Christine Kane: or Leap and The Net Will Appear
Everything happens for a reason, there are no mistakes in life, there are no accidents, there is no such thing as coincidence...
So, finding that a number of accidental clicks (not that I don't ever click accidentally) took me on a journey that brought me back to my writing with Hub Pages should not surprise me at all.
What follows is the path that lead me to Christine Kane, and my recent burst of hub energy, my newfound direction for my life, and my joy that knows no bounds. First, I must say Thank you to Christine for letting me tell my story, and share her with you as well. I have been sharing her videos on Facebook since first finding them.
Christian Kane Top 5
Journey back to me or Accidental Click?
First I will go back to April, when I ran out of money which meant I had to quit smoking, which meant I had several weeks of anxiety and withdrawals. In that time I ran from Hub Pages because there was some sort of "rivalry" going on that just made the tension too great to stay. With over 60 hubs under my belt, I now had nothing but time on my hands and nothing to do with my hands. Enter inbox dollars, and I was reading e-mails for money (still haven't collected on that) but there was one decent payout that could help, and that was Netflix.
I signed up for the trial and cut my cable down to the free basic provided by my homeowners Association, which incidentally lowered my electric bill as we don't watch television but a few hours a week now.
I went nuts with the two week free trial of Netflix, which lead me to the whole accidental click thing...
I was watching all of these movies and suddenly started seeing the guy from Leverage, the one who plays Eliot Spencer, Christian Kane. I decided to find out what else he'd done, because I only knew him from Leverage. Google turned up a 30 second video of him singing a few bars of "The Dance" (my favorite country song when it first came out) and I thought it was just Karaoke.
The next thing I know there's a clip of his top 5 and Eliot's, and he has his own YouTube Channel. I went to find out what else he'd done and found out he was a singer and has been in all kinds of TV shows I never had time to watch... Unfortunately what was on his channel was not all the songs I kept finding listed under his name. When I searched his name I came up with a song called Right Outta Nowhere.
Accidental click, because it was not Christian Kane, but Christine Kane. When she first started talking, with her guitar in hand, I thought that this might be a duet, and he would come on stage at some point. I still did not know that I was watching Christine Kane.
The Net Will Appear
I hope you listened to the song...
If you have not yet listened to the song, please click on it and listen as you read this. This whole thing, the series of hubs I am writing, the actual usage of my twitter account and even the acquisition of some decent writing software (borrowed, couldn't afford to buy) is because of this song.
I am going somewhere, all I needed to know was that I was free to go...
I hope what follows will inspire you, the way that it has me.
What The hell am I Doing With My Life
As life would have it, one video leads to another, just as one click leads to another. I had discovered this new and amazing musician who was funny and smart, and who thought like me (or like I would think if I hadn't been crippled emotionally by years of television viewing).
By the time I found out where to get her music, I found out that she had decided to give up on the whole concert thing and has just devoted all of her time to blogging. She has decided to spend her time mentoring women...
Hey, I need mentoring.
Her program is about empowering women to achieve their dreams...
I want to achieve my dreams... I need empowering... I am falling in love with this woman... No I am not turned on, I don't want to marry her, it's the most platonic love there is. I want to learn everything she knows. I have a crush on a girl. Seeing as that's never happened to me before, I will add that if there are any men out there who think like her, I am single. and I am learning. I am valuable. I have worth that no one can take away.
It isn't who you look like, or sound like, it's who you are. People have always left me feeling inadequate because they thought it was in my best interest to make me painfully aware of the fact that I was no movie star. Who I am is worth a lot more than I thought, so much more than I have been giving myself credit for. Who I am and what I am worth have nothing to do with external beauty.
How dare anyone ever try to make another person feel worthless. We all have our talents, our gifts. I do not have to be a fashion model, that is not my talent, nor is it my dream.
Thank you Christine Kane... You have made me see that knowing I am a writer far outweighs what anyone thinks of me. Of course I want to do a good job. I want to use my talent for good. I want to help others. But if there is anyone reading my work who does not like it, there are plenty of other places for them to go and read someone else's work.
The point is, I write and my readers will appear.
What is Wrong with TV
Out of the Ruins
No, I am not really in love with her, but I do love everything that she has done. She has put herself in the perfect position to be there for me to find her when I needed her the most. In this way I can bring her to you, when perhaps you need her too.
I know that sounds crazy and maybe it goes against everything that you have previously believed. Well, that's okay. You don't have to believe. You just have to try. See if it works.
Try her Vision Boards. I had never heard of one, but I used to make lists and then put them away, and find them later, having had all of the things on my list come to me. I did not know that what I was doing was so similar, until stumbling upon the video that follows, but I do know that when she says the average wait time is about a year, that's how long my lists would usually take to come into my life.
The End Result, a New Beginning
What ultimately happened was that I followed the series of songs down to Christine's Video invitation to her retreat and then to her blog. At this point there was a sort of invitation, which I filled out, thinking I would then be taken to a page asking me for money. I mean this is the internet, and that is what always happens when you put in your e-mail address for these self-help types, right?
That didn't happen. What happened was that I received a free PDF. I am sure that if I pursue this further, Christine does have things that would help me, that there would be a charge for, such as one of her retreats. By the time I get to that point, I will probably be working again, and it will be worth it. I will probably need a retreat! But so much more than the retreat, I will be so glad to meet the woman who wrote these songs, and told these jokes, and taught me that in order to get where you're going, you have to choose your destination.
The ironic part: I went back, to read her reply after asking if I could write about her here at Hub Pages, and she said she always wanted to understand Hub Pages better... So maybe I can help her there.
May I introduce you to Christine Kane. I don't think she's any relation to the actor who plays Eliot on Leverage. I didn't ask, just a guess. No, this was Serendipity. I don't believe in Coincidences.
