Breakin' Out

Hello My Friends!

How are we all doing? Did we survive the mayhem that is often the holidays?

We had Christmas dinner at our house, our tiny little cabin in the woods, for the first time ever.


And it was so much fun! We've used the excuse of a small house for so long, we hardly every have friends over. With the new year? That is going to change! I loved having friends and family here. It warmed my heart to no end.

And, speaking of heart... have you gotten into the rhythm of choosing your word for the year?

A word that emerges from your heart and sets the tone and your intentions for the coming 12 months?

Guess what mine is?

Wait, before I get into that, last year mine was Soar. And I felt like I indeed did SOAR! I let go of plans and goals and must do's and instead listened to my heart, flowed on the currents around me, trusted my intuition, and soared to new heights. With the added bonus of a brand new perspective (stirred from some deep place of remembering, ironically enough) to round out the year.

This year's word? It COULD have been last year's, but apparently it needs to be expanded this year. And I'm all for that.

It is LOVE.

Of course.

I have a feeling I'm going to LOVE this year. I just do!

And you know what else?

I feel like I'm reclaiming part of myself right now. A part of myself I didn't even realize was me.

The past dozen or so years I have been going in one direction, only to realize that I had left some of myself behind. So this year I will be focusing on integrating ALL of me into me. LOVING all of me.

Here's a sample ~


I put on my "fancy" clothes yesterday, for no other reason than it felt like something I wanted to do. It was so much fun! I had forgotten! You know what? I LOVE getting dressed up! Since I've moved to the country it's something I gave up, slipping on a pair of comfy jeans and calling it good. Or, in the day-to-day craziness of work, mom-hood, school schedules, etc. I just didn't have the energy to put into what I was wearing.

No more. This Chica is getting back into her fun fashionista clothes. Woot!!

Watch out 2012! It's gonna be a rockin' year!

SO glad to be doing this thing called Life with you all!

Love to you, and a happy FABULOUS new year as well!

Oh, and what's your word for 2012?
Share it with my, won't you?

No. 33

I have been given a gift.

One so unexpected.

So amazing.

A perspective.

Insight.

Reunion.

Love.

Actually, I started with Love.


I asked for clarity.


And was gifted with more than I could ever have imagined.


From here?

Deepening the journey for sure.

Sharing it with you here.

There is so much to share...

Creativity

Hello Friends.
How's the holiday season treating you?
Are you gearing up for some serious Solstice releasing and celebrating?
Have you remembered to take some quiet time for yourself?
How does your creativity fare in this season of opposites ~ Xmas/Holiday Madness vs. Dark Time/Go-Within Time of the year?

Over the past few weeks I've been painting here and there, it's slowed a bit, but creativity is being expressed. Quiet time is being taken. Even if just in little bits and pieces here and there.
Thank goodness.

Here's the latest...





They are all related somehow. How has not been revealed, but related they feel.

Deep work going on over here. Deep.

Deep.

Did I mention deep?

Very.

It's time.

Watch out 2012!

Grin.

Tell me your creativity stories, how's it going? Or your holiday ones. Or non-holiday ones.

Any story will do.

How are you?

Sending LOVE out to the stratosphere.

Choosing LOVE.

Happy Holidays.
