let passion flow

i have recently become more in tune with my deeper senses. i also have enjoyed learning to enjoy and share who i really am rather than mold myself to be something i believe others want me to be. during these recent "revelations," i have realized how deeply i feel about pretty much everything i encounter in life. it really is a wonderful to let the love, intensity, curiosity and passion flow through me. i can feel it physically and mentally.

it's interesting to me that i have not realized this before now, but i do believe certain situations or circumstances reveal themselves to you at certain times in your life for a reason. though my life, i feel, is filled with amazing explorations, there can be downfalls to this "gift" as well (but pale in comparison to the positives). For instance, i have been known to be quite sensitive to myself and others. i've had to learn whether i'm feeling my own emotions or those of my present company and to set up boundaries of when i let myself tune into others and who i let "tune in" to me. i'm just starting to learn this part, but find it quite intriguing.

don't be afraid of the intensity of life, emotion and passion. don't be afraid to show your joy or fears or disdain with what you encounter. and most of all, don't be afraid to be yourself, this is something you can do better than any other (-anonymous)

love, passion and joy to you all

see with an eye that feels, feel with a hand that sees

seriously, 2 months? ridiculous, no excuses (though i have a million) anywho, a few things i'm totally stoked about: madmen season finale was the BEST, i am in love with walmart's grape flavored knock off of crystal light, going to utah this week for business (but personally super excited to see mountains like i've never seen), my friend amie fixing my bathroom painting and - once again - cha winter.

inspiring activity challenge: find something dirty, or "ugly" or scummy and find something beautiful in it, look at it with a new set of eyes. freshen your point of view.

find something that makes you happy or leaves you with a sense of accomplishment and pride (hopefully this will then make you happy). i'm mainly talking about work - which may take longer than you'd like and not give a sense of immediate gratification, but then how incredibly gratifying will it be when you actually find it??? look hard, work hard and NEVER settle for anything less than what you want. if contentment is your want, that's just dandy. if exuberant elation is your goal(like mine) than go for it!

what you want is ripe for the picking, you simply need to reach out and grab it
