Who are you . . .
underneath it all?
Under layers of years. Of fears. Under others' expectations, limitations (even your own).
What tenacious spirit cries out,
begging for you to listen?
Friends, I was so excited to invite Carly Mojica to our beloved Truth Tribe interview. She and I have brushed virtual elbows for a while now (I bet you remember her evocative responses in some of our Facebook discussions), and when it came time for our Tenacity issue . . . I knew the answer was Carly.
She is tenacity in action. Her creative dreams were buried for years, calling for her attention. After leaving the corporate world in 2010 to become a stay-at-home mom, Carly's sense of self underwent transformation.
That's when she discovered intuitive painting. Much more than a simple hobby, this creative and spiritual practice offered Carly room to breathe. Room to dream. Room to explore and expand her sense of self--including that as mother and wife, and beyond.
Phoenix soul, what do you hear underneath it all?
What creative practice can you employ to discover and nourish your inner self?
Perhaps you're overwhelmed or don't know where/how to begin. How about five minutes of scribbling your thoughts in a journal? (You could try a prompt like: "I yearn for . . ." "I love . . ." "I'm afraid that . . .") Or perhaps you could spend five minutes swirling color on paper (as simple as bright markers or even crayons; let yourself be silly, spontaneous, playful. Do you long for the radiant yellow warmth of sunshine? Or the deep calming blue of ocean?). Let yourself out to play.
