Warm it up Kelly…

To hold myself accountable and to express myself in the greatest way I know…here are the rest of my answers to the personal manifesto prompt/warm up questions from HERE!!!

2. I absolutely love that I am…

  • Intuitive
  • Creative
  • Compassionate
  • Ambitious
  • Free spirited

3. The things I want to work on…

  • Exercise…I’ve been doing yoga here and there, but never really on a consistent basis. So I’ve started a 30 days of yoga challenge in hopes to MAKE myself take the time to do it…when the 30 days is up, I may sign up for unlimited monthly yoga…or just keep googling youtube videos…either way I WANT TO DO YOGA ERRRYDAY! Not just because it’s “cool”…but because it makes me feel really really really good. (minus the chanting stuff…that part doesn’t really resonate with me…but I like the movement, breaths, and meditation…and I like mantras)…okay okay…moving along
  • Writing…I want to write everyday. I like the idea of writing in a journal…and I do that occasionally…I’d like to do it everyday….just something small everyday…handwritten. But I also like to type…because typing keeps up with my brain and it doesn’t cramp up my hand.
  • Blogging…Dude, I wish I could blog everyday…and I try hard most days to get something out…but then I get caught up at home…or at work…and then just get lazy and tired…I want to stop that and post meaningful and personal things more!
  • Freedom…that’s a HARD one. A continuous struggle…this summer I’ve been trying to write more about my intentions in life…I’ll be in Iceland in August for a bit where I hope to SIT. RELAX. AND CLEAR MY HEAD…to allow my inner truth on what freedom means to me…
  • Guts…I need them…Listening to my heart sounds like a great idea!

4. Top 5 Heroes…in no particular order…

  • Anne of Green Gables…because who wouldn’t want a scope of the imagination? Dreamy and thoughtful.
  • Beatrix Potter…because she painted and wrote children’s books AND busted her butt to get them published without an agent…plus she lived a magical life with a garden, on her own…for a very long time…before she married late in life.
  • Ida Rentoul Outhwaite…because she is my favorite Australian artist.
  • Jes Allen…current yogi crush…her style is funky fresh.
  • The “Authorities”…My Mom and Dad…God…and my Boss. My parents for giving me everything I need and shaping me into the woman I am today…God for bringing me into this world and giving me a grand life…and my boss who is a constant inspiration on building empires ON YOUR OWN, from ground up, and giving me the everyday opportunity to serve the population.

5. Qualities…compassionate, caring, loving, receptive, ambitious, perseverance, adaptability, hard working, free spirited, dependable, trustworthy, creative, open.

6. The person I want to be right now…I want to be my own person. I want to listen to my deepest life pulls…I want to answer to life on my own. I want to be the best mom. I want to be loving and compassionate…and I want to do yoga everyday…I want to paint and draw and write whenever I feel like it…without worrying about spending some solitude. I want to learn how to surf…and go to the beach more…I want to make whatever I want to eat…and eat it…at whatever time I want to…I WANT TO BE MY OWN ALCHEMIST.

7. I want to be remembered as…Loving. Number one! Loving…I want my girls to remember me as a loving, caring, and compassionate mom who is strong willed. I want them to think of me as their go to…there shoulder to cry on…their advice giver…a listener. I want to be remembered as a boost of confidence in other peoples lives…I want them to know that I really DO CARE…it’s easy to see that in the world we live in that everyone really doesn’t care what the other is doing or their story…but I am interested. I’m interested in what you have to say…what you are feeling…and if I can help. I honest to God feel that way…everyone is walking their own path…and everyone has something unique to offer this world….and I’m interested. I like listening…

8. List the things you are waiting for...freedom. I haven’t quite figured that out yet….but I do feel held down…and it doesn’t feel good. I’m going to hold this one in if you don’t mind. This is ginormous.

9. My doubts…that I’m not good enough, I should remind myself everyday THAT I AM GOOD ENOUGH…because I am. Resentment…I don’t want anyone (ahem, husband) to resent me or me resenting anyone else, that never feels good.

10. Write….”I am the sea…and nobody owns me.” -Pippi Longstocking ten times..

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.

I am the sea…and nobody owns me.
