ten things

1. When do you feel happiest?

When I am writing. When it flows, it is the most amazing thing in the world.
Conversely, when I'm stuck, it is insanely frustrating.

2. How do you take care of yourself?

I sleep A LOT. And I try not to be too hard on myself.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?

I am inspired by others, but motivated by something that is so completely unknowable I don't know that I could call it myself... but it comes from within me.

4. What do you do for fun?

Shop. Sing. Dance. Laugh. Watch movies. Read. Sew. Paint. Write. Bake. Listen to music.
And most of all, spend time with my dear friends.

5. What intimidates you?

This quote.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Maryanne Williamson
