Today, I had the most awesome blessing of enjoying a day filled with silence. Oprah once said: “Alone time is when I distance myself from the voices of the world so I can hear my own”. The house was so quiet I could hear even the most subtle creak or drip. It was a prime opportunity to spend the day in meditation and self-reflection. I have never (until today) spent a better part of the day in silence. I feel so relaxed and calm but most of all I have come to realize a better sense of direction for my life which not too long ago was at a crossroads. I enjoyed beautiful visions during meditation and was compelled to create afterward. I have included a pic of that creation. Looking at it a little while later, I realize it is my life; a life more serene, more alive and one that is coming out of the woods, confident in the dreams I am compelled to pursue. A perfect day… I feel so happy!
What makes you happy? Share your thoughts 🙂
Happy New Year to one and all! New goals, new dreams… Which ones will make it on this year’s list? Which ones will make it on your long term list and which outrageous dreams are too scary to even put on a list? We all have them; those dreams that whisper to us when we think we’re not listening. Dreams that scare us so much we wish we had the courage to accomplish and yet back down when given the opportunity to shine.
Michelangelo said: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
To that, I say: achieve your smaller goals and get inspired to do more. Baby steps! Write down the dreams that scare you, the ones you don’t think are possible and open your mind up to the possibility that at some point throughout the next 365 days (minus 9), the universe will drop ideas in your lap to help you fulfill them! Maybe it will take longer than this year to get it done but the way I see it, the time will pass regardless!
