Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head and keeps pecking away until he finishes the job he starts~Coleman Cox
I wasn’t planning to write a blog post today… Today was set aside to plan out what my goals will be for the next year and how to achieve them.
Basically, I’ve been sitting in my chair and not really accomplishing much. For some reason, I’m hitting a blockage today and can’t get serious about planning my future…
And then I heard the tapping. Something outside was making quite a fuss, so I went out to see what was disturbing my inactivity.
It was a tiny woodpecker. This little bird managed to make so much noise I heard it inside my house, with the windows shut, while I was trying to concentrate on planning my future.
I watched him for a while and went back inside to look up what message the bird was bringing me… Woodpecker came by to tell me ( from this site):
It is time to really pay attention because opportunity has come knocking along with it. It is signaling you that great changes are happening in your life and it is up to you to seize the moment. Whether it is the renewal of an old project, the finishing of a new project or simply a serendipitous meeting with someone in your life. Whatever way you perceive it know that the door is wide open for you right now and that success is yours for the asking.
This is the exact message I needed to hear today. Call it synchronicity, or coincidence or whatever makes you comfortable.
For me, I can’t believe there isn’t more than coincidence at work… I sat struggling with my future plans, a woodpecker managed to catch my attention, lure me outside and inspired me to look up the meaning of its message… And the message is one I really needed to hear today… And I haven’t seen a woodpecker in months.
Wonderful things happen when we pay attention. Keep an eye and an ear open for messages. You may be surprised at what you discover…
