I am me.
I stand alone in my own skin
as an independent thinker.
I claim my power.
I am not defined by anyone, anything, or by my past experiences.
I am defined by
who I am
and what I choose
in the here and now and moving forward.
I set myself free,
holding onto my own power.
Free to move forward in the way that I choose, honouring myself.
I am free to create, to be me
and to be seen,
without looking behind at my past.
I stand with integrity by my powerful words
in the knowing that they are my truth,
I fly with grace, always, and I show up,
by MaryAnn Burrows
My feathers are now fluffed back up, and I am ready to take flight. This painting was birthed from my journey. Today is a time for joy and a moment to celebrate all of the life lessons, that brought me here to this moment where I am able to feel the deepest gratitude for the Spirit of the raven, the Devine source, and for my ability to put feelings and thoughts from my heart and mind onto paper and share it with the world.
I hope that I am forever learning how to fly.
