Progress not perfection: I caught a sneak peek of this last night and oh man, did Amanda’s message hit home. Love, love, love.
We can cultivate the skill of seeking what’s right in a situation, or in ourselves. We can intentionally create our own supportive culture of family and friends where we see what’s already perfect instead of what needs tweaking. We can gaze upon our bodies with the soft eyes of adoration. We can give ourselves a break instead of pushing ever-harder. We can practice being kinder, and kinder, and kinder still.
Even now, decades later, every stretch holds that memory along with the scar tissue. The tightness of my body awakens feelings of not-enough, of broken dreams, of lack. For the longest time stretching has meant striving to narrow the gap between where I am and where I want to be, all the while steeping in that awareness of the enormous chasm between the two. But something’s changing.
Look around you–creativity is a precious commodity. Artists are at a HUGE advantage, but more than any other business, so many Artists have trouble realizing this. And it pisses me off.
Come from a place of love in your heart, in your business and tap into the intuitive person you are. Your passionate heart centered work guides you.
Look! Sunshine! (take & keep please)

So excited for Alisha! she’s kicked off her Kickstarter campaign for Blackberry: a magazine featuring African-American women writers and artists. I totally just backed this project.
Sometimes, we tell our stories to hear ourselves say what we need to say. And, sometimes we tell our stories in order to be heard. When we are heard, deeply heard, healing can happen.
