Cow Reflection

Cow Reflection

How’s about a life, dear one?

Have you got one? Are you doing the best with it?

These are questions which you need to answer for yourself.

Don’t think that others know best.

No, dear heart; they do not.

You know, dear one, what is best for you.

Think. Think. Think. What, in your heart of hearts, do you really want?

That’s right. What do YOU really want?

Only you have that answer.

You do not need to tell me, dear friend. No, it would be best to keep it to yourself. That’s right. Until you have it very clear within your own mind it would be best to keep it to yourself. Yes, that’s right.

Some of us make the mistake of telling others our innermost dreams only to have them trampled upon. Yes, this is what happens to some who share their innermost dreams. We do not want to see this happen to you, dear friend. No, we do not want to see your innermost dreams treated in this manner. So we say to you, dear friend:

Don’t let anyone trample upon your dreams. No, never ever allow anyone to trample upon your dreams. Keep them to yourself; that’s right. Keep them safe within your own mind until they have been formulated and going about their business becoming more and more a reality. Yes, dear friend, this is how to accomplish your innermost dream.

Now do you understand why it is that we must keep our own counsel in regard to our dream? Yes? No? We’ll tell you:

We need to keep our own counsel (so to speak) so as not to interfere in creating those things that we will need to create in order for our dream to become a reality. That’s right. Were we to let others know, before our dream has taken root, there would be a difficulty in the realisation of our dream due to the disturbance that the thoughts and opinions of others may place upon us. Indeed, we see this happening over and over again. Some, who do not keep their own counsel, are led astray by those offering irrelevant information. This can send you on a slow decline into negative thinking. This, dear friend, can be the beginning of the end for your dream.

Think carefully before setting sail, dear friend. Think upon the manner in which you would like for your dream to end, and then you will find how to begin. Indeed, it may sound like the wrong way to go about creating your dream. However, we can assure you that if you think upon the end, the beginning will become much clearer to you.

May you have as much fun with your dream as you can.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thought with us, Carolyn. I like your advice, “Think about how you want your dream and you will know how to begin.” Very practical and effective. Have a great weekend and enjoy your dinner. Regards.

    1. Thank You Michael… Yes, it seems simple when you think about it…!
      Enjoy your weekend, too…
      We have just finished our dinner, which was a pizza of supreme flavour (albeit a little devilish)…. 🙂

  2. I saw the words: Cow Reflection. I saw the cow. I pushed the button, fully expecting to hear a moo. Instead I heard… was that really you, Carolyn?? How long has this audio feature been available?? Quite extraordinary! : )

    Your caution never to share (vocalize) one’s dreams is one of the most vital and crucially important truths there could ever be. Dreams are much too fragile to share. A single word, a single look can kill them. It’s one of life’s most painful lessons.

    And on that happy note, I say: Moo!

    1. Oh, my dear Mark…! Moo to you…!
      It was only last week that a dear follower announced that she loved my ‘new’ audio feature; so do not be dismayed…! I didn’t have the heart to tell her the audio feature of my Aussie accent with love has been available since the beginning of time. Yes, Mark; my very own ‘Aussie twang’ can be heard on 99% of all Reflections; or wherever there appears a little audio button.

      Does this mean that one, Mark Armstrong, may allow us to hear his dulcet tones to compliment his remarkable illustration talents…? Now, I would enjoy that…! 🙂 Here’s hoping..! 🙂

      Thank you for your company, and your wonderful comments. You are a joy, dear Mark… 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing this 🙂 It’s so inspiring! Reminds me of a bookmark on which it’s written: The Cow of Wisdom – whenever you’re uncertain and you don’t know what to do, the Cow of Wisdom always answers: “Just chill out… and MOO”

  4. I like your message.. and I apologize for not reading! WordPress and its reader stinks. I have now added you to my personal reader!
