Haiku My Heart–I am the Artist








The light is in me.

It flows out into my world.

I am the Artist.


Here we are Friday already.

This week has been all about me.

Selfish, eh ?

No, not really.

Self-serving, yes!

In the very best sense of these words!

I re-found my Artist spirit.

I journaled and painted.

I spent time with some friends who understand the value of creative time.

I spent time with a friend who really gets me and sees my shiny.

I slept late, made my Honey laugh, hugged and loved him tight, though the bumps that life brings us.

I let go of some hurt/”please love me”  issues that have been plaguing me.

The very, very best thing of all is that

I rediscovered my own power

to make this life a reflection of the brilliant, powerful being that I am.

I remembered how frickin’ Awesome I am !

Huge stuff, right ?

From the outside, nothing would seem to have changed in my life this week.

But on the inside?


Now to take this rediscovery,

and my big bad awesome Self,

and continue on my bittersweet, glorious life journey.

Can you tell I am excited ?

Remember, you are the Artists, Beautiful Ones.

Color your world !

I love the I am the artist quote. I think I need to save that for future use. I am assuming you wrote it, so I will add your name. Lovely art piece too. It seems very minimalist. I like the simplicity of it all. I love the tree and the doodle on the right. Amazing work.

Happy Friday

How is it that we so often forget our awesomeness? This journal entry is a beautiful reminder.

This is so powerful!!!
I was awe struck when I saw what you'd been working on, but the narrative was amazing! We all need to remind ourselves - regularly - that we do share the light with our work...and even for all of our short-comings, we are totally AWESOME anyway! Beautiful!

Laura said...

good for you Kim... it is to easy to forget this, for our light to hide... what a gift to ourselves and all beings when we are able to find it breaking through the shadows again. YOU ARE AWESOME!

Mary said...
