Genius, Power & Magic

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
(W.H. Murray)

Hello lovelies! I hope you're having a wonderful week filled with productivity and happiness. Things have been going really well in my part of the universe. My new job is great — I'm feeling less like a novice and am settling into a groove that feels right. I'm also getting more energized about blogging, tweeting and keeping up with all you creatively gorgeous souls.

This weekend I am planning on catching up on my google reader, responding to emails and dreaming up some goals for the future. It's time to revisit my intentions for the site and reconnect to the essence of why I love blogging.

When I started this blog last September, I explained it as a journey, "...a venture through creative forests and inspirational waters. A space for us to share our insights and musings on everything from yogic breath to pink toe nails... an opportunity to spread my limbs, to travel through time, to discover my inner artist, to pursue a more authentic life."

I feel the same way I did 7 months ago when I launched the site, and I'm looking forward to what the future will bring.  I am excited to continue my pursuit to make each day a bit more extraordinary than the last, and I hope you will happily join me!
