Our dreams are often filtered through what we think is possible for us to achieve. If we want more substantial dreams, and I do, we need to change the way we think about ourselves and about our capacity. We need to increase our tolerance for disappointment, uncertainty and discomfort. We also need to surround ourselves with the right people.
The signs of life this week filled me with more hope than you can imagine. It has been a long, hard period – what with the winter, the pandemic and the loss and grief we’ve had to face. There have been times when I felt like none of it would end.
It is a gift to be able to find magic in the ordinary things of life. My Aunt Shirl left a trail of creativity and imagination in my young life. Although we haven’t talked much in my adult years, the sweet fragrance of those times still captivates me to this day.
