Dare to Shine...Transform Expand Optimize

Recently I came across my high school graduation album I made back in 1996…yes, it has been THAT long. While reading my teenage heartfelt reflections and desires for my life, I realized that so many of the dreams I held for myself as a young woman have been fully realized…that I AM LIVING MY DREAMS right here RIGHT NOW!

What a delightful surprise to become aware that everything is perfect just as it is.

And, to learn that everything I dream, I can manifest.

What we desire can become our reality.

Our universe is abundant with possibility.

And when we tune in, when we open our hearts, when we relax our minds, when we are in the flow,

EVERYTHING is POSSIBLE.

EVERYTHING is PERFECT.

So, on this day after Thanksgiving, I remind myself, and I remind you, my beloved readers,

ALL IS WELL.

We are in the perfect place in…

POETRY PROMPT | Never Stop Learning

In Inspiration on November 20, 2012 at 11:49 pm

{poem by poem}

Never stop learning. When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself, “I will learn one thing today.” It is food for the imagination and the mind. The role of the poet is to pay attention, learn, and write about it. There are many sources for continual learning, but a fun source that I lean on often is TED talks ( ted.com ). These brief talks are given by thought leaders from around the world and they bring ideas worth spreading. Ted has a category of talks that they call TheCreative Spark. Creativity and imagination are the themes that run through all of these talks and they are worth listening to as a way to engage with other artists, writers, poets, and thinkers with the same needs, fears, and relationship with possibility.

Your Elusive Creative Genius, is a beautifully insightful talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert who explores ancient ways of thinking…

ROCKSTAR RONAN

Ronan. Today seemed like a really, really long day. The days without you never fly by anymore. They still seem to be never-ending. Today, seemed extra long for some reason. Looking back I cannot even remember what I did, but as I sit here and think about it, I know. I missed you with every single step I took just like I always do. I had to go to Target, to stock up on some things. I was in the middle of grabbing some stuff and I had one of those moments where I thought to myself, “Today feels like a really hard day for some reason. You should go back home and go to bed for the whole day.” I finished up my Target trip and told myself to power through the day and just get some things done. It was one of those days where I had to…

ROCKSTAR RONAN

Ronan. Today was one of those days where I just could not stop crying. I cried after I dropped your brothers off at school, I cried over every single Taylor Swift song that came on the C.D. I was listening to, I cried when I ran over to the mall looking for a very specific gift which I could not find, I cried when I went over to the baby girl section and tried to look at the clothes. I had a flashback to the days of when I used to ohhhh and awwww over baby girl clothes. Today, I didn’t see anything I liked and I just wanted to rip everything off of the racks. What is wrong with me? Then I remembered. Grief. Hormones. Pregnancy. Stress. Not sleeping well. Missing you. A lot is wrong with me, actually. WTF asshole mother fucker who thought I could handle all…
