Dare boldly

Express Yourself | 52 Acts of Grace | Week 45




I am amazed to see that I am already at Week 45 with this series!

Thank you for those who follow along and encourage me.  It can be easy with a project like this to lose ground, give up, stop before it’s completed.

I am grateful that I have chosen not to. that I have chosen instead to persevere. Persist.

Writing, creating art, doing the things I am committed to doing to create ‘better’ in this world are all expressions of my true self. They are out-pourings of my divine nature looking to be seen, heard, known.

We all share this urge. We all possess a divine impulse to be seen and heard and known from the heart out.

It can be easy in this materially driven western culture to reverse the flow. To believe that my ‘worth’ is expressed in what I put around me and on me.

Don’t be fooled by expressions of material wealth.

That is all they are — an outward manifestation of how much is in your bank account. Not how much you carry and know within your heart.

Be happy for your material wealth.

Be generous with your inner beauty.

Express yourself so all the world can see, and know, what is possible when we live from the heart out.




If you follow me on FB or Twitter or Instagram, you will have seen my series of art pieces with words:  #ShePersisted

I am posting each piece as it’s created on my website — HERE.  I’d love to have you join me in this exploration of what is possible when times are tough, when people want to shut us down — and Nevertheless… persist.

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. worth, or value, has only place – somewhere between our brain and our reflection in the mirror; we know our worth, we know our value – and even though most of us get caught up in ego or ‘new car shopping’ mentality in some aspect of our lives or businesses, when we are gone all that will be left is not measured in edifices or expressed with commas and zeros. It will be the value and worth of what we’ve done, who/what we’ve impacted, period. Not a scintilla more. If we write a great book or make some great things happen, or if we made a small difference in someone’s life. There is no higher calling. There is no better deed. There is nothing else that lasts or remains or is of value, period. Commas and zeros are nice – don’t get me wrong …

  2. Material wealth, I have none, but I am so rich in love and all the things money cannot buy and I believe I am blessed

  3. I’m not sure about anything anymore but your posts encourage and inspire me, Louise. I have been so lazy lately with commenting and have only just got my blog mojo back. But we are definitely on the same page here and so is my son, Ming. Thank you so much.
