My Writing Manifesto

The blank page is my canvas.
Each day is a new opportunity
To show up for myself
And be inspired
As my words flow onto the page.

It is creativity manifested
As intangible thoughts and ideas
Are alchemized
Into tangible words I can see
Taking shape onto the page
From my own hand.
To be shared or not
The choice is always mine.

WAITING

I’ve been writing morning pages 
for seven months now
with no missed days.
The page was always there 
in my notebook
Just patiently waiting 
until I was ready to commit.

Imagine all the things 
that lie dormant and in wait.
Waiting for motion,
Waiting for something bigger,
Waiting for the right time,
Forgotten,
Re-shelved,
Undone,
And redone.
Just waiting.

And I always held the key
Even if I forgot
Or temporarily lost it.

Once found, I used the door
To the page
And found myself waiting.
To be great,
To heal,
To creatively express
And be an authentic version of myself.

And that is why I show up
Again and again
For myself
Because I’m the only one who can.

UPLIFTED

The world is in dire need
For positivity.
Not to sugarcoat reality
Or spiritually bypass the lessons
Inherent therein.

But we all need to feel uplifted
So we have the inner resources to
Create the change,
Create the world 
We want to live in,
To play an active role
And not that of the innocent bystander
Or victim of circumstance.

We matter
And we are enough
Exactly as we are.
If we show up for ourselves,
Prioritize our own wellbeing,
We lift each other up too.
