Closer To My Dreams

This Friday, I’m in touch with deep feelings of gratitude and thanks. Seriously. I’m not just saying that ‘cuz I’m a coach and optimystical.

Gratitude for a 7 week old kitten. That just mysteriously “landed” in my universe Monday, October 11th. Mewing from under a car, where I crawled and maneuvered so I could catch him and pull him out of a wheel-well. So so scared. Heart beating fast. I remember hearing his cries for mom beginning around 4 am that morning and wondering “who’s kitty has been left outside?”

The power of love is so amazing. It’s impossible not to love on him and cuddle with him. Even when he’s scared out of his mind. And what’s been remarkable is watching him change, in these last 11 days. Right now, he’s playing with a toy mouse behind me. He’s still going slowly (which reminds me to do so also, which I like).

Gratitude for an amazing compliment I received. I’m still all glowy inside. It reminds me about how easy it is to tune-out compliments. If they don’t come on a “big” enough topic (according to me), it’s easy to dismiss them. This one, this compliment, kinda knocked me over. Which is a really nice and good thing. And it still makes me think about the skill of letting compliments in, and learning to give myself that kind of compliment. The blow-yourself-over kind. Deep self love here.

Gratitude for music. Because it’s Friday. And time for Music That Saved Me.

Big giant steps this week toward completion on a big project in my own biz. Feels really super satisfying. I’m looking forward to what is next. Which is an awesome place to be and be feeling about life, in general.

“Oooh, yay, what’s next?”

Knowing there is a next. Not being too attached to the thing I’m about to launch. Just really happy to be hopefully, expanding my biz life to a new level while serving you. My perfect You’s. For whom I’m also extremely grateful.

This song captured my attention when I heard “Some times you just have to let it go (Let it go, let it go)… Leaving all my fears to burn down.” Letting go has been a theme for the last few weeks (it’s seasonal, it’s also The Shed Project…) bringing focus to a topic that I think I can always become better at. Because ‘letting go’ does not usually come easy or natural. At least, not for me.

This song put me in touch with the idea of relaxing into letting go… trusting the freedom it brings, a freedom that elevates and expands me toward what’s next… Enjoy.

Closer to my dreams
It’s coming over me

I’m gettin’ higher
Closer to my dreams
I’m getting higher and higher
Feel it in my sleep

Some times it feels like I’ll never go pass here
Some times it feels like I’m stuck forever and ever

But, I’m going higher
Closer to my dreams
I’m goin’ higher and higher
I can almost reach

Some times you just have to let it go (Let it go, let it go)
Leaving all my fears to burn down
Push them all away so I can move on
Closer to my dreams
Feel it all over my being
Close your eyes and see what you believe

I’m happy as long as we’re apart
Then I’m moving on to my dreams

I’ll be moving higher (Moving higher)
Closer to my dreams
And higher and higher, higher
Feel it in my being (I can feel it flow around me)
I know that I could not go alone (No, no)

I’m moving higher (Higher), oh…
I’m going higher and higher and higher (Higher and
Closer to my dreams (Higher and higher, oh…oh…)
I’m moving upward and onward and beyond all I can see
(Stretching out my arms so I can reach)

Feels so close it’s like i can just reach
I can feel my dreams (Closer to my dreams)
I’m moving closer to my dreams
I’m moving (Higher and higher) higher and higher
(Higher and higher)
Moving higher, oh…

Some times it feels like you never gon’change (Never gon’change)
But you never choose to walk away
