Be. Free. Be. Me.

I'm finding lately that, for me, the ultimate freedom is feeling free to just be me. When I'm able to find that internal peace, my step is lighter, the sun is brighter and my soul is so much happier.
This is my life quest.
To just be me.

be. free.   image by me
"Everyday I wake up, humming a song,
but I don't need to run around, I just stay home.
And sing a little love song,
my love, to myself
If there's something that you want to hear
you can sing it yourself."
song lyrics from Everything is Free by Gillian Welch

growing my wings

image by me

underneath the fear
i'm a mess
above the fear
i hold on hope

underneath the fear
i'm dependent
above the fear
i have freedom

underneath the fear
i sit silent
breathing in life
above the fear
i rise
my wings grow

new beginnings

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style" ~Maya Angelou

I love the chance to begin again. Start fresh and look at things with a new perspective. I wonder why I don't do it more often. Once a year just doesn't seem like enough. But, I will cease the opportunity now, with the new year beginning to clear the slate, forgive all my past inadequacies and start fresh with open eyes and an open heart and begin my journey to live a life where I "thrive"!

Thrive: grow strongly and vigorously. 2. to do well; prosper

Synonyms: Advance,arrive,bloom,blossom,boom,burgeon,develop,flourish,grow,progress,prosper

With all the love in my heart, I hope that you truly thrive this year!
