For Whatever It’s Worth

The opposite of play is not work – the opposite of play is depression.

Respecting our biologically programmed

need for play can transform work.

It can bring back excitement and newness to our job.

Play helps us deal with difficulties,

provides a sense of expansiveness,

promotes mastery of our craft and is an

essential part of the creative process.

Most important, true play that comes

from our own inner needs and desires is

the only path to finding lasting joy and

satisfaction in our work.

In the long run, work does not work without play.”

– Stuart Brown from ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’ by Brene Brown

The Return to Love

Mem(e)ories, Posts

I have been reading The Return to Love by @mariannewilliamson and she spoke about letting go of fear in order to be open to personal growth, comparing it to Michaelangelo’s artistic process where “he would go to the quarry and get a big piece of marble, and the way he imagined it God had already created the statue. And his job was just to get rid of the excess marble.

So that’s what we’re like: Inside is a being that God has already created; our job is to get rid of this excess — useless fear, thought forms of the world — that actually hide the light of the soul.” so, basically We are all living our greatest life story – we just can’t quite see it yet. 〰️

Transformation Tuesday

Mem(e)oir Material, Mem(e)ories, Posts

Super happy to inform you that my #tuesdaytransformation is brought to you by me (?). Because I rarely change and in fact, when asked to, I usually respond by making it my mission to staying 💯% the same. That – and I never finish anything I start no matter how much that thing meant to me at one time or another. Because I either fear failure or I fear success 🤷🏼‍♀️So when I finally decided I needed like, an adulting test run around 6 months ago, after three years of chronic pain, brain fog and depression, I found out sugar was making me sick and was like f that and I’ve been gluten/dairy/sugar-free ever since. JUST to prove to everyone including me that I could actually stick to something for once in my life – like other adults seem to do so naturally. So did that ✔️ and the fact that I’m posting a photo like this is just the icing on the 🎂 because I was overweight until my twenties and still felt it until like, a year ago because it’s a tough thing to get past. Now I just feel good. Kinda like a #badbitch 🥊🧘‍♀️
