Spend time in nature 'they' say and now I can only wholeheartedly agree.
Now I live amongst it and it most assuredly calms my mind, soothes my soul and feeds my creativity.
I am in love with this place and I feel like it loves me back.
It's been a big year, actually it's been a big decade…to tell you the truth its been a big life!
I'm writing a book about it, I have been writing it for a while…It's a challenge, trying to make sense of experiences that just didn't make sense. The most important thing to me is that I share the love and the lessons. I want people to know that even though I have been through so many challenges I am always swimming towards the light and that there is an out the other side of everything. One way or another there is an out the other side…So I choose to empower myself and those around me to define that for themselves…and yes it can be messy and painful, it certainly is if you come form a childhood of abuse and have experienced trauma in your life.
Like Friedrich Nietzsche said—
'You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.'
Creativity has set me free. It has helped me to find my voice and continues to be a channel for growth, inspiration and freedom. I'd be lost without it, I love to get lost in it and I always find my way into the deeper parts of me. I invite you all to MAKE the time to find your creative expression, whatever it is that speaks to you and allow it room to breathe and move through you and out into the world.
Creativity has an energy that when suppressed shows up in a multitude of ways, it comes out sideways, spills out in all kinds of behaviours, shows up in illness and depression. When expressed it has the power to enlighten, inspire and free not only us but those around us.
