Compiled by Mercy Junction Administrative Assistant, Reiki Master, and Empath Kali Meister
“I don’t care who you are. When you sit down to write the first page of your screenplay, in your head, you’re also writing your Oscar acceptance speech.”
— Nora Ephron
I’m all about every aspects of dreaming. I believe dreams are powerful and necessary. I also try very hard to be an optimist while maintaining that I am a realist. It makes me feel like a human mini-wheat though—having one sweet side and one crunchy side.
So much happens to us in life that allows us to embrace the possible of the awful. It’s an entire “waiting for the other shoe to fall” mentality. I have fallen prey to it. It can be so simple to expect the worst. There is this idea that when you expect the worst that you are never disappointed. But, is that true? If we believe that aren’t we really embracing the worst in life instead of the best?
I write acceptances in my head and I know they will happen because I believe in the possible. I don’t think that is delusional. What does it mean to be delusional? It’s defined as having unrealistic ideas. Okay, so what is reality? It is perception based on experience. If you look at reality as malleable then maybe our delusions are more in liking with our sanity than our insanity. Maybe Seal was right; we need to get a little crazy. Honor your fantasies and expect the best without a sense of disappointment and see what happens. This is a step to being genuine to your soul.
Today’s Action: Wear a tiara grocery shopping if that makes you feel better. Make a part of your fantasy life a reality in your perception. If you want to be a kitten today then greet everyone with a big ol’ meow. Play. Cosplay. Attempting in some way to be who you always dreamed of being is the best way possible to honor your soul. YOLO.
