“…dreamers often lie in bed awake, while they do dream things true.” ~ Neville Goddard
August 28th is a pretty special day for me, as it marks the day that Kirby passed 7 years ago. Boomer, my husband Ed and I will go down to Fish Creek Park tonight and leave flowers at the spot where we scattered some of his ashes. My heart was broken that day.
I have spent the past few years in a state of huge personal transformation and have realized that that experience was a large part of what I am intentionally creating today. A crossroads….finding and following my real joy. It shook me up. Led me on a path that woke me up. I am forever grateful to be pointed in the direction of joy. It hasn’t always been easy, as my mind sometimes tricks me and says that I am lost. But my heart knows the path and I am starting to see that it IS actually easy. When I just listen to my heart and follow my Bliss. I get that now. Follow your Bliss….it really is that simple.
It has been busy. We are moving and yesterday I did a final clean of our home and will be handing over the keys today. Another chapter closed. It was our first purchased house and we spent nine years there. It was Kirby’s first home that was *his* from the very beginning. No other doggie smells. All brand new….he was the first to lift his leg in the yard. I laid the sod in the rain after a 16 hour nursing night shift so that he could finally go out and explore his new space.
He died in my arms on the living room floor of that home. It is definitely hard to let go sometimes.
3 months after Kirby passed, we received the sweetest gift – Boomer. This house was also Boomer’s first home. I am sure he spent the first two years of his life feeling my guilt and sadness from the loss of Kirby. As I look at this sweet little boy, I know for certain he has been my healing agent. He is such a sweet, gentle and kind dog. I think we wore tracks all over the old neighbourhood together. So many walks….and memories. He is my always patient model; forever waiting for me to figure out my camera or flash settings, or always trying to hold the right pose. Love him – to bits.
So it was a *beaming me* looking at the photo of Boomer and I in the contributor section of the Modern Dog Magazine September Issue. More than just exposure and all that great stuff, this is confirmation for me….that following one’s heart IS bliss. That we can and do create our own reality by the thoughts we choose and the intentions we set. I am really excited and grateful to be a contributor for this magazine and am looking forward to upcoming features as well!
Seven years of Self discovery and following my heart. Always inspired in life by my sweet dogs and by my amazingly supportive husband. It has been an incredible ride. And based on my ever expanding vision board…there is so much more amazing stuff to come.
