A Year of Yes: A backflip off a cliff and a visit with a blue whale

Whenever I need a dose of encouragement, two recurring dreams find their way into my slumber:

1.) In the first one, I walk outside to the edge of a cliff, turn around, and do a backflip into the canyon. Rather than falling, I fly.

2.) In the second one, I’m scuba diving. I paddle up to a Blue Whale (the largest animal to ever live). I pat the whale’s cheek. The whale winks at me and says, “I’m so happy to see you again.”

I don’t know how to do a backflip, I have a healthy fear of heights and open water, and I don’t know how to scuba dive. And yet, these two dreams bring me a lot of peace. I think it’s the Universe’s way of telling me, “You got this.”

Nothing says joy like a parade of colorful dachshunds wearing glasses. It was rainy and cold this morning as I was walking my dachshund, Phineas. And as we walked by this optometrist's storefront I couldn't help but smile. Wishing you a colorful, cuddly Sunday.
