I believe

I believe that being a mother isn't always as fluffy and gentle as some may think. It is raw, provoking, ferocious and tender too.

I believe that nature heals us. Sometimes we forget this in our connected world with laptops, smartphones and televisions.

I believe I am on the verge of unearthing something so very big inside of me. It terrifies me and gives me strength all at once.

I believe that every one has the power to create and express ourselves. It is a direct connection to our inner selves and it is waiting for us to dive in.  Go paint, draw, cook, write or dance. I dare you. Just start.

I believe taking a risk and leaning into fear is the best way to live and to grow.

I believe that Spring will always come, no matter the length and bitterness of the winter before. 

I believe everything can be a teacher to us and an opportunity to grow. If we are open to it.

I believe we should all play more and work less. Create more and compare less. Observe more and judge less.

I believe that there is only one way to stay on our paths and that way is one step at a time.


  1. Reading this just made me feel a little bit better because today I'm not feeling all that fluffy & gentle. Thank you.

  3. Gorgeous. Perfect words for today (and, really, for every day). Thank you. xox

  4. Celina,
    Beautiful! I loved and hung on every word. Today was not fluffy for me, andI sooo needed to read this. I have enjoyed watching your journey, and I your journey has given me the courage to be present for my own. I hope that the "unearthing" will involve more power tools . . .hehehe!

  5. And so very, very, very true. Thank you....
