Time time time...
The time has come!
A new year begins, and we have things to get in order, don't we?
It depends of course, what you see as order.
I am not one for making New Year's resolutions. Let's be honest, I won't keep them. Will you? So, for me, no resolutions. Of course, I am super supportive of anyone who makes resolutions, and keeps them. Amazing!
For my non rule following self, I like something that I can work with. You?
To me, it's all about wishes.
Wishes make me feel like, there is a tinge of possibility in my hopes and dreams.
In turn, allowing me to feel more positive about a new year.
To me there are all types of wishes.
Some wishes are like a prayer, others are a yearning, a desire.
And still, there are others that are deep seeded hopes.
Such as the wishes we long for with every shooting star we catch a glimpse of. Or the wishes that find us every year when we blow out birthday candles.
Then there are the wishes that we squinch our eyes together for, as we clasp our hands together and murmur "please please please please......"
Those are the wishes we need to set free!
Make your wish.
Make endless wishes.
Make them for you, make them for others.
But by golly, make them!
The more of us that wish together, the grander our voice!
You do believe this to be true, don't you?
Of course you do, I knew I could count on you.
Let's jump on the carousel of dreams...
As they say, a dream is a wish your heart makes.
Dream big, dream small.
Then again, is any dream or wish too big or too small?
Let them spin faster and faster....
I know you believe.
I also know that there are times that believing, and tasting the magic, doesn't feel right. You know, the ups and downs of life.
But, if we hang on to a thread, there will be a day when the magic finds us again.
It is always with us, even if tucked ever so deep, isn't it?
I was listening to the radio the other day, and that song came on from the 70's that says-
"Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn't already have....."
I cried over the stove, whilst really ingesting that phrase.
A song I have heard 20 million times, and that phrase smacked me right upside the head for the very first time last week.
I thought, wow, ain't that the truth!?
We all have just what we need, all the time, tucked right inside of us.
All we have to do is believe, and have faith in ourselves.
Let's wish the best for ourselves and those we love. Health, happiness, less stress. Let's wish the best for our mother earth and all of it's people and creatures, and growing things.
Then, let's throw a bunch of extra wishes in for good measure.
No wish is too grand, too greedy, too silly.
Let's gather our wishes together, and then set them free this week.
What do you say?
It never hurts to try.
If you want to keep your wish private, you can wish for your hearts secret wish to come true.
Let's dream big wishes!!
As the quote says...
"If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough." - Lowell Lundstrum
I love that!
Now, let's wish and dream!
Happy New Year!!!
Thank you infinity for making this place what it is. Your thoughts and feelings and support through sharing comments is what holds this place together in many ways. Knowing you are there, sharing and being kindred is what inspires me to come back with tales and photos time and time again.
So, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
This place is my virtual home, and I am so glad that you stop in and get cozy!
I have to go get ready for our midnight shindig in the street, party of 2. Me and mister! So I must run for now.
Wish collecting, here we come!
Can't wait to share our wishes...
