Rise & Shine


I’d like to know
if the morning light
has awaken your soul.

If you will rise up
from within yourself
and shine.

I want to know
if when joy breaks free
upon your face,

if you will gladly
share your smile
with another.

I’d like to know
if you dare
to dream…

To live out your desires.
To create magic!

High Five as You Rise & Shine!

Lost. Tossed at Sea


“Celebrate one another and ourselves from where we are.” – Te’

Do you ever feel like you are either on your own ship
or are on the shore as a ship sets sail?

Can you find it in your heart to know that you will never be left behind?
That you are never truly lost. At least not for long.

That there is a place for all the pieces of your life.
Even in the letting go.

When you have given of your heart and soul…

Conquering lands afar in unchartered, unfamiliar territory.
Like a pirate. In search of buried treasure.

Will you celebrate being found after being tossed at sea?

High Five to You!

Buried Treasure


“In search of buried treasure. Within myself. I find everything.”  – Te’

As I write, it seems as as if I am building a new ship…

Using some of the ‘salvageable’ pieces from the wreckage of an old life.
Integrating the pieces that fit.
Renewing what is sacred.

Some new pieces may have been gifted.
Some have been collected along the way.
Some even purchased.

When we are in the midst of creating ourselves, on our journey…

Some of our friends and family may feel neglected.
That we have somehow forgotten them. They may even feel abandoned.
Like we have either jumped ship or dumped them overboard.

In reality the duo of opposites is true…
Delving into deep waters.
In search of buried treasure. Within oneself. We find everything.

High Five to finding buried treasure!

Free To Fly


As she sat across from her dear angel friend celebrating together, she leaned in to say,

“I feel like I am on the edge of something…I don’t want to fall down. Ever again.

Or go running & screaming back to where I came from.”

Her angel smiled widely and replied back, “You don’t have too. Now you can fly!”

You are Free to Fly!
