Time to mosey down into the weekend!
Oh yes, I know everyone has their
rush through Friday happening
but then by around 6pm
those same folks are wanting time to just slow down; to savor each moment and make the week-end last as long as possible!
Enjoying each minute and stretching it out like the waters edge seen from a distance and laying back relaxing!
The kind of weekend made for a slow ride on a brilliant beach where laughs are many, or moments of great solitude can be found and shared with nature perhaps!
We need those times to refill the well within after a week of running and doing and being with so many.
In workplaces, in volunteer roles, in mentoring others, in fighting battles of illness and stress.
Moments of just being still or doing things that replenish and restore the spirit.
It may be a drive around town,
a dinner with friends,
a good movie while laying on the couch!
Perhaps a day on the waters,
a ride on a horse as one of those experiences that you’ve had forever in your heart list finally realized that comes true.
For others maybe it is an experience that allows you to step through fear and into the power of your intention by doing rather than shying away from a thing or experience!
We are only limited by our imaginations
and oh what imaginations we have if we but allow them out to play!
The sights and sounds of wonder, of nature and life at its best,
memories to last a life time and then some; when we step out of the comfort zone and into the magic.
A weekend is upon us once again and I can’t help but wonder of the magic folks are out there making in their own lives as they fire up grills, get out on the waters, crawl to the highest peaks of mountain tops,
ride those beautiful paint ponies along seashores with “wow” in their hearts.
I can’t help but wonder how those who are chronically ill use those images to go away in their minds for a little while to alleviate pain for themselves
and travel to wonderful places in their minds and dance on grand ballroom floors from their beds
and enjoy all the things that able bodied people often take for granted
in all the ways possible
with the use of videos, photographs
and the brilliance of the imagination
and books, and stories of others
along with their memories
and those who love them
that will do all that they can to include them in creative ways
in experiences that will be savored over time.
Life is so precious
as are those who live it fully.
the views are always changing
and the magic is yours for the making.
“Most horses don’t walk backwards voluntarily, because what they can’t see doesn’t exist.”
We could learn a lot from horses don’t ya think?
Gives ya a little bit to think about on this Friday anyways,
what happens in the past doesn’t exist anymore, so why focus on it,
move forward, stay the course of your dreams, your life, your peace of mind friends!
Grace, Kindness, Compassion
wild and zany times
all there for the living
and the being
in the quiet and the loud
make some joyous noise
while giving thanks
for all that you are!
