There is something extraordinary about today, you can’t quite put your finger on it. For a moment you imagine you are lying in a meadow with a dandelion like you did as a child. You make a wish. You tell someone who isn’t there you love them. You write yourself poetry; you list out your dreams; you say something bold. You close your eyes, inhale deeply, and then heave out your energy in one wild breath, leaving nothing but an empty stem. Your words gust through the air on the trails of a thousand little florets to plant your good energy into the earth, and the universe always listens.
