I think I've mentioned before that I hate talking on the phone...it's become somewhat of a phobia. I equate this "fear" to a baby bird scared to fly out of the nest for the first time. I'd finally found my voice within in my photos and on my own blog...but to talk to someone on the phone literally terrified me. But like all baby birdies do, I put on my big girl panties and returned her call...after I let it go to voicemail first. Baby steps.
Reflecting back, I know exactly the reason I was so anxious about my phone call with Tammy. Weeks earlier, I'd made a personal commitment...one that would open (even push) doors and expand my circle of influence. These types of commitment are rarely ignored and often come with some sort of outward response. The Mortal Muses weren't even on my radar. Of course I was a fan, but I'd never considered being a part of such a creative group of women. Either way, Tammy had unknowingly responded to my request.

I've learned over the past six months that we can't always predict the opportunities that will be presented to us. But, when opportunity knocks, we should open the door and explore the possibilities. I am so thankful that I answered Tammy's call. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the Mortal Muses this past year and even more excited to see where it will take us next year. Whether the skies be blue or gray, the road is wide open.
