As with life, transformation and growth are necessary parts of existence. So it was time to transform the look of this site. It has been over a year since the inception of this website and as a life coach transformation is part of our journey. Taking time to create a new look and color revitalized this site, in preparation for what is to come next. Creativity allows us to be open and ready for what life has to bring. and brings a breath of fresh air.
In our daily life it is important to take a different road, read new books, learn new ideas, grow, experiment, network, get out of our comfort zones. It is also important to get up and move – walk, dance, run, stretch. Adding in time for meditation brings a sense of peace as well. This makes life interesting and allows our brains to expand through the creation of new synaptic connections.
Just like water we too can be in flow and shine as we transform our lives. Sometimes tragedies or even constant worry can make people hard and unbending. Aging has a way of doing the same for many people as well. Let’s not allow this to happen in your life.
Remember we are all light-beings and can let our light shine at any time along our journey. Just as the light glistens in this piece of melting ice, you too can reflect your inner light out to the world.
In case you haven’t heard, science has discovered a flash of light that occurs at the moment of conception. Yes, we are truly light-beings:
In my own life shining my light and transformation are allowing me to awaken every morning in a state of gratitude. Everyday I wake knowing that I will learning something new, take a different road, visit a new location, read at least a chapter in new book or check out a new website.
Blogging was new to me over a year ago. I had no idea how to set up a website but was intrigued after viewing my daughter’s site. I watched a YouTube video, read a couple of books, and then took the plunge. I purchased domain names from GoDaddy then discovered that I didn’t need them on WordPress however I am still glad that they were purchased. Then after drawing some dragonflies and playing with words – Spirit of Dragonflies was born. A little more creativity with words and Guide to Awakening Your Inner Self: Begin Your Creative Journey Today was ready to go. Since that time I have learned to add widgets and tags, post weekly, became part of the The Daily Post photo challenge. Now that I have a quality camera I am sure you have noticed some changes in my photography although using my cell phone as a camera was very easy. I have taken classes at Apple to learn how to categorize photos, create iMovies, music on Garageband, and a presentation on Keynote. The goal being to upload an iMovie on this site with my own music.
Looking behind the lens of the camera has opened my eyes to a new perspective of the environment – micro and macro. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world. You may have noticed the change over the last year. Life is a canvas to create the world you want to see.
So that brings me to you and your own creative journey. Is there anything that you have learned or expanded on over this last year? If you have been following my post you might remember that jewelry making has also been part of my creative journey. Have you been finding time for writing, drawing, dancing, singing, exercise, jewelry making, photography, or other endeavors? If not, what’s holding you back?
If you say “I don’t have time. I don’t know how. I can’t . . . I shouldn’t . . .” Then please leave me a message or complete the form below. We can discuss how you can become the creative person you are meant to be and bring some excitement and joy into your life. If you have read my Meet Sandy post you know that I was a single, working Mom of three. Having children does not have to be an excuse for holding you back from creating the life you dream of, neither does working. Life is short and we are only given a certain amount of time to share our gifts with the world. Your children will be better for your creativity and happiness.
Remember, learning something new, being creative, and enjoying life bring not only happiness but increase your health and over all well-being. I hope to hear from you.
Love and Light!
