Reminding you of the beauty of life through moments…

Simply Me

I’ve learned that I will always be a little too much to some people.

Too soft, too hard, too innocent, too powerful, not enough or too many rough edges…always something.

I may even be told to be quiet, to not bother getting involved, to just relax and not say anything, to not make waves. 

But I’ll continue as I am. I’ll apologize for the mistakes I make and for hurting people unintentionally, because that is who I am. If I apologize for being me – I’m allowing the spectators to douse my fire with their criticisms.

I can handle the discomfort of standing out, but not of cowering in shadows.  

When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.  Lao Tzu

Set Fire To Your Old Self

Dear Old Self,

I’ve set fire to you – destroying the old demons – you’re not needed here anymore.

Making way for change and grace. A choice to grow and be strong. 

The New Self is like that – destroying all that isn’t needed to create a powerful, loving, supreme woman. A woman who is going to make a difference in the world. 

It isn’t enough to connect with my soul’s deepest desires. I have to act. My choices have to align with my desires or I risk it becoming a daydream that never unfolds into precious reality.

It isn’t enough that I know my yearnings, I must fully live the life that I know only I can.

True revolution comes from true revulsion; when things get bad enough, the kitten will kill the lion. Charles Bukowski

Evolving Into Greatness

Everyone has greatness in them. There is nothing humble about shrinking small so that others around you can feel bigger. 

Believe in yourself and in the power of who you can be.

Love yourself for the person you are now. 

Shed the old. Allow the new to embrace you. Evolve. 

Whatever you want to be or to do – do it today. There are so many tomorrows for everything else. 

You’ll never know your strength until you face your greatest weakness – and your only choice is to be strong. 

Dancing the Flame

When compassion fills my heart, 
free from all desire, 
I sit quietly like the earth. 
My silent cry echoes like thunder 
throughout the universe.

Rumi
