anney_smith_feature

A series of events started in 2005 which led me to explore my beliefs and way of being. I was as contracted then as I’ve ever been – a professional burnout at the age of 30. I wanted to be present as a wife, mother, and business-owner, so I did a lot of work (and play!) to figure out how. It’s still a moment by moment practice.

Due to various tragedies and circumstances, I’ve learned to be and to love right where I am. Sometimes that means forgiving. Sometimes it means unplugging and coloring with my little girl. Often, it means looking for solutions that can’t be found in a state of contraction. I have a choice in every moment to shift into an awareness that opens space for creativity, for expansion and new ideas, and for opportunities to emerge.

I still get stuck at times. When I do, to get back on track I often get up and move – I walk, dance, or jump on my trampoline. I practice conscious breathing and gratitude for what’s going on.

I see many people dwelling in the past, worrying about the future, and sitting in fear. I still have my moments, but the time I spend in fear, worry, or feeling wronged has decreased significantly. To me, that’s a sign that I’m on the right path.

I want to spend even less time and energy on things and situations that aren’t taking me directly into greater expansion. I want an even better understanding of how to access everything I want in life. I’m looking for ways to expand into my own creativity while helping and inspiring others to do the same. I’m on a lifelong quest for wisdom.

I believe there’s good in everything, even if we can’t see it immediately. Look at what’s in front of you right now. Be grateful for what you have. And pursue your creative expression – whether through a meal you’re cooking, a project you want to get out into the world, or in conversations with your family. Take time, every day, to nurture your creative expression. It moves mountains.
