What if…


We are always who we are meant to be…
Inside ourselves.
Not just the outside that we present to the world.

The face in the mirror reflected back to us.
Looking at us.
The eyes of our soul.

Beckoning us closer.
To embrace all that we are.
To live life with courage. To love. To simply be ourselves.

I Want To Be Free To Dream

Amazing to sit at the feet
of one’s own soul.

To honour the Divine within.
To celebrate Her. Today.


In this moment of passion.
Of knowing. Emerging…

I had been trying to force a writing
piece into submission.

Funny true statement.

First of February, on a Full Moon
I submitted “my stuff!”

Only the next day to receive a response in bold print,
“Does your submission call the reader to acton?”

I went back once again to my previous
writing piece, an journal excerpt

to “Follow the Thread.”
I fought an energetic battle of how

to bring this piece into new light.
How do I work this piece into,


Really, I should have gotten the first clue from the universe.
With the English definition of submission in mind…

I was trying hard to make this piece work.
To relate to the reader.

What I failed to see at the time when I was trying so hard,
was how to go back to my original writing piece and see

what I had been trying to follow in my own thread of writing.
“To not give up on my dream of having my book published.”

I had been clutching my pencil so tightly.
Clutching the words of my dreams so close,

that I had lost sight of giving them flight.
To letting go. To trust.

What are the reader’s wanting to read?
What engages them? What engages you?

How do I as a writer, a dreamer, a “souljourner”
convey a clear message of following our thread?

A thread of inspiration. Of insight. Of longing.
To bring forth our dream. Our passion?

Clouds filter through the morning sky.
Airplanes criss cross overhead.

We live on a flight pattern
from the Tri Cities to Seattle, Washington.

“How can my dreams take flight?
Where can my dreams travel?”

These are questions to ask ourselves.
To seek within our soul…

for what holds true for you.
In this moment.

I want to be free to fly don’t you?
To let the sun burn through my desire.

To feel ignited with such intensity.
To break out in song as the birds.

In the back of my mind truth be told,
I often compare my work, my writing

with other fellow writers, poets, and authors.
I am not them.

But can I be free to be myself?
Can we? Ourselves? Be as we are?

Letting the clouds of self-doubt pass over us,
while remaining true to our dreams.

Our calling. Our divine purpose.
Our soul’s cry. Our passion.

As we journey through this life.
Our day.

“I Want to Be. Free. To dream.”

To follow my thread of inspiration…
without restraint of trying to be any which way.

I want to be free to fly don’t you?|
To be as clear as I can.

As I am. Now in this moment with you.
For today. I am excited.

My dreams are taking flight.
I hope your dreams are as well.

I believe in you.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me!

High Five to Yourself!


“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!

High Five to Yourself!

Freedom…Who Am I?


First I had to find out who I was not…
Thus the unraveling of the thread to truth began.

Who am I?

So often over the course of our life we may have found that we are pushed into making decisions! Being in relationships or taking jobs that we did not exactly feel comfortable taking or doing. We simply did them because we grew up doing what was expected of us.

In 1998, my divorce was the first time that I allowed myself the freedom of stepping away from my marriage of nine years, as I began to honour what I was feeling. Because I didn’t have the emotional maturity at the time I continued to find myself looking to be rescued. I would do this again. And again. Wanting someone else to make it all better. Hopefully, for the last time.

When I was younger, my feelings seemed safer to be kept to myself. It created an emotional overload on my system. It caused a midlife meltdown, and the process of getting to know who I am began. Understanding that there was going to be difficult times in my passage “through” did not discourage me as much as the fact that I felt that this process was taking too damn long.

Taking responsibility for oneself is not an easy thing. Many of us avoid it at all costs. There is a price for personal freedom. Having been learning to trust in this lifetime, I only share what I have and am experiencing. It only seems fair to me to let you know it is from my heart and soul that I write of this journey of triumph.

May these words encourage you to know who you are…

To begin the steps to see your life as a place to retreat too,
to reflect.
to simply be with yourself.

It takes as long as it takes they say. They are right I suppose. It does. Welcome the gift to know “Who you are… and to answer, “I am.”

Cheers to the Triumph of Freedom!

Triumph of Writing! Truth Revealed…


It’s hard to remember the details of our life
the periods of time in our experience,

when we have tried so hard to forget
pushing away the memory.

I drive and try to remember what brought me here to having this experience
leaving behind such a deep connection with others.

One cannot go back to what was,
we must continue to move forward.

Let things evolve.

Writing allows us to be honest with ourselves.
To trust the truth…

the answers will be revealed
through the words that we write.

Our Breath


Our breath carries out to others…

Would we be more mindful of our breath,
the uttering of our thoughts & words

if we realized how much they impact
the energy that they carry?

The words forming…on our breath
full of hope, promise & love.
