Reinvent-tage Retreat Day 30

Rebrand...Repackage...Repurpose...Reinvent...

photos when blogger allows it...

Thank you all for hanging in there with me...on this month of my Reinvent-tage Retreat...30 days...we made it...

I found along the journey that I wanted desperately to cling to an identity that is slipping away...one that gave my ego a lot of positive stroking...plenty of recognition...and a modicum of fame...

Resistance has many faces...it sneaks into your life...and before you know it...you retreat...back into that comfortable safe world you know so well...that requires little more than breathing throughout the day...to survive...just survive...

Yet resistance...if you meet it head on...and embrace it...leads you to new ideas...new adventures...new creativity...and, eventually...a new you...open...ready to be filled...

It takes not skill...nor intelligence...just a willingness to be open to the unfolding of your soul...

The more skill you use, the further you'll be from what your deepest love wants. -Rumi
And open I have been...I have spent this last month enveloped in creativity...reinventing myself and my art...looking deep into all my nooks and crannies...discovering new things I could do...and new ways to do...anything...

I have discovered a strength...and a power...I did not know I had...and I will walk on my path with a new purpose...open to try new things...with open heart and open mind...

As this journey ends...a new journey begins...




See post here for your invitation to join the Reinvent-tage Retreat...and to see how the process works...

Fantastic! A heart warming post. I felt myself oozing into your warmth and discovery and self-confidence. A spiritual awakening that through its verbalisation awakens others along with you. Thank you so much for sharing.

It was an honor to travel along with you on this journey. I too was able to see where my own resistance lies and the Rumi quote and your words.."It takes not skill...just a willingness to be open to the unfolding of your soul"..sums it up for me.
You are an inspiration and so happy to have met you here :-)
Thank you!
May all your journeys be powerful and insightful
