Unleash the Hounds

My friend posted her Wordless Wednesday filled with beautiful images of vegetables. She makes cooking seem so heartwarmingly wonderful that I envy her ease in living her dream. Her cookbook is soon to be landing at my front door and I cannot wait to try all of the naturally gluten free wonder in it.

But today is a day of a different sort – it’s a day to get creative – because I woke again at the wee hours of the morning – too wee for me – the 3AM variety – where I am trying to slay the beast that is hovering near by. I meditated. I drank my decaf. I read. I began work at 7AM – exhausted.

So in lieu of Wordless Wednesday – I offer up a gift of words to buffer the demons – as I unleash these words I imagine them to be vicious hounds to hunt down the beasts and tear them to pieces – dollar sign by dollar sign:


With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

— Wayne W. Dyer
