High Five to Yourself!

cropped-img_02782.jpg

“High Five “ is something silly I began to do, to congratulate myself! Whenever I accomplished what I felt was really great, I would say out loud; “Great job Te’!” “Way to go sister!” “You are awesome!”

I would even “high five” myself in front of my boys. They still think I am a bit crazy. But hey, who isn’t?

Today I challenge us to “high five” ourselves. Feel the magic and power of acknowledging ourselves…because we are great. We are making a difference as we create. We are inspiring the world!

Live Dangerously

IMG_0160

I am daringly inspired by this perspective of living dangerously!

A view brought to me by my dear artist friend and fellow writer,

Gordon Hays who has his own radio show called, “The Good Life with Gordon”.

Recently on his show, he discussed how you can choose to “live dangerously by putting yourself out there…

By finding ways to express yourself creatively.”
With passion.

I have come to know that your purpose is your passion.
It is your calling.

That which you find yourselves totally, utterly and completely immersed in.
That which you lose yourself in creatively.

For me it is writing!

What is your passion?
What makes you come alive?

To live dangerously…

May be threatening to others who are comfortable with who you are now.
When you change they may either be inspired by you or perhaps threatened.

Danger presents risks. Uncertainty. New Possibilities.
It is a bit wild. But don’t we all have a wild side within us?

High Five to living a dangerous life!”

Illuminate Triumph!

Today I hope that you find yourself breathing a little freer. A bit deeper. Peacefully feeling uplifted.

May your life offer you insight and shed some light on your path to help you illuminate your dreams.

You may have struggled through the years to show up for yourself in real ways that you wanted to matter.

Can you hold the space of silence between the past and present where no words can fill the distance? Knowing that only this moment is where you are…

May you illuminate triumph as you bring forth your work as an artist out into the world. 

High Five to You!

Gratitude

“I am finding myself in that moment…gratitude finds me wanting nothing more.”

Do you ever find yourself having one of those moments where you are so full…simply full of gratitude for the love and blessing of friends that your heart swells and there are no words? I want to take a moment and thank you fellow ‘blog followers’ who have given me the acknowledgement to share my work. High Five to you all!

Cheers for sharing the journey!

What is Your Triumph?

Triumph Rock

I do not know what your triumph is for yourself.

What you long to do in the marrow of your bones.
What keeps you awake at night and wrestles with you in your sleep,
that enters your dreams and rattles the chains of your fears in your waking.

But I will say this…

breathe into that space of your knowing
let the wanting, the longing
breathe out into the world for the manifesting of your desires.

Keep it simple.
Make it clear.

So clear that there isn’t a moment of hesitation from when you utter your breath beyond the thought…that you have no doubt in your mind that when you blink all this will be gone,
vanished into the unknown abyss of your life as you have known it.

I have been there.

In despair.
In longing.
In these fragments of time that have put me in darkness for days.

I will not be afraid of remembering what I am up too. Ever again.

May you offer your gift to the world as I offer mine to you now.

Follow the Thread

How many times in your life have you gone off on tangents? Following threads that left you feeling lost from yourself? Sometimes more than days would pass and I would find myself wondering what the hell I was doing. Now this fear becomes such a strong force of determination.

Life has a way of carrying us along, sometimes in a direction that we are not present to. Inspiration fading in and out like waves, sometimes crashing.

All the years that I have taken jobs because of what I thought I should be doing, instead of focusing on what I wanted to do deep down and somehow continued to bury.

How many times over the years had I written about writing this book, any book, “The Book” and not taken the time to sit down on my bum and do the time? Let me tell you it has been a lot of years.

Perhaps one reading this, such as yourself, would say that I was not dedicated enough. Focused or committed. And perhaps, I or another would agree with you. This is the perfect time.

Surely, I had every intention of bowing into the grace of this magnificent universe and completing my first book. Another could say that when the time is right things will come together. I would agree, but I am also learning in my rather “Te’ tangent” way that in following the thread a great deal goes into the tapestry of our life. Life. Some wake up and know what they are to do. And they go and do it. Over and over again. Day in and day out. Sometimes with great joy. Sometimes with great trepidation.

My high five to myself has been to dedicate this moment in time to doing with love what I have longed for within my soul for years. Lifetimes perhaps. I celebrate that this morning I am engaged in just that. Writing.
