Early Retreat: Laying Foundations


"I learned this, at least, by experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours... ~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden 
Source: The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau



I looked at my Vision Board...



I haven't seen it for a while ~ a very long while...until my friend Linda Lee asked me about it a week ago...

While at my brother's house, certain emotions were awakened... My sentiments for having my own family, living in a simple house, having kids were 'again' raised into my consciousness.

While praying, as I described who I'd like to be with ~ I asked God for someone who has the same vision as I ~ my niece laughingly told me that I was looking for a partner in Catechesis more than a boyfriend...

I have romanticized love relationships...






based on what I've watched...

...what I felt...








...what I've read...








... songs I've heard...




I had this only in my head...

...illusions which vanish with emotions once caught up with life's realities...

It sounds funny especially coming from me...but whenever I think of that day I cut my hair and dyed it red immediately after breaking up...Ooo,  I just have to ask myself again the basis of my decisions...



If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. ~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden



I've taken away certain pieces of my VB only to put them back again...  Perhaps, God has other answers that I've been ignoring or putting on hold...

But I did see a small school for kids in my dream... I saw children and I saw angels washing them... Let's see how God wishes this to be...
