“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper
“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” ― Paulo Coelho, Brida
We are unique. We are each one of us much like every snowflake, every fingerprint, no one of us is alike. Each of us knows our faults, our lacks, yet we try so hard to mask these issues when we present ourselves to the world. Last night I had these dream. In the middle of a big college campus, there was a woman taking a shower. I stood outside the door of the shower stall. She was talking about her aloneness, wanting to fit in, to have a partner, a husband, a lover, someone who understood her.. I had to walk away apparently because suddenly she was ready to get out, she had no towel. Several people came up but she couldn’t get out as she would be exposed, everyone would see her. As I came back up with the towel, she could come out. When I woke, I realized this dream telling me, that so often we are so afraid of others finding out we are not as strong, as wonderful as we hope other think, that we hide so much of ourselves, we are left alone. The vicious cycle, where people can feel our own lack of believing in ourselves, our dreams, that of course, we have pushed our dream away. None of us truly “fit in”, “ stay in the box”, no matter how hard we try, there are times when we are tested, pushed beyond our limit, our comfort zone, to where we can grow, we can stretch our arms up to the heavens, to try to reach the gods, the angels, the Sun, Father Sol, to become who we really are, still have our respect, our dreams, our path.
Animal totems: Nautilus – Sister Nautilus the symbol of beauty, proportional perfection, the appearances of what she presents to others is her totem. Her medicine is that Sister Nautilus does look at all sides of the issues, of herself, to be able to blend into her environment, to “fit in” to her crowd. She reminds us to still be our beautiful selves, still making others comfortable around her.
I am off this am to take my mom to her worship service. I have noticed that keen has changed their search for advisers making it harder to find favorites. Make sure that favorite advisors are added to the My Favorites on pages. Or we can google www.keen.com/deborahmills to find us. ( if it is another advisor, put their keen member name where my name is behind the slash) . We are sorry, this is a test to make the search easier, but we are finding it a bit difficult. Write me, let me know how we can help! May the fairies dance around each of us today. Love ya, Me, Cherokee, Cidro, Frankiecapone, Sugar fortune Cookie, T and the sweet spirit of Bob and Bets.
Moonzies Preferred friends: Why use Moonzies? 1. My cost per minute is cheaper than keen. 2. As I stay busy, we are going to be able to keep our balance on money spent because we time it carefully. Sometimes we can talk all day about our issues, so we just keep adding, then later realize we have overspent our gas money. It is important to talk to our spiritual advisor but good stewards watch the finances as well. 3. if we get cut off, we can call right back without waiting in the long lines, we always connect.
