Sink or Swim

“No wonder your heart feels it’s flying, your head feels it’s spinning, each happy endings a brand new beginning, let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through to ever ever after” This song, Ever Ever After from a movie titled “Enchanted” is stuck in my head. Even though I feel the saying “happily ever after” is silly, I love this part of the song.

I don’t want a fairy tale romance, a prince or a castle. I do want to feel enchanted by life and find the magic I believed in as a child. I miss those days when I believed anything was possible and that there really were magical beings, supernatural forces and adventure in every forest, dark attic or foreign land.

I want to feel alive. I crave adventure and a mission that will take me far away from all that I know and submerse me in a new story.

Someday will never come if I continue to play it safe though. Starting today and for the rest of the year my goal is to jump out of my safe zone and see what happens. I would rather sink in a wild ocean filled with my true passion than swim in a calm stream filled with doldrums of a boring life.

This is the Sound

This is the sound of waves crashing, sun shining, laughter, delightful squeals, my feet in the sand, the rush of catching a wave, the heat, the breeze, the cool drinks, my family, my friends, strangers all having a good time.

The memories of beaches past fill me with joy. Smiling and wishing this here and now could last forever. Knowing we will have to go home soon, but not worrying at all. I am in the moment and no dark memories, no pain, no sadness can creep in here. The only darkness here is the umbrellas shadow, the cool relieving shade that caresses my overheated body.

This is the sound of me happy.
