Creative Edge

“Go and do that which draws you to create…
that pulls you to the edge of your life.

Let your ‘creative edge’ take you on a journey,
as you honor your sacred self. Your soul.”

A Writer’s Journal

image

To be with my words as they capture moments
of time.

My work as a writer and my need to have solitude.

To find clarity and truth in what I am to share.

To honour my knowing. This longing to write.

The days that I do not write.
I feel estranged from myself.

“It is only when I write that I begin to create.” – Te’

Bless this day and all it brings!

Once Again…

image

Once again to feel a surge of spring
bursting like a strong green shoot,
ready to be free from the confines
of the darkness of winter.

A bud ever tender, yet sturdy.

Once again to be ready
to open as a bud.
Tenderly. Slowly. Eagerly.
To burst free and bloom.

Her Soul’s Triumph

image

She listened to the song
the words being played
the wind carrying
her dreams to her.

The distance sound
of the rumbling river
where her tomorrow
became today…

A moment of triumph!

It Takes Courage

IMG_4038

It Takes Courage.

To take a different prospective.
To step back or away.
To look at our situation with new eyes.

We must be willing to see what is being shown us.

Not just what we want to see.
Or think we are seeing.
Or how it should look.

Because usually things are not as they appear…

It is how we approach what we see.
How we take action or choose to react.
How we are willing to face what is.

It takes courage.

When I began writing this book,
it took on many shapes and forms.

It began to take on a voice of its own.
Calling me to let the words speak for themselves. 

Honestly.
Openly.
As courageously as I possibly could.

Along the way, everything shifted.

My inner pain of feeling fearful,
my perceived outer bravery
began to work together.

We struck up quite a rhythm.
Somedays quite truthfully,
I was out numbered.

As I began to get out of may.
A new way formed.
A direction in my journey was created.

“It was like all the years of self doubt and determination decided to write a song that began to deeply and quite profoundly resonate with my soul.

I heard “Her” more deeply.

It didn’t feel like a fanciful dance where the music ends.
Where you are left standing alone on the dance floor of your life.

The song carried into my days freeing the ache of my longing.
Filling my dreams with messages that I could create magic…

Bringing into my life honour for myself. My dreams. Others.”
It takes courage to look at our lives, our work and let it unfold.

High Five to Courage!

3 Ways to Experience Triumph!

Triumph Rock

“Experiencing a triumph…is like finding buried treasure within yourself.” – Te’

Daily show up for yourself: in real ways that ‘matter’ to you.

  • Do something that feels meaningful to you. Walk in nature.
  • Write in your journal. Do some gentle yoga stretches. Breathe.
  • Sit with a cup of tea for a few moments and simply enjoy your own company!

Practice daily gratitude: give thanks.

  • To the people in your life that contribute, encourage and celebrate your endeavors.
  • Say a prayer. Write a thank you note. Visit a shut in. Share yourself with another.
  • Find a blessing in what you are experiencing.

Celebrate daily progress: daily effort, however seemingly small.

  • Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers or better yet plant some flowers.
  • Delight in clearing off your desk. Call a friend to share your triumph.
  • Smile at yourself in the mirror. Give yourself a high five!

High Five to You!
