“Come to the edge,” he said. They said, “We are afraid.” “Come to the edge,” he said. They said, “We are afraid.” They came. He pushed them … and they flew!
This quote is one that I found a long time ago, written by an anonymous author. I liked it so much that I painted it on a wall in one of our former homes. And now I have it prominently displayed in my workspace. Anytime I become afraid of something, I try to remember it, and another of my favorites is from A Course in Miracles … (paraphrased) “If you really knew who walked beside you, you would fear nothing.” How often we forget that. It took me three tries to get through the whole course, going back as far as 1994 the first time around. Truly amazing material.
Today’s photo is of my workspace. (You inspired me to do this, Nick). This is where I write my blog posts & miscellaneous other things like my Morning Pages and food journal, edit photos, correspond with my peeps, create my photo cards, etc. So now you have a window into my world, including my abundance vision board 🙂 Abundance doesn’t just come in the form of money.
And, as you can see on my monitor, the stately saguaro is one of the pics that rotates through my screen saver. To the far right, hanging almost out of the picture is my son’s Army dog tags. I’ve been promising to send them to him but have procrastinated. (I kind of like having them around). He was in the 10th Mountain Division and discharged right before the first Gulf War. Selfishly, as his mom, I was glad his time was up, but I’m very proud of him for his service. My heart goes out to all of the parents whose children are currently serving in harm’s way, and especially to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
(Note to self – go visit him in Texas – soon!) Namaste.
