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.

My Hero: The Seed

Like a seed in the ground..
pushing it's way
out of the dark casing, the dark soil..

nobody can see
it's there and struggling daily..
fighting all odds
to just pop out into the open..
and see the sun

it just keeps going..
focusing on using
whatever God has already stored inside it
when it was made
for as long as it can..
and on establishing roots that will steady it for life.

Oh my hero is the seed
in the ground
that turns into a might oak
in time

merely from it's tenacity
to go with the flow of the elements
however kind however harsh
focusing only on the simplicity
of making it through
just one more day
no more no less

and in time...
it gives amazing bounty to the world around
all the while
still doing the same
it's always done..

..reaching for the sun
and steadying it's roots
come what may.
