Intentional Life 101

  • Trust your creative impulses.
  • Accept your curiosity’s invitation with the reply, Okay, I’ll try this.
  • Hold wonder at your core, not at arm’s length.
  • Trust that being your self looks like a patchwork quilt. Some patches are praised by many, some are known only to you, some you have not yet discovered, and some may never be appreciated or understood – but all are necessary for a bountiful existence. They hold you together.
  • Refrain from focusing only on certain pieces (the visible, successful ones or the more tattered ones). This only confuses you. Diminishes you.
  • Wrap yourself in this truth: curiosity and wonder are your sacred obligations for nurturing your creativity, for nurturing your self.
  • Flourishing can begin with the smallest, most reluctant yes.
