Moments … sparkling stars in our hands – that melt like a snowflake.


I believe we all have things …we would like to begin doing…now…but don’t…Things that we believe would add to our lives…however…we never take the time to do them…or make the changes to be able to do them…Can it be that life is easier if…we just keep doing what we are used to doing…and ..never begin doing what we really want to do???

A few months ago…I got thinking about just that ….what  is it that I want to do…I got thinking about sparkling moments…my sparkling moments….and….have I had any lately???…I began wondering ….Am I doing what I really want to do….NOW?????….Like many of you….I have been doing what I have to do…doing what others what me to do…what I need to do…for so long….I was forgetting to pay  attention to ….what is it that I want to do???

I suppose …there can be things we want to do… but we are just are not ready to embrace them… not ready to try  something new …even though we really want to… maybe we are afraid to do …that something  we really want to do???…Maybe there are things we want to do now…but don’t know how to get there…don’t know how to take the step.

I finally did it…I embraced something new…I have begun doing something I WANT TO DO….NOW!!!….I have added a sparkling moment to my life….What is it you might be wondering???….Well…For me ….it is …The Eiderdown….my  new red and yellow and orange …40 pound kayak….yes…I went and bought  a kayak this week….It has turned out to be …exactly what “I want to do now“….I will admit…It was a bit intimidating at first thought…and it meant separating me from some of my money….however…I have been feeling the need for something new….for something that was all mine…for something challenging I could do all on my own…independently….whenever I wanted …or needed to…Who would have thought.???…A kayak…yes a kayak of all things.

It is pretty difficult to describe the feeling of moving through the water…the feeling of complete control of your body and the water surrounding you…alone in the quiet of nature…The being able  to get the kayak into and out of the truck…and …down to the water…with absolutely no assistance…to tie it down securely for travel…with only minor bumps and bruises…is exhilarating…It is an accomplishment…one that I was determined to do…but one that I even surprised myself in being able to…

Had a good friend not mentioned kayaks to me. some months ago..I am not sure I would have ever found this special something…I want to do NOW!!…My first time sitting in and paddling my kayak…I truly can tell you….was a sparkling moment in my life…Melt like a snowflake???…Not for some time I am certain.

How about you…what is it that you want to do NOW???…Don’t let those sparkling stars…melt away!!!
