When the words I am brave and beautiful first came into my head, I was a little embarrassed. I can’t write that, I thought, it’s too…well, just too much, too bold, brazen too much like bragging. But they wouldn’t go away. I found myself saying them to other people. I left a comment on Kim Giffords blog, “You are brave and beautiful”. So if I can say it about someone else, why can’t I say it to me, and if I can say it to me, why can’t you say it to you. I think anything I’m afraid to say has some power to it.
So there she is, my latest Everyday Goddess ( all of you and me) brave and beautiful her heart shaped bareness for all the world to see.
I’m thinking of a maroon border with a bit of blue. I’ll look on my list and see who’s next in line for a pillow and see if brave and beautiful is where they’re at.

She is a goddess, Maria, naked and free. She is in the Starfish pose – a starfish has amazing powers of rejuevination and renewal. Beautiful!
Love this Maria. And, your words were so powerful when you said them to me. They had such an impact!
Hi Maria. I would love to but this pillow if you haven’t sold it. It calls to me.
Oh Maria, How joyful we feel! I’m smiling so happily at this creation!
It’s a jewel. 🙂
Oh pick me – I’m brave and beautiful. You know this is something that mothers tell their children and isn’t it great to have the ability to say it to your grown up self or to a friend. I love it and the colors and the message.
Just lovely- and the maroon border will just make that orange glow. Lucky who ever it goes to!
They just keep getting better and more beautiful every time you create a new streaming piece.
