We all have a dream, a wish...
I think, like the stars in the sky, we need to align ourselves with others. Others, who share our passion. Sometimes it is intimidating n' scary! We grow, when we step outside of ourselves and toss ourselves into the winds of change. I think Gunilla Norris describes nature so beautifully. In her book, "Mystic Garden" she talks about the quieting of autumn. I love this quote of hers.
"Only the black seed heads stand alone on their stalk-a constellation of black stars."~Gunilla Norris
We all have potential, like the black stars! We just have to be brave and keep reaching and
maybe, just maybe, our dream might come true!
For most of us, our passion is a solo game. We write, paint, create our vision alone. It is when we gather and share we grow, we shine. We can not shine alone! We think we can, but we can't~
I was on the fence, about it! Why, you ask?
This is the time of year, holiday shopping begins. I felt guilty about spending the money. Then I saw signs, that made me think again.
I was creating some gift tags, at my kitchen table. I decided to paint, so I laid out some newspapers. I'm a messy crafter :D I was layering the paper on the table, when this headline grabbed my attention.
DECORATE WITH AN EDGE
The newspaper was dated 5/15/11. It was an article about Holly Becker and her latest book. The pairing of Holly's name and the word edge, got me. And I have a thing about the numbers 3 n' 5. I went back online to read about the course. It started on October 5th. There were three 5s. I signed up! I know that might sound odd, to some of you. My intuition told me I should do this, but I wasn't listening. The signs really grabbed my attention!
I hope you will push yourself, to try new things, be open to signs of change. Yes, the whispers of your heart trying to take you into the winds of change! Yes, without change we get root rot, we don't grow. I hope you will be brave and follow your GPS-Gifts, Passion and Spirit! (I still need to re-pot a few other plants, ;D) Do you listen to your intuition? Have you noticed signs?
