Discovering Your Way: Only One of You

To deepen your experience on the planet, will you give yourself five precious minutes to read the quote below?
 
Slowly.

Totally present. 

Breathing in the importance to your life and your work.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.  And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.”
– Martha Graham
American modern dancer and choreographer

To more and more of you!
Ann

    Brenda, my favorite line:”You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.” How awesome is that?!?

    What a delightful surprise to see you acknowledge me in your blog post. I don’t remember sharing this with you. I do love this quote from Martha Graham. I love the whole quote and I will take the last part with me: “You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.” That is plenty.
