Wish Cast Wednesday
Jamie Ridler asks us "What do we wish to dare?" I believe life is all
about cycles and as Stevie Nicks asks in her song "Landslide" "Can I sail through the changes, can I handle the seasons of my life, I don't know." So many changes have ocurred in my life in the last two years it has been almost overwhelming. When a family illness took us by surprise in September 2007 I started searching for answers. Ron and I had already achieved some small success on Ebay with out Art. We lived in a Cottage that is a work in progress and we have beautiful gardens. Just as I was settling into a comfortable routine life changed in a profound way, hit with a brick would describe it. I knew I needed help, support. I joined some groups on Ebay and one of members welcomed me and reached out to me and I began to share with her on a personal level. One in particular and she knows who she is; I followed her all over the internet. That led me to what some of us knows as the "Black Hat Society Network" where I found another place of refuge. I was thinking at this point these women are nice enough but how can I learn from them when they are so much younger then me. I had no idea just how much I could learn. They took me by the hand and led me into a completely new way of life I had never even considered, a spiritual haven. Heather of Witch Hollow Primitives and Jennifer, founder of the Black Hat became my daily, online connections. They had no idea how much was unbalanced in my personal life. They accepted me just as I was and I finally found the place I could fly. I owe them both a tremendous amount of gratitude. The Universe sent them to me, of this I am sure.
Now I wish to dare to embrace this new life and not hide it but shout to the world "Don't judge other people with different spiritual beliefs then your own, if you do you will cheat yourself." I dare to keep believing I might actually succeed in the world of art, and hold on to this beautiful place I call home. That the other shoe isn't going to drop, I dare to trust again, to love again, to laugh again, to live again. And now as the circle takes me into middle age my 32 year old son is coming back home and he's bringing more. LOL Two small children and I dare to believe Ron and I can do this, we can handle it. Because I have a support system that makes me strong, because I believe the Universe is working and even if I don't understand the "whole picture" I understand little pieces here and there and it is going to be alright if I just keep daring to "Believe"!
