Where’s the time going? Is time flying?
Slow it down, cowgirl. Pull on the reins and take a look around, up and down, and inside yourself.
All the talk of living up to our potential simply means that you are a gifted treasure, so you need to dig in and pull out your shine.
Wouldn’t it be a shame to wake up in 15 years with a whole bunch of SHOULD’OF in your mouth?
Pop the chest and check your jewels. Use your talent, skill, genius, drive, wonder, will, curiosity, and fortitude to pursue a fulfilling life.
Some folks are against ambition. I know why.
Because they think it leads to burnout and a feeling that you’ll always need more to be happy.
I think you need to grow to be happy.
So grow. Be thankful for every inch you expand.
Set some goals. Give meaning to your life. Bypass regret. Live above ordinary.
I will, too.
Making every dream come true. That’s my goal.
I met Donna when I was 14 and 15 years old.
before the workout,
before the jam,
i get warm.

Perhaps there’s nothing to worry for
perhaps if i simply state my desire
say thank you,
then stand up and
walk to it,
that’d be sufficient.
i like that.
if i keep my imagination
to my prayer
i wouldn’t have to hope for
i like that.

I am an artist.
Create your art, and name yourself: artist.
all over your canvases, notebooks, iPads, laptops, journals, microphones, and pottery wheels without restraint or fear that someone might question your validity.
You don’t need permission if you have a pulse.
Because art belongs to our souls, not our egos.
i love ya
i wiggled into you
(you were worth the wait)
through grateful hips
shoulders praising morning
i pointed these feet
while white strands caught my eyelashes
i increased the decision
taking longer strides
(trusting myself for
the 108th time)
letting what I felt
swallowed the noise
letting the sound of light play
from my body
making the days

What are you waiting for?
Are you actually waiting? For the right moment, the courage, a magic stick to tap the back of your ear and bless you with stock, proficiency, and magnetism?
Well, here it is.
I am waving my… uh… give me a moment…
Pretend it is the wand you’ve been expecting, and let it anoint you with
the drive and decision you always hoped this day would give you.
Now, become the person you’ve imagined.

What to do…
when the person you thought you’d love forever
makes you sad, manipulates, cannot relate to your desire for growth?
How do you break-up with a best friend?
Do you stay when you’ve grown in different directions?
Kids know how to find friends who align with them.
We need to do the same as adults.
You are not a bad person to want joy and alignment.

This is from my movement journal. I write to journal, too.
I am a WiLD journaler. I sit with paper/pen/cold coffee every morn of every day. The journal is a mirror.
I have seen myself.
