We are carried along in a stream -
some are aware of the invisible forces pulling them,
some float without a thought as to where the current is taking them.
Some days I'm in that current,
not thinking about the future or plans -
just working away in the jumble of the day to day.
And then sometimes flotsam gets thrown into the mix
and suddenly the waters are stirred in unexpected ways.
And there is a moment when you realize you can swim against the current.
You can create a sail.
There are no limits as to where you can travel.
Cast off the nets that bind - the old thoughts, habits and patterns.
Swim upstream, make a break for it.
Change your life and stop letting the current carry you away from your dreams.
This is a note to myself as my family faces momentous changes that have knocked me out of that complacent stream and I find myself facing the waves and breakers that are crashing over me.
So thankful for the bright stars in my life that help point the way.
