you are seen,
Can you be happy and at the same time feel like you’re going through something awful, that’s ripping at your muscle of faith, and squeezing your hope into a dark hole?
Cuz there’s a part of me that has a reserve of faith, I never run out.
My imagination keeps pulling me away from what I see in reality and deep into what I feel is possible.
Call to yourself what you feel is possible, no matter how things look to everybody else.
Who would you be without your fear?
Shakti Gawain wrote Creative Visualization, a remarkable little book that gave birth to the whole law of attraction child!
I read it when I was about 28. My Saturn Returns was simply horrible. During that tunnel through darkness, I wrote poetry on the floor of my Los Angeles apartment trying to forgive myself for living a wandering adult life.
I deeply felt life was punishing me for being an artist,
accusing me for continually desiring new palates,
shaking a finger at my operation to shape and sculpt new experiences because
monotony bored my senses.
The tone of my journals keep indicating my unresolved obsession with that same question every 10 years. Now at 47, I face another internal and external rumbling for change.
I’ll have to create a pathway to a land of dreams using my tools: faith and art.
In retrospect of the 47 years of fear and curiosity, life is as life does, meanwhile
I have created a me I like and trust.

thanks for reading today,
We’re always trying to get there, to make it!
So much self help is focused on teaching us how to help ourselves to more.
Get more. Have more. Earn more.
Maybe we could use a bit of help learning how to feel good about what we have.
What we have.
And not for any other reason than to feel good right now.
Call it gratitude.
Gratitude has become another puffy word, like the words authentic and love.
We toss these words up and fumble to catch them.
Why have they become so hard to hold, gently?
Could we let them sit within our grasp without squeezing so tight and slipping out of our hands?
Feel grateful not because you’ve learned that doing this will work to bring more to you (though it might), and not because it makes you a good person (though it pretty much could), and not because feeling grateful is a strategy to change your energetic vibration (although it pretty much will).
Feel grateful because this moment matters just as much as your next, just as much as 6 months from now, just as much as when you do have the right boyfriend, enough money, perfect abs, a promotion.
This moment is happening. It’s your life.
You and your life are worth Celebrating just as is.
You have made it! Here.
You are already here.
Remember your big dreams for 2015?
They are worth your attention and discipline!
For many of our goals, we need to assemble with groups of like-minded, focused, tenacious souls who simply recognize our greatness and cheer us on.
You and I, we can do that for each other… right here!
Here are a few of my beLoved goals for the year:
✘ Publish my book for sale on Amazon
✘ Submit articles to my favorite online magazines like Rebelle Society, The Phoenix Soul, Blackberry A Magazine
✘ Use my TRX once a week
✘ Do scorpion pose
✘ Get THE WANDERING PEBBLE up and filled with art
✘ Make a fitness/wellness video every month!
Expect to see a new VID here every month!
So please, join me in fulfilling your passions.
Then come back through and show me your realized goal!
Smile! You’re at the best WordPress.com site ever
