Sleep and dreams are really weird, when you really think about them. Lying down. Closing your eyes. Trusting–or maybe it’s just routine, since you’ve done it inherently since birth. For a nice stretch of time you’re not conscious of…anything happening (or not happening) directly around you. Dreams take you some place else. Unless, you sleep with your eyes opened! Then, sometimes, your dreams take place right there. In the same room with your sleeping self.
Life without Twitter and Facebook (and Instagram) has, so far, been very peaceful & nice. And, contrary to my wild imaginings, the Blog didn’t collapse & die on the day.
Trader Jacques’ Fleur De Sel Caramels.
So good! Not too salty. Not too sweet. Perfect caramel flavor. Soft, sticky chew. Thanks Crisa for recommending! I like to stick a piece (or three) in the freezer before devouring. They firm up a bit & come out of the wrapper easier.
I feel like I’ve been moving way too fast these days to fully grasp what is happening–what has happened. In terms of personal growth & perception. Goals & accomplishment. Being who you are. Confidence! I rarely blog about these things anymore, even though they were/are the roots of MerelyMarie.
That’s because, there has been a shift! Some enlightenment and peace.
I’m still learning & growing but, I feel like I’m finally “over the mountain top” of those things that used to really bother me in my twenties and teenage years.
I’ve been streamlining and purposefully slowing down to reflect because, I feel it’s important. I want to understand the change, and acknowledge it before the feeling is gone. You never know who you’re helping by…just sharing your experiences. So, if you’re interested in that, stay tuned!
I’ve recently treated myself to some “cool finds”. Mostly pretty underpinnings and shoes. I’m on the hunt for a comfortable, sexy pair of dress pumps. That’s right! No “tappers“. These will have real heel. I’m excited but, I wonder how it will be to walk in them. It’s been so long! I think they’d be the perfect way to celebrate climbing that big ‘ole “mountain”.
So…how’s everything with you? How’s life?
