Inspiration Monday

Spread the love

I have been in one of my reflective moods. I have been reflecting on where my life has been but more importantly where I want my life to go. Maybe it’s not where I want my life to go so much, as in where my life HAS to go. I feel that my heart and my soul is aching to live my life fully and doing things that I know that I am suppose to be doing to make my soul happy. So I began searching the web for inspiration and encouragement in the form of pictures and / or words. I found so much that my head began to spin. But as I was resting after my internet overload, a poem that I love popped in my head. It is the poem by Dawna Markova. If you have not read this poem I strongly suggest that as you read it in this post to really think about what she is saying and I hope that it will inspire you as much as it has inspired me. I posted this poem on the wall in my boutique so that people who entered would feel immediately inspired and understand the passion that I put into creating the ambience of that space. I hope it inspires you!

I will not die an unlived life.

I will not live in fear

of falling or catching fire.

I choose to inhabit my days,

to allow my living to open me,

to make me less afraid,

more accessible,

to loosen my heart

until†it becomes a wing,

a torch, a promise.

I choose to risk my significance.

to live so that which came to me as blossom,

goes on as fruit.
