What Inspires Me: A Guest Post by Goddess Leonie

September 4th, 2009

I am slowly learning
not to look to others
for inspiration
but to find it instead
in the way the wind blows against my face


and how the earth feels beneath me when I walk it


and how my guides reveal themselves to me, wrapping me in their horse-scented


Inspiration is how life looks and feels when Iʼm not worrying about
how I should change, or it should change...
and instead just trusting that who and where I am is just perfect.


Inspiration is my path,
with its luscious valleys and heart-opening mountains,
with the gentle weave of a river
bringing new blessings and lessons in my life.


And the truest inspiration of mine:
is discovering the Goddess inside me:
her story, her wisdom, her joy, her creativity,
that needs and wants to be shared.

Goddess inside them through art, e-courses & coaching. She lives in the alpine mountains

These words reached deep inside and found a place within me, thank you.

“just trusting that who and where I am is just perfect.”
I really like that line. I speaks to me so much because I am someone who is always trying to change to be better, not being satisfied with who I am and what I’m doing, thinking I’m not good enough. What a beautiful piece of writing, thankyou.
