The dreaming, the not letting go, the believing, the hanging on no matter how hard it seems, the self love, the hope.
These are all things swimming through my brain, the way snow flutters about in a snow globe.
A slap on the cheek.
Wake up, and hold on, it all says.
At least, that's how it feels for me.
What about you?
Have you had a reality check lately?
Sometimes, we need a jolt.
Sometimes when it rains it pours.
But somewhere, somewhere, there is light.
Bad things make good things better.
Sometimes life gives us so much more than we can chew.
When I had the health scare happen, other things are/were happening in my world at the same time.
Stress found me.
This, that and the other.
I wake up at 2 and 3 in the morning, not common for me as I normally sleep like a bear.
I have thoughts thoughts thoughts.
I see the gift.
It's hard to see.
But, if I look closely, it is there.
Oh yes, clear as day.
An angel or two doesn't hurt either, does it?
Yes, I see it.
A message for me, a message for you.
Don't stop dreaming.
Do things that will help you capture your dreams.
I personally love the little dreams.
They weave together in the most magical way.
But the big dreams are good too.
I love this saying...
"If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough."
All the things going on in my world are showing me that, I have to keep dreaming.
I have to keep believing.
It is who I am.
It is who we all are.
We all want something beautiful.
(Did I just quote a song there?, Love that song)
But we do, don't we?
We all deserve something beautiful.
In our hearts.
In our lives.
A peace in our soul.
A safety in our mind.
A fulfillment in our living.
For me, it all comes back to the dream.
Talks with the heavens.
A hug for my own self.
Everyone feels hopeless sometimes.
But somewhere, somehow, in some way, we have to hang on to the dream.
Little dreams creep in.
A happy heart for today.
A good song that makes us want to get up and sway a little.
Maybe even sing out loud.
A skip in our step.
A great big hug from someone we love.
A shooting star...
Just pretend a shooting star is speeding by you.
Wish with your heart.
And hold on.........
I am going to try this too.
It feels like a good day to remind ourselves to hold on to whatever our heart wishes are, doesn't it?
I have this song in my head...
Air guitar anyone?
ps: Tender Loves...
I have stolen a few of these out of the garden.
Ripe ones of course.
They smell and taste unlike anything don't they?
When they come out of the earth like that, organically?
I got my roots from a neighbor man, he was tossing them in a big bag, no use for them as he had so many of the plants growing in his own garden.
I took a huge bag of brown sad roots home, soaked the roots (as they were so dry), planted them the next day.
Slowly the plants emerged, bigger each day.
And now months later, free strawberries.
