Somehow, it was in her smile I knew that Heaven has not abandoned humanity.
Everyday is a new adventure and with a new adventure I always seem to be presented with a new challenge of being brave.
As an artist, I feel like I am always coming up against resistance. Most of the time it usually all in my head, but it seems to take over the control if I let it. The War of Art, as author Stenen Pressfield coined it.
Resistance is there all the time. It’s there when we are falling in love, it is there when we get the opportunity of a lifetime, it is there every time we have a dream. A dream of being greater, more creative, and bold. Resistance keeps us from following our heart.
If there is something I am scared of, then that usually means it’s something I should be doing. The resistance I feel is proportionate to how important the art, project, or enterprise is to me.
The impulse that pulls us towards art, and our creativity, is our innate instinct to evolve, and to learn. It is our true (self)! The fear (the ego) is what pulls us away.
And I could go on and on about this but for today, I will keep it simple. That little voice that tells you no, you can’t do it, it won’t work, it’s not the time, you are not there yet, who do you think you are??? This voice is just the ego trying to keep us where we are. It likes it that way, it’s familiar and the more enlightened we become, the less we need it, so it does everything in it’s power to hold us down.
Resistance feeds on fear, fear of not being good enough, not having people like us, not being able to support our families, the list is endless. So here we are….. What do we do? We know everyday the fear will be there. Everyday we come face to face with resistance and the only way to knock it down back where it belongs is to say, Today I Am Brave!!! Because when you are brave you can accomplish anything.
Today, I am excited to announce that TODAY, I AM BRAVE which is a heart-centered, socially driven experiment that celebrates people performing Brave acts every day and everywhere is doing a story on me. They will be coming to the studio today to take some video. I am feeling super blessed and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful movement because my mission is the same as theirs, which is to inspire others to be brave and conquer their fears.
I will be posting it when they finish it!!

A beautiful mess.
Loving her is a splendid adventure.
