PERFECT BEGINNING

How many times have you waited for…

The perfect moment. The perfect time. The perfect beginning. To begin? She asked

She thought of all the things that She “had” to do.

All of the things that She “wanted” to do.
Everything that She had “dreamed” of doing.

She realized She had been afraid of failing.

Afraid of even trying.
Afraid that She wouldn’t do it right.

Simply afraid that She wouldn’t know how

or may not meet another’s approval
or feel supported in Her endeavors.

All the fears that She had as a child somehow carried themselves into Her adulthood.

She grew weary
of carrying Her past around with Her.

So She began…to let go

of trying so hard
of being afraid.

She found Her freedom in courage.
She began to embrace HerSelf.
She felt compassion.
She knew love.

She began to love Her perfect self.

Perfect. Recently I had a conversation about how we hide behind our perfectionism. Most often we do not get much completed. At least as much as we would like too. Thinking that what it is we want to do must somehow be perfect before we begin it.

This awareness is most freeing. Liberating actually. It really helps explain a great deal as I AM creating. I think back on all the things in my life that I haven’t done. The things that I have struggled to get done. Or am afraid of beginning.

So, begin.

May you claim your perfect self… She said

LIFE

CDC91CDA-00CC-4E53-A0E6-E3F7C25756C5

It takes as long as it takes…She said.
Sometimes longer.  

It does not matter in the grand scheme of life how long it takes to reach your goal.

A decade. A lifetime. 

What matters is your working towards your goal in this lifetime.

It’s called LIFE…She said.

COURGE TO RISE

Where is your courage to rise? She asked

It takes a great deal of courage

to rise up
to face your own self
to see your life as it is
to accept that you can forgive yourself
to embrace your own rising with joy.

As She raised Her face upward…
know that courage is within you to rise.

YOUR WRITING

6BD35DD8-5EDA-4553-A736-2BD3A0304F35

“For many of us writing creates its own course of direction…”

It is a force all its own.
Taking us the writer on a journey that we may choose to share or not.

We as a writer may command this creation… 

of self expression
of the telling of the story
or orchestrating a melody of poetic narrative.

Wherever it leads us it is up to us to follow its insight…

Where else can one wield such power?
If not for the use of one’s own words?

Writing does not need to be about slandering the ignorant
or judging an uninterested party.

Writing can provide a way
to be our own active participant in our life…

of which from an outside perspective
we may also appear as an observer.

CRESCENT SHADOWS

As She made Her way along the river’s edge…crescent shadows fell across Her path.

The solar eclipse
of the century.

Bringing forth a new light
as the sun fully shone once again.

New energy emerged from within Her…
as crescent shadows cast their magic spell.

She felt light emerge out of the darkness… 
creating space to take hold of ones dreams. 

Love filled the spaces where fear and anxiety wanted to linger…creating space

to understand
to accept what is a given
to forgive what feels hard to heal
to trust the magic of our journey unfolding as we celebrate triumph!

High Five to Your Journey!
