well well, what have we here?
A beautiful start to a beautiful year.
I do believe with all my heart that there is only one direction
life can go, and that the nature of the universe is to be better and better all
the time. There is no limit to how happy we can be. No need to hold
back for fear that we're going to use all of it up, or hit the peak of the hill
just to roll down the other side to our bored and unhappy demise. Sometimes
I worry that I'm running out. Sometimes I worry that the world is running
out. Of what? Of resources, of creativity, of new ideas, of general
Good Things. For every good song that is written that's one less good song
in the pot. For every creative endeavor that's one less thing that can be
discovered. Isn't it?
I spent much of last
year working my way out of that mindset. And thank God, 'cause it sure was
a heavy thing to carry. I began to feel a bit ashamed that I would ever accuse
the Universe of being anything less than infinite. I began to feel tremendously
excited and humbled to think of how many things people think of to create and then
never do. What if? What if everybody created everything they ever
dreamed of creating? That is what joyfully calls me into this
I vow this year to be kinder to myself.
vow to judge less and give more.
I vow to do more of what I love and less
of what I don't.
I vow to let go of everything, and know I cannot keep something
that was never meant to stay.
I vow to breathe.
I vow to look in the mirror
often and say, "Shawnee, you can do it. And Shawnee, I love you."
vow to live more and hesitate less.
I vow to be happier than I've ever been.
since I can't figure out how to attach any photos on here for you, I'll send you
to this one:
Do not be afraid....Fly!
Love and Much Thanks,
