What  would you  do If you knew you  would not fail? I’ve asked this question of many  creatives and of myself. I recently took the month and made much the  same choice but the journey started exactly 10 years ago. more importantly  What’s The Shell in your life? forr many  women it’s a need for approval, a need to please

On Breaking  My Shell– I  so connected with this song.  Actually the entire interview is worth catching.  Trust me BREAKING  THROUGH  is tough  To Do! As a creative who advocates and helps others. I’ve noticed that what  holds other creative back is that “imaginary shell” they build around themselves! So  when I heard India.Arie on Oprah’s Soul Summit Sunday, I  simply needed the “Break the Shell” lyrics to share with creative entrepreneurs.  It’s a journey  I’ve personally gone through and not running from the challenge is probably the toughest part of the  journey. Second would be letting go  of those that  tether you and prevent  you from Flying!  Here are a few clips in my You tube playlist


Sure, I know it’s gonna it’s gonna take a lot more than lyrics trust me  …  But there are tools and there are programs(I’ve even designed a very successful one) and I’ve learned that if you  OPEN your mind to the possibility and open your voice to the Universe God Provides a way… Watch Indi.Arie on  OWNTV on demand see lyrics below.

I met a prophet dark as the night
She could see into my soul
Said she’d been watching and had some advice.
She said shadows make you whole
A life without pain is a wolf in sheep’s clothes,
Cause if you listen to the lessons that it holds
You’ll find the gold.
Child its time to break the shell
Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt
You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself
You cannot fly until you break the shell
I can remember when I was a child
How the grown folks seemed so crazy
Why are they so angry, why are they so loud?
And when I grow up that’s never ever gonna be me
That was the moment that I decide
That I would build a wall just shy of six feet tall
Too strong to fall
Child its time to break the shell
Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt
You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself
You cannot fly until you break the shell
Courage is not being hard
It’s time to peel back all of the layers
You put between who You’re meant to be
And You who are
And go be who You are
So much disappointment to finally understand
That there is no such thing as perfect
Were all simply doing the best that we can
And we have a choice to live or truly be alive
(This is your life)
Child its time to break the shell
Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt
You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself
You cannot  fly until it breaks the shell
Do with these words what you will
Its time for us to be for real
You’ll be stuck on the ground until
You finally break the shell
