This card resonates strongly with me today!! I am so happy to say that not only have I adopted a new dog from one of the local rescue organizations, but the whole reason I did was to force me back OUTSIDE!!!! I just came back from a big walk around the lake, admiring the reflection of the trees and their changing leaves on the surface of the water. Looking up into the sky through the maple leaves, some green, some yellow and some falling down orange and red. At one point I stopped to admire the view across the lake and when I looked down at my little black and white cutie I realized that we were surrounded by perfectly heart shaped leaves of all colours!
It’s so easy to get caught up in what needs to be accomplished in a day… Inside!! For me, as I work from home, scheduling time outside only really happens on the weekend or maybe after school, but not so much during the day. This morning I got to see the sun rise, outside in my pj’s while I let the dog out. Instead of feeling sorry for myself that I had to get up so early I thanked the Angels for getting my butt out of bed in time to witness such an amazing site, as the sun turned the sky red, pink, orange and gold. I should…. make that WILL get up earlier from now on!! What an amazing way to start the day!
I’m not sure I will feel the same in the pouring rain, but why shouldn’t I? Why not embrace it all? There should be no boundaries on happiness, but yet we do it all the time! When I _______________________, then I will be truly happy. If __________________________ happens, then my life will really turn around. My message from the Universe today?
“If you go first and reach for the fruit; I’ll shake the tree.
Do a little dance; I’ll add some music.
Move in the direction of your dreams, even though at first nothing seems to happen; I’ll align the stars, butter your bread, connect the dots, trim the hedge, move some mountains, float the boat, and see you at the ball.
Metaphorically. Except for seeing you at the ball.
If you go first,
Get outside, connect with the Divine by connecting to this beautiful planet of ours. Breathe, connect and receive the Divine into your life.
