The Dream of Something Else


Life doesn't always play out as expected. Sometimes it's better, sometimes it's not.

No matter what though, life is what we make of it.

A very wise man told me, "No one is limited by anything. I don't know the laws of the universe, or what happened before or what's going to happen now, for anyone or anything. But I know that a woman as intense and passionate about what she wants and needs as you -- and who is maybe starting to realize she isn't getting that now -- deserves and is going to get that if the universe unfolds as it should".

Heady stuff, right?

There are so many decisions to be made in life. Some decisions seem to make themselves. They are so logical and come so easily; you know they are right. Others seem right when you make them, but as time passes you realize that they were the safe choice, but probably not the right choice. Sometimes the choice was the easy way out, then becomes anything but easy to live with.

I am in the midst of a dilema. I have a pretty good idea what needs to be done, but it remains to be seen whether or not I have the intestinal fortitude to carry it out.

I need your thoughts and prayers, friends. Now, more than ever.

wow. i just posted something about this tonight - about choice. about wellness.

about staying mindful.

you can do this. whatever it is, you can do it - because you are a strong and powerful woman. because you know in your heart what is true.

One time I went through all the bibles of all the world's major religions, and looked up all the time phrases like "Fear not!" and "Be not afraid!" showed up. There were dozens of them, in every book of every faith. That seems to be the one consistent message God has given the world.

Hang in there- you're a lot stronger than you think.

If you want it to happen you can make it happen! I hope it is less of a struggle than it sounds. At any rate I will keep you in my thoughts.

My dad always said, "make your plan, then work it". Life surely is about our personal choices, and the passion to honor them. Keep your chin up!

I love those photos of the moon. I wish I knew some deep proverb to pass on. I will say a prayer for you....I don't have much clout though(hehe)....but I will anyway

Dave said...

Place your intentions into spirit's care. Ask for help and guidence. Then keep your eyes, ears and heart open. The solutions are always there. We just have to search for them. Sometimes the answer just pops up other times we have stop look and listen. Someone or something will come into your life that will help you. Trust your intuition. Remember that there is no right or wrong. If what you do and or need is sought for with love in heart and then the universe will come through for you. It may not be want you want to hear but have the strength to look at the answer from all angles.
I send positive energy out to you and wish you well. When you find what you need then the rest of the world benefits too. We are all one and we want peace for you.

Carol said...

Ah, Laurie, I understand what it's like to be on the horns of a dilemna. I agree with Dave: trust your intuition. Then follow Bonita's dad's advice and work your plan. In the meantime go and read the Robert Frost poem The Road Less Travelled. I'll be thinking of you.

I ratify the wisdom already spoken. Don't feel pressured to act before you must. Do nothing if you can. There will be an answer... let it be.

Squirl said...

Intuition, the small still voice within, whatever you want to call it, that's where you'll find your answer. Pay attention to things that come up. Look for coincidences. You may find your answer in one of these.

You know straight up, Laurie. I have complete confidence that you will find your way through this. We're all pulling for our special Blog Buddy. It's touching that you've shared your challenge and you must be heartened by the support and caring.

Laurie said...

Jen, thank you, I appreciate the faith you have in me.

Thomas, I will remember those words.

Butterfly, Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.

Bonita, Funny you should say that, I was drawing up a timeline last night. :)

Littlepea, I appreciate your prayers more than words can say.

Dave, thank you for the wise words.

Carol, the poem really says it all. Great advice. Thank you.

Joe, I think the only one pressuring me is...me. Thanks for reminding me not to rush in.

Squirl, I used to pay better attention to the small still voice within. Lately, not so much. I think I had better start again. Thank you.

Cathy, thank you so much for believing in me. You are right, I'm touched beyond belief by all of the comments I've received.

Anvilcloud said...

Well, you've set the hook firmly and deeply.

Thailand Gal said...

I agree with Dave. Make your intentions clear and then wait for the answer. Be still. :)


Peace,

~Chani

KC said...

praying for you to find some peace in your dilemma. Do what's right for you.

Ur-spo said...

A very good rule of thumb when one is in a dilemma is this;
if you are damned if you do and damned if you don't, then you do what you feel is ulimately the right choice.

crazymumma said...

I have never been here before. I wish you well in solving your dilemma.

I am sometimes dismayed by many of the decisions I have made, and although I am not a passive liver (far from it), I do comfort myself with the thought that perhaps the universe had a reason for steering me in that direction.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Laurie, I pray that God provides you with the endurance to do what you decide must be done. Remember the words of Davy Crockett: “Be sure you right, and then go ahead.” Actually, I seldom have taken Davy’s advice: I have often just jumped in without looking.

Laurie said...

AC, but is the hook in me? Sometimes it feels like it is.

Chani, I am trying...

KC, I really appreciate your concern. It's nothing life threatening, just so you know.

Ur-spo, I am damned, no matter what I do. So I'll follow your good counsel. Thank you.

Mumma, that's very true. I've made quite a few wrong turns along the way, but still have the feeling I'm heading in the right direction overall. Thank you.

Nick, I'm like that too, but this time I'm going to try to take things a little slower. Thank you for your prayers.

Mary said...

Laurie, whatever is on your mind, I wish you peace.

Laurie said...

Thank you Mary. I appreciate it. In return, I wish you sleep. :)
