When You Believe


Today my stomach has butterflies as I allow my mind to wander to the dream that I am creating into reality. Each day something else seems to line up with my intentions. What a wonderful feeling. So, here’s a song that keeps running through my head (When You Believe by Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston). Enjoy and be blessed!

On the Brink of Change – original poem


ON THE BRINK OF CHANGE

Standing here, on the brink of change I dangle my toes over.

Spurred by the sticky sensation of old habits dripping down my back

The lure of a better way, a better day tickles my hesitant feet.

I glance back at the days of the past unsatisfied by what was.

That is enough.

That is what finally tempts me to take the first step.

And change begins just like that.

Not with a big bang, but with a single step.

I am in the midst.

I move forward aware of the long path ahead.

With each step, I notice “what was” is throwing stones to get attention.

The comfort zone of discontentment cannot lure me back.

It is becoming a diminishing speck.

I grasp the hand of new habits, new thoughts, and new action.

Change has become my new friend welcoming me into new sensations and realizations.

This is my creation, full of the sparkle of mystery and opportunity.

I am new knowing it doesn’t have to be the way it was,

Now that I’ve left the brink of change.

Poised to Move – original poem


POISED TO MOVE

Standing in the midst of change I look, in wonder, for a clue.

Seeking a sense of what is to come and where the spark will lead.

There is electricity of excitement as closure soon approaches.

All threads coming to a final knot in my current circumstance.

And yet, there is no mourning, no bitter regret.

There are only memories – sweet and enlightening.

I have done what I could and that is enough.

I have worked, learned, inspired and changed.

I am better than before and complete in this space.

I turn my head toward a new possibility, unseen and yet so sweet.

I speak and options begin to appear.

I reach across the unknown to find familiar hands to guide me.

I am safe.

And so I move into tomorrow with confidence.

And this too, brings me peace.

I am poised to move.
