Days 19 Through 35 for the 100 Day Project 2019

This year is my second one participating in the 100 Day project. If you weren’t around in 2018, you can go HERE to see what I did. This project is an amazing way to prove to yourself how important your creativity is to you. And how you are trustworthy and worth showing up for yourself for 3 plus months in a row.

Waiting for Creating

Waiting for Creating

For a very long time, I had no permission to be myself. Seems silly considering there wasn’t anyone threatening my life if I created. But it felt like a NO No. A hidden shame. An act of treason and insanity. Artists are crazy. You can only create if you have some sort of degree in art. You can’t make money doing it. You will be stoned to death if they find out what you are thinking. These messages are deeply rooted in our history. We’re kept in check by fear of authenticity and failure. Our parents want us to be pragmatic...

The Alone Zone

The Alone Zone

Undeniably, we spend our lives alone. We are the only ones in our bodies, in our minds, and in our souls. Our family and friends will love us but they will always think of themselves first. It’s just humanity in action. We are loyal to preserve ourselves. Yet, we are also pack animals. We need to be in community, to be witnessed and heard by our fellowship. To hear that we are in fact not alone. That we aren’t the only ones feeling this way. Leave me alone but hold me. Stay away from me but I’m lonely. Love me but...

Gardening Mojo

Gardening Mojo

Since I had Fiona, I have been unable to regain my gardening mojo. The very thing that brought me to buy a house, dirt to plant a garden in, had become a burden I was buried under. Looking every year at my overgrown garden overwhelmed and depressed me. Last year, I made a charitable donation and received a garden consultation. And this spurred me into enthusiastic gardening action that I hadn’t felt in a while. I head “I could” again. I worked on a couple beds last Summer. And this year, I’ve picked back up where I left off. I...

The Courage to Create

Our Drums

Our Drums

I realize that recently, I’ve been holding on and out, holding my breath for a shift. It’s as if I’m perpetually hoping for “the shift”. The change of perspective and vision for my future, my purpose, my calling. Like waiting for an appearance from God, I want to hear the beat of my drums. Waiting for the inspired high sign that I’ve got this. I see all the people who are banging their drums to their own beat. They believe in their insights, in their truths, and in their paths for which they’ve got a trick , a...

Reject the Meritocracy and Embrace Your Who-ness

Reject the Meritocracy and Embrace Your Who-ness

I had a dream once where I heard myself say,”You are your purpose, you are your reason why.” I woke up and knew it was prophetic. But I didn’t yet believe it. But then yesterday, I had a similar profound thought. What if my purpose on this earth is just to be me and that gave others permission to be themselves? What if living and thriving actually looked like doing all those things I love to do. Connecting and communication with people and talking about self-development, creativity, and authenticity. I always assumed that a life’s...

Self Love Day

Self Love Day

Valentine’s week is here. And I found myself considering what self-love meant to me. Undoubtedly we can not truly pay someone the attention and respect of love unselfishly if we do not have some to spare from our own hearts. But what does self-love look like at it’s best. And can we court or woo ourselves into liking us better? Self-love is part care-taking and part self-compassion. It’s being a good parent and a gracious host. I love myself when I eat good for me food I’m happy to eat and that’s yummy too. I...
