It’s Friday! It’s Friiiiday! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and my plants are watered and happy as I sit here in my office. Do you feel it? That spring energy…the moon as it moves from darkness to light? It moves toward manifesting into a full moon and bringing new, hopefully good things with it!
Right now the moon is in Taurus. From a favored website, when the moon is in Taurus it’s a great time for love and the arts. Think big! Love is soooo much more than romantic love!
So…as I sit here, creative thoughts are swirling through my head. A shift coming on, new thoughts, new ideas, new actions and ways. Change. I’m not always great at change, but slowly I get better at letting them flow, and letting things shift as they’re meant to. It’s so easy to fear change, perhaps even of losing something, clinging onto it tightly…but if it’s meant, it will transition anyway whether you’re kicking and screaming or going with the flow. (I’ve done my share of kicking and screaming.) I was reminded yesterday, after looking at amazing pictures from two years ago, of one of my favorite Alice quotes: “It’s no use going back to yesterday, I was a different person then”. It was so amazing to see the pictures, to remember, feel nostalgic, but there was also a hint of sadness too, for what was. Those were amazing moments, as there have been since and will be in the future. Different and brilliant all on their own. Together, they form the tapestry of our life. If I feared changing the colors along the way or tried to hold onto that one specific thread in that one specific moment, how could a rich and full tapestry be woven? It can’t.
In SL, I’ve always been one to have multiple “spaces” – whether it’s on one parcel or several parcels. I’ve finally realized why I do this. Each space I create evokes it’s own emotion for me, and shifts frequently. As a totally mad Scorpio and INTJ, I feel deeply and am very sensitive to emotions around me. I realize I create what I need at that time. My home – a place of peace and belonging, kita gardens – focus of the mind and inner focus, and my shared building parcel – creativity and imagination. I feel the energy of each, just as I feel the energy of dance, of art sims, adventure sims, and more. This is one of the things that makes SL so very special to me. Experiencing this, and meeting different people along the way. Being open to it all.
I read an amazing quote today: “Until we dedicate time each day to developing ourselves into the person we need to be to create the life we want, success is always going to be a struggle to attain.”
This is from the book “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM)”. I understand success as my own definition. I have no desire to be a big CEO, to be famous, or to even be popular. To feel fulfilled, happy, continue on my path to living my life’s purpose. That’s success to me. I strive to read a “life inspiration” book and “spiritual inspiration” book each day, for just a short time each…though have been kinda lax lately (haven’t been dedicating that time!). A friend recommended this book, and is reading it at the same time. It makes a big difference in my life, to be surrounded by positivity and inspiration. This is where happiness flows from for me, and when I feel I create the best dances.
Today begins an amazing weekend of dance shows, of creativity, hopefully tea with a special friend, and new beginnings.
Weave your own tapestry and dance in your own light –
