The reassurance of just being you

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening

that is translated through you into action

And because there is only one of you in all time this expression is unique.

If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium

and be lost.

The world will not hear it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is;

Nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions.

It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly,

to keep the channel open.

You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.

You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open.

– Martha Graham

  1. Hi Naomi,

    Thank you so much for mentioning me hear on your lovely blog. I love your choice of adjective : )

    I look forward to reading more of your work soon!

    Much love to you,

  2. thanks for the reminder that we must be our own supporter – not doubter – i have been reminded a couple of times this week that I must put my work out there and tell the world I love it, and why I love it – some people won’t even know it is good until you tell them, if you have doubts others will have doubts! thanks

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
