  1. Katie,

    Each time I read a piece of yours, I think you must be lurking behind my eyeballs! How I so relate to the constant rumination of my inner weirdo! You’ve managed to capture my lifetime struggle in a few paragraphs; now that I’ve read them, I give myself permission to not only listen, but to stay weird.

    Thanks for being you.

    Hello Katie, Your words touch me deeply. Thanks for your deep sharing from your heart. I am currently peeling back some of my own layers and find myself dancing more in my living room and in my life. This present moment can be very sweet when we let aliveness move through us.

  3. I hope you inner weirdo never stops talking to you, because she is so right! You have a gift of delivering the innermost truths and struggles in a beautifully crafted creation. Love it!

  4. This post–as so many on this blog do–grabbed by heart and makes me feel like my own soul is being spoken! Katie, your writing is beautiful, and even though I don’t know you, you’ve touched me in a personal way and inspired me these last few months to LISTEN to my own voice! Thank you.

  5. Beth, I’m happy you connected so much with what I wrote. It’s lovely to have fellow weirdos along for the ride. :)

  6. Jeanette, dancing in the living room. Oh yeah! I need to get back to that. I forgot how much the dog loves that — sadly he’s too big now to carry so we’ll have to work out a new step. Here’s to the sweetness of right now.

  7. Marci my friend, I have a feeling my inner weirdo is just getting started. Thank you for the amazingly supportive and encouraging words. You’re the best.

  8. Lisa, thank you for that. I’m a little choked up. I am truly lucky to have readers such as you. I’m so glad you are listening to your own voice. Let it sing.

  9. What a wonderful relationship you have with yourself. So curious and open.

    Perhaps the sadness is because this voice has wanted to be heard for so long and now is.

    You truly deserve to love yourself in every way. Congratulations!!

  10. Jerry, I think writing has helped create that relationship. You hit the nail on the head regarding my sadness. Thank you for your support and compassion.

    Whenever i feel this way, I look back to my own center. What is my purpose? What are my values? The voice usually screams the loudest when I have gotten too far away from who I am and why I am here. The more I stay centered and focused on the right things, the more that the voice within is rewarding and supportive, rather than harsh and judgemental.

  12. Andrew, what great insight and really great questions to ask. I think for me, it’s not so much that I’m far, it’s that I’m ready. But you are right. I need to listen to the supportive side, not her shadow. Thank you.

  13. Hi Katie,

    A poetic post and so true, it is amazing what we hear when we think to listen to our inner voice, it is always there to guide us and never to mislead us. We just need to listen and trust it.


  14. So true Robert. Thanks for stopping by and listening.

  15. I loved this post. I feel as if it is written for me. I wish your inner self never stop guiding you. Thank you for this post and keep writing such posts.

  16. Really great article. This article made me to think.

  17. Thanks for the share. You have also inspired me to stop, reflect and listen to what my heart and inner voice are telling me.

  18. I was still quite difficult to understand what you write, but this is precisely the greater interest, Greetings

  19. Beautiful picture, I got a dog that looks exactly like this.

  20. This is so true: “Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.” This line should be shown for young people when they think about their carrier and life it self.
