I let my secret out. I’m ILLUMEinating my first Book! So I’ve been a little quiet here, because I’ve been spending every moment Designing my Dreams into Delight. I’m totally absorbed in my notBusiNESS for Luminaries World and I am in Bliss. Hummingbird~ing between Illustrating. Writing. Glittering Typography. ♥osophising. And capturing Luxurious Simplicity in my DIY lightbox photo studio, I feel My Self humming.
My journey has been a little bumpy. I wasn’t sure who I was and why I was here in this maddeningly fragile (yet adorable) body, a tangled effervescent imagination, an exquisitely, excruciatingly compassionate heart, and a spirit clinging idealistically to the world of dreams and Love. I didn’t seem to fit in my world. I wasn’t built to cope with it’s Competitive Rushing. Frenetic Demands. I tried to keep up. And when Autoimmune made me sit still I tried to pretzel my magic into its rules. I pushed and plugged away.
I knew that there was something really special. I could see it out of the corner of my eye. I knew that all of my passions must link together somehow. Design. Sustaining. Communication. Holistic Health. Glitter. That life didn’t need to be so hard. It wasn’t until I began THRIVEing, learning to be Still that I saw it. My Sparkle. My true self. The self that has been here inside me, beneath the Tizzy, desperate to come out and play.
When I started listening with my heart, suddenly everything started clicking into place. Slowly at first. Because listening was tricky. And remembering to listen even trickier. But in each Breath I returned to St(illness). And my Sparkle started to speak a little louder. Until one day, she introduced herself.
I’m a LUMINARY. HyperSensitive Firefly. Introvert Minxie. Smitten Ingenue. My SUPERPOWER? I’m a DESIGNER. Sustainer. ♥osopher. It was as Luxuriously Simple as that.
All of the angst and searching and rushing and pushing. All the fear and uncertainty and frustration. All the Tizzy. My DisEASE. Was my Sparkle. Throwing a tantrum. Because I didn’t realise that these fragile parts of me were my true strength. Because I just wasn’t listening.
But I’m Listening now. And it feels amazing.
Today I entered my business expenses (ooh how grown up!) * Glitter * Feather Wings * Photo Studio Reflector *.
And I realised.
I’m accidentally Designing my Dreams into Delight.
