If every day is an awakening,
you will never grow old. You
will just keep growing.
It’s been thirty-three days since my last post. I don’t fully understand why I stepped away from this labor of love, a creative exercise that I enjoy, and one that keeps me connected to cherished friends. It wasn’t a conscious choice – it just happened. Today’s awakening: don’t let busyness get in the way of the important things .
You may not be a Picasso or a Mozart
but you don’t have to be. Just create to
create. Create to remind yourself you’re
still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to
make something too. Create to learn
a bit more about yourself.
I have been creating – a little drawing, a little painting, some beading and once again taking photos on a daily basis, and in the process learning more about myself. Two important lessons: don’t compare, just create, and don’t let the voices in your head conspire to hold you back.
Without change, something sleeps
inside us, and seldom awakens.
The sleeper must awaken.
We’ve lived in Santa Fe for a year now and our lives continues to evolve. There is so much opportunity here for learning and personal expansion that at times it’s overwhelming. How do I choose where to put my time, energy, and focus when there are so many things that interest me, and only 24 hours in a day?
People who follow their joy discover
a depth of creativity and talent
that inspires the world.
One of the best things about Santa Fe is the people who live here. So many have followed their joy and found themselves in the ‘City Different’, living rich and fulfilling lives. I am continually inspired by the people I meet, and have made new friends easily – friends who instill in me a desire to keep moving forward in all areas of my life – kindred spirits.
If you can see your path laid out in front
of you step by step, you know it’s not
your path. Your own path you make
with every step you take. That’s why
it’s your path.
So, I continue down my path step by step, not knowing exactly where I’m going but trusting that, because I’m following my joy, I’m on the right path.
