Prompt: Everything’s OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead? (The Dead Crew @sweetsalty)
2010 was the year that I began to rely on resonance. Lately, I have had some vivid dreams, although when I say “vivid,” what I mean is simply “not my normal dreams which tend to be me just doing the same stuff I do while I’m awake.” I’ve had a few dreams in which everything was chaotic and stressful, but the resolution at the end is very peaceful and reassuring. When I’ve awoken from those dreams, the sun has been out, which is always a pleasant surprise west of the Cascades during the winter. I think those peaceful moments, even if they’re literally dreamed, have been indicators that things will be okay, no matter what.
As one of my friends always tells me, “Tough times never last, but tough people do.”
In 2011, I will be more deliberate in telling myself that things work out– and making sure I don’t sit on my haunches and sabotage the progress and learning. Things do work out– but they don’t work out if I don’t participate in one way or another.
