The Truth Is.. Soul Musings

beauty

Hey Wonderful Souls!

Sometimes when I am writing and resisting I will start with the word “Truth” or “The Truth is” it has a way of helping me to peel back some of the layers.

The Truth is..

 

 

Sometimes I just don’t know

 

Sometimes I do know but a part of me is not ready (but when will it ever be, “it” can keep us so “Safe” that we are not even fully engaging with our own lives.

 

 

The Truth is…

 

 

I am ready and scared shitless all in the same breath

 

Sometimes in these moments  fear gets the upper hand and sometimes courage does, I am learning (oh so very slowly) to give myself grace when it’s the fear “winning”

 

 

The Truth is…

 

 

I am (as many of us are I bet) a person full of contradictions that sometimes totally make sense to me and other times confuse me.

 

 

The Truth is…

 

 

There is that part of me that doesn’t know, I am really not all that patient with it so much of the time, I want to get the big ah ha that will finally propel me into my dreams (like now would be good thanks!)

 

 

The Truth is…

 

 

I feel it on the tip of  my soul ready to burst through, yet needing to slow down and listen to allow it do so in its way and time (That is hard for this instant gratification loving gal!)

 

 

The Truth is…

 

 

I sometimes use the “I don’t know” as a way to avoid what I do know but am uncomfortable doing, speaking, owning.

 

 

The Truth is..

 

 

So much of what I seek is right there in front of me or within me, I am just expecting (or wishing) it would look different. (This is like having a clenched fist- you know the kind where your nails are digging into your flesh- and wondering why the person you love will not hold your hand)

 

 

The Truth is…

I sometimes think I forgot how to dream big and other times realize that A) Just because my dreams may not look like someone else it doesn’t mean it’s not big to me B) I do dream big, I just have allowed myself to keep shoving them down because they seemed so out of reach (this is what I refer to as declaring defeat before I even start, must stop doing that!)

The Truth is…

It’s  a Journey, full of so many layers, sometimes we are peeling these layers back or away other times it feels like these layers are piled on 🙂 Whatever it is, and sometimes it will be be both at once, it’s all perfectly imperfect, and beautiful and part of the process.

What if I… Journal Prompt

IMG_9954

Hey Beautiful Souls!

For me, more often than not the prompts come from a place of where i happen to be. So you can often tell where I am in my head space by what the prompts are about. This week I have been thinking about how I show up in life and what ifs.. Then in my journal I had pasted a headline from a magazine that read “What if I actually”? (and this is the prompt!) 

This was my prompt to get me started on thinking of so many things.. I am especially introspective as my Birthday is coming up this week. Here are some things that came up for me…

What if I actually..

Lived my 37th year more boldly? What if I believed in my own truth, dreams and strength? What if I showed up as my more and more in every way everyday… What if I actually found a way instead of an excuse to lean or leap into my dreams?

There was more, but this was the core of it and it’s still stirring around in my head ..What if I actually lived this, owned this and showed up for myself and for my gifts.. what if?

The Gifts of this year… Journal Prompt

IMG_8897

Hello Inspiring Souls!

As many of use continue to reflect the year coming to a close and the year ahead lets take a little time to look at the gifts of this last year.. Last weeks journal prompt was asking what gifts you were going to give yourself that day (a great question to ask yourself any day any time of the year)

This week I encourage you to look at the gifts this year has brought. From healing, joy, creativity, inspiration and anything else that feels like a gift to you.

A few of mine would be:

-Connection

-Community

-Light

-Healing

-Clarity

May you find many gifts and may the year ahead bring you many gifts as well

Collage-Creative Prompt

Hey Creative Souls!

Lets do a collage! This can be images and words that inspire you, it can be themed for example: Visual goals for the month, for a project, your health, relationship, just things that inspire you, an event etc..It can be all words, all images or a mix of both.

Here is what to gather:

1-Surface, inside of a journal, posterboard, file folder or piece of plain paper, cover of a journal etc..

2-Glue stick

3-Scissors

4-Magazines, words images etc (junk mail, your photos all of that can work too!)

5-Time and an open mind!

Gather some words and or images that fit with the theme that you are doing, I like to gather a bunch and then see how they look arranged different ways on my surface I rarely (but do sometimes) just start gluing. But if that is what you want to do, it’s good so you won’t over think it too much and just have fun!

I of course would love it if you shared a picture of yours with me! The above images is one I did in my visual journal.I actually started to do random gluing, but I like the way it turned out!

Trusting the path.. Journal Prompt…

I am trying something a bit different this week, a journal prompt inspired by a quote and a bit of food for thought…

The more intensely that we feel about and idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment. –Earl Nightingale

Do you find yourself trusting the path? Or do you find yourself resisting it, mainly based out of fear of the unknown? Where can you just allow yourself to trust and follow that path ?

I find myself doing both, trusting and resisting.. When I resist, I am able to bring myself back to that place of trust faster than I used to be able to. But I still feel myself resisting more than I would like to..

I can trust that path by giving into my inspiration, intuition and courage

** Note** For this art journal entry, I used a magazine image, masking tape and pen..

How about you?

Have an Inspired, Creative and Empowered day..
