It's the 10th day into the new year, and it has already yielded profound revelations and expansive opportunities for myself and many others, that I know.
Faith, has been a cornerstone in my daily life, however, this year it has been renewed and sharpened, heightening my sense of awareness, while, also encouraging obedience.
Obedience is a tricky one for me...as it requires a lot of stillness, and being a free-spirited mover and shaker, stillness can sometimes pose as a serious challenge. Over a course of time and many life lessons later, I have learned the art of stillness, however, I forget sometimes to actually implement it.
Ten days into what I feel is already a magical year, I've been firmly directed to be still (especially after my "plan" flopped). I was obedient. In the stillness, I've found my love to be redefined, deepened and released more freely. I've allowed my spirit to be replenished and my smile to be recharged. While, being still, and not sulking about my failed plan and simply accepting it as is, I focused on being obedient. And, I was rewarded greatly for it.
I'm the first one to speak, quickly, firing rapid commentary about not planning anything and simply allowing your Creator to guide you through and to your destiny. Somehow, I fell prey, and executed the very thing that I speak against so often; I planned and it failed, miserably. That was a firm reminder for me, to simply be guided. To be obedient and allow the will of who fills my lungs with oxygen daily, to direct me along the path, in which he created me for. Again, I was rewarded, and twice the awesomeness that I originally planned.
I've been known to be a rebel, push the envelope, go against the grain and march to the beat of my drum. I'm positive, that will never change about me, now, I just have a far clearer understanding of obedience and to whom, I shall obey.

*Swish, scratch, swish*...went the brushes and palm swipes of seven-subtly, eager artists against their roughly-textured and prepped canvases. Resonating incredibly soothing feels, like a medium-bristled brush being lovingly and carefully raked through her hair. It gave her the chills (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
She, steadily walked down the busy road, yet there were no appropriate sidewalks and cars were whizzing by. At any given time, there may have been a million questions/comments/thoughts/replays/intentions and words traveling along the synapses of her nerve endings, overflowing her system and blowing her mind (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
