What is.

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

I am sitting in my office in England, thinking about the trip to the cottage that resulted in this picture. It is very early morning. I couldn't sleep, despite deep fatigue, so I got up and decided to get a little bit of work done. I can hear birds singing and sheep bleating, but other than that, it is very quiet.

I just wrote a whole post, and on the verge of hitting publish, I deleted it instead. It was another whiny, negative post that asked too many questions. I'm tired of making excuses and asking questions. I guess I got the message today after all:

"When you choose what is, your word becomes law in the universe." (117)

I have the acoustic version of Keisha White's "I Choose Life" in my head right now. If you can get hold of it, do listen, it's GOOD. In the meantime, here is the regular version. Put it on, turn it up, close your eyes and let it fill you up.

"It is an act of power to consciously choose your life. I do not mean to just choose parts of it (such as the parts you like or feel that you created), but to choose all of it - every bump, every dark night of the soul, every lie and falsehood, every fear... everything." - Denise Linn

Have a wonderful weekend.

P.S. I made art today!!! Inspired by this, and the tasks from yesterday I made art - but I can't get the scanner to work - you'll just have to trust me!

Oh Megg! How absolutely amazingly beautiful and inspiring this post this! That with one button, you chose life. :)

Thank you for adding video and Keisha White's song! It solidified everything I have been feeling and building up to!

I trust that your art is spectacular whether I can see it at this moment or not.

The power of your words. The power of this post, to me, is infinite. :)

Thank you♥

Megg, thank you so much for reminded me that the best thing we can do in life is be our own hero. Once we're strong enough, perhaps we can be heroes to others as well.

I'm so happy to hear you had a moment of clarity and that my words brought something important to you. Thank you so much for this! I am grateful for you too. May you enjoy every second of consciously choosing your life. And way to go on literally deleting the negativity from your life! I LOVE that!

An empowering post, Megg! And congratulations on making art! Maybe you can post it when you get your scanner working again.

love, light and peace,

What a powerful choice!

And yay you for making art!! In my heart I deeply believe that choosing to make art is choosing life.

Danette said...

Yes, choosing art is a beautiful choice.

Thank you for the song, and the inspiration.

i know exactly what you mean! i often write an entire post, only to delete it or save it as a draft because it is too 'woe is me' which often defeats the purpose of empowering myself!
i honestly feel this soul coaching journey came at {exactly} the right time (thanks jamie!) for myself and so many others. and
i would LOVE to get together for a soul coaching tea party! just reading your words and comments uplift me, i cannot imagine how time spent in your company would be! wow! are there any other coachees in the uk? i am in oxford... we must let this marinate for awhile and hopefully plans will follow!
