Since childhood I've admired Joan of Arc. I have always admired her strength, resolve and absolute confidence in who she was and what she was place here on earth to do. And to have such insight, wisdom and confidence at such a young age... her life spoke volumes to me. I related to her more as I matured as a woman and resolved in my own heart to know the authentic 'me' and not who people and society kept telling me I should be. This resolve has carried me through my life and has served me well.
As I step into 2014, single and uncertain of the road ahead of me, I have taken the time to listen to that voice deep inside and remind myself of the warrior who lives there. This lifestyle I've chosen fits the warrior inside me well. It's about freedom to be and explore who you are and join those who are like minded.
I've felt the heart beat of a warrior since a child. Maybe that is part of my dominant nature, don't know for sure. But it is a part of me. It shows itself in many ways, but mainly can be seen where integrity, clarity and honesty live.
My hope for all of you who follow this blog is that 2014 brings even more clarity and wonder in the exploration of who you are and that more people will be drawn to the beauty that lives inside you.
I'm excited about the coming year. Have courage for the things and people still yet to appear in your life.
