TRU Intuition

Create something special . . .

The cat’s out of the bag. Seth Godin just publicly said thanks to his vendors on Thanksgiving. And yes, I was one of them. I’ve been dying to tell you who the 200 mugs were for, but they were secret gifts for some of his Kickstarter supporters.

It was about 3 yrs ago, I read a piece by Seth. A blog post. I was a subscriber. And in it, he said, if you run into a problem, “try different.” I wanted to remember that, so I made a plaquette. When it was done, I felt like it was for him. Surprise! So I shipped it. As a “thank you” for his daily gift of words.

That was my left, logical, sense-making brain. Justifying the move.

But really, it didn’t “make sense.” It was a still, small voice. And it came from my right brain.

I heard it. And my body felt it. Fun. Excited. Like “YES!” So I shipped it.

That’s how Seth and I met.

There was no logic to it.

. . . . . . . . .

Coming T.R.U

I share this story to bring light to that still, small “illogical” voice. The one that shows up. And we often ignore.

It seems to pop up out of nowhere. But it’s real. Not tangible, but real none the less. It’s always rooted in love. And it’s there to guide you. To the life you were meant to lead.

It’s not restricted by left brain logic. It operates on the right. Free to call forth your adventure. As it was designed, especially for you.

As this year draws to a close, listen for that voice. And play as it leads!

Studio Clamor

If you’re anywhere close to Eagle Rock, CA today (Sunday), stop by. Enchanted Handmade has been a season favorite. For one-of-a-kind handmade holiday gifts. I’ll be there with my ceramics. xo

The ALPHA Action Team formed in minutes, after last week’s invitation. Literally. Wish I had room for everyone! I can see this is a hot topic. So there will be more opportunities. In January. In the meantime, I will share our adventures here. Thanks for volunteering.
