A Wish ~ Your Unfulfilled Reality!

image

A wish is an, as yet, unfulfilled reality just lying in wait foryourright moment to make it happen.” ~ Plh

There are those who believe in fate and there are those who believe nothing will happen unless you’re out there making it happen.

For myself, I think it’s somewhere in between the two. Wishing and dreaming often set in  motion the creative application of your imagination. This, in turn, can inspire within you a passion to achieve – the inspiration you’ve been waiting for to make things happen.

The only thing left then, is for you to believe you can do it. And of course you can!!!! For certain. Your wishes, your desires, your reality – YOURS!

Hope your week is going well, take care of you.
With much affection,

Never Stop Wishing Upon a Star

As a child my favorite song was from the Walt Disney Movie, Pinocchio. The song is “When You Wish Upon A Star” sung by Jiminy Cricket.

When I first heard the words I just knew wishes could come true.

I still do.

~ Enjoy your weekend and may your dreams all come true.

The Dichotomy of Hope – A Haibun for our Tomorrows.

Funny thing about “Hope”. It is both fragile beyond imagining and yet often has a tenacity and strength seemingly unbelievable.

How can this be?

Perhaps an analogy made with a puffball, to enlighten.

A Wish upon a Puffball – One single seed!

Fingers carefully grasped the fragile puffball’s stem, not wanting to disturb the ethereal seeds too soon. My wish might not be heard, but blown away. The wish made, I blew gently, scattering the fair dandelion seeds upon moist morning breezes.

Wishful thinking indeed for hopes to be realized, yet all that is needed for the puffball is but a single seed. A lone survivor tossed in the unpredictable winds of nature. It only takes one … one seed to reach the earth for regrowth and fruition.

And so it is with hope. A seed of potential and possibility, cast upon the winds of fortune.

May our hopes, dreams and wishes reach fruition. All that is needed is one single seed!

hope strengthens me

a most delicate framework

of possibilities

Have a great day today and even better tomorrow,

I lay me down

By mxruben

I lay me down

look up at skies

no end in view

before my eyes.

*

Just perfect blue

or so it seems

my lying here

with just my dreams.

Worries gone

they’ve disappeared

There’s only now

without the fears.

*

If I might wish

and make it so

my peaceful state

to grow and grow.

*

Then I will rise

renewed ’til when

I lay me down

and dream again.

A most happy weekend everyone,

The first thing each morning …

We tell ourselves how the rest of the day is going to go … or we let the day decide for us!

Today may your thoughts and actions take you to exactly the places you want to be – all day. From your first morning breath to your last thought before you go to sleep tonight.

From Morning to Night ~ My wishes to you!

“I wish you morning dewdrops to moisten the rough textures of your day,
golden sunbeams to brighten the pathway of your travels,
and starry skied moonbeams to fly you away to your fondest dreams!”

A Touch of Inspiration …

IMG_0740

What really inspires you? What warms you up inside and makes you feel so good that you just want to … well do whatever it is that you feel inspired to do?

But what causes the spark? What lights the fire inside? What makes the something inside of you come alive with desire? A desire so strong it burns, a driving need that grows within and urges you on. A special something? What is it?

We all have it inside us, waiting to come out,

~

A quiet gentle touch

whispering as it came.

Mmm, so very delicate

I was enraptured just the same.

It played upon my senses

calling out my name.

~

a current, ebbing flows

stirring my wishes and wants.

Changing dreams into great desires,

my inspiration into burning fires,

because of this feeling that grows.

A touch of Inspiration!

I hope this brief little touch inspires you today,

all my best to you, thanks for stopping by!

Being an Artist … the good … the hard … the special!

file0002058071745Chances are if you’re reading this you’re an artist. With words, or with a camera, a brush, digital technology, the musical note, acting, singing, dancing, and/or with a hundred other creative endeavors.

You’re an artist and you “feel things” deeply inside! And you feel the need to express those feelings. At the same time you are not terribly good at expressing yourself when it comes to your talent, your artistry. And you are insecure about what people will say or think – but you still want to know, a dichotomy of wishes,dreams and desires. You really want others to know you and what you are doing. And often you wait for some one else to acknowledge your talent before you acknowledge it for yourself!

In the blogging world, don’t wait for someone to “find” you. Go find them first. Let them discover youh because you’ve given them a pathway to follow. The path is your comments in the comment section of their blog. You’ve read their words, viewed and listened to their talent and appreciated them.

In return they will come to check you out. You’re special and so are they. A mutual admiration society. And if they are too busy to follow you frequently than understand that too. It is a fact in the blogging world, some have more time than others.

Share your gift freely when you blog and embrace the talent being given by others! It works. It really does! Keep the specialness of you alive by sharing it with others.

I should know I’m an Artist too and feel the same way you do. Good luck,

~ Penny
