The Soul On Paper!

Open Book with WisteriaPity Parties can sometimes get your creative juices flowing, somewhere between feeling sorry for yourself and reflections on the past creativity is born as your soul pours itself onto paper. Written between selfish madness and thinking about the way forward.

The Arrow…….
Faded in discord;
Spirit broken;

Seedlings of Reality


“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”~ James Allan

When we start on our journey of self discovery, the first line of attack comes from within. Many dreams were killed long before they had the opportunity to see the light of day, many goals were sent to the cutting room floor without even making it to the final script. We are our own worst enemy, we have self doubt, we allow fear to stop us in our tracks, we tell ourselves we’re not good enough, not smart enough and we allow ourselves to die FULL. Full of ideas, knowledge, wisdom, inventions, skills and talents that was entrusted in us to make this world a better place to leave for our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews. 

What are you filled with? If you were to die today, what talents or skills will be buried with you? What invention will they lay to rest with you?
