Leap

This is my first official post on this blog, and after weeks and weeks of pulling ideas from my heart, organizing them through my mind, and finally, finally, offering them out into the world, I feel…terrified.

I feel terrified because it doesn’t feel quite ‘finished’ yet.

But that’s just it; creative work is never ‘finished’.

Creativity is always moving, shifting and evolving, so if you’re waiting for some magic moment when you can grab it and say that it is finished; ready; perfect…well, I don’t think it ever happens—not completely anyway.

I think when it comes to creative work; the best you can hope for is ‘enough’. It’s enough. It’s done enough. Good enough. And if you can catch yourself in that space, you had better take the leap before the moment is gone; before the courage to share it slips through your fingers.

How much of your creative work has never been seen by anyone else? And since art is in the eye of the beholder, who’s to say that your work isn’t already perfect to somebody else? Once you offer your creativity out into the world, it doesn’t belong to you anymore anyway. It belongs to everyone, and anyone who lays their eyes upon it gets to own a part of it as they interpret it in their own way.

So if you’re sitting on some creative work or ideas, I encourage you to take the leap. Let it go, and let it be whatever it is meant to be to everyone else.

And here’s the best part: when you release your creative work, you create space for more; and the more it flows through you, the more pure it becomes, and what you hold in your heart will manifest more closely to what you had envisioned it to be.

Don’t look, just jump.

Take the leap.

Welcome!

Dear brilliant, beautiful, you: Thank you. Thank you for coming here. Thank you for following your hunch, or your heart, or accidentally clicking on the wrong link as you stumbled into this space… whatever the case may be…I’m glad you’re here.

Let me tell you why.

Because the world needs you. I need you. YOU need you.

This space is about listening to your heart, getting clear about what you want, calling back your power, and channeling your energy toward YOUR true calling. Yes, you have a purpose, a path, a true calling; it’s why you’re here. And it’s kind of a big deal because your true calling fills a void that the entire world aches for, and you are the only one who can fill it. I know that might sound sort of mysterious and magical, and maybe a little bit crazy, but it’s true. It’s true for you and it’s true for every single person on the planet.

Okay, now what? So, you’ve got this ‘true calling,’ and maybe you know exactly what it is; maybe you have a vague idea, or maybe you don’t have a clue. That’s okay. You’re here because you’re ready to find out. It’s important for you to know that your purpose isn’t something you have to go out and search for, because its already part of you—it’s just waiting to be discovered. What I’m sharing here will just help you recognize it, call it up from inside of you, and give you the courage to share it with the world.

I hope you’ll stick around; scroll down for my most recent posts, or peruse the site for ways to stay connected to yourself and the gifts you have to offer.
