No one will be truly shocked to hear me make a blanket statement like, “Life likes to throw curveballs.” We’ve all experienced it to some degree or another. But what are we supposed to do when our carefully laid plans run amok? Make lemonade?

For the last several months, I’ve been taking an inventory of my life with the intent of exploring a more thorough definition of my purpose. I’ve know my personal purpose in life for many years, but I find it necessary that I take an occasional revisitation of my purpose and reevaluation of whether or not my life is accomplishing that. And, as frequently happens, while assessing, many things paused. Editing included. I worked on books that I’d already committed to, but didn’t take on any new ones professionally. I did not advertise for or pursue new customers. 

And, as frequently happens when I do an assessment, I find that a few minor things can go, but the majority of my time and efforts are in line with my life purpose. Or, at least accomplishing a goal in line with it. So, never fear, MrsAWiggins’ Continuity Editing shall continue.

And, as always happens when I take a Life Inventory, something happened that confirmed that I was on the right track. A friend sent me a book to beta read. And I found a continuity issue that was glaring enough I had to inform the author right away. It’s the little conversations like this that constantly remind me that I love and am talented at what I do. Otherwise, this would just be some distraction in my life. But it’s my purpose.
