There is real joy to
be found when life takes you on interesting paths and you suddenly realise you
are now doing that very thing you dreamed about.
When you think back
to those first ideas many moons ago, you had no way of knowing how to get there,
so you either gave up or worked hard to make it happen. As most of you
know...we don’t work hard!
something doesn’t always seem healthy, it can become an obsession and will
eventually separate you from the now...from connecting with life in the present
We prefer a much more
pleasant journey, exploring the little winding lanes which lead us in different
directions and make life more interesting...the destination is set in our minds
and we know that we’ll get there eventually!
This is how we live
and travel - we always end up having little adventures on the way...it’s what
life should be all about.
Our dreams take shape
from ideas and then long discussions (we can easily talk for hours and hours).
We both get very enthusiastic once we start creating - it probably helps that
we have a natural ability to conjure up images, painting virtual pictures and
describing scenes with great detail to each other...most of it is just
ridiculously bizarre, but sometimes we capture a tiny nugget that erupts like a
volcanic explosion and we excitedly jet off together in this direction.
We fill our wish
board (usually a door or wall) with images of whatever it is we desire and hold
the vision in our minds...I like to think of it like a created memory placed
inside a beautiful ornate box, which I hold deep in my heart. We don’t concern
ourselves with the how’s, when’s and where’s, but instead continue to enjoy
what each day holds and feel confident in the knowledge that our desires will
present themselves when the time is right.
Nana Stip-Pep (Sime’s
Stepmum) has always said that if we were any more laid-back, we’d be lying
down...maybe that’s true, but this disposition thankfully enables us to focus
on what we want, rather than what we don’t want. We have no need to dwell on
things beyond our control; instead we go with the flow and continue to do
whatever feels right. We tweak and adapt, trundling along in our parallel
universe, travelling upstream to our little remote island of desire...and yes, our
current wish board does have a photo of a wooden cabin on it’s own tiny island!!!
This doesn’t mean we
ignorantly go through life thinking only of ourselves, in fact it’s quite the
opposite...we deeply care about the world around us and all who reside here. We
just wished that everyone had the foresight to recognise exactly what they are
capable of doing and instead of struggling through life, could join us on this
remarkable and exciting journey.
If you are indeed
looking for some inspiration – we hope our blog will encourage your own path of
discovery and empowerment.
