“Birds flying high

You know how I feel

Sun in the sky

You know how I feel

Breeze drifting on by

You know how I feel

It’s a New day

And I’m feeling good!”

~Jennifer Hudson’s “Feeling Good”~

What a great start to the beginning of an eventful New Year.  A New Year and another chance to begin again.  The slate has been wiped clean, so let’s begin!

First off…..did you check out lovebugsworld new theme!!!  I am so excited because usually my theme involves the inner creativity in me and this new theme is not short of my artistic nature, but it also has meaning.  For weeks I have been dreaming here and there of released balloons and today I decided to do some research on the meaning.  Here’s what I found…..

~People release balloons at Weddings, Funerals, or for personal meaning.  We can view them as a release of grief, a celebration of life, filled with messages, notes of remembrance, poems, etc.  They can also be filled with flower seeds or even bird seeds.

What I also found is that releasing balloons can be harmful.  To our animals and of course when they do come down, it’s littering.  So instead of releasing an actual balloon, let’s release it in spirit.  Let’s vow to let go of anything that will keep us from moving forward into the divined walk that God has placed us here for.

As for why I have been dreaming about Balloons….the only thing I can come up with is because I am embarking on new things in my life.  Transitioning into the next stage of my life.  And I welcome it with open arms!!  I also embrace Change because it is only to make me better!

Eight Balloons

Eight balloons no one was buyin’

All broke loose one afternoon.

Eight balloons with strings a-flyin’,

Free to do what they wanted to.

One flew up to touch the sun – POP!

One thought highways might be fun – POP!

One took a nap in a cactus pile – POP!

One stayed to play with a careless child – POP!

One tried to taste some bacon fryin’ – POP!

One fell in love with a porcupine – POP!

One looked close in a crocodile’s mouth – POP!

One sat around ’til his air ran out – WHOOSH!

Eight balloons no one was buyin’ –

They broke loose and away they flew,

Free to float and free to fly

And free to pop where they wanted to.

My challenge for you for 2013 is to do exactly what it is that elevates you to the next level.  Mentally, Physically, Financially, even Emotionally, and most definitely Spiritually.

Even though it is almost 30 days into the New Year…..Happy New Year from Lovebugsworld to your world!  Stay Tuned…….
