I am into the second week of my Author Awakening Adventure – and I finally have the time and headspace to start putting some thought into it, and doing the exercises in the modules. I have just completed module one – all very thought provoking. And I utterly surprised myself by discovering I prefer to do the exercises by hand – not on the computer.
There is one last thing from the module I’d like to address, and that is the little card that states: 3 Soul Questions – Who are you? Where did you come from? Why are you here?
Gosh these questions can be answered on so many levels.
Who am I?
I am Simone.
Mother. Daughter. Sister. Wife.
Friend. Cousin. Teacher. Mentor.
Caring. Compassionate. Creative.
Broken & Bruised.
Happy & Sad all at once – why choose?
Lost & Lonely. Found & Friendly.
Ready for recovery.
Ready to live.
Where did you come from?
I burst into the world from the safety and warmth of my mother’s womb.
I came from love and hope. Decisions and expectations.
I came from Scotland & Ireland, England & Wales.
Australia. Tasmania. Hobart City.
I came from a place of judgment and criticism.
A place of learning, music and mentorships.
I came from firm friendships – filled with support, understanding, guidance, loyalty.
I came from all that befell me and all that I chose to see.
Why are you here?
I am here to nurture.
Listen and learn. Watch. Observe.
To see what’s not visible and hear what’s not heard.
I am here to guide, teach and inspire.
I am here to create order from chaos.
To love without condition.
And to give without expectation.
To share what I have – through music and words.
To play. To reflect. To write.
I am here because.
