Resolution

I wonder 
how many 
decisions 
we make 
in a day...
So many little choices that define our lives by their cumulative effect
Yet a resolution is different
With firm resolve, you decide who you are, with purpose and intention and you never look back. 
The New Year is a chance to decide who you are. 
You can decide who you are right now and forevermore. 

I resolved to write every day last year
It didn't matter what it was or how much
Even a few words counted
I formed a habit and thus became a writer. 

There is something magical about doing something every day. Writing every day has awakened a flow in me. 
There is a rhythm to life, linking together the days, like a needle pulling through thread, like weaving a tapestry. 
It’s like the consistency of it – the habit, the practice, the routine – draws out the art. 

I take what the universe gives me and turn it out onto the page
Whether it's silly, serious, mundane or transcendent, it all goes on the page. 
The act of writing is what matters - being in that flow
The creative process is a conversation with the universe that never ends. 

I always thought of art as free-flowing and spontaneous, yet now I see it’s a discipline. 
It’s only in doing it that the expression can happen. 
We can think we are artistic, however, until we are in the act of creating, we are just observing, contemplating. 

Creation is active. 

The synthesis and the expression happens only in the doing. 
To think of the days, weeks, months and years that went by when I didn’t write. All that lost creativity. 
That’s ok because this is now. All the prior moments brought me here.

I no longer wait for inspiration. I write to get inspired. 
I write because I am a writer. 
I am a writer because I write.

I am a wife, mother of three, beautiful children, an energy healer and a spiritual development coach. I have largely discovered my sense of spirituality through motherhood and also through a form of energy healing called Marconics. I believe that the feminine divine is being called to rise up at this time to bring more balance to the planet and everyone on it. I enjoy writing, traveling, dancing, reading and hanging out with family and friends.
