Let Your Heart Sing. My post about something I’m insanely passionate about—doing what you love in this life.

It’s OK to Be Afraid. Fear gets me down too, and this is one of many posts I’ve written about it.

    hello lovely lady :). I came across your ‘let your heart sing’ video as i started searching for a way to find what it is that makes mine sing! I have no idea what it is yet, but am determined to find it :). I just wanted to let you know that i thought the video was beautiful and it moved me to tears. I found your website and i think your art is gorgeous. You give me the impression of a beacon of loving light in this world and i just wanted to say thank you. I hope for a world in the not too distant future where all beings can follow their heart the way you do.
    Many blessings
