|Ah \- to be 15 years old!|
|Me hiking at Spirit Sands|
I have spent the last month either preparing for the move out of our current home or planning the set up of our soon to be new home. I have learned to make decisions, stay the path, embrace the easy and breathe through the challenging. I have also learned to lean on those who offer a hand or a shoulder - depending on the day! Today, in the midst of the proverbial angst, I sit and visualize the view from my new home, imagine the fragrance of the roses blooming by the patio and can almost taste the tingle of the local Chardonnay and I just know, in that one mental picture, that I am home.
In my continual, lifelong search for peace, balance and tranquility, I have not always succeeded but in the attempt to avoid the unavoidable I have sold out dreams and sidestepped amazing opportunities. I recently posted a picture - one of those proverbial Face Book sayings that really resonated within me:
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Anais Nin.
I am BLOOMING!
