PHOTO CREDIT — That lovely piece of art above is by an artist that I am just crazy about – Lori Portka. I can’t believe I do not actually have any of her prints on my walls. I must change that. I do buy her calendar every year and have them prominent in my home. Check her out.
“Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be.” ~Alan Watts
This quote is so powerful for me and was instrumental in my own wake up call a few years ago when I realized I was playing an active role in helping someone else achieve their dreams and, as a result, putting myself last. Dead last.
We box ourselves in too much.
We accept too much of what is expected of us that we forget how to let our authentic selves rise up to the occasion.
We got this.
We do what everyone else thinks we should do.
We think what others think.
This week, I want to focus on shedding old, preconceived notions about ourselves and just walk into who we already are. There’s a great world inside of us just waiting to be cracked open and released — yes, even while we change sheets and fold laundry and while working a day job or a night job. Even while nursing in the middle of the night.
These dreams inside of us are waiting to see the light of day.
Who will you wake up to be?
What do you already know that is inside of you?
Photo Challenge: Take a photo of something in your home that really speaks to that person inside of you that you haven’t been able to set free — perhaps a piece of artwork that represents being an artist, or a pen if you want to write more or a bowl for pottery inspiration. Who are you? Wake up to that beautiful person.
FINAL WEEK — This is it! We’re one week away from our great, big and totally fun adventure. Join in!
