People, Places, Things

I just looked over this blog and for about 3 weeks I've just been posting photos. While they are fun and a very narrow slice of my life, they are not the complete picture (pardon the pun).

Things are in flux in my world. Things I am working out and not ready for publication. And in case you just got concerned, all good things.

Freedom, happiness, following my bliss. There are a lot of rules and regulations that suggest you can't have it all. And to be fair, you can't have it all, where would you put it? But if you boil down what makes you happy, if you distill the essence of bliss, cast off what is holding you back and you will find freedom.

My mother says I am about to embark an a great adventure. Stick around. It's gonna be a great time.

Box it up, I'll take it!

The windmill of my mind...

Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel,
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel,
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon,
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face,
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space,

Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.

What if...

What if you could make a big bold plan, start moving forward and everything in your plan came true. Would you still do it?

You know those nice little platitudes that say "What would you try today, if you knew you could not fail?" I've read that. I thought about that. And I didn't do anything. At times, I've held back because the consequences of succeeding seemed more frightening than the failure.

We've got big changes afoot around here. We started talking change back in October. We got serious in November. I kept saying, "If you could do ANYTHING you wanted to do, what would it be?" The answers surprised us, amused us and at times have stopped us cold in our tracks. But we did not give up.

We made a dream plan. It looked good. Then we added to it. We dreamed and we dreamed bigger. Than we added to it. We dreamed as if we had no limits. And now each thing we have planned is coming true.

I'm not saying we dreamed we'd won the lottery or became members of Britain's Royal Family. We had a sense of scale to this plan. At the heart of the plan was the core dream, "I want to be happy. I want to enjoy my life," and we circled out from there.

Part of our big plan involves reductions. Realizing what inspires us and what holds us back. Shedding things and attitudes that weigh us down so we can move through our lives lighter and faster.

I know you are expecting some big reveal of what our plans are, and I apologize, not today. Probably not this month. This month is filled with work and tasks and details. At times it's all so overwhelming i can't breathe, but then the adrenaline kicks in and it all comes together.

I feel like we've been sitting back and watching life, a little too comfortable for a little too long. I am ready to feel a little fear, enjoy a lot of joy, give back to those around me and define MY life on My terms.

So far, so good.

What if you could change your life right now? Here's a newsflash, you can. We are.
