Courage Doesn’t Always Roar

Standard

Courage doesn’t always roar
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
“I will try again tomorrow.”

Why Mary Anne and Applied Insight
Need Your Help

Mary Anne is ready to inspire future generations with fresh work and delightful new energy (because evidently a quarter century of art and verses and a dozen books later she hasn’t even scratched the surface). So, she’s creating a new studio and artistic space in her home where she can host retreats and workshops and artists (oh my!), and where she can birth another glorious array of ideas and insights, art and words, to inspire generations to come.

She calls the new space “The APRON-AERIE,” where she dons boldly-colored aprons (often polka-dotted in nature) to create and inspire and to support others in doing the same. THAT’s what Kickstarter will help her do. One of our fabulous Kickstarter rewards levels gives you and a friend a 5-night, 6-day opportunity to spend uninterrupted time in the APRON-AERIE with customized artistic guidance from Mary Anne, enjoying rest, relaxation, creativity, and million-dollar views from her lovely studio and home on Whidbey Island. But there are so many more ways you can enjoy and celebrate her work.

Because while she’s doing all of that, the Applied Insight team will be busily bringing all of her inspiring new work to the world. In the form of cards and journals, art and affirmations–whatever touchstones will help people remember to act boldly, embrace courage, and live with intention. To do this, our Kickstarter campaign will help launch an exquisite new line of wall art, journals, stationery, and quote cards that people have been asking for (ok, demanding) for many, many months. Mary Anne creates. We bring it to the world. You love it (and live it) every day. Everyone wins.

Those who have followed Mary Anne’s career know that she is far more inclined to ask for help for others (and often does so with grace and compassion). Applied Insight knows this about her and we are asking for help on behalf of this whole endeavor.

Courage doesn't always roar

It takes courage
to recognize that rigid habit inhibits
It takes courage to accept
that the way you “have always been”
does not determine the way you are.

It takes courage
to stand in a place you didn’t know existed…
and learn from a view
you previously couldn’t imagine.
It takes courage to let go
of your assumptions
and fly you dreams as a
soaring invitation to become the best
version of yourself.

It takes courage to stand for your convictions.
It takes courage to give up control
and it takes courage to recognize
you are perfect just the way you are.

Change of any sort, requires courage…
Courage to write a new story of your life
with the pen of each day…
of every moment.

Tell yourself this little story when you need it –
“I have the courage to stand in whatever
the weather brings…
and understand that everything is washable.
Everything is fixable
and everything is replaceable
but by time and breath.”
