"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."~Walt Disney
I think it is fascinating how things turn and tip suddenly. I was feeling so serious and so single-minded about my 37 Day Challenge. I had a procedure and I had an outcome that I was expecting on a daily basis. That single-mindedness (closed mindedness?) limited me to a certain kind of thinking - that the qualities I respect in someone were only noble and difficult to attain.
THAT'S NOT TRUE.
When I got distracted (by a quote, a thought, someone laughing), I started to look around me and see other qualities I was overlooking in my serious endeavor. Laughter. Joy. Dreaming. Suddenly, those ideas are flowing in my direction - from the multiple exposures to Susan Boyle singing on "Britain's Got Talent" on The Metaphorical Magpie and 37Days to the appearance of quotes from Disney, a delivery of a stuffed Bernard from "Where the Wild Things Are".
Right now, I'm dreaming of going to NYC this June to see the interpreted performance of "The Lion King", a trip to the beach for a week, a good old-fashioned tear-jerker, a good book, a night out with friends. All attainable. All JOYOUS.
This is a good day. And I even owed taxes and didn't cry. That's a good day.
