My Life Starts When My Eyes Close ~

Do you ever feel like your life starts when your eyes close. I do. It’s when every single thing in my life is left up to my imagination. I can play dress up and live anything my mind is willing to create. I just let go of who I am and become what I chose.

I remember as far back as 7 years old, when I loved to go to bed just to enter into my imagination. It was a sense of freedom which was safe and full of adventure. I would create scenarios in my mind and see where I was willing to take them. I wasn’t trying to escape from somewhere I didn’t want to be, it was like playing dress up with endless possibilities! After a while its like an orchestrated dance, everything just flows naturally. Its like an alternate reality. Drifting off into your imagination before you slip into a deep sleep is one of my favourite things to do. And when done to the music of Enya it’s simply fantastic!

I am a dreamer, surrounded by fluff and clouds, it’s who I am. At times I wear rose coloured glasses and I like it that way. I dream vividly and love the feeling when I wake, having escaped into another world that I cannot control. When my eyes open, my imagination sits and waits for its turn to recreate where it left off. It follows me, seeping into my day to day without notice. My brief smile, far away stare or moment of peace is the only sign it leaves behind.

Our imaginations are being set aside and lost in our world of reality. For our imaginations to flourish we need to use them or we will forget how. Imagine that!

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish!

You may have already seen this speech but it’s worth seeing a second time.  This is one of those inspiring video’s that leaves you feeling lifted!  I think it’s fitting being that Graduation is in the air!  I will attend my son’s Grade 5 farewell today, knowing that in a blink of an eye, it will be my Son setting out in the world to chase down his dreams!  All I can hope for is that he Dream Big ! Dreams are meant to be touched.

Graduation to me was a new beginning, an adventure.  Your life was about to begin.  You had been training for this moment for 12 years and the day has finally come.  Freedom!  Responsibility!  A chance to prove that you have what it takes to make a difference in the World.

Congratulations to all of you who have completed a goal in life that will stay with you forever, Education!
