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.

Young At Heart

I love the way  Barbara Johnson says:

Age sometimes has very little to with how old a person is ... The 'young ones' all have three things in common: a sense of purpose for their lives; a commitment to concentrate on what's right instead of what's wrong; and an environment full of outside interests.

Most people guess I'm far younger than my actual age ... which is just proof that AGE is a social construct. I read of China Machado over the weekend - a model at 81 years old. Granted, she was already a supermodel in her youth and has obviously aged gracefully over the years in France. Still - that she can still be lovely and signed on by IMG AS a model ... (IMG is an international global media house that has the likes of Giselle Bundchen on their portfolio!)  Proof that so much of who we are seems to be based on agreed norms of what measures our life - a ticking clock and calendars. Years in our life rather than life in our years.

I remember looking far older than I do now in my actual youth. I had so much emotional baggage and limitations in my mind. I lived either in the past or the future. I did not have life in my years and THAT was what truly aged me. My soul was trapped and it showed. A decade later, people guess me to be a decade younger than my age on paper ... probably because today, i refuse to live anywhere but in the NOW-ness of my life. I have only ONE job now.  And that is to remove any and all barriers in my path to LoVe, as and when they appear. It's a good job ... it well sustains me living optimally as a good job must do!

The more i Live from my Heart ... the more my age seems becomes a mere social construct, an accepted norm rather than a true reflection of my inner and outer landscape ... my Lifescape.

For the more i Live from my Heart .. the more i am driven by play and love in experiencing this life ... and as both play and love are full of timelessness, so too becomes my 'age' ... as it transforms into a true measured reflection of my universal essence of being .. infinitely unmeasurable ~  ✿

Let's always stay young at heart ..... life is to be savoured and LiVed! (gorgeous image from the www)

I've Never Been to Me ...

i walk barefoot a lot ...
so this is a tribute to my feet

they've walked a thousand miles without complaint
and somehow get the most ignored
no more, no more ... taken for granted
from now ... the least shall be first

i am going to love and honour
with undivided passion
the parts of my life that have been
and remain
my own best friend ~
