[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Creativity keeps the world alive

creativity keeps the world alive, yet, everyday we are asked to be ashamed
of honoring it, wanting to live our lives as artists. I've carried the
shame of being a 'creative' since i came to the planet; have been asked to
be something different, more, less my whole life. thank spirit, my wisdom
is deeper than my shame, and i listened to who i was. i want to say to all
the creatives who have been taught to believe who you are is not enough for
this world, taught that a life of art will amount to nothing, know that who
we are, and what we do is life. when we create, we are creating the world.
remember this, and commit." -- Nayyirah Waheed

Yesterday the book store called me for a meeting, I love them, they are
super duper lovely! I thought it was good timing as the book is due out
soon and I want to do a few events there as well But to my surprise, they presented me with a cheque! I tell you, I was
happy as ever, not in my wildest dreams I ever thought that this journey
would take me to all the places that I have been, good and not so good, but
I know it's all good!

So just thought I would share that to say, do it, do the thing you feel you
need to do and let it go! The Universe got ya! Peace
