Remember doing dandelion wishes?
All those tiny fairy like seed heads, wishes of course, and all just waiting to come true.
But here’s a thing. You’ve got to pick your wish first. You’ve got to hold it up, right there in the sky for all to see. This is the scary bit. People might laugh, they might scoff and say “No chance”, “What a dreamer”, “Who does she think she is” and other such niceties.
These can dent your wish/dream so you’ve got to be brave to pick it up and show it the light.
Looks a wee bit fragile there in the sky doesn’t it? But hey, look at all those seed heads in there, all those little bits of wishes that make up the Big One.
Holding it up there is just the first step, it’s a biggy but still just the first step.
Now you’ve got to blow!
Breath life into the project and see those baby wishes start to fly!
Now I know the trick as kids was to try to get all those little seed heads to fly off at once. Sometimes it doesn’t happen that way. Oh you may be someone who just blows real hard and all those wishes fly off and start creating amazement right now, immediately. But maybe not. Maybe it will take a few deep breaths and puffs to get those babies to fly.
They will fly, just takes a teensy bit more blowing and breathing life in there.
This week has been a week of holding my wishes/dreams up to the world and taking that deep breath.
There was the blog post that appeared on Good Stella at the beginning of the week, and yesterday, well yesterday I guest blogged on the amazing Suzy Greaves site, The Big Leap, and the response has been amazing.
My post on Suzy’s site is a wee bit of a rant really, it’s Dolphin meets Plankton, really you’ll just have to zap over there and read it. Promise you it’s well worth another cuppa as you read my take on ‘women of a certain age’.
But the thing is, I’ve put my wish/dream up there and out there and it is all very real now.
It’s gone from ‘Something I’ve been working on’ to ‘Woohoo it’s OUT THERE and real’.
Just look how empty that old dandelion head is now?
See how those baby wishes have flown!
They are Out There!
It’s only by being Out There that anything can happen.
Dreams can come true.
Just keep breathing life into them and watch those wishes fly!
