Repainting my life

2015-09-13 17.14.07

Sitting before me is the canvas of my life.

Next to me sitting, waiting (sometimes) patiently are the brushes, paints, pastels, charcoals and implements with which I can choose to repaint my dream.

With the closing of one door, 3 others open before me. Which one do I choose?

I can hear Tori Amos sing (as if only to me), “It’s your choice, babe.”

Yes, it’s my choice. So I ask myself, “What do I want this time?” Where do I want to go? What do I want to create?

Sometimes the hardest part of any journey is the first step. I find that the first mark on the canvas, pointing my toes in the direction of my dream, is the hardest to make.

I seem to be stuck on the question, wondering, what will I paint this time?

So now I ask you, “What do you see when you look at your dream? What would you change, repaint, remove or add?”

Some inspiring quotes:

Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself. – Octavia E. Butler

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman

You have to dream before your dreams can come true. – A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. – Edgar Allan Poe

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. – T. E. Lawrence

May you find your dream and paint it, fearlessly recreating it at your own whim.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.
