Clearing… and stuff

A piece of Mondo Beyondo is “clearing” – clearing space in your mind, house, life, universe. Release things that are not, do not add to your life – make room for new, exciting things. Being open to change. I tell ya, the folks taking this class are pretty amazing and interesting.

Anyhow, three bags of stuff leaving the house thru the front door (Goodwill, here we come) and two out the back door (trash!).

My kitties better keep moving, that’s all I’m saying!

I went thru a shelf of books – why did I to keep The Little Prince, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The Idylls of the King? Old books that have been on the shelf forever and just need to be there. Idylls of the King has pages falling out.

I also kept “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” – a classic. Some days are like that, even in Australia.

Dream Big

I’m posting this song again because I like it and it fit in with the online class I’m taking – Mondo Beyondo. I don’t think we spend enough time dreaming these days. Things are tough, money is tight, life is crazy busy – but taking some time to dream is good for the soul. I created my first Mondo Beyondo list a week plus ago and put it away for a week. I opened it on Monday and read it (I still need to do some more work with it this week) but it was kind of fun. Some funny stuff, interesting stuff, scary stuff and some are you kidding me stuff!?!?! Maybe I’ll share some of it here – someday… for now, enjoy the song… I do.

Here are the lyrics:

(Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband)

When you cry be sure to dry your eyes
‘Cause better days are sure to come
And when you smile be sure to smile wide
Don’t let them know that they have won
And when you walk, walk with pride
Don’t show the hurt inside
Because the pain will soon be gone

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
‘Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud
‘Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it’ll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
‘Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud
‘Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it’ll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
‘Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

Mondo Beyondo

ya, that’s what I said… I’m taking an online class to help me to dream big (www.mondobeyondo.org).

It’s pretty cool so far and one of the first lessons was to take a sheet of affirmations, print and cut them out and place them somewhere to look at, review, think/dream about, encourage… geez, you pick the verb.

Mine are on the windowsill with three pals from the last J2A group. Coincidence that they are two artists and a pirate with a map? Maybe, maybe not.
