Magic Always Comes With A Price

Once upon a time a little, seemingly average, girl dreamed of being a princess. Immediately one would think, “That’s pretty normal. Lots of little girls dream of being princesses.” Heck, Disney made sure of that too. Around 6 years of age, she donned her mother’s gorgeous cerulean blue satin dress and the jeweled golden crown she’d fashioned herself. It was Halloween and one of the last times she’d be allowed to be a princess for many years to come. Externally, that is, because she was…..Abby Normal. Something in her deepest memories always glowed, albeit at times faintly, a knowing of magic – all kinds of magic! One of her NOW choices is to live that magic as much as possible here on Planet Earth.
But more about that later.

There is a positive reason, or magic if you will, swirling around every
happening. When I was in Florida, a few months back, I could have easily stayed months longer. I had a beautiful, comfortable place to stay. I loved the balmy weather, tropical plants and critters all around. Yet something was telling me, in no uncertain terms, it was time to move on. No why, just go! Sometime later, I would come to understand why. The Universe was sparing me incredible heartbreak. One of the main purposes for me being in Florida is to be on the beach experiencing as many breathtaking sunrises and sunsets as possible. The deep level of communing with nature for me under those circumstances is hard to explain in human language. Alas, a devastating Red Tide began almost immediately after my departure. Its epic destruction and duration continue to this very day. I could not have been able to bear the sight of so many of my friends, dead on the beach and floating lifeless in the water. I would not have been able to breath or tolerate the stinging in my eyes there either. Sometimes the magic is that we are whisked away – protected from situations not preferred. The Universe knows I can help others better when I dwell in joy!

Here is one of the countless ways Joy has blessed me. After mentioning how I used to give greeting cards in my previous post, a former recipient of such greetings gifted me with a several. And not just any cards, but ones that featured her exquisite fine art and photography. You too can enjoy them via Thank You Dear Kathy! You have brought ongoing joy to me since the time we met and bring immeasurable joy to the world!

Magic Always Comes With A Price – it is always the effect of something aka the price. I previously touched on that with nothing being “free” in Who is this blog for? Each day I look for, or create, the magic in the place where I am as I move closer to another place I’d like to be. I find something to feel joy about while fulfilling my purpose in whatever place I currently am. And, I continue taking baby steps to manifesting another reality. To that end, I again put out my request for leads and information. If you have any ideas or connections to someone in a tropical beach area with warm turquoise waters that needs assistance, please let me know. It could be house-sitting, childcare assistance, travel companion, deck hand, or other mutually beneficial work exchange situation. Kindly contact me to share thoughts
or get more details on help I can provide.

What is the price of everyday magic?
Here is a short beginning to the Neverending Story:
* Ongoing decisions to see the wonder right where you are
* Lighten up – have more fun
* Willingness to be happy over right
* Don’t sweat the small stuff (and it’s all small stuff)
* Imagine/see the world as you delightfully wish it to be
* Recognizing you are on this stage called life and can determine your individual performance
* Shining your light to others constantly making this world a brighter place
* Commitment to live happily ever after
