It’s Enough

So often things shared are a mirage, a smoke screen, a distraction.

Some times people are kept at a distance or very, very close to protect the upper hand.

Never having secrets prevents needing to keep them.

Live life out loud, do whatever it is, boldly and with pride, chin up and own it.

Mirages are empty dreams, having the upper hand is a false sense of security and secrets can sink a nation…

Just be who you are , the real you – it’s enough…

Be The Wizard

There are many theories on the Wizard of Oz and it’s meanings and what’s behind it all. I love this movie. When I think about it, it’s not so complicated.

I see a young lady that’s having a real bad day, (she’s probably hormonal), and like many young ladies she over exaggerates her day in her mind and then falls asleep. Her bad day, becomes a bad dream, a fantasy.

A fantasy of over exaggerated notions turned into dream reality. It’s a story of a girl and the happenstance friends she meets along this journey. Those friends are each in need something, things that each of us have struggled with at least once. Who hasn’t felt dumb, unloved, scared and lost?

Separately they are all broken and lost, just like many of us. Together they form a bond, they become a team. A team of misfits. A team that together could do anything. They could travel through unknown lands and make it an adventure. As long as they were together, they are invincible. Even evil could not defeat them.

There’s a good witch and a bad witch, we all have a lil good and evil in our lives. They were told to follow the path laid before them, weren’t we all at some point?

My favorite part is when they go to see the all mighty Wizard, for a brain, a heart, some courage, and a way to get home. This long scary journey to be granted the basic necessities of life, by a big, bad, scary wizard.

The truth is that he is little man with a booming voice, standing on a bucket. He is hidden by a cloak and has no power at all. He has only given them the belief in what was already within themselves. He granted their wishes simply by giving them permission to believe that one was smart, one could love, one was brave and that home is truly in your heart.

We must believe in ourselves, and sometimes it takes someone hidden behind a cloak and a booming voice to help us see what is already there. When Dorothy woke from her dream, her perspective had shifted and the world was once again right.

Who is on your team, following the same path to achieve their dreams? It doesn’t matter what each team member is lacking, what matters is what the team brings as a whole. Together you can accomplish anything, yes you can even defeat flying monkeys!!

For You

Whatever you do, do it well. Where ever you go, enjoy the place. Whenever you catch a glimpse of something new, make an effort to learn something more about it. It doesn’t matter what, where, or when be the very best you can be – regardless of everyone else in the world you owe it to yourself! 😉


Your Own Mind

When you become trapped, locked away within the confines of your own mind there is little freedom or choice of escape.

Excitement and exasperation both fantasies or a figment of ones imagination. Distorted mutations of reality.

Reality is what we decide it is, good or bad, happy of sad. You can pout in the rain or plan to marvel at the rainbow.

I Feel

If you get too close, I can feel what you don’t say.

When you say what you think I want to hear, but your spirit is screaming that you’re a liar, I hear your spirit not your words.

Your tough exterior doesn’t protect what you don’t say, I feel it.

When you post and then try to hide – your feelings to that are also tied, I feel it.

When you’re too busy, and excuses run deep – understand I know you’re a wolf and not a sheep.

Our spirits speak what our hearts fear, sometimes I wish I couldn’t hear…..

Wake Up

Sometimes in life we work very hard to be or do something. We will often chase that something to the ends of the earth. Given a good enough reason we will do most anything to make it happen.

When you wake up and discover that the reason you did all those things has changed and you no longer need to make it happen, the desire fades.

We often have to check our why, renew ourselves and refresh our purpose. Do something that matters to you and chase the dreams that make your heart soar. Life is short. Things and reasons change, be flexible and give yourself a break once in a while – you’ve earned it.

When the days fade into weeks, weeks become months, and months turn into years. Years, months, weeks, and days become a mass of scattered time and memories. They are no longer sorted in an orderly fashion. Yesterday and last week look so much a like.

The memories no longer stack upon on a time line. They’re now floaters in an empty calendar of our lives.

When do we become old? When does it happen. Was it so gradual that we didn’t notice, or did it happen over night – I do not find these changes on my time line of life…
