Be Brave

My dear friends and the Universe,

It has been too long since my last post that I feel a bit shy (yes ‘shy’ is my middle name, believe it or not!), so as usual, I will just place my hand on my heart and will write following its beats… :-)…

Since my birthday last February I have been feeling very reflective, deeply thoughtful and meditative… Two powerful words kept coming into my mind ‘BE BRAVE’, followed by: Be brave to change all those stagnant situations in your life…  The fact that one more year is passing at the blink of an eye is making me feel gloomy… So many dreams and desires to fulfil and so much Magic to create… More and more thoughts were pouring into my head like a soothing and healing cascade… A gently therapy that my soul and heart were craving then, and still craving today… Once again, I was being aware of my unconscious search for happiness, and consciously aware of my reality knowing and believing the powerful true behind Jim Rohn quote:

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present”  – Jim Rohn

Yes, happiness is in the now and one thing was clear, I needed to Be brave enough to start without knowing where I was going…

So, a couple of weeks or so before my birthday, I opened my sketch book, sprayed some ink, followed by some more colour, but the project kept changing as I was following my emotions, so from this picture to the next I was unable to take a pic of the process, sorry..!



Time lapsed here also between these two images, sorry!… :))


‘Be brave’ – G. Embid (unfinished)

Still it was in February, that one day all of the sadden the thought that perhaps I was no longer in love it ready made me wonder, and still am… The mind kept wondering and my heart began to beat fast… The voice within kept whispering, so either stay in it because you have a child or be brave and find the partner who shares and holds your hand to walk by your side in the new path ahead…, but I am not a naturally brave person.. oh! Yes, you are (the voice answer).. You have to be brave when you’ve got a kid…, and yes, I have come to realise how brave I’ve been for so many years now bringing up my child mostly on my own and I am so grateful for it and so grateful for everything life has given me, including my husband..

Since last February, The law of Attraction has been so kind to me, clearly showing me the clues to follow… People and friends appeared just when I needed them the most, and I have found that when I talk to them about these things I start to feel more confident about them… The following quote is extremely comforting, empowering and uplifting. It touches my soul and it really resonates with me…

“In the flush of love’s light, we dare be brave. And suddenly we see that love costs all we are, and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free.” – Maya Angelou

I know that the most important conversation I will ever have is the one I have with yourself  because as you know  the answers are within, we just have to listen carefully… This has been super important to me in my life, I don’t allow for any negative self-talk and just focus on positive thoughts, this way I remain happy and as I teach my son: I accept everything in my life while I cannot change it… We all have read many times that being brave isn’t the absence of fear, being Brave is having that fear, but finding a way through it. So, I know that I will find the way through it, and then magic will happen because I believe in magic, and I hope you believe in Magic too… 🙂 …

Please be brave and keep creating whatever the weather…

Hasta pronto amigas y amigos…x
