This little mouse made me wonder.
The way he reaches and stretches to get to the berries he likes best. Balancing on a twig like a circus animal on the jungle gym. Aren't we like that?
When we really long for something, we will always find a way to get there. Sometimes it takes more time or perseverance in order to achieve it, but if it is a true soul desire we will never stop.
And if we do stop trying?
Then maybe it was not so important after all or we will get so unhappy that we will probably try it again after a while. In a different way.
I wanted to paint for a living since I was very little but I made a huge detour before I realized. Everything I ever did was creative but I never felt totally at my place. I was close but not spot on. Up till now. Making people happy with the things I paint out of pure desire. Transporting energy. Being able to live from that. Pure Joy!
Thanks, thanks thanks!
And even now I'm still reaching for those juicy berries haha. Always things to wish for, but I'm blessed and on my trail.
Ok to be accurate not to say that these berries are the mouses favorite, I don't even know if mice like berries, I just painted a metaphor. I hope you like it. Those eyes full of magic and expectation. And this mouse tells us it's all about the little things, little steps can make you climb a mountain.
Stay nimble this week

'Rise up nimbly
and go on your strange journey
to the ocean of meanings...
