Inspired

sunsetIt feels like Friday to me. Well, maybe not Friday – more like “the end of the week”, whatever flavor that is. And most of all, I am feeling inspired and moved and very much in alignment.

This week, I have come full circle. Unexpectedly, but then again, I started off the week with the decision that I am open to the magical, to those sparks of spontaneity and synchronicity, to the beauty of uncertainty. And now, here I am. I find myself settled in a place that I had only touched on briefly before. Paths I had previously taken are now all open before me, beautifully merged into one.

Art.

Writing.

Life.

Love.

Being.

It is the most incredible feeling. And making things even more gorgeous, I came across Karen’s post on her epiphany:

I need to just let the faces happen. I don’t have to be in charge.

I don’t have to be in charge.

Say it to yourself. “I don’t have to be in charge.”

Wow. That’s a biggie. All I have to do is pay attention to opening up to something bigger than myself.

As in art, so in life. If I needed a reminder, there it is. It’s Dreamwalking at its best.

And so I go to bed tonight, so inspired. I’m feeling this connection that’s just glorious – to my husband, who’s away at a seminar in New York, to my kids, each of them sleeping peacefully in their bed, and most of all, to the me I’m choosing to be. All of me: art, writing, life, love, being.

I'd love to hear from you: Click here to add your thoughts!

    sigh, it’s taken me 60 years to get to this realisation,
    i do not have to be in charge!
    good one for inspiration.

    Came here looking for your drawing and found myself, quoted, instead! I’m glad you liked that post. It was a huge turning point for me.

    Love your pictures of train layouts! My ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ boy is almost sixteen and a sophomore in high school, even though it seems (to me) that just yesterday he was completely absorbed by Gordon and James and the Troublesome Trucks. Good days. Enjoy them…

    soulbrush, I find it’s the remembering that’s the tricky part! But it’s been getting easier and easier lately.

    Thanks for coming by, Karen. Your epiphany was just beautiful, and I was so glad I found it last night!
