swirly, canon digital rebel xti

I laid in bed tonight starring at a dark ceiling with my thoughts running in a thousand different directions. So, I got up and grabbed Keri's book, which was the first one my eyes focused on up in my studio. I closed my eyes and asked to be led to something I needed to hear and this quote was on the chosen page...

"Everybody is original, if they tell the truth, if they speak from their true self.
But it must be from their true self and not from the self they think they should be.
So remember these two things: you are talented and you are original."

~ Brenda Ueland

Interesting because I've been talking about this very thing with a few close friends this week in regards to my previous post.

Thank you for your outpouring of support and love of me speaking my absolute bare bones truth about where I am at on this journey.

It was freeing...and movement is happening in my heart.

I love that book! Have you read 'If you want to write' by Brenda Ueland? It is about writing, but also about life and it is filled with wisdom!

Wishing you sweet dreams!

I rarely comment here but I need to tell you that you are a constant inspiration to me.

Every time I visit here my heart opens up and prays that you receive what you wish for.

I heart that book too...and what you did in the previous post was indeed freeing...and so so brave, because it is hard to put your heart and soul out there, but you did.

And I am so happy that are feeling that shift within...it feels good. :-)

Here is to continuing the journey with both truth and love in your heart and being...and being where you need to be when you need to be there....and feeling safe in that.
