That man standing on his head is much older than you think. My guess is that he is in his late 50s. Those are his sons.
There was no net.
It was windy.
I almost had a heart attack.
(and I was only watching.)

And yet, when I witness someone succeeding at being themselves, fully expressing their capabilities I feel lit on fire, inspired.
And then the fear sets in.
Followed by self-doubt. Self-hate.
Which to me, translates into distrust of all that is beautiful and sacred in our multi-dimensional Creative World.

When did my unabashed Trust in the process of Infinite Unfolding give way to fear? (I can’t remember.)
When did I start believing that emotional safety felt better than the true freedom of authenticity? (Because it doesn’t.)
It doesn’t really matter. What matters is the realization that I’m afraid. The realization that I’ve been using Fear as a major guiding factor on my creative journey.
This is where it gets exciting. I’ve made a proclamation.
I DON’T WANT FEAR TO GUIDE MY LIFE.
I want to unabashedly move forward– guided by Creative Spark and Centered Intuition. I want to trust again. I want to trust that my needs will be met as I walk towards my highest vision of what is possible this lifetime.

Every New Years, a group of my favorite women on the planet each choose a Word to guide their year. It reflects the essence of how we want our year to unfold. They are all wildly different, but similar in that they evoke emotions of Spirit, Creativity and Authenticity.
This year my word is LAUNCH.
You know LAUNCH. You pull back and gather your information, resources and energy. You aim your focus. (And then perhaps the scariest part,) You Let Go.
I Let Go and I trust that through the very act of presenting myself to the world, I will be changed and I trust that this change will be for my greater good. (affirmation adapted from Carol Bridges)
I’m working on ideas I’ve had for a very long time and finally, finally they are gelling together, making sense, gathering power and I do believe that this year I will LAUNCH! (and SOAR!)
