One of the ways I have helped myself maintain trust  and connection during this time of change and birthing a new business is a daily dose of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes (or affectionally known in my life as "CPE"). Her storytelling and analyzing of story and myth reminds me that my life has similar elements and there is a path through the wilderness. When I remember that each challenge and transformation is just like another stage or step in the story I am not only brought comfort but the heroine in me leaps to meet it. 

Here's two of my favourites from this morning, I hope they help to remind you too. 

"Do not cringe and make yourself small if you are called the black sheep, the maverick, the lone wolf. Those with slow seeing say a nonconformist is a blight on society. But if has been proven over the centuries, that being different means standing on the edge, means one is practically guaranteed to make an original contribution, a useful and stunning contribution to her culture."


"When seeking guidance, don't ever listen to the tiny-hearted. Be kind to them, heap them with blessing, cajole them, but do not follow their advice."

Ahh, that feels better already. 

Wishing you a day filled with whatever you are needing right now,
