i truly believe we are all made of little pieces...the pieces come and go. i feel like i have pieces of me that are dead through all the normalcy, but once they are fed or triggered they just explode and flourish for quite some time. i go through phases of being inspired and driven to routine where i just go through the motions until the inspiration strikes me upside the head.
someone asked me, "what's it worth to you, being inspired by someone?" it took me by surprise, this question and i had to think. it's a good question to find out what drives your inner creative being.
this was my reply, "if someone can get at my core and truly inspire me to create or think or come alive, it cannot be numbered. it gets into my blood and stays there until i do something about it."
i feel indebted to people who inspire me and draw me out of ruts. people who ask the tough questions that help me understand the inner networks of my mind. all the pieces are there, i just never asked the questions that helped me put them all together. and i don't manifest all the pieces on my own...they come and go along the way from who i meet and what i experience. i just hope i can keep them coming alive without letting too many die off before i'm ready.

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”

“The most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people don’t talk anymore, they don’t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theater, the cinema, watch television, listen to the radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather around a fire and tell stories.”

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”

this week was for spinach smoothies, protein peanut butter cookies and sprints til my quads were numb.
it's amazing to see the changes in my body and how my hard work is paying off. i'm getting stronger mentally and physically. so yes, excuse me for being a health nut.
