While sipping the coffee this morning and thinking about my list of projects and to do’s, I thought about the importance of seeing my little ideas to fruition. There was a time in my life when I didn’t realize how content I’d become with just thinking about ideas (and not doing a damn thing about them)…as if those ideas would just magically materialize out of thin air like some Harry Potter fantasy. There are no magic wands…there’s just work. Effort. Consistency. It’s easy to want to do something…it’s more of a challenge to formulate a plan. A dream is just a pretty picture trapped in our heads until we take the time to mold them into reality. Let’s get to work.
Walls; we’ve all got them, right? I’m not talking about the kind of walls that we hang our pictures on, but the ones that we create for ourselves. Our mental barriers that, oddly enough, can often be stronger than the ones that line our humble abodes. For many reasons, we construct walls to keep stuff in, or to keep stuff out. Some are based on past experiences, while many are raised by fears. Either way, they’re ultimately a hindrance; they prevent a freedom of true expression. We will atrophy behind them, thinking that we’re protected, until we earn our release. Let’s get out of there, right? Think about it. Best of days to all, and thanks for reading!
It’s summer here…and it’s hot. Seasons change; and the older we get, the faster they seem to go, right? But one thing’s for certain…the cycle of seasons will continue. Life goes on. And what a beautiful cycle it all is (even though autumn is the BEST), so let’s enjoy each sweaty (or frosty, depending on where you are) moment. Read on if you’d like, and best of days to all.
Sometimes you need to just stop what you’re doing, take a few deep breaths, and look up at the sky. Let its colors cleanse the palette of your mind. Put down the phone (unless you’re using it to read this post, wink wink), close the laptop, turn off the computer…or the TV…and relax. Unplug. It tends to put things into perspective for me…maybe it will for you too. Best of days to you all, and thank you for reading.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep in a library? Apparently, so did the owners of this week’s space. And what a lovely dream that they’ve manifested; from this photo alone, it’s pretty obvious that they love books. To such a degree that they’ve lined their bedroom with them…now that’s love. If only all of that information would cascade down over the shelves each night, like a storm of words, and fill one’s head with all of their wisdom. This, friends, is a book lover’s room.
