I feel like I am connecting with a long lost friend!!! Its been so long!
So Much has happened, time has moved by us and through us. We are all wiser for it.
If I could only share everything that has been happening, If I could only articulate it all, is words, on this page... I want to share everything, I want to scream it from the Mountain tops....
In a nut shell, this is just the beginning of what I want to say to you all!!!
1. I love you all
2. You are Beautiful
3. You are perfect just the way you are
4. Trust the process
5. Be gentle with yourself
6. Forgive yourself and forgive others
7. Believe in yourself
8. Honour yourself
9. Be grateful and humble
10. Please, please love yourself, you are a special unique brilliant being with beauty passion and LOVE!!!
I know that most of these concepts are written on pages in my site, but I truly want you all to know that this is the truth.
We are all soooooooo connected.
So, I am going to begin by revealing a little secret...
I nearly quit, I nearly threw in the towel. I decided to change it all, do something different. This summer was life transforming... I met some of the most inspiring people I have ever encountered, I opened up lots of cans of worms, I got rid of them, I hoola hooped, I became part of the landscape, I connected with the animal world in a way that I have never connected before.
I connected with myself in a way I have never before.
Then..... I became confused.
I didn't know what to do.. I felt afraid, excited, passionate, inspired...
I wanted to:
1. Start a traveling juice/raw food wagon for those of us who need to be nurtured on the road
2. Start a foundation for creative women, by creative women, sharing techniques, talents, skills and motivation
3. Make really great eye pillows
4. Move to New Zealand for a year
5. Launch a "Green Space" campaign network with Sarah Harmer and Rachel McAdams to raise funds and protect the green spaces around us.
6. Launch a coffee table book of Amazing Jewellery artist who create with soul and Beauty
7. Start a Red Tent Temple Movement in Georgetown
8. Move up north, grow my food, get chickens, cut firewood and have babies
hmmmmm. How many lives can one life? I AM a dreamer, and I have been known to make them come true... however, I sometimes feel very overwhelmed by all the options.
How does this relate with me nearly throwing in the towel?
I have worked my little fingers and self to the bone for the past 6 years to build nuture and keep Opal Wing Creations alive...
I have recently gone through a huge transformation which has left me eating mostly raw food and truly taking care of myself and listening to my body ( which should be a normal thing to do, however in this day and age, it can be a struggle!)
Within this transition, I decided to always be within my heart, stay true to myself, even if it meant letting go of things that are the hardest.
I started to wonder, of all the things that there are in the world to do... All the responsibilites we have as humans on this planet, how our planet is in crisis and needs some to love, honor and respect her.
We are part of her, and we need to begin with ourselves. There is no exception here. If we heal ourselves, we heal the planet.
Imagine the world is we all felt full of love, joy and gratitude..... it would be a different place!
SO, I started to question whether what I was doing and AM doing makes a big enough impact?
How am I really helping others?
So I threw it to the wind... I asked the universe to send me messages, of where I am meant to go, what I am meant to do, that I can know it in my heart enough to actually go after it, listen and follow...
The Response was CLEAR.
Weeks later, I find myself passionately drooling over the earth's beauty, colors and forms in stone.
Dreaming of little people in the forest dancing around, wearing pieces of the earth...
And then I realized.... It was like the light came back on, but brighter... more powerful than ever...
I AM DOING WHAT I AM MEANT TO BE DOING!
I AM FOLLOWING MY PASSION!
I AM GIVING BACK THROUGH SHARING THESE GIFTS!
I can still raise money for green organizations, I can travel and teach other women how to develope their own skills and offer jewellery making supplies and techniques....
I DON"T NEED TO THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER!!!
There's no need to throw it all away, I am just beginning!!!
I bet you weren't prepared to read a short book, I hope you are still here.
here are some photos of my summer, there are plenty photos and more short books to come, if I could only write it all in one night... If I could only spend the days that I want to with you all, maybe one day that will happen!
LOVE TO YOU ALL!!!
