Boom Boom

"You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world." 
- Sheilah Graham

It's one thing to want something.

It's quite another to go and get it.

You say you want that job or that guy or that body or that villa in the South of France.

Villa. South of France.
Oui, merci!

But how badly do you want it? Do you want it badly enough?

If there is something you desperately want in this life...something that you want so badly that not a day goes by without your thoughts turning towards it in some way...stop long enough to figure out not what it is that you want - you already know that...but figure out what you are DOING to get yourself closer to it.

The power is already in you.
Glinda said it must be so!

As I said, wanting is very different than actively doing.

Talking the talk is simple.

Walking the walk is something else all together.


And I do a lot of talking.

And I walk. Yes...I do walk. 

But sometimes the pace is too slow and then I stop because I get tired or I get distracted or my shoelace comes untied or my phone rings and God forbid I try to walk AND talk at the same time!

Excuses, excuses. Talk, talk.


And then...between the chitter chatter...the words turning into sentences...that seem to make sense at the time but in hindsight only took up space...the space between your head and your heart. 

A tough balance...finding it between your head and heart.

Your head telling you that you want want it bad...but it is too don't deserve it will never make why even bother really trying?

My head competes with my heart. But my heart beats if beaming across my face.

You heart pounding in between - drowned out by the words but beating still...boom boom.

Boom boom.

Boom boom.

What makes YOUR heart go boom?

The drum beats as steadily as that feeling you have...that one that visits you daily...the one that stops the noise as quickly as the noise then hushes it out.

But beyond and above the sounds you still feel it.

Boom boom.

Boom boom.

Until the boom becomes a bang...a CRASH!

...a song (or is it an album?) by Roxette.

And the crash! bang! boom! is all you hear. 

It is all you feel.

Until it is quiet.

Ahhh. Quiet.
What I within me already.
Man that Glinda was smart!
Boom boom.

Quiet...because you have it.

You are exactly where you were meant to be.

You have what you want.

Boom boom.

Boom boom.

Did that make any sense at all? 

If not...just listen to your heart.

Boom boom.

Boom boom.
