Spring is in the air! Hope. Wish. Dream. Be.
Plant a seed (a wish, a dream, a hope) this spring and nurture it with fertile soil (plant it with love and only invite supportive people to your garden) and water (kindness to yourself). Sunshine (the magic) will do the rest. Make sure you bask in whatever is your magic daily.
There is no limit to what you can do when you believe in yourself. Now, as a good friend I adore says, “Trust” — I know it isn’t that easy with the voice of the inner critic loud in your head. I have a horrible inner critic. Some days I kick her scrawny little ass. Other days, well, she beats me up pretty good. I listen to country music a lot — that is part of my magic. The lyrics make me happy. Then that inner critic doesn’t have the volume control — I do. So I bust a move and jam out to country music and look at how my toddler smiles at me. That is my one-two punch.
* Weed that garden too if need be.
Please comment here or post back here @memomuse on facebook in a couple days, weeks, months, and let us know how your garden is growing. Feel free to post a picture here.
I am planting a seed of creativity. I am making it a priority in my life to pursue a career as a creative (writing, photography, education, creativity advocate). I know in my heart it is what I am supposed to do.
Thank you stopping by the memomuse cafe. I hope you had some hope tea and wish soup. Come on back now ya hear.
I am going to leave you with some links to some YouTube videos of inspirational stuff.

If you are new here and want to get caught up to speed, see the last post, “Connection.” I am actually waiting on hearing back if I won a photo contest I entered. I am going to enjoy the day with my son and husband and not worry if I “won.” It is in the act of creating where I feel my most enlightened and beautiful. So I am not going to worry about that today. Have a great day.
