During the Creative Process
Sit and feast on your life. ~Derek Walcott
Those are the first words to Oprah’s new book just out, What I Know for Sure.
Words that followed?
……you can either waltz boldly onto the stage of life and live the way you know your spirit is nudging you to, or you can sit quietly by the wall, receding into the shadows of fear and self doubt. You have the choice this very moment—-the only moment you have for certain. I hope you aren’t so wrapped up in nonessential stuff that you forget to really enjoy yourself—because this moment is about to be over.
This moment being our lives and the present moment—and boy do we get how quickly it is all passing!
I’ve been a busy little girl.
I’ve just returned from a week-end with Oprah.
No, not like me and her hanging out at her place eatin’ chips and salsa in our PJ’s (although I’ve got my PJ’s on standby if she calls 😉
More like me, my sis and 18 thousand other peeps hanging out together in DC at The Life You Want event 🙂
We heard inspiring words from Oprah herself, Mark Nepo (The Book of Awakening) , Elizbeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) and more.
We made journals
And shopped for one good book (What I Know for Sure) to giveaway here on my site 🙂 (It’s a first edition–just get your name in the hat below!)
We also put together a little movie detailing our adventure if you dare/care to watch 😉
Inspiration and staying inspired is vital for each of us. It is what keeps hope flowing, creative juices juicy and our lights shining brighter.
Just like we try to eat well to take care of our bodies, we gotta make sure we are not “starving” ourselves of the things that give us JOY and inspire our hearts and minds.
What inspiration can you feed yourself today?
