People say trust the process. What does that really mean? Does it mean creating a safe space to fail and learn? And if we don’t trust the process does that mean we don’t get the opportunity to learn and grow?

It means that you can’t control everything you can only plan, work and show up. So, the option you have is to, allow the flow of your life to unfold. Show up, exhale and be brave.

be brave!

Standing in the middle of the room – take a breath in and exhale, the new year is beginning. It seems like most of us have to be reminded to stand alignment because it’s easy to get off track and worn out. The new year is a great reminder to come back to yourself.

Be Brave!

This is in the end of the only kind of courage that is required of us: the courage to face the strangest the most unusual, the most inexplicable experiences that can meet us. Rainer Maria Rilke

hurt and hope by LL Griffin

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love. Rainer Maria RilkeLetters to a Young Poet

uncovering roots

Uncovering roots is a way of understanding what is underneath and what grounds us.

In grade school most kids will take a seed and use a paper towel in a glass jar and “plant” the seed and are able to watch the seed get roots. Another way to see roots is when some plants sprout roots if you don’t use cook them soon, like potatoes. But most of the time we don’t have the opportunity to observe roots because they’re in the ground and really not thought of much, until there is a problem.

These images were made in a recent workshop. My view and uncovering roots.

Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots Rumi
