Hope. Wish. Dream. Be.


Spring is in the air! Hope. Wish. Dream. Be.

Plant a seed (a wish, a dream, a hope) this spring and nurture it with fertile soil (plant it with love and only invite supportive people to your garden) and water (kindness to yourself). Sunshine (the magic) will do the rest.  Make sure you bask in whatever is your magic daily. 

There is no limit to what you can do when you believe in yourself.  Now, as a good friend I adore says, “Trust” — I know it isn’t that easy with the voice of the inner critic loud in your head.  I have a horrible inner critic.  Some days I kick her scrawny little ass. Other days, well, she beats me up pretty good.  I listen to country music a lot — that is part of my magic.  The lyrics make me happy.  Then that inner critic doesn’t have the volume control — I do.  So I bust a move and jam out to country music and look at how my toddler smiles at me.  That is my one-two punch. 
* Weed that garden too if need be. 

Please comment here or post back here @memomuse on facebook in a couple days, weeks, months, and let us know how your garden is growing. Feel free to post a picture here.

I am planting a seed of creativity.  I am making it a priority in my life to pursue a career as a creative (writing, photography, education, creativity advocate).  I know in my heart it is what I am supposed to do. 

Thank you stopping by the memomuse cafe.  I hope you had some hope tea and wish soup.   Come on back now ya hear. 

I am going to leave you with some links to some YouTube videos of inspirational stuff.

“As we let our light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.”  Marianne Williamson

Turn that light on and let it reflect on and off of others. You are beautiful, brilliant, wonderful, and strong.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

If you are new here and want to get caught up to speed, see the last post, “Connection.”  I am actually waiting on hearing back if I won a photo contest I entered.  I am going to enjoy the day with my son and husband and not worry if I “won.”  It is in the act of creating where I feel my most enlightened and beautiful.  So I am not going to worry about that today.  Have a great day.

  1. I have Spring Break next week (and boy am I excited to take a breather), so my husband and I going to get our spring garden going. Sunflowers, beans, and peas are certain, but there are bound to be a few surprises. 🙂


    • CB,
      Enjoy your time. I don’t know how you find the time to write so consistently — you are certainly driven. I admire that. I was consumed with grading papers and all the work that goes with teaching that I was not able to devote as much time as I wanted to writing. But it did make me find the time and that is what drives a writer – that desire to write — to find the time to write no matter what. Keep creating CB. Hope. Wish, Dream. Be. Someday the students may be reading your book!
