Putting The Pieces Together

It’s that time again…the time of the full moon. A time for reflecting, dreaming, planning, creating…conjuring. This month’s moon is a great one to focus on making your dreams come true.  As I do most months, I have done a collage and will share it below. I’ve been struggling lately with the concept of having time to fully pursue my dreams and have a relationship. It takes a lot of energy to do the work that I am doing, and no, that isn’t a complaint. I love every minute of it. It’s just that I have been putting myself out there in the dating world a little and find it difficult to balance things. Especially as I have limited amounts of energy to expend.

So, for this full moon I did a reading for myself and simply asked if I should strictly devote myself to my work. Well…the reading got to the secret heart of my question…which was if I would be able to include romance into my life and still live my dream. Yes, it appears that I can have both. I just need to trust…let go of my worries…and surrender to the fact that I just need to be, without so many expectations. And of the six cards that I drew, two of them were about love of the romantic variety. How about that?

One of the most difficult things for many of us to do it to let go of our expectations…really to get out of our own way…and simply be. If the right person comes along, I’ll know it…because they will fit into my life and vice versa. Yes, that is simplifying but really it is true…the perfect partner for any of us is one with whom we are not only just ourselves, but our best selves. For me, it means finding that someone with whom there is mutual understanding and support. On my end it is my need to create…my need for that space…respect for who I am and what I do. It isn’t that I do not have time for a relationship…it is that I only have time for the right one. The quote about finding people who are your kind of crazy sums it up nicely for me.

What dreams are you focusing on?

And now for this month’s full moon collage:

  1. Great collage! My dream is, as always, to get my damn debt paid down. It’s been a very slow and frustrating process but I’m finally starting to see some headway. Still have a long way to go but I met the goal for 2014 anyway.

  2. Great collage! I LOVE collaging 🙂
    Well I think romance lends itself to art so by going out there and engaging with people will bring about something else in your creativity. I can’t WAIT for the poems when you meet your second heart and the inspiration that will hit your already beautiful art!

    • Thanks Jules! Me too. You are right about that. Romance whether the kind that has our hearts racing or the kind that leaves us lying in a heap does get the creative juices flowing. Thank you so much for the kind words! ❤

    • Hi Susan, It’s nice to see you too! You’re so right, they often do set us up for failure. I learned that when it comes to the grand scheme of things a long time ago. Just hadn’t let it sink in when it comes to dating. I’m getting it now. I know what I want, but I’m focusing on how I want to feel rather than exactly how it might manifest itself. Hope that makes sense.
