When we get a chance to hand over our fears, our worries, our shadowy shames to one another, we feel lighter. We are betterfor this exchange. .  Today, my blog post is titled Shadowy Places. My friend Heather @thriveinmidlife helped me by sharing her story of how she got over her overdrinking. And she remarked that others had shared their relief privately with her and that lets her know it's a powerful good thing to share our stories, revealing our shadowy places. I'm doing the same. Pay it forward. .  #everythingissacred #alifeofintention #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #emotionalmaturity #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #community #communication #mushrooms
Shadows for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars .  It is the shadows that make the piece come alive. The shadows that give my sketches the depth of realism. .  So it is with people. Their shadows and their shames make them more human. As humans, we will never be perfect. Yet we keep torturing ourselves with uninteresting goals of perfection. I'm bored by that. . .  #taleswithfriends #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #mywisdomlessons #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
[ Grace ]  Spring #soul_selfie Challenge '18 .  That I live this life is miraculous. I had so many opportunities to veer down the wrong roads. The destructive roads, dangerous roads, ungracious places. .  Yet here I am. I was the gracious hostess of a dinner party in my lovely home tonight.  My children are beautiful inside and out. I am writing and arting and I am healing my soul day by day. i am rising .  Here, by the Grace of everything that is dear to me,  I keep going. .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswihfriends #emotionalmaturity #emotionalintelligence  #writersofig #selfdevelopment #florals #onmymantel
[ Enough ] - Spring #soul_selfie Challenge '18 .  If you don't value yourself enough to take care of you; to go to the doctor's, to finish that degree, or to leave that abusive spouse, I get it. You don't feel worthy. So be it. .  But when there are children watching you, emulating your every choice? This is dangerously enough of that. Where I could not do things for myself, I found extra strength in my understanding that I need to model what I wish for them to emulate. Courage and self-respect are a Do as I Do kinda thing. .  My blogpost today is titled Why Make the Effort? Your children, my children, and your innerchild know what enough is. Link is in my profile to my blog at Shalavee.com. . .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswihfriends #emotionalmaturity  #emotionalintelligence #inmychair #selfie #b&w #blackandwhite #ontheblog #writersofig #selfdevelopment
🤲Day 4 for #soul_selfie Spring 2018🤲 . [ Wealth ] - We will never be hungry or lonely or homeless if we allow people to love us and devote ourselves to them. You may not be shocked to know that I consider this online Instagram community a source of wealth for me. I adore all of you and over the past few years, my esteem has risen and expanded exponentially in part due to my IG community. .  Our word, our connections, and the people who love us are our truest wealth. .  I wish you all this abundance of spirit and joy and authenticity. I celebrate the creation of  this kind of wealth in all facets of our lives. When you are ready, people show up. Really really and truly they do. Leave your doors open, put a welcome mat out, and host you life. .  #soul_selfie #community #meetup #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #emotionalintegrity #selfdevelopment #beherenow #challenge #challenge #selfleadership #blogger #writersofig
🌱Day 3 for the #soul_selfie Challenge🌱 .  I keep asking my husband if he's being gentle with my son. I walk up to him and look him in the eye and ask, "Are you being gentle?" Because as parents, we tend to be as hard on our children as we are on ourselves. .  Driving ourselves and our children without compassion doesn't serve our world well. This practice just reinforces the cycle. I want my children to be compassionate and have humanity left in them when they reach a place where they can help the world heal. .  Go gently into your day please! .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswihfriends #backyardshennenigans #familymoments  #tomatogarden #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #familytime #getoutside #gentle #storyofmyday #childrenofinstagram

👉 #inspiringperson 👈 for #alprillove2018 .  This is Sue. We like Sue. Sue likes us. Somehow we we're lucky enough to have her decide she would be our Easter bunny turned chicken every year. A torch now passed down to Eamon for Fiona with Sue's help. (Note his sign with three letter words to help her read her clues.) .  And I am blown away everytime she says yes to spending time with me. She cohosted my baby shower for goodness sake but I didn't think that this woman I adored thought well of me too. She's a superstar to her community and to all the children who have had the privilege of being mentored by her. Thanks Miss Zoo for being you @sue_in_caroline_co.md .  #leadership #community #mentor #taleswithfriends #family #mywisdomlessons #eamonspencerpeach #carolinecountymd

The Anonymous groups have a term, "terminally unique". This feeling allows people to slowly kill themselves from their fear of being alone  Here's the thing:  you've never been alone. Alone is a construct of fear and your survival rests on our connection and community. I could not eat or put on awesome deodorant without other people making these items. .  On my blog at Shalavee.com today, a post titled You've Never Been Alone. Link in my profile to a short and enlightening handful of truths that may change your view today.

I am ever- present for these two. Playground? Absolutely. Three meals a day. Of course. Floss your teeth, cut your toenails, behavior chart stickers, and time outs if necessary. .  Motherhood is also a dasterdly way to forget myself. To disregard everything I've aspired to and worked on. It's a good excuse to remain invisible. Not be vulnerable. Except then, I'm a rotten role model. .  On the blog today, a piece titled I Forget Myself. Link to Shalavee..com in my profile. Because you and I have more in common than we realize. .  #ontheblog #blogger #writersofig #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #taleswithfriends #selfdiscovery #emotionalmaturity #selfleadership
You've worked really hard to get here. Put in years of hard work, raised a family and built a career or mastered a skill. Then how can it be so easy to invalidate your own existence? .  On my blog, I wonder why we forget our impact on others. Disregard ourselves when it takes courage to be us everyday.

Intuition is a guide, it is your deepest you. It is not the critical part, it is the supportive part. Intuition is loving and available always. .  Kind and gentle thoughts from my blog post from yesterday entitled Following Your Intuition and Figuring it out as You Go .  I think of Intuition as the inner child. Compassionate and I believe the source of creativity. .  Because everytime you are figuring your way through a problem toward a place you want to be, that's Creativity and your intuition is leading the way. .  #liveauthentically #taleswithfriends #charcoal #pastels #ontheblog #blogger #ubercreative #creativememas #intuition #selfawareness #selfdiscovery #createeveryday #ourcreativeselves #mywisdomlessons
The one task that I do before I feel free to get on with my day is a clean my kitchen. The sink needs to be clear of dishes and the porcelain scrubbed white with cleanser. It's an ideal that I try my best to uphold. So that when I re-enter my kitchen for lunch, I'm not already at a defecit. I can make this happen 75% of the time. .  The morning light is nice to bask in. And when it's cold outside, the warm water feels wonderful on my hands. Happy Friday to you and here's to clearing space for your weekend relaxation. Thank you @michelle_gd for your Turn the Lens On Self Challenge. I am feeling a twitch to organize my Soul Selfie Challenge soon! .  My blog post today asks  What Are We Writing For?  I answer.

Equilibrium / Balance between the wannas and the haftas, the doing and the downtime As I begin to imagine my value increasing, and guaging my "enough" correctly, I begin to weave my wannas into my haftas. And sometimes my haftas feel like self-care. .  The Birthday Party is such an excuse for a good Spring cleaning and for bringing all our loved ones together. Oh plus copious amounts of creativity. A Balanced diet. All my happy buttons played together. And then being fully present in the downbeat. The common denominator of all tasks is being mindfully present and knowing they are finite. .  #turnthelensonself #taleswithfriends #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #tikigod #partydecor #moanaparty #kocamoracoconuts #balance #beherenow
