Wildness

Liz Strauss at Successful Blog is asking for only 25 words of wisdom on something you see too much or too little of. I’ve always been inspired by two things, brevity and wildness, so I had to accept this wonderful challenge. I’m grateful Liz. Here are my 25 words.

Boldly express your wildness.

Release all fear of judgment.

Inspire us with your raw, untamed vigor.

Be the wild spirit who came here to soar.

  1. Here is my try:

    Glorious heavens and earth,
    Mysterious and grand.
    Painted across infinity
    From the hand of the artist.
    You declare his majesty
    The God of all creation.

  2. Hi Tom – That is brilliant. And you made an excellent choice of picture to go with it too. I didn’t finish mine in time to accept Liz’s challenge – but it was a wonderful idea and I’m enjoying reading them all.

  3. Oh, I’m sorry I missed it. Here’s mine:

    Trouble begins when we forget we are one.
    Lying, stealing, and killing . . .
    Or helping, giving, and healing . ..
    You do it to yourself.
    We are one.

  6. Laurie no wonder you show us that photo of your arms raised high! Glorious exhilaration come to mind when I see you celebrating life.

    Hi Cath yes I saw the challenge on the last day and couldn’t resist.
    I wish all blogs were this brief and then I could read more of them. πŸ™‚ I’m only partially kidding.

    Mare yep we are one. Cool way of stating that. Thank you.

  7. I like brevity too. This was beautiful.

    Releasing all fear of judgment is a big goal of mine. Right after letting go of perfectionism.

  8. Vered oh good another brevity fan. I think we ought to start Bloggers for Brevity. πŸ™‚ Wow judgment and perfectionism, that’s quite the nasty duo. I imagine that perfectionism is simply judgment turned within. At least it feels that way to me when I can never hit that perfect creation.

  9. Tom said, “I imagine that perfectionism is simply judgment turned within. At least it feels that way to me when I can never hit that perfect creation.”

    – I never thought of it like that but I really think you hit the target! Interesting thought Tom.

  10. Brenda Flores says:

    I’ve written down both of these:
    “Releasing all fear of judgment is a big goal of mine. Right after letting go of perfectionism.” – also goals of mine.

    And Tom’s “… perfectionism is simply judgment turned within.”

    Excellent stuff to ponder. Thank you both for putting it so well.

  11. Hi Brenda glad to provide you with pondering matter. I have never met a perfect person or perfect business so I figured why even shoot for something that I’ll never reach? Why not just complete things? Completions are what people pay us for. Completions are what have value.
