Following Bliss Down the Rabbit Hole

Ever have those scary moments when you feel like your life is caught up in a war zone? When chaos, uncertainty and destruction are all around you? Those times when you are about to leap into a different future, but your brain won't cooperate with your feet?
When all your 20 years of daydreaming about creating with fabrics and textiles and sharing it with others may indeed become your full time career? It was kinda fun when it was a daydream. But a reality???? Doubt, fear, worry and all that other crap creep in. Will I make it? Can I do it? Will I make any money to help support us and the fuzzy ones? Am I being selfish to want to follow my bliss for once in my life?
Then I stop and think about all of those that have made it. That truly for once in their lives followed their bliss only to discover they should have taken the leap earlier. That they put off their dreams and now realize that there is always a beautiful light that guides us through the rabbit hole if only we take a moment and let our eyes focus on it.
We must believe. We must stay focused that we can have peaceful and happy hearts as we follow the dreams. The dreams of our bliss down the rabbit hole.

blissfully dreaming,
this week IGF the light that guides me down the hole.

Shell this is a beautiful posting and so true, I think we have all been there and some even there now.
We only have one shot at this life so should take every opportunity to explore what is given to us and to follow our dreams.

Love to Razzie and little Sugar

Loved this post! You got right to the heart of matters that so many are wondering about. But, what I love most is your gorgeous artistic photos of your rabbits. You must do a children's book! I think you would be fabulous at it!!!

Shell, I know that you will be a huge success, because you have such an individual idea. However, I can certainly understand your having pause. Follow your bliss down that bunny hole! I bet you never look back! Hugs, Tedi
