Let no one keep you from your journey

let no one keep you from your journey

While my inner perfectionist is still napping in the backroom, I feel I should sneak in my SECOND blog post! Nothing ambitious, nothing that will wake up little-miss-perfect, just something sweet and simple to keep this 'just DO it already!!!!' momentum going...  

How about a poem. Here's one that stopped me in my tracks when I heard it on Liz Gilbert's amazing podcast last week. It's by the spiritual poet Mark Nepo, and it goes like this:

Let no one keep you from your journey,
no rabbi or priest, no mother
who wants you to dig for treasures
she misplaced, no father
who won't let one life be enough,
no lover who measures their worth
by what you might give up,
no voice that tells you in the night
it can't be done.

Let nothing dissuade you
from seeing what you see
or feeling the winds that make you
want to dance alone
or go where no one
has yet to go.

You are the only explorer.
Your heart, the unreadable compass.
Your soul, the shore of a promise
too great to be ignored.

Another angel egging me on.

Whatever soul journey you're on, hope this poem gives you a little nudge in the right direction as well. C x
