Friday, What I’m loving….

What rocks your world? Makes you swoon? Giggle? Cry? So full of love that your heart wants to burst?Do you know? Do you take the time to stop and let your world be rocked? Can you fill yourself up with happy?

Will you stop right now and make a short list of a few things that make you happy? Come on, give me the happy stuff! For me, some of those things that make my heart sing a little song are watching my dogs run in the park chasing squirrels,  and taking time for myself to read inspiring book and blogs, and cooking dinner while I sing loud some Dwight Youkum songs, and volunteering my time every week at the dog shelter. That is a few, and I make sure to do some of them every day. Only I can fill myself up and make me happy, I can’t depend on that from anyone else. Plus then I can pass on that good feeling with a smile…

Now of course, being Friday, I have a few gatherings of words  and folks to share with you! Don’t you love finding a new book to read, or  a quote to make you think, or a song to make you smile? Enjoy….

what i know to be true

And I just read this from my past dancing soul mate, Thorn….

The generation and well-being of the cosmos rests inside you – but not only you. Tend your thread. Weave it in.

What do you contribute to the world, even on days when you feel worn down, fearful, or angry? What is the thread that spins from your heart and hands? Honor that. Honor its color and texture. Honor the fact that without that thread – your thread – the world would be a different place than it is today.

give yourself over to the night…

and lastly, for the weekend… here are some lovely lyrics to send you off for a happy weekend…

I Hope You Dance
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, where those years have gone?)
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, where those years have gone?)
