This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice. Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes. Because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
–Rumi

I am falling back in love with Rumi. Reminds me of the early days of being 20 something. When I spent time with my journal, my books, my spirit. I’m finding my way back to those pockets and it feels like home.

Be grateful for whatever comes. Because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. 

 Truth. I’m grateful for all of it. And I’m so back in love with Rumi.

XO! 

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

A creative heart/life update
