In My Mind's Eye


Quote of the day:
Practice sharing the fullness of your being, your best self, your enthusiasm, your vitality, your spirit, your trust, your openness, above all, your presence. Share it with yourself, with your family, with the world. -Jon Kabat-Zinn


I want to visit a new place, where the weather is perfect, not too cold or hot. I want to sit staring at the ocean. To listen to the waves as they whisper, to dig my toes into the fine sand...feel the texture of its beauty between my fingers. I want to go back to the basics. 

To being inquisitive, a little naive, and innocent without a care in the world. To worry less, and become excited about the little things. I want to be great at one thing, and one thing only -but still have room for growth. I want to make my intentions known, to unlock hidden treasure within, to break loose, and attempt lift off, like a bird learning to fly for the first time.

I want to understand other views that are different from mine, to switch sides mentally, to evolve, to be tolerant, to be an example. I want to have great conversations with strangers who I may never meet again, to spread love and laughter, and at the end of the day, I want to be able to tell myself...well done, tomorrow is another day.



Peace.Love.Light.

  12. I've always wanted to live in a place that's not too hot and not too cold. :)

  13. Tried to leave a comment, about how I miss the ocean.

    But it would not publish. It kept trying and trying and trying. I finally left.

    So, I will try again.

    Wondering if I am the only one, who has this trouble, with leaving comments...?

  16. This is going on holiday for me and what makes it memorable. Great post.

  17. Beautiful and holds many of my thoughts. I have heard of a dream place that is not hot during the summer but it does become pretty cold in the winter. My dad used to go fishing there. Whwn he came back home to Illinois, he would brag about how beautiful it was. It is on the border of Minnesota and Canada and off Lake Superior...Grand Marais...I believe this is how it is spelled :)

    Thank you for a lovely post and reminding me of another lovely memory from my past~

  26. I love the quote and your "I want" list. Many of us would like to go back to a time like childhood when things were easier. But the world keeps spinning and the only direction is forward.

I have always wanted to sit by the sea side with Ijagz.. Having No one else around.. as letting nothing else matter in those few minutes.. But Me and her.. Taking off her glasses and Staring into her Brown eyes just to tell Ijagila's how much my world revolves around her... heheh Fools Love i guess... And you know what teh Onyibo man says... "If Wishes were horses... Everyone would ride"...

    This was a very ghen ghen read.. And I particularly loved the closing line that went...

    "I want to be great at one thing, and one thing only -but still have room for growth."
