Friday Affirmations — Tell

Tell your story —



Since I started the Keeping it Simple projects the impetus for my creativity has become crystalized by these three simple, emphasis simple, words — tell your story — not big and bold shouting it out but following the meandering ideas that creep into your heart and mind at the edge of sleep just before you wake.  That surprise of, glimpse fleeting, winged moments that open as you rise.  The recognition of happiness that comes from creating with what’s at hand.  Nothing complicated, everything elemental. I have some cognitive grasp of where this might go, but mostly I am leaving it open for the universe to inform my heart and allow myself to be pulled wherever the journey might lead.  So as we celebrate the solstice today, shortest, darkest, deepest longing day of the year, I am crawling inside to listen to the voices of my higher self and will see you all in the New Year.  Blessings, joy and merriment until we greet with new eyes in 2013.



  1. I hope the universe guides you to where you want to be….
