Believe It So… Make It So

Star Trek has always been my favorite science fiction series. I particularly liked when Jean Luc Picard would give the command of “Make it so”. .

Over the last couple of years I have become a fan of positive affirmations and meditation. I feel they have helped me grow into a happier and more positive person. I initially turned to guided meditations to help me sleep. (Thank you Jason Stephenson and his YouTube video’s for getting me back to sleeping regularly). YouTube gives you suggestions once you listen to something and that was how I became introduced to positive affirmations.

But enough of now my mind got me here… My thought for this first day of the New Year was to change up “Make it so” into “Believe it so”. Now I don’t think you can just believe something into existence – but I do have faith that if you Believe something AND Work toward that something … You will…Make it so.

Time To Be Creative

“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful: yourself.” –Alan Alda

I found this quote today, quite by accident (as most good things in life happen to me) on blog called From the Heart. I was looking for Zentangle® patterns and I found a lovely one she had drawn and posted on her blog. But the quote she had on the sidebar, just jumped up and slapped my face.

Go into the wilderness of your intuition… wow… I have struggled with letting go of the familiar and embracing change. It is a struggle I lose more often than not, but I KNOW I have to do this. Children move out, jobs change, relationships end and begin.

Sometimes you procrastinate and drag your feet, not listening to the voice inside you telling you to move on, or to pursue that crazy idea. Where those missed opportunities that I didn’t take because I was comfortable, and scared of change?

Risk taking is something I still have to work harder on. It is so much more difficult the older I get, but I will have to force myself to overcome this fear and listen to that inner voice…. Time to be creative!

I have discovered the art of doodling for relaxation. Just look up Zentangle® anyone can do it! It's almost as much fun as getting the "big" box of crayons!

Quirk or Superstition?

I believe that your superstitions are a type of quirky behavior. I just know, I can’t stop myself from making the three X’s on my windshield when a black cat runs across in front of my car while I’m driving. It is just a natural action, I hardly give it any thought. I wonder sometimes if any one else does this at all? Of if it was just a local superstition? Well, that happens to be one of my many quirky quirks! Daily PromptXXX Black Cat Bad Luck Prevention

Bohemian Wild Child

I am the quipster that refuses to write in complete sentences. Unique, quirky girl who is a wild Gypsy at heart. Rooms filled with colors and textures. Windchimes hanging over the bed. Lots of lace and flowing Gypsy skirts and shawls. Paisley is just perfect!

The 3 B’s, Beads, Bangles & Bracelets! Can a girl really wear too many bracelets? Lets not forget the ankle bracelets and rings on her fingers and bells on her toes! The More the Merrier!

Purple streaks in my hair!  I’m thinking in the future the grey hair will hold the purple color quite nicely! But there is that one item I can cannot live without, scarves! Throw them on the bed or on your head! Wrap up presents, sprained ankles or fashion them into curtains! Every decent or indecent bohemian woman has a good stash of scarves!

Thanks for taking the time to read through this wandering post – I really don’t write many text based blog posts. I tend to blog with images and color with short quips and quotes. So bear with this wild bohemian girl as I run wild and unchecked through the prose tonight! (regrets to my favorite English teacher and thank you to the Daily Post for the Daily Prompt)
