On a Lifelong Mission

We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be. ~Jane Austen

"Who am I? For what do I stand, and in what do I believe? What gifts do I have to give to the world?"

These, I believe, are questions that each and every single one of us struggles to answer throughout our lifetimes. The answers are not simple; no, they are infuriatingly complex, a deeply intertwined and un-understandable combination of what we are raised to think; what we learn about ourselves from others (true or otherwise); how we interact with the world and what we receive back from it; our experiences; and what we know to be true deep in our hearts.

It takes enormous courage and strength of will - as well as many a still, quiet moment - to not only listen to your heart, whispering softly of your deepest dreams and hopes -- but to follow unapologetically what we know is the right path for ourselves.

So. Who am I?

I am an artist, a dreamer, a philosopher, an explorer, a lover of humanity, and a child of nature. I am a lioness, a wild woman, a bohemian beauty! and I am full of possibility, dreams, hopes, ideas, and love.

I am perfection in my flaws and I am deeply, deeply loved by the Universe.

I am fighting for my Self and for my heart's dreams - a long, exhausting battle that will last a lifetime. But I am prepared and willing, and I will win!

Will you stand by my side and fight with me; fight for your Self and for your dreams?
