No guilt...just gentleness

Gentle Amy & Curious Micah

Amy told me yesterday that on those days when I don't quite feel like creating but would rather be outside walking along the beach or exercising at my YMCA and finishing up errands... that it is all part of my creative path.

She said that listening to my body's needs and nurturing myself in these ways creates a balance in my life. This balance will in turn contribute to the strength, vitality and inspiration I will need to run my business.

She said to let go of the guilt on those days and just be gentle on me.

Okay, my dear bosom friend of 20-plus years. Your words of wisdom, delivered in gentleness, have found a home in my heart and in my head.

No guilt...just gentleness.
