#ArtLetsThingsOut Challenge

IMG_1374

Above is a poem I wrote during a poetry challenge where I wrote 108 poems in a month for a fundraiser.

It was a difficult and incredible experience. Because I had to do so many to do, I couldn’t wait for inspiration and I had to let out whatever was inside of me. It was cathartic.

I was going through a break up at the time. I could express all of my emotions and I felt better.

So I’m doing it again and you’re invited to join me this time! November 13th – 27th you’ll create 50 pieces of art in 14 days.

What Marianne Williamson Can Teach You About Making Money

Practical and Mindset - Financial Flow

Marianne was in the bathtub when she got the call. It was back when we all had physical answering machines so she could hear the message come in. “Oh, Marianne, you’ve done it again. You know, I like this one even better. I’d love to have you on the show.” The voice was unmistakable. It was Oprah Winfrey.

Marianne Williamson’s heart dropped. Her face flushed.

Why you need to stop using the word criminal…

Untitled design.jpgLast weekend, I was doing some readings for school and came across this passage,

Take a spiritually underdeveloped person, for example, a criminal. Such a person will use self-will in a very obvious way to serve his immediate seeming advantages, disregarding all laws—spiritual as well as human.

And I felt my blood begin to boil.

What Strengths were You Born with?

Jenny sat at the back of the bus, her nose buried in her Nancy Drew book. She was a bit of an ackward kid and didn’t fit in with the other girls. She liked to play while rough while they pretended to bake and played with dolls.

She loved this book and was reading furiously. A young woman in the book was taken hostage and suddenly Jenny thought, “What if that happened to me?” She looked over her shoulder and stared at the car behind the bus craning her neck to get a look at the driver. It was a woman in frumpy dress and pearl. “Not someone who would take a hostage,” Jenny thought..

She looked around at the other kids on the bus and thought, “These guys wouldn’t have a clue about how to take a hostage.” But then the bus driver, Sam, caught her eye. He was wearing jeans and a plaid shirt. He had a moustache. This was the kind of guy that could take a hostage…

Speak Up.

Bryn - Quetico

A friend is 40 minutes late for our coffee date but I give him a hug and act as if he is on time. A colleague doesn’t show up for a meeting we’ve had planned for a long time, but I shrug it off and reschedule. The internet install guy drags out a simple procedure that should take 20 minutes so that it takes over 3 hours, but I smile, make polite conversation and laugh at his jokes.

I have gotten good at acting as if everything is fine. I have gotten good at hiding my anger. I have gotten good at avoiding conflict at all costs.
