HER LITTLE WINGS
I never knew how strong I could be.
I was a shy kid. Never danced. Only laughed on the sidelines. I wanted to jump in and play my life, but I felt insecure, sometimes invisible.
Till one day, I forgot who I was and became who I dreamt I could be.
One day, literally overnight, I picked up a microphone and sang like a super goddess. One day, I was spotted in Woolworth’s by someone who hardly recognized me 20 lbs smaller than the year before.
I was once sitting in the wings watching the show. Now I bring the show on my wings. I used to hide chocolate chip cookie dough (yes, I said DOUGH) in my coat pocket. Now I’m doing chin ups and headstands.
I saw Her. Me, actually. Though, I hadn’t become Her yet.
She existed in my mind, in my heart. I watched other goddesses embody Her. I emulated them. I studied them. And I imagined what could be possible for me, too.
I wrote Her. I let Her come to life in my journals.
Then, because She’d been written, heard, felt, and seen so clearly, I became the person I imagined.
I became a performer of poetry and song all over the US.
I became a special needs Theatre Arts teacher in the NY public schools. I became a dancer of improvised movement. I became a creator of a children’s yoga program I called Creative Movement for Enlightened Minds. I became a sculptor of clay vessels and clay jewelry. And I became a published writer of articles, workshops, and the book you have in your hands, LEAN HAPPY HEALTHY YOU.
I saw Her inside me first. Then I gave Her wings.
I will help you find your wings, no matter how big or small. You have them. With wings, you can live above ordinary.
WHEN WE RUMINATE OVER A THOUGHT,
OR AN OUTCOME; WE ARE USING OUR IMAGINATION.
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT WHAT WE WANT,
WHAT WE BELIEVE,
WHAT WE FEAR; WE ARE USING OUR IMAGINATION.
WHEN WE STAY UP ALL NIGHT BECAUSE OUR MIND IS UNLEASHED AND RUNNING RAMPANT BETWEEN LAYERS AND STREAMS AND MATRICES OF THOUGHTS; WE ARE USING OUR IMAGINATION.
WHENEVER WE DAYDREAM, WE ARE USING OUR IMAGINATION.
HOW ARE YOU USING YOUR IMAGINATION?
YOUR IMAGINATION HAS THE MAGNETIC FORCE TO ATTRACT TO YOU ITS IMAGE.
YOUR IMAGINATION IS FILLED WITH THE PICTURES THAT ENCAPSULATE YOUR BURNING DESIRE OR YOUR BELIEF ABOUT WHAT’S POSSIBLE.
HOPEFULLY WHAT YOU BELIEVE TO BE POSSIBLE IS ALSO YOUR BURNING DESIRE.
IF NOT, WELL THAT’S WHAT YOU NEED TO
FIX RECONFIGURE RIGHT NOW.
