vision boards vs. breadcrumbs

There’s a lot about my life I’d like to change right now. I can see pretty lucidly what’s not working and where the problems are, but I’m actually experiencing an even bigger problem.

The way I’ve gone about creating new futures for myself, now rings hollow.

I used to do the “vision board” thing: create a very clear vision of what I want, write out lists with criteria as specific as possible, and then send that desire out into the Universe.

Dear friend,

This one is a bit long, but worth it. I’m about to share some parts of my life story I’ve never shared publicly to this degree — specifically about heartbreaks and Dark Nights, and how they can remake you into a Queen. As they have for me.

I also have a free workshop next week, which I’ll share more about in a moment, but feel free to learn more and reserve your seat now:

Wow. THIS was his New Year’s resolution.

I’ve packed a lot of WOW into this blog post.

It all starts in the check-out line at my favorite grocery store.

Whenever D is working, I push my cart into his station. It’s going on two years now that we’ve been chatting and sharing little details of our lives as he scans and I bag.

As he often does, D asks me how my “little man” is. Since the pandemic, I don’t bring my son into stores anymore, and he is missed.

Then D says something so wow-inspiring I titled this whole blog post in honor of it.

The prayer of despair

New Year’s wishes of ease and grace to you!

A few days ago, on the cusp of our collective leap out into 2021, I shared some of The Only Prayers You Really Ever Need:


Help

Thanks

Wow

Sorry

Mmmmmm

F*^#$@!!!!!&?cK!


These are non-denominational prayers, of course. Prayers suited to the particular sensibilities of my fellow rebels and heathens.

I also promised to share each of those Five Prayers with you, in the forms of poems, paintings, dances, glances.

So here is highly-esteemed number one on the list: Help.

My Five Favorite Prayers (non-denominational, ideal for rebels and heathens)

I’ve been trying to come up with something meaningful to share with you at the close of this deeply disturbing 2020 and the rise of a hopeful new year. Yet I’ve found myself quite silent.

However I want to be in some kind of useful touch, my friend.

So I figured prayers would be just the thing.

Non-denominational prayers, of course. Prayers suited to the particular sensibilities of my fellow rebels and heathens. Prayers in the forms of poems, paintings, dances, glances.
