Peace & Grace

Things have been rather slow lately. Seems that after the Holidays it has slowed down to a restful lull in the routine. Everything is back on track, the schedule is fairly clear, everyone is comfortably settled back into their daily cycle and it is peaceful to say the least. I hope everyone is finding some grace and beauty in their world around them.

If you dream it

The end of October I posted about having a dream of someone from my past. Dream interpretations on a few different websites mentioned unresolved issues that might be there. But everything had been resolved years ago. There was nothing left to go over, no pressing issues to figure out, no terms to agree on, everything was just Done. It was over, we had both moved on. We were each ok with that and there was nothing to resolve.

When I dreamt of this person from my past- we were in a strange place, nowhere that I know of. He passed me by on the street, said nothing, just looked blankly at me as he walked on by. I had only seen him, yet I knew. That was enough.

Thoughtful words

I hope everyone has had a Happy New Years celebration, one they enjoyed. Seven days into the new year and I hear people all around me talking about their resolutions, most of which may last a few days tops, if that long.

Last year was the second year I engaged in a new tradition a friend of mine had passed along to me. Selecting a word or phrase for the year.  It's a word you choose to have in your life, something you want to see, hear, do or be more of. A word that inspires you, soothes you, eases your pain, grief or sorrow and allows you to be yourself, heal, grow, learn and expand.

Throughout the year, you will notice how many times the word itself comes into play in the array of circumstances in your life. How the word applies, how the very definition of it even changes and how you see yourself progressing, gravitating and even moving toward that word. It's amazing how once you try it, you will not likely go back to the idea of resolutions.  Just a thought.
