i might be cheating a bit here with spc (because it’s not a self portrait), but this photo andrea shot seems to capture the theme of shine.

shine…

myriam says i’m much more sassier in person than i am here on this blog. jen lemen says the same thing. and i believe jen gray did a double take when she saw me shaking my booty in our cabin’s dining room one evening. the funny thing is that i believe the very same thing about many people i meet. to see and meet our friends outside of blogworld is to witness their light, their aliveness, their shine. i love how our essence comes thru in our blogs, but i especially love how it comes thru in person, in flesh – and it happens just about every time i meet a new friend.

the truth is is that i’m so nervous about squam. as much as i thrive on meeting others and the frenetic energy of creating connections, i feel another growth spurt coming on as mati and i prepare for leading the discussion on thursday nite. i want it to be meaningful. and full. and light. and informative. i want it to have heart. and stories. and questions answered. i want everyone who shares that evening with us to walk away feeling like their creative dreams are entirely real + possible. i want the evening to shine. i really do. as the nerves settle in about speaking and leading, i’m trying to remind myself that all we ever really have is our story. that our stories are powerful tools. that it’s really just one big conversation we’re having together about dream living, dream making, dream doing. because our stories are our pathways to that spark of possibility we all carry around. our stories are our shine.

shine on.

oh, and guess what??? all 500 of the books arrived at my doorstep. and guess what else? they’re ALL shipping out tomorrow (domestic + international). can i just say hallelujah? and an amen? and a thank you, world?

Hi friends! I've been quiet over here. I think I've been relishing the spaciousness that has come with this new season of life (moving to a small town, getting off of social media, simplifying life and business), and just giving myself lots of permission to settle in...
