Here……

“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.” ~Unknown

I have been thinking a lot…..if you know me you will not doubt this. Oft times I get overwhelmed and anxious even without knowing specifically why; the words, they do not come and I feel inarticulate and silly and vulnerable. The smallest of things can send me into a panic. I do not like feeling this way, Sam I am, I do not like it one bit. I am trying to calm my mind so I can make room for the real, the here, so it does not pass me by in a frenzied mess. One way I am doing this is through a fabulous online class hosted by Liz Lamoreux  called Create Space. I already feel calmer and more at peace than when I first started the class.

I am trying to embrace my story, lean in, live my poem and remember that I must honor where I am on my journey, let it empower me and motivate positive change that will inspire the creativity and soul-fullness that I want to carry within and share with others.

Another artist I am fortunate enough to be taking a class from in the upcoming months,  Jenni Horne, penned a lovely, heartfelt blog post and urged her readers to share more of their truth. I get so caught up in details and life and worries and shoulds and maybes but I know my truth is here. It is in the becoming. xo

  1. Lovely post Renee! It is good that you recognize what you need to do for yourself. Take as much time as you need and you will come out of this stronger, wiser and more confident. I am sure of it! Hugs and good luck on your soulful journey! Linda K.

  2. I can totally relate, Renee! Reading your post made me realize I’m not alone. It’s such a struggle to live in the moment. Glad you found the course and that post to help you find the calm within and the path to discovering your own truth.

    In the darkness we do find the light and learn that it was inside us all along. Love and big hugs to you.

  3. I too hate that feeling…just can’t settle in…feels like somehow we aren’t where we are supposed to be – yet it IS right we are supposed to be for reasons we don’t get now but one day will!! glad you are finding ways to calm yourself.

  4. Good for you for taking quiet time, Renee. I do it so infrequently these days. Life is a whirlwind, and sometimes they blur into each other. I keep saying one of these days, yet I feel I just don’t all that many left. I am so torn between doing and being…

  5. Hmmmm….seems like in addition to artist, you have quite the poet/writer in you, Renee. Has anyone ever told you that? I enjoyed this post, like I said–poetic.

  6. Thanks for sharing your soul, Renee, and the links! I especially love the “No U Turn” sign…it was meant to be that I found that today, I think….I always tell my hubbie, when I am staring at the clouds, “Don’t think I’m not doing anything! There’s more getting done that counts inside my head than what my busy hands could impart.” Being busy is not doing, and it is not “be-ing” either. Doing while being is GOOD stuff. Great post. Thanks for helping me find my epiphany today!
