a message to the Universe

(this morning)
 Lately I've been feeling out of sorts and...full of regrets and jealousies. reading other blogs and magazines and...I have been wishing that I am other than where I am. Why do we do that to ourselves?? The truth is...I had been wishing that I had perfect little vignettes in my home that I see on other blogs (I don't!!). I wish that my art was on the cover of a magazine (it isn't!). I wish I had an exhibition right now ...solo or group:). I wish I could sew all these fab Amy Butler patterns. On and on. And then...because I'm kinda' kooky this way...I start to go all the way back to...I wish I had taken some art classes in University, a photography class...something!! Even though my higher self + deeper wisdom knows better. So...dear Universe:
(a message this morning from Re-Connect with Wilo + Mati Rose)
I am going to meet mySELF where I am. I am going to honor every single step and piece of my journey without judgement. I am going to throw away my ungratefulness. have equanimity. know deep in my heart + soul that everything has value. continue to show up through the difficult. through the painful. through the inadequacies. practice kindness. especially on myself. and my loved ones. and perfect strangers. realise that there is no wrong turn. there is no winning + losing. there is only the journey. my journey.

Dear Universe: I surrender to the moment. I accept what is. I am opening to grace.

Soraya my first time commenting here (I've been lurking for a bit, I'm at a phase where I feel I need to "know" where the blogger is coming from before I start to "follow")

Your post made me laugh out loud because I've been reading your blog & secretly crushing on you, your art, your grasp on your feelings and how open and articulate you are in your posts and wishing I could muster the courage to say all that I wish I could---so, it's just a matter of perspective isn't it? The grass being greener etc. Why DO we do this to ourselves?

Anyway, just wanted to tell you what an inspiration your blog is-- screw perfect vignettes, just be yourself.

Thank you for posting these brave thoughts, Soraya. I know I can totally relate and I have a sneaking feeling that others can too... With all the social media "in our face" all the time I think it becomes VERY difficult not to get distracted from our path. Hang in there, keep moving forward - I need to do the same! Love to you guys!!

I think we all have these times. Think about women in the past who spent hours/days work on a garden or the quilts I have from my Grandmothers...they did this because their hearts told them to make a little beauty in their world. We still all do that no matter if we are rich or famous or published or whatever. We are just making our world a better more beautiful place for us.

My wish if I found the magic lantern.... to have as many wishes as I wanted! :) We do wish away half our life don't we - but I think we are where we are suppose to be in this moment. I agree with GB - screw perfect vignettes ~ what you can't see outside that little vignette might just be one big MESS! Good to send our thoughts out to the Universe, however to realize we aren't alone.
