Sometimes when you’re out of thoughts you get inspiration from unexpected places. I have been floundering about trying to think of a good topic for my next post. I was visiting Kate is Rising at http://kate1975.wordpress.com/ and came upon Healing Quotes Teens 242.
“Give yourself up to the moment. Dare to see it. Now look down at your feet; slip out of those invisible tethers. Then ask: Where would you take yourself right this moment if you walked toward your most heartfelt dream? What would your life look like? What would your body look and feel like? What level of energy would you have? What might be your favorite activity? What would your daily life include? Imagine happiness — the sweet glow of inner contentment, the way it tastes and smells and feels” — Chris Downie
I found my inspiration in this quote. Many of you know I have COPD, for those of you that don’t, it is a terminal disease, and it takes its sweet friggin but not joyful time. There is no cure, and all you really can ask for is endurance, a sense of humor and a strong will. I believe I have these attributes. But I also dream, many of my dreams center around a cure being discovered that gives you back your lungs, and cure happens during my lifetime, and the cure isn’t worse than the disease. Then I live to a ripe old age and die in my sleep or ______ (you fill in the blank).
When I read this quote it really was an extension of my dream, it made me stretch my thoughts and fill in many blanks my dream always leaves behind. So in keeping with the quote, I am going to try to use this forum to fill in those blanks, to make my dream more complete.
