still humming that tune. I see myself create an inheritance for posterity, a foundation for the needy, a bridge for people separated. I hear the rumble of footsteps getting closer almost drowning the faint buzz of discontent! I hear the applaud of the gathered world while someone far away draws the curtain to keep the light away. I strain to hear the buzz, trace the unhappy. But I realize with joy that on this path I can only walk on one direction. I can look back but cannot retrace. I hear a voice telling me to focus and I do. I am headed towards www.socialpotpourri.com  

Have you ever felt this strongly about something? Do you think I should heed to the calling?

  16. Hi Kriti,

    Stopping by to visit you and liking your post. All I can say is that if a path is unfolding before you that keeps calling you, then you should do your best to follow that path.

    Not all of us are lucky enough to have a calling and those who do are very blessed.

    God bless.

  17. Great story! It is so inspiring and has/had a specific purpose. Are you at Social Potporri now? (I think I spelled that wrong.) I love knowing that every day is a new adventure. Depression sets in if I believe the lie that nothing new will happen; nothing changes.
