trail blazin’ in the dark…

December 27, 2012

dark all around

“That’s just not the way the world works Pache…” he said.

“I KNOW…I know that, I don’t care! …but I am part of creating a new world. ” I said.

It was heated, he was playing devil’ s advocate.  He was just trying to protect me.

…but there is no protection from this dream.

He can’t protect me from this. It scares me a little… and I am overwhelmed.

In that moment, I felt a little crazy and a bit defeated…and doubtful.

…but not enough to stop me.

because sometimes to just have to believe in something that seems completely impossible to everyone around you,

hold tight to a hope that the world can be a certain way (or already is),

trust that we can love in the deepest dark,

know that we can change or find something in ourselves that was always there but we just didn’t know how to let it out,

stand crazy bold in that one thing can change everything,

because nothing changes until someone believes it can.

…so today I am trail blazin’ in the dark. …and I am keenly aware of all the work ahead… and I know on a new level the costs of a dream and the strength required…the risk of creativity and hope…

…and I feel the weight and complication of the world and yet the simplicity and power of kindness.

in the end, the truth always rises… the call is too loud to ignore.

the light

…and I am holding tight to this book today. Thanks Blullers!

    Go for it, Patience! I always figure however far I get, it is more than if I hadn’t even started fulfilling a dream. You will soar for sure!

    When what you are trying to achieve seems crazy to everyone else – you know it’s worth it. Nothing in life worth accomplishing was easy.

    It’s not as dark as you think, Patience. Hopefully, all of our well wishes for you will provide some of the light that will help you on your journey. We believe in you as much as YOU believe in you!

  4. The light from your sparkler is shaped like an angel.
    So, so magical (and amazingly appropriate) in your beautiful & kind hands.
    I believe in the change. I believe in you.
