Well, what can I say? Those of you who know me will not be surprised to read this post, especially my family! I’ve been quite vocal about being true to ourselves, and letting our own uniqueness shine. Indeed. Then on the other end of dreamland I have quite often expressed that I want to be a fairy in my next life. Now, in the unlikely event that some cosmic wires get crossed in the awesomeness of time and space, I thought I had better give my best attempt to live some of that dream now.
I believe that this all started when I was 4 years old and my mom took me to my first movie at a theatre. The movie was Thumbelina or some sort of animated version of that with fairies and all things wonderful. I could not believe the amazing experience I was having and all the excitement on the big screen and how things were so big and pretty and “how does this happen mom” and “can we do this again mom” and “I want to do that too mom” and…. well apparently I would not quit talking (really sorry about that mom). The fairy dream could originate from realizing and knowing how magical life truly is or from loving all things that sparkle and glitter. I don’t know, perhaps a bit of both!
Always be yourself………everyone else is taken!
Of course it’s so important to always be yourself. I’ve written before about this important topic and of sharing your gifts and talents with the world. It’s so exciting to realize who we truly are and what our calling is in the world. To find alignment with our talents and purpose and to not allow others to sway us from our own light. To be open to learning, growing, evolving, re-thinking, refreshing, renewing or simply starting over. That’s the real “magic” of life. So perhaps I would like to use my wand to sprinkle this epiphany on the world. At the same time to share hope, peace and happiness with everyone because we are all in this journey together my friends. Wow, yeah that sounds like the most AWESOME plan!
So here’s the deal. Sometimes it really is fun to connect to our youth, to be playful and silly, to share little bits of our fun and whimsical self with others, to dream and let those dreams manifest in some way. It connects us as human beings. There are certainly lots of serious things that will pop up in our lives, we all know that. That’s why self-care, loving relationships and living in gratitude and kindness are so important. But it’s sure exciting to consider (and believe in) the journey that “pretending” will take us on!
So let’s just go with this. I thank you for taking the time to read a little bit of “whimsy” about me. I just need to figure out the flying part (a temporary obstacle); everything else should be good to go.
Should you see me out with there with wings and a wand….sprinkling love, hope, happiness, peace, glitter and pixie dust…..just smile and wave my friends, just smile and wave!
Yours in dreaming & believing (& sparkles),
