shedding

who you be?

if the noise inside gets too loud, you’ll never hear

yourself.

better to write her

draw her

scribble her onto an unused napkin and stick her in your purse.

carry her with you everyday.

she needs to be defined.

she needs to be with you every moment

not crumpled in a pile of mess or jumbled under layers of judgment

and fear.

 

let her loose.

let the WiLD breathe.

I’m addicted.

I’m a junkie. I study like a freak. I devour programs on self-growth, energy healing, spiritual principles, bodywise information.

I don’t need to go back to school again–ever. There’re teachers offering brilliant stuff online that really digs deep intellectually. Lisa Nichols. Anne Lamott. Danielle LaPorte. Tony Robbins. Brendon Burchard (Imma take a breath…)

I am addicted.

And here’s the problem: when I find myself stuck in somebody’s

virtual classroom more than I’m out in the world actually using my education,

then being a life-long “studier” becomes a blanket to hide under. 

Sometimes life-long students need to close the books and get wise by doing.

Me. Now.
