IN MOTION

The most profound thoughts come to me while I am in motion. I may be cruising, cycling, jogging, walking, or hiking, it doesn’t matter! As long as I am moving the thoughts come! It’s as if all distraction is removed, burdens are lifted, and my focus redirected.

Maybe THE BEST things in life come to us while we are in motion! Nothing good EVER comes when we are sedentary. Like sedimentary rock we become compressed and crushed by the weight of our troubles and fears. The more we remain stationary, the more we are weighed down and the more hopeless we become. It is much more difficult to push ourselves up from beneath the rocks than to cast aside or avoid the few pebbles that cross our path while we are IN MOTION.

As we MOVE we have to have direction. Dreams become that direction. They are essential to anyone desiring to live a meaningful life. Being the Daydreamer I am, I have learned that Dreams on their own, get you NO WHERE!! They have to be backed by motivation and determination. Reaching them begins with a step…then another…then another; NEVER ceasing, FOREVER Moving!

Naturally, as I was cycling this afternoon, I had a profound thought! Presently,most people are spending their time scripting and striving after their New Years Resolutions. Why not make them Life Resolutions?! No time limit… Just vow to Move forward each day. Find your direction and make those choices that will lead you there…ONE BABY STEP at a TIme!!

I Imagine we will reach our dreams so much sooner than we expect!

HAPPY MOVING!!!! AND……SWEET DREAMS!!!

Daydreamer…That’s Me!

9 May

It was another Sunny 75 degree day and the only company I needed was my bicycle and nature. I rode until I saw a grassy knoll positioned under the shade of a beautiful tree over looking a creek. Like Nature Always does, it beckoned me to come and sit for a spell….

I could easily be one of those people who daydreams their life a way! I sat/laid there for over an hour letting my thoughts venture to the unknown, my past, my future, my dreams and aspirations, to the woman I long to be… In my dreams, I was running through fields of wildflowers, I was across the country and the world helping people, I was holding the hand of my husband and chasing after life together…

All of these things I desire. The reason daydreams are so sweet is because I can have, hypothetically, EVERYTHING I want in life….at THIS instant!

I have what most people refer to as “extreme patience,” except when it comes to waiting for the “life” things. I guess with our technology, we are so used to having instant gratification that we have become to expect it in ALL aspects of life. Life’s not instantly gratifying…it’s much slower than that…it’s more about the journey than the end result…

Good things come to those who wait,” I hear, but the impatient beast inside of me says, “You gotta grab life by the horns!” Arrrgggh! I’m looking for balance, I NEED balance! Perhaps waiting is better in some cases and “grabbing life by the horns” is best in others…

We can’t sit there and wait for a job to fall into our lap, We’ve got to hit the pavement and apply; We’ve got to seek out opportunities and do the work to make it happen and THEN wait to see where God takes it from there! And Waiting, as much as it kills me, is best when it comes to “finding” a spouse. It is best to go slow until both have worked their way into each other’s hearts. Since I desire to be pursued, I am choosing to wait. Oh, such a pity it is when one realizes they cause their own pain! ;D Go Ahead…Call me a masochist, but in this area, I will gladly suffer, because I know it will be worth it! I want my future husband to be sure about me before he asks me on a date…I want him to pursue further when he knows I am the one for him.

So I WILL Wait, and I WILL Run, and I WILL Pray to God in BOTH!

I could lay here for three more hours until the sun goes down, but my empty stomach makes a sound and I have 7 miles to ride until I’m home…So off I ride from my heavenly place… Yet, as I ride I still feel heaven with me..
