Secrets are like Vampires

“Secrets are like vampires. A wise friend of mine once said this. They suck the life out of you, but they can only survive in the darkness. Once they’re exposed to the light, there’s a moment of horror, of recognition, but then poof—they lose their power over you.”

A while back I read “the glass castle”, Jeannette Walls style of writing and her life story deeply inspired me. Today I came across 5 things she “knows for sure” in the O Magazine and no. 5 JUMPED out! If you’re holding on to a secret, even if you don’t know you’re holding on to it and you think its past, you’ll know when you read these few lines. If it stirs something in you, get it out in the open, bring it to the light and see what happens!

reBlog from Gotham Gal

I found this fascinating quote today:

I went to see Invictus the other night with Josh and Fred.   The movie, set in 1985, is based on Nelson Mandela during the time he was the President of South Africa.   He believed that if the Springboks (their rugby team) could win the Rugby World Cup game which was going to be hosted in South Africa, the win would be a way to unite the country.   The movie is based on a true story.  FYI- Springbok is generally on every menu in South Africa and is the national animal of South, Gotham Gal, Dec 2009

Making Mistakes

Perhaps it’s my own desire to convince myself that all the mistakes I’m making will infact lead me where I need to go or it’s just this feeling I have deep inside me that just knows mistakes are right messages. regardless what’s motivating me to keep pushing on the making mistakes path, I wanted to share this short clip that might inspire you to keep trying, Micheal Eisner ex CEO Walt Disney & Paramount Studios

The Value of Confusion

Right now I’m confused, admitting this has been hard for me. My mind is always searching for a reason to peg the results on and move forward but right now in my life I know deep inside of myself that inorder for the changes I value to happen I am going to learn how to be comfortable with confusion. This is not to say I am not clear on some things – there is no doubt in my mind that I am working on projects that give my life meaning and allow me to live on purpose. The confusion comes in when I try to understand how it will all work out. Finally, I am begining to see that for new ways of being or knowing or feeling there has to be a time of confusion, of not knowing cause truth is, I dont know how this will unfold only that I know I must do it.
