Best day ever

Apparently I could die of radiation poisoning tomorrow when the plume from Japan hits California but it's okay because today I made peace with God on my run along the ocean, undertook an exercise of letting go of the past and visualizing the (awesome and limitless) future, overcame a personal inhibition and decided to trust myself and try something I never thought I was good at (drawing, a precursor to painting which medium I have decided to undertake in 2011) which is turning out pretty well I must say, laid out on the beach and worked on my tan, accomplished the realization of not one but two childhood dreams, went on a dusk lit walk in one of my favorite places in the world--Balboa park, enjoyed a bike ride on Coronado island and found my dream house and subsequently fell in love, and spent the evening in the company of my wonderful and hilarious family. Best day ever. Simple and perfect. How was your day?

Early morning intuition

I awoke this morning after only 5-6 hours of sleep (WHAT?! I never do that) and began my 3 page "morning pages"--or stream of consciousness writing. I'm reading a book called "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron and I recommend it to EVERYONE. okay...though that is great information, it's not the point. It wasn't until I had only one or two lines left on my three pages that my consciousness drew out exactly what I needed to tell myself today...what was most vital. It may have been the scarcity of the page or the clearing of whatever else needed to be sorted through in my mind but at the very end of my mind blurb came the words: Follow your heart.

I went to write this as my status on facebook, but it was too long, so here you go:

As cliche as it sounds I am reminded this morning how important and necessary it is to follow your heart. You (I won't say always) usually know what's best. You usually know what it is you really want. You usually know what you need to do (though it may take you a little while to figure it out) and you will almost always only waste time by avoiding what your heart has been telling you all along (your heart being your soul, intuition, true self...not your vain desires and lust.)

"So...that's pretty cool." Peace and blessings and most of all LOVE.
