Share the Joy: I Am My Own Muse

I am taking Vivienne McMaster's You Are Your Own Muse class and enJOYing every minute of it. So today, I'm sharing answers from a week one worksheet. 

I am dreamweaver, soul healer, joy activator, life artist and midwife of meaningful change.

I come from an unbroken line of feisty, fabulous women.

I see most every situation as a container for joy.

I trust that if I keep my heart open, love will somehow find its way inside.  

I believe in the power of kindness and compassion & that we're all supposed to enjoy the journey that we're on.

I imagine success on my own terms.

I love (because I'm alive). Plain and simple. And I thank my former husband for offering me the opportunity to learn, deep in my soul, that I have an astonishing capacity to love someone truly, madly, deeply, without reservation, and to be steadfast in that love for decades. Without you, I would always have wondered.

I crave time alone, playing with images or toting a camera, writing, dreaming, exploring possibilities.

 What gives you JOY this week?

To play along
1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into 
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.

3. Then click the NEXT box (or the time) to choose an image
 from the post to insert in Mr. Linky's list
 so people get a sneak peek. 

(And if you just can't get it to work, 
email me and I'll try to link it for you.)

4. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
 enJOYS getting positive feedback.

Let's start an epidemic of JOY!

Oddly enough, Meri, what I've posted here today isn't exactly joyful. But, they are thoughts that I very much want to share with people. I hope you don't mind and I will certainly understand if you don't want the post here.

Your own post is so lively and I share much of your spirit. It is always more preferable to be happy and joyful. Sometimes though, it just doesn't work out that way.

Loved hearing about your course. I have read so many great pieces written by you I think you are teaching me how to be my own muse or how to find her when I think she is lost.
