2/17/12 – Wishes

Standard

“Wishing is good for us. Daydreams, fantasies, castles in the air, and aspirations all drive us forward, impel us to make things happen. They also tell us a lot about ourselves. Our wishes come straight from our core, and they are loaded with vital info.”

I have this weird attraction and love for dandelions. I just think they are so beautiful and complex yet full of a crazy hope for dreams and fantasies and wishes to come true. We blow on a little flower and put the energy of our biggest wishes into those little “petals” as they fly into the open air of opportunity and the unknown. How cool is that? It’s like making a wish at 11:11. We do it with only faith and hope to go on. And it feels so good to put your wishes out there. The little things that we yearn for inside that no one gets to see, except for this little weed.

To me that represent so many things: hope, faith, wishes, dreams, but, most of all, letting go. Letting things fly away and getting things off your chest. Doing this, like following our dreams, is what helps to make things happen. It’s the little start we need to help us move forward. That all being said always remember the following too:

“Always leave something to wish for; otherwise you will be miserable from your very happiness.” – Baltasar Gracian, Spanish Philosopher and Writer
