Not for the first time, nor I’m sure for the last,  I woke up today wishing you could see my dreams.  They are as vivid as any movie or TV show.  But sadly, I can’t figure out how to describe them to you, other than sharing the messages as I’ve been doing.

             This afternoon, and hours before that, the images just didn’t stop.  Not all of them were good.  In fact, some were the exact opposite of nice.  It seemed as if they needed to be though, in order for me to really absorb the full emotion of this one.

Any one is capable of any thing.

             With enough drive  or diligence, we could be pushed to greatness.  Or, conversely, pushed to horror.

             Sure there are some limits, like physical body size and age, but for the most part we are FAR more qualified for a huge assortment of actions than we might imagine.   Some good and some bad.  But we COULD extend accomplishments way beyond what we think we can.

             Combining the daily draw with our channeled message gives us one large boost of a recommendation.

“Achievement  ~

Chase your dreams.

You may be surprised by where they lead you.”

             A few days ago I was having a conversation with someone (of course I don’t remember who it was) and we were talking about why someone would do a job they hate.  For like, 30 years?!

             There is no reason for this, as far as I can see.  Money?  Not an excuse.  Sorry but I don’t believe that for a second.  And this comes from someone who has NEVER lived above the national poverty line in over 52 years.

             The monetary aspect of it doesn’t even register, as far as I’m concerned.  Our lives are to a joyous, educational, and entertaining path of discovery and love.  Not a painful drudge to the finish line.

Today’s Food Swap:

is a view of my mom’s kitchen table.  (She puts plants on it as a centerpiece if she doesn’t have anything growing in her yard that she can shove into a vase.)

crochet tablecloths, apple cake, plants centerpieces
Can you see the table-cloth? It’s crochet. Dan made it for her.
(Not sure who made the blue doily in the middle, but I’d bet it wasn’t her, and I know it wasn’t him.)

             This is apple cake.  Don’t ask for the recipe because she won’t be have it.  Mom can’t follow them.  The missing piece is where my father got tired of waiting for us to show up.

             We brought her some of our baked mac and cheese dish, she used the apples Emmy gave her to create a yummy something.  Sharing = win win!

  1. It’s important to note that whenever I see something like “Chase your dreams”, something inside me recoils. I believe it’s fear. I hate having no money (and right now, I am not able to support myself, so basically, I hate having no income). I’m terrified about my future. I really cannot live where I am for a long, indefinite time. So I want a job that provides me with a large income. But chasing my dreams? Sigh. That would be fiction, which I have been resisting harder and harder the older I have become. (My mind is a seriously dark and tangled forest.) And maybe illustration. I don’t know how to live (especially in this expensive place) and do those things.

    You are correct, it IS fear. And it needs to be gone. It’s exactly what’s holding you back. Dwelling in a poverty mindset (and calling your dreams fiction) are WHY you keep recoiling from actually LIVING your dream.

    Convoluted yes, but that’s what is happening.

    1. I do get the whole Looking at Scary Future thing. It comes with aging.

      But you don’t just have material dreams, right? You have dreams of being happy? Of coping better? Of overcoming your fears? From where I stand it looks like you are making some of your dreams come true. Little by little. xxoo

  2. I’m chasing my dream, but I’m broke doing it. ; ) Guess it’s okay, because at least I’m happy.

    That’s exactly it. Because you are not homeless and no one died.
