Thursday Thoughts – Universal Dream

universeHow can it be Thursday? I’m not ready! If I got more sleep this week, maybe I would be. Yo, Universe? I need some words on insomnia and why it’s visiting me. A lot!

In the meantime, I’ll go with this because when I do sleep? The dreams have been doozies. I’d rather talk about “The” dream…or “A” dream because being human, we have more than one. Once upon a time, a lot of people told me my dream to be a “working” writer–one where I got paid to do what I love–was silly. “Get your head out of the clouds!” “Who are you talking to–there’s no one there…” “Quit your day job?!?”

Yeah, about that… Here I am. I never let go of the dream. It took me longer than I anticipated, and I really shouldn’t have quite my day job but I did. And here I am…

Silver, there are a million reasons why any dream might be considered irrational, unreasonable, and a silly waste of time.

On the other hand, I can think of one that blows ’em all out of the water… we’re in this together.

Silver, there’s no breath you take, or step you make, that we don’t share.

Yes, Universe…I’m breathing and stepping and I’m glad you’re with me. Don’t give up your dreams. Keep dreaming them! And now I’m going back to bed. Because I can do that. Just like I can write in my jammies, after stopping in the kitchen for coffee as I stumble from my bedroom to get to my office. It’s a dream that I work on every day to fulfill!

  1. I got a lot of that after I got married. “Where are you going to work?” To which I’d say, “I’m not. I’m going to write.” After which much scoffing came my way and some snide comments about ‘must be nice’. :shrug: Still, if it weren’t for my husband, this dream would be a lot harder. And if I didn’t have him, I’d have starved by now trying to make money of my writing.

    Keep after your dreams, Silver. You’re living it. I’m just dreaming right now. But before you kick my butt, I’m still working at making the dream a reality. ;o)

    Oh boy, I got a dream of writing a series. I’m working on blurbs for each book ahead of writing. This pre-planning is kind of fun so why did I dream last night of being attacked by an angry seal? Maybe because he wasn’t included? I signed up for Notes and I give you Thanks Silver for leading me there.

      LOL, Jan. Was it an angry seal or a SEAL? 😉 In my dreams, an angry SEAL means I’m ignoring the Hard Target series while I write some hot cowboys and another sexy Wolf before I get around to them. Oh…and maybe a bad-boy biker, too! 😉

      Have fun planning out your books! And you’re welcome. Enjoy the messages the Universe sends your way. 😀
