Making Change is my current season in life but I will tell you this: it is very uncomfortable; much like giving birth.
“Transition: The last part of active labor – when your cervix dilates from 8 to a full 10 centimeters – is called the transition period because it marks the shift to the second stage of labor. This is the most intense part of labor.” – The Stages of Labor, www.babycenter.com.
Most intense indeed.
I found a quote by Rumi that brought a little comfort to the idea of discomfort:
“Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.” – Rumi.
My transition: moving from fear to faith. Having faith in the god-given gift of artistic talent and motherhood and moving beyond the fear, the limited expression of my Self.
“I want you to internalize this: Anytime we allow anything to make us afraid, and we refuse to challenge our fear of that thing, then we can never be that man, or that woman, that God intended us to be. Fear will not allow you to be yourself!” – Farrakhan.
So I’m off to continue the process of deconstructing me and coming into the full expansive expression of my Self: professional artist, patient mother, attentive wife and spirit being. I can Be Do Have anything I imagine. And my imagining is as wide and as great as the Universe, for the Universe is my Creator and we are One.
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein.
