Find Destiny Around the Corner

Find Destiny Around the Corner


Just now,
it whispered itself
out of my mouth—
a funny word,
I heard
as a young boy
and didn’t know.
It stayed with me—
that weird word
I never learned
in a formal way—
till I somehow
felt its meaning.
Moments ago,
to serve the haunting,
I looked it up.
Do you have a
word like that,
one that forces
its way out of you?

To Ponder

            1.   Seemingly, some things come along out of nowhere
                  and make a claim on us.

            2.   I have found myself responding to a question about
                  which I know little, getting into it, and seeing that I know
                  quite a bit .

            3.   What, lying beneath the surface, are you prepared to
                  take on to which you bring unique strengths?

            4.   There’s a word for seeing what others—and even you—
                  haven’t seen and now do: Creativity!

            5.   There’s often an uncanny timeliness between what
                  freshly has been discovered and some need that new
                  knowledge serves.

            6.   Be receptive to a funny sound you’ve never heard
                  before, a taste for a new dish, going where you’ve never

            7.   See how natural it can be to make a new friend of
                  someone you’ve always avoided.
