Adventure Within

IMG_7308

“Adventure within…that is where you find the truth.” – Te’ 

I AM in the process of returning from a short Sabbatical as the last weeks of winter turned into spring. Since the first of March I decided to not engage in social media.

When I deleted all icons from both by iPhone and iPad so the temptation was not there to lure me into endless checking for notifications to see what everyone else is up too. Or how many high fives from followers…

I felt liberated!

Not to say that I didn’t go through some withdrawals in this process. But it was time to give myself a break so that I could renew and focus on creating magic in my life.

For nearly three and a half years now. Pretty much every Wednesday with out fail. I have posted something. Even if only one liner’s and photos of magical moments.

In this writing journey I have connected with some really great people like yourself. From all over the world. It has helped me show up for myself each week.

To search within.
To share experts of my writing that have spoken to my soul and hopefully yours.

So as I return from ‘adventuring within’…I hope you may be inspired to find the truth within yourself and take your own adventure.

High Five to Your Triumph!

Freedom in Forgiveness

“There is freedom in forgiveness.”

…but in my growing up years
I AM learning that in forgiveness

there is freedom.
There is more room and space for love.

PIGEONHOLE

img_0173

Trying to pigeonhole oneself…into a defined space doesn’t fit.

For so many years we may have tried to pigeonhole ourselves into being a certain way.

Trying to fit into a box of our own making.
Perhaps feeling like we did not belong.

Somewhere along the way in our journey
may we find ways to be ourselves…

to not be defined by a space that no longer exists.

High Five to Your Triumph!

Walk with Empathy

image

May we walk with empathy today…

I think we as a society can be too quick to judge.
Often times we think we know better than another.

But do we really?

Have we actually walked in another’s shoes?
Do we carry their hidden scars as our own?

Do we wake up from their nightmares,
in the middle of the night, drenched in their sweat?

Do we grieve silently their tears for a loss
or heartache that we may never have experienced?

Do we really have any right to condemn another
who has walked through the fire of their own life?

Who has been brave enough
to take another breath?

Who are we to say what is right or wrong?

Yet we do each day.
More than we realize.

We judge one another and ourselves harshly.
Eloquently.

We whisper behind closed doors,
in an attempt that they might not hear us.

I don’t know about you,
but I am tired of it.

If you are not here showing up for your life…

Creating your heart out.
Getting up after you fall down.

Stay right where you are.
Breathe into that space that feels hard to reach.

Walk with empathy…in your own shoes!

Compassion

IMG_2188

So often we may not understand
or begin to comprehend
or even recognize

The divine nudge directing us…

To be there for another
To offer comfort
To create a space of compassion.

With our complete and full attention…
No agendas. No distractions. No rushing around.

Simply be present in the moment and listen.
With compassion.

Free To Fly

Te_butterfly_art_crop_sm-3

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!
