Whole Wide World... open hands

"I wanna hold the whole wide world right here in my open hands...
maybe I'm just a little girl...
A little girl with great big plans."

- Mindy Gledhill (Whole Wide World)

Do you remember that feeling as a child when you happened to find a lizard on a rock (look closely - he is there), and did not care if your Sunday best got dirty because you were collecting rose petals and dreaming big dreams? Please listen to the song (thank you, Kate, for sharing) and remember the joy of taking chances, and being committed to what others may call a crazy dream.

What are your dreams that open your hands to holding the whole wide world?
I hope you will be inspired to commit to the pleasure of making it happen... see you in a 100 miles...

Oh, I LOVE this song! Thanks for introducing it to me. I feel like doing a twirl and spin around my living room while listening to it. I am definitely a little girl with great big plans and dreams. :)

Kate said...

Hello Karen!
Loved the photo's and I saw the little lizard..how cute. I really enjoyed the video and the song...I'm still that little girl even though I'm looking down the very tip of the barrel at 60. Some things never change you know ;) Have a wonderful weekend.

Is this your garden? It's lovely. All those roses make me want to hope right in and explore. So I'll always be a big, big dreamer. But for some reason I hesitate to share my big dreams. But here goes...I want to someday make my living from my creative endeavors. Writing, photography, sewing, art. There, I said it. Thanks for the encouragement to share. =)

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
