On a lazy Saturday morning when you’re lying in bed, drifting in and out of sleep, there is a space where fantasy and reality become one. Are you awake, or are you dreaming? You see people and things; some are familiar; some are strange. You talk, you feel, but you move without walking; you fly without wings. Your mind and your body exist, but on separate planes. Time stands still. For me, this is the feeling I have when ideas come. ~ Lynn Johnston

This is the time of year when a sense of renewal takes aim at our hearts and lives. The key to this sense of renewal is the gift of shedding…old ideas, old thoughts that bind us, old reservations, and the symbolic casting off of dead skin.

“…for human beings, dead skin takes many forms, the most significant of which remain intangible but suffocating, such as a dead way of thinking, a dead way of seeing, a dead way of relating, a dead way of believing, or a dead way of experiencing.” ~Mark Nepo

What I ultimately wish for myself, and for all those who read this, is an openness to self-transformation, a renewal of will, a greater sense of seeing the world not as a broken or torn place, but a most exquisite world that is ever fresh and open and full of beauty, freedom and enlightenment.

We are meant to be different…

Part of self acceptance is releasing other people’s opinions.  Often what we think of as things “wrong” with us are only our expressions of our own individuality.  We are meant to be different.  When we can accept this, then there is no competition and no comparison.  To try to be like another is to shrivel our soul.  We have come to this planet to express who we are.  –  Louise L. Hay
