About Living from the Heart ~

We live by stories passed on for generations about who we are
and where we should be going. But these stories don't always let us live our best lives, because they aren't our personal legends.

Living from the Heart is about discovering our own stories. Choices with Intention. It is the journey to be true to ourselves and to dare to be all God and the Universe made us to be.

Passionate With No Apologies

I admire this woman for the way she is true to herself. 

She hitched her dreams to a star as a child, worked to reach the skies and is now shining bright up in the ethers. 

She is talented, fiery and stunning, yet down to earth and loving with a big heart. 

Imperfect and yet unapologetic for it. 

"She's a very good looking, very refined, very sophisticated woman but her spirit is of the people. She's a member, let's say, of the proletariat. And so she can, with all the spleandour of a beautiful woman, play roles that are opposite of the sophisticated. Even though she can seem neurotic at times or plagued by doubt, underneath it all she has a very earthy strength. It has something to do with her roots." Pedro Almodovar

Almodovar's description moved me... i now know why i am inexplicably drawn to her. 
Like Penelope, even though i can be neurotic at times or plagued by doubt, underneath it all is a very earthy strength.

When i grow up, i want to be just like Penelope Cruz...passionate with no apologies for following my heart.
