Possible Future? The End of the Bookshop

Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. 

It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. 

You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. 

That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.” ― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Express Yourself

A recipe for healing and personal growth:

"Queen of the Dragonflies" by Kathie Briggs
Honor yourself.

Take of yourself.

Love yourself.

Don't settle or tolerate mistreatment from anyone.

Ask for what you want.

If you don't say what you want, then you're not going to get it.

Put it out into the Universe.

If you don't know what you want, go on a journey within.

Find your inner strength.

Speak to your inner child.

Tap into your passion, intuition, and wisdom.

Each one of us has a unique gift, strength and talent that longs for expression in the world.

Claim your power.

Do what you love.

And then share it with the world.

"Remember that you are
a human being with a soul
and the divine gift
of articulate speech"

--George Bernard Shaw
