Some dream of fortunes, others dream of cookies...

There are times when I wonder why my mind goes in the directions that it does. Why I look at so many things and don't just see "a thing". Why I look at a rock and I believe it's more than a rock, or a tree isn't just another tree. Rocks, trees, streams and more can be some of the most beautiful things on this planet. I know I'm not alone here, I know that so many others out there understand what I'm saying. We live on a planet that can be... No, IS, such a magical place. Dwelling on those thoughts, I can only rationalize it down to one thing. Growing up with a father who was an artist, a photographer and a man who saw the planet for what it was. How he would point out a tree in a field, with the sun hitting its branches as if it were on fire. Sure, at the time I thought he was just a fruit loop but now I see myself pointing those same things out. The sun rolling over the mountains, the eagle soaring above, the colours reflecting off the river and so so so much more. I believe it's why I love being a photographer so much! Being able to capture those pieces of the planet with out harming a thing. Even being a wedding photographer, capturing the beauty in each soul and the pieces of the day. It's almost like living in a dream. A great big wonderful dream. A dream that can continue on each day, no matter what's lost, you still have so much beauty all around you. ALL FOR YOU...
Are there parts of your day that don't hold that beauty, parts of your future that you just don't believe will ever become reality? Are there pieces in your way that disturb your dreams? Disturbing your peace, disturbing your love for life? Can you fit those pieces into your puzzle some how? Or maybe they don't belong to your puzzle at all. So what do you do with them? Discard them.
Now if you could, stop for a moment. Think about what your dreams are. Do you know? Have you thought about those dreams lately? What are they? Write them down. Yes! That's it! Write them down. Take your top 5 dreams and write them down. Don't have 5, then round off the list with your priorities to life. The thigns that will make you happiest. The top 5 pieces of your puzzle that will create true riches in your life. Share them, don't hide them away. Dreams are good! Dreams are beautiful. Sharing them with the world just begins to make them that much more of a reality! So what do you say? Got 5???
