I said Yes to something. Something that I assumed other folks in my life wouldn't understand. Something that I felt embarrassed and shy to say that I wanted. It's Vivienne McMaster's "Be Your Own Beloved" Course. I have been intrigued and moved by her photos and commentary over the years. In the act of asking myself, what do we actually want? I heard this class. I felt the wave of happiness that comes unexpectedly when I say yes to an opportunity that I truly want. In signing up for something that I have wanted to do for years, I have affirmed myself. And, I choose to believe that this choice tells my Muse, my soul and my artist that I'm listening, that I haven't given up on living a life that feels true to me in all ways. So I'm becoming my own beloved, and allowing myself to feel the joy of seeing my self through a compassionate lens. So grateful to Vivienne and the #beyourownbeloved community.
