Thursday Thoughts – Universal Dream

Y’all may or may not know but when I save an email from the Universe, I set it up as blog post. Sometimes, the message is pertinent right then and there (ie. for the next Thursday Thoughts post). Sometimes, I like the message but it’s not exactly apropos to current life events, thoughts, or musings. I go through them until one pops out at me and says “MUSE ME!” Out of curiosity, I went to the very last page of drafts to see what was the oldest message. This is it, from 2016.

Never compromise a dream, Silver.

Do what you must. The fears, beasts, and mountains before you are part of the plan; stepping-stones to a promised land; to a time and place that is so much closer than even you suspect.

Don’t let your eyes deceive, Silver, for even as you read these words, your ship swiftly approaches.

The Universe

And, Silver, there’s not a dry eye on board. They are so proud.

Way back when, this was relevant. And it still is. Dreams and aspirations are important. They get us out of bed in the morning. They keep us moving foreward even when we are tired and discouraged and ready to throw in the towel*. I’m still at the computer. I still have stories to tell. I’ve slowed down since 2016. Age. Covid. Other health stuffs. But I’m still here kicking and doing what I can to keep the dream alive and hoping my ship comes in soon. What are you dreaming about these days?

*Who knows where that phrase came from? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Boxing. When a manager wanted to end a boxing match before there was a knockout, he’d grab “sweat” towel and throw it into the ring to stop the fight. Just in case inquiring minds wanted to know.

  1. I’ve missed your Thursday Thoughts. I’ve miss you. :hugs: I’m not sure I’m ready for today’s thoughts and I’m not going to go down that rabbit hole of thinking about my dreams. I had a pretty good day today and that’s all that matters right now. That and friends like you. :hugs:
