A Little More Imagination ... Dare to Dream

 One of the things I'm enjoying in the city is the accessibility to so many fun things and places to experience. If you would have told me (or anyone I know) almost 10 years ago that I would be taking the TTC subway - we would have had a great laugh!!

Taking the subway also means seeing things that I would not have seen if I had driven, like this sign. Though it's part of a Ford ad campaign ~ it reminded me that I need to take more time to exercise my imagination.


When we were children our imagination took us on adventures. How easily a plain old cardboard box became a plane or car, taking us to magical places far away. Consumed by all the responsibilities and day to day living of adulthood, we too often forget to just let our minds wonder, to imagine what could be. I am a firm believer of our thoughts creating our reality - therefore if our thoughts are consumed by that which is currently happening in our life that is what we will continue to create: the same old problems, challenges, limiting believes over and over. However, if we dare to dream, to imagine that which we desire, there will be a shift in the energy we are putting out to the universe. This shift in energy will set in motion the opportunity for great change to happen - for you to have the experiences you dream of, to live the life you want to live.

  6. What a wonderful message! And good for you to go out and exercise your imagination in ways you never thought you would. You look fabulous and I love the print on your blouse!


  7. Dearest Celia,
    This is a brilliant post and I love the great photography!
    Excellent text with great visual reality to it and your face, pondering away--following your imagination.
    Today was a very hectic but good day for both of us.
    Our painter surprised us just as Pieter was napping... He had called our old land line (that we disconnected 3 years ago...) and could not reach us.
    In a hurry we had to empty our garage, so he and his partner could start pressure washing. But I guided them to the front porch to start there first. Woke up Pieter (felt so guilty...) as I could not manage to do it all on my own. Lots of sweating as today it was oh so hot and humid. But we managed and a shower is so good!
    Looking forward to the finished project in a couple of days, after it dries completely. Finally we're on track and no longer waiting for others... So we can take charge of our things as we will be free again.

  8. Love the quote! Definitely inspirational.

    Your outfit is cute. I'm a tunic girl too but I tend to wear mine with jeans or leggings. I like it paired with slacks, makes it more polished.

  9. How fun is this post??? Love your thoughts and outfit - so cute!


  10. Riding the subway is always a trip highlight for my kiddos when we visit the city! Thanks for sharing with us at Spiel the Beans!

  11. Pretty top and outfit! Very thoughtful post, I enjoyed. I often wish I wouldnt mull certain things at night, so I could sleep better, but believe in expressing onesself is an important part of who we are. so true!
    Thank you for linking up with turning heads tuesday!

    1. Hi Jess .. thanks for visiting ... Try keeping a note book by your bed side table ... when thought(s) of things "to do" pop into your head , write them down. The act of writing it down - relieves your subconscious from trying to keep the "to do" to memory ...I find this helpful when I'm working on projects or have lots going on. have a great week ..xo

  12. Great message!

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!
