Another Moment of Triumph

As I begin my day with prayer, mediation, and a cup of coffee…
the sun is coming up over the horizon.
I am taken into another moment of triumph.

The day dawns.
All that happened yesterday is past.

What is before me is the moment.

As I bring pen to paper to write.
I am brought into the sacredness of my soul.

I know of the passion to express the longing within me.

And as I stretch in the morning light in yoga, I breathe into the aches and tension…
remembering to bless the movement as I bow in gratitude.

My triumph is knowing that I am alive.

I have not always felt such rich passion for waking up.
Many mornings I have found the pillow covered over my head.

I have fumbled with my desire to write and get my words beyond the pages of my journals.
For years.

To know that I am here with you amidst these words.
Words that I have yearned to write.

Words that may be speaking to a hidden part of yourself that is seeking your own triumph.

I am filled with such joy. It is indeed a blessing to be in the intimate space of your life.
Where awareness meets your heart and the space comes alive within.

As I Am

As I close my eyes,
I see.

As I see,
I am led.

As I am led,
I follow.

As I follow,
I am guided.

As I am guided,
I am inspired.

As I am inspired,
I create.

As I create,
I become.

As I become,
I am.

As I AM!

My dear soul

My dear soul,

I listen to the wind
sing through the trees.

Birds take flight
joining the song.

I hear a wish…
a trains whistle,

sounding a chorus
of dreams. 

Grasses bow
in acknowledgment.

Flower petals
quietly surrender.

A moment
of joyous harmony.

All things connect
to my dear soul.

My Moment of Triumph

“Rather than telling yourself you are too busy to pursue an activity you love, use the following affirmation: I intend to take time for myself to live the life that I came here to live” -Wayne Dyer

Te’ Werner with Dr. Wayne Dyer

My Moment of Triumph

Last Spring I flew to a Writer’s Conference in Denver, Colorado hosted by Hay House. I sat in a large conference of fellow writers and felt the utter reverence of honoring the writer within myself.

For all the years that had faded into the next without much heed, this moment that I sat with myself to capture inspiration, is my triumph!

I acknowledge myself here with you.

Go live your life. Create the story of your dreams.

Live with undeniable passion for the absolute gift of life that you are.

Breathe into your life all that you are.

Declare triumph in your life!

In the Telling of Your Story

“It is in the telling of your story that life begins to be brought forth on paper.
In its utterance alone once it is read, where one finds understanding.

An acknowledgment of recognizing a place of belonging.

A deeper sense of self. A freedom to live out one’s own story.”

Cheers to Triumph!
