Since my son was born 8 months ago, I’ve written a lot.
Here and there, I’ve written in order to stay centered, sane, and to relate my experiences to the big picture.
I write mostly about my experiences post birth and in early motherhood.
I’m in the process of curating these entries to bring to you.
I’m in the process of gaining courage to speak, once again, from a place of honesty and vulnerability as a new woman.
I’m in the process of getting to the place of sharing deeply with you, but not feeling totally naked and exposed.
It takes time, and the muse has yet told me: N O W, say it now.
I’m waiting, listening, and creating (when I can, phew!).
But in the meantime, I’m staying inspired by what I have collected here for you.
These thoughts, vibes, quotes, and pictures are for you. I haven’t forgotten about you, dear one.
In fact, each time I look in my child’s eyes, I see the potential that each of us have to create, be, and experience immense pleasure in being here.
This realization is fueling me to bring you all new material, wisdom, insights, and creative mojo.
Life is truly a gift.
Here are a few of my inspirations today…
“I think the creative process is not about creating something else, it’s the process itself creating who I am.” ~ Mayumi Oda
“My life has taught me that there is a wealth of strength within us, there is nothing we cannot handle. Life presents it’s purpose and beauty in all sorts of ways. The trick is to stay open to one’s strength, to not deny or strive to prove it, but rather to simply have it. ” – Matthew Sanford
“Mindfulness is an effortless, simple process that consists of drawing novel distinctions, that is, noticing new things. The more we notice, the more we become aware of how things change depending on the context and perspective from which they are viewed….when we are mindful, our behavior may be guided by rules and routines, but we stay sensitive to the ways our situation changes.” ~ Ellen Langer
“When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity.” – Linda Naiman
Thank you for being you.
More to come soon, dear hearts…
