Contain the energy

I have a friend. I wonder how many posts I could start like that? Anyway.....her and I get together once a month (sometimes more) and discuss various topics and things that are going on in our lives. We talk about new books we've read and how we have grown spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Over time we've realized that we are quite a bit alike. Now the talks are just as good but now, more to the point! There is a lot less explaining to do and we've been on the same page for a while.She's been finishing my sentences lately.(it's a good thing) I went to see her today with the attitude that I was going to enjoy the day for what it was. I needed to get my head out of the clouds and start appreciating what I had right in front of me. My whole "I must move to the water.....and SOON!" was, (is) consuming me. I wasn't getting rid of the dream but I needed to have some balance. Well of course my friend was already way over that. She also has a goal; a dream, a future she hopes to accomplish sooner than later. She has started a book with pictures in it; thoughts, ideas, plans, etc. She says this is where she puts the energy when she's thinking about all that. When she's done with it, the energy stays there. She then tries to balance the rest of her life around that. She was in the same position I was. It was hard to concentrate on anything other than where she wanted to be ~ instead of where she was. This is why I love her. She either has been through it, or knows how to get me through it. So I'm going to give that a try. I have a beautiful book to write in that my husband gave me for our anniversary . I can't think of a better place to start.

 I'm also going to put in a little plug in for pinterest This is a great place for the visual. There are so many beautiful pictures of oceans and beaches, beautiful little cottages, bike riding people, flowers and gardens, coffee shops, long walking paths, and patios galore!!! This overwhelms me sometimes, and I must say that a visit is in store for me, at least once a week.

So this is where my energy for my desires will be focused for the next little while. Let's see how long it lasts before it starts to creep back into my everyday life.......After all.....~ If it's too far on the back'll never get done! And that will never do!

  1. I love your friend's way of focusing her energies - I used to keep journals like that years ago. I agree with you, Pinterest is amazing.


I truly appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
