Take Emotional Risks

 

Open your heart and arms to new people and experiences. While it might seem safer to remain curled up in your cocoon, it is so much more richly rewarding to reach beyond your comfort zone. Recall that each person you now know and love was once a stranger to you. Can you imagine your life without them? Was it worth the risk to take that leap of faith to welcome them in?

    I will reach out to an intriguingly endearing spirit and thus open the possibility of further enriching my own life.

Bucket List
I awoke in the wee hours this morning, from a dream about my parents. Both passed in the last few years; my dad in 2008 and my mom in 2010.

Living in Your God-ness
There are some people who come into our lives at a point in time when we are entering a new way of being. They plant seeds and are not necessarily a regular part of our days. Kind of like music in the background that puts a smile on your face when you hear it. Such has been the case with my friend
