The Call That Beckons You to Answer

FreedomThe truth doesn’t show itself in niceties.

It doesn’t come from pushing down, holding back, staying polite, but angry.

Honesty doesn’t derive from hiding away, pretending everything is all right.

It is a force that won’t be ignored

that will rattle, ruin and rot your insides

if not answered to be released.

The call is not to mold yourself into the other

The answer is to embrace the fear and stand in it courageously.

The real battle isn’t with the skeletons out there

The real fight is in you.

“Will you listen?” it asks.

Will you confront the real issue that makes you erupt in jealousy, resentment and fear?

Underneath all the Dolce & Gabbana, the Kate Spade and the LV,

do you love me?

will you see me?

do you know that you are enough?

Instead we wait for the questions to be answered from the outside

in promotions, accolades, Facebook fame, and relationships

But none can soothe the soul like the person staring back at us.

The only way then—

is the way-

Courageously walk through the tangled mess of shadows that represent our insecurities, doubt and ugliness-our dramatic personalities, our imperfect gait, our artistic insights, our sensitivities, our quirkiness.

They may not have loved it about you.

They may have tried to quell it in you.

But it is the ticket to your freedom so LET IT SCREAM, DANCE, AND FLY!

Release it.

Let it go.

Join us.

Be the one who is brave enough to fully live who you were born to be.

You deserve nothing less.

Release the Net

{Etsy print by CuriousPrintery}

{Etsy print by CuriousPrintery}

I have a net that seeks to capture every jumping fish in the ocean,

every balloon in the sky

of my mind.

“Just in case,” it thinks.

“I might need it for a rainy day.”

The things I need to pack,

the conversation I need to have,

the idea for an article I need to create,

the email I still need to compose.

I don’t want to forget.

I don’t want to lose it.

So I hold on desperate,

clutching every thought that floats on by.

With stillness,

through meditation,

I’m reminded to let go.

I release each thought and watch it sink

and disappear under tow

or wave as it flies beyond the sky.

I don’t need it, I realize.

What I have in this moment,

a breath,

a pause in thought,

a silence,

are necessities to be free.

Pack light

and you’ll find all the answers you truly need.

Let go

and you will allow space

for miracles, mysteries and meaning-making to unravel in your life.
