Nurture Yourself – Realizing Who You Are


nurutre-yourself-1024a-beige-webAs I come to the end of another year of nurturing, I am aware of how blessed
I’ve been to have traveled this past year with so many who’ve been
walking beside me.

We must never stop writing our own story. It helps us to be present.
It’s a gift we give to our nurturing selves.
All of the painful layers we’ve carefully peeled away this year have helped us
become attuned with our emotional selves.

I’ve looked in the mirror.
I’ve seen myself.
My expectations have far exceeded what I ever thought.
I am pleased. But, there is always room to grow for a better story.

Have you met your expectations this year?
If not, do whatever you have to do to be YOU
~ You want to Be ~
Be in your own story.

In Love and Light ….
Namaste, Isadora

in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

    • Yes, Elizabeth, there’s always room to grow. It’s been quite a ride this year.
      I’m ready for a little slowing down. It’s a grand group at NT. We all encourage
      and motivate positive outlooks. Let’s continue our dance in ‘2017’.
      Happy New Year 🎉 to you and your family. May it be filled with all the love your heart can hold.
      Isadora 🙏🏻

  8. Yes, even though peeling away layers can feel like there is nothing underneath but empty space, it means there is more room to grow, and that is a good thing. Thanks for the encouragement Isadora, wishing you a great 2017!

  9. Personal reflection is always good, but sometimes it is difficult being honest with yourself. I had a boss you believe something different – It’s not who you are, but who people think your are. – I’ve always found those words to be more haunting than motivational. Kind of like thinking of people as wearing white hats or black hats – therefore it’s OK to wear a black hat as long as people see it as white. Nonetheless, cheers to you and your mirror. 🙂
