I’m going to tell you one of my big dark secrets. I love Broadway musicals. Okay. I don’t simply love them. They are woven into my daily life. I have discovered over the course of my 50 odd years of living that there indeed is a Broadway show tune for every situation.
My favorite Broadway musical by far is “Annie”. Yeah. I know. But it’s true. As a show it has everything. Orphans. A dog. An evil villain. The richest dude in the planet. And of course my all time favorite song “Tomorrow”. I see you rolling your eyes. But that song has gotten me through some rough times. It is an anthem of optimism and belief. Belief that something better is only a day away. That has become the cornerstone of my life. And of my work as a Vitki.
Optimism and belief play a role in Vitki work in several ways. First you need, at least in my experience, to approach this calling with your head held high and eyes focused forward. There are plenty of nay sayers and doom queens ready to try to pull you down. Having an optimistic outlook can see you through such rough patches. Or suppose you’re having a dry spell where nothing seems to be working or clicking. Optimism is just the key to put things back into their proper perspective. It is a tonic for a weary soul and spirit.
Belief is also vital. Belief that you are in the right path. Belief that you’re able to do such extraordinary things as travel the nine realms. Belief that your magical sendings create a difference in your multiverse. Belief for me is one of the reasons I’m able to be a strong Vitki. I believe I am. And reality follows suit.
So maybe I’m a little bit like Annie. Always certain of myself and the multiverse as well. I’d much rather be that than a overly depressed realist. I see reality differently. And that’s part of being a Vitki.
