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

MAGICAL JOY

Sometime ago
somehow…

the lines had blurred
between

Her past and creating
Her future.

She chose to be clear and live
in the present moment…

of magical joy!

TRIBUTE to ANGEL BAILEY

1609FC29-D885-44FD-87A6-5780120F7480

She lives on in the magic of my joy…

She left days after my Golden 50th birthday. She left this earth plane after her work was done. She left when her mama knew Her joy as Her own soul. 

As the summer sun faded…
our beloved Angel Bailey
took her last breath..

As tears of grief and shock
streamed down our faces
we stroked her golden fur
one last time.

Blessing
all the joy and love
she had given us.

She is so entrenched in my soul
that as my heart grieves for her physical body
to run and hike and dance with me…

She is within me
now in this magical moment
of joy in honor of my sweet girl.

I AM forever blessed and full of gratitude
that no words can really express this awareness
to continue my journey in the manner of joy as she lived.

High Five to the Triumph of Joy!

I WISH

IMG_8613

I wish you could see yourself
as I see you…

as you come to know yourself
to be perfectly you.

I wish I could show you …
yourself

as a grin spreads your lips wide
across your beautiful face

as joy dances from the depth
of your eyes.

I wish for you to know
the beauty and joy of your soul.

That’s all I ask
that is everything right there.

This is my wish…for you.

High Five to Your Triumph!

CRESCENT SHADOWS

IMG_8476.JPG

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!

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.

High Five to Your Triumph!
