Heat Seeking

Heat Seeking

It's a little dull, grey and chilly here.  So I am dreaming of summer and looking forward to a few days away in the South of France.  

A change of scene, a little recharge and a very welcome dose of vitamin D.

What are you seeking?

The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated.  And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough.  Nothing else really counts at all.

The Wish Jar

Once upon a time, there was a jar filled with the wishes and dreams of a girl searching for her next path.

The wish jar

Each wish was carefully written and placed in the jar, where it sat collecting dust for a year or two.

Inside the wish jar

The jar was forgotten.  But the girl was working quietly.  A little bit every day.  Slow progress.  But progress for sure.

Time passed.

Then one day she looked up and saw the jar on her window sill and wondered.......

Piles of wishes

....what she had even written.  And, even more curiously, had any of them come true?

Unravelled wishes

And as she unravelled each of the wishes, she realised just how far she had come.

Wishes that remain

All but two of the wishes had come true.  Not always in the way she had expected, but nevertheless, the dreams had been realised in one way or another.

The two that were left - one was no longer a wish.  One is still a dream.  A really big dream.

But if you can achieve this much with a little a day, surely a really big dream is reachable one day, no?

So here's to wishing and dreaming and celebrating the tiny steps that get you there in the end.

Happy Friday.

Dream a little dream for me, okay. :)
