After a big day in the office, I have retired to kym’s house for a glass of wine and some idol action!Â
ahhh, anyways my Oprah subscription arrived in perfect timing yesterday to inspire this tired creative soul.Â
This poem stopped me in my tracks.Â
I will not die an unlived lifeÂ
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.Â
I choose to inhabit my days,Â
to allow my living to open me,Â
to make me less afraid, more accessibleÂ
to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing,Â
a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance,Â
to live so that which came to me as a seed goes to the next as a blossom,Â
and that which came to me as a blossom, goes on as fruit. (Dawna Markova)Â
I love to live my life with a bigger perspective. I want to live with the understanding that ‘we were all destined to nourish and grow that which is given.’ I long to be someone who leaves an imprint where I have tramped, to care for and bring life to all parts of my world.Â
I long to live without fear, nourishing the souls of all that come accross my path, not just some.Â
I want to be more accessible as a person, so that I can live beyond myself.Â
Despite the pain, to be discontent unless I am growing!Â

Each day is a gift to be lived. This quote reminds me that I can’t afford to waste a minute of my day. To live-that is the great adventure.
Living has to be done in the everyday. Today I’ve been to the gym, done some washing, plan to do grocery shopping, attend a Parent Support Group at school, take my boy to soccer and while he’s there go for a long walk by the river with the dog.
Then, come home and have dinner with the family. Maybe do some reading/writing after dinner or watch CSI.
What will be my adventure today? How will i live the gift of this day when there is so much ‘everyday’ crowding my time?
I guess I’m just going to make sure that in the midst of this that I take time to dream, plan and do something-maybe just walking by the river will bring some inspiration for my writing today. Maybe I’ll get to talk to someone at soccer and be inspired-who knows?
Just looking for the inspiration-the moments of adventure will add some spice to my day.
Reading this blog has already inspired me to write! Let the adventure begin! Elaine
I love you elaine.
Believin your day is amazing!
