wow - has it been 5 days?? ok - here's a treat from StoryPeople:
It was a day filled with the glow of ordinary things & we passed them quietly from hand to hand for a long time & someone said she had picked a perfect day to be born & I think all of us felt the same.
happy birthday to you....
it has been quite an emotional up and down and all around, as my feet get steady and start moving forward...sorry to let go of an old dream that really didn't work for me anyway...excited about some upcoming possibilities and opportunities...trying to decide on a few - do they fit where my feet want to go, or are they still fragments and threads of the old thought? sometimes tempting and hard to know.
i will say this - i am feeling real good about some solid decisions i've made, and am hoping the universe cooperates with where i want to head.
it's kind of interesting to watch those makeover shows - the people kind. you look at the "before" shots and wonder why they never gave the hair back to the 80's? dreams are a lot like that...if held long enough in a dark spot, they don't gleam quite as much in the light of day, and you wonder why in the world you held onto it so long, and why (perhaps) you grew resentful of everything and everyone who "stood in the way" of you being able to make it happen...you know the excuses, and some are quite valid...but dreams need airing out every so often...trying them on for fit...seeing if they still work with your path and where you are headed...a dream from years ago may not be enough for your grown-up self - or may have seen too much time pass. or, it may be the perfect thing at the perfect time, and now you can run with it! there's a new show on TV called Touch. the show espouses that every thing and every person is connected by a golden thread, and that if this tiny thing changes here, then it will affect things down the thread. i believe that life is like that...that maybe a dream from this time in your life was there to bring you to point B, and point B walked you along till you got somewhere else, and on & on. Maybe the purpose of working the dream was not to be a world class whatever, but to make connections and put you in situations that will take you to the real Purpose of your life. maybe. you decide. but whether or not you ever get to follow your dream, or whether or not your dream becomes a wild success or not, give honor and gratitude to it, and don't be frustrated & resentful if it doesn't look like what you planned. for it is the dream that is taking you along your true path - wherever that may lead.
