A Leap of Faith

"There are many talented people who haven't fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it, or they were too cautious, and were unwilling to make the leap of faith." ~James Cameron


Inhale. Exhale. Pause.


Inhale. Exhale. Pause. Bigger Inhale. Bigger Exhale. 


And so we begin...


Over the last few months I have been receiving messages from my inner self telling me that there are shifts that need to be made, elements that need to be acknowledged and tapped into, a discipline that needs to begin.


There a few disciplines that need to begin in my world, though the one that I write of today is the discipline of creative writing. I know that somewhere in me I have a poem, an essay, maybe a book or two, or simply some kind of creative something that is asking to come out into the world. The inspiration to restart this BLOG comes from my heart's urges to get creative with words, to put them on paper (or the computer screen) and to share them with the world. 


The confidence to share what I write comes from a piece I recently submitted to Fort McMurray's NorthWord Magazine. It took me ages to decide whether or not to send it in and put my deepest most raw and wounded heart out there where everybody could see it. Where everybody would know that I too become weak and fall into despair. When I received the email earlier this month letting me know that it was going to be published in the next issue, I was both thrilled and excited. This meant that someone had read and actually liked what I had written. Not only did they like it but they also felt it was worthy of being in print. This was a huge boost to my confidence as writer and the extra something that I needed to help push me in this direction. 


And so here I am, ready to put my inner most thoughts and feelings in print. Like it or not. I make this promise to myself to be bold and courageous and even more so on those days when I feel small and weak. I intend to write of heart ache, heart joy, my own heart's thoughts and guidance. This newly resurrected BLOG features the best and truest part of me - my heart and my soul on a platter for you to enjoy.


And so it is!


Big Inhale. Big Exhale. Aaaaaahhhhhh! Yay!


Love and Light, 

Heather.
