i was reading a blog post the other day (sorry, can't remember where now) where mention was made about a book about choices and how we choose
just the kind of thing that always gets my attention;
i love wondering about who we are and why we do what we do
and in all of that i realized i have been making a bad choice of my own lately,
without truly understanding it was a choice
i've been choosing to be dull and dispirited
i thought i was explaining why i had neither been posting here, or visiting your blogs
and i think i really just sounded whiny
when i would really rather be bright and sparkly
and have shiny bits of brightness and light in my thoughts and in my smile that show i understand each day is a treasure
all these bright, sparkly bits, beads and baubles might be sitting on a background of delicate net, but they give a strength to the fabric that it wouldn't have otherwise
solid and substantial
and so as soon as i posted that perhaps "rest" might be a good word for august, i realized there was a word much better...
such a good word, in so many ways
i'm excited to explore it, play with it, embrace it and be it
you remember this one
and this one
and this is the beginning of "simple"
which is even too simple for me right now!
this month's work will be a wonderful journey into a world of glitter and delight
of bright and shiny
pretty and sparkly
for both me and my heart!
