Effy Wild (& My Wild Child’s Closet)

In the month of September, I hope to be blogging every day – along with Effy from EffyWIld.Com.

Yes, I am already a day behind – but that’s the story of my life I’m afraid!  I run a little slower and take a little longer than the next person, because that is part of my nature.

It’s all good!

I woke up with a list of things running through my mind – things that make my blood run a little quicker, things that move me:

  • Redefining Beauty
  • Turning Leaves
  • Creativity Wounds
  • Body Decoration – Beyond Makeup
  • Cultivating Inner Beauty
  • Unexpected Beauty
  • Love and Passion and Heartbreak and Art
  • Vulnerabiility and Authenicity
  • Living Art
  • Processes of Creation
  • This Too Shall Pass
  • Mistake Making (It’s an Artform)
  • The Sacred Closet

I have all this going round in my head right now!  I created a new group linked to my facebook page, The Wild Child’s Dressing Up Box – because I felt the need to support anyone who might be in the same position I was in my late 20s – curious, confused and maybe a little afraid to go searching in the wild places in case they dig out something wolfish before they’re ready.

I needed someone to say, nothing is as it seems.  There is no fire, no brimstone – you will find a lot of people waiting in the closet with you.  Before you have discovered its perfectly OK to be a little (or a lot) weird out there, you need somewhere to brew.

In a world where I spent 20 years trying to fit in, I am now trying my hardest not to! Weird is beautiful, wonderful, incredible and a whole lot of fun!

So if you would like to join me in my Closet, you are more than welcome:  I will be able to link you up to 20 years of discoveries, magick, love and laughter – and I will sit in the dark with you while you grow.

  1. This post resonates with me. It brought up the hurtful memories of pretentious high school crowds.
    Inclusion is so important, but feeling like you fit is even greater.
    I’m just now realizing that I placed too much value on having a crowd rather than knowing my own true self. I mourn that lost time.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts, I am glad this resonates with you. “Capturing the Magic of Ordinary Days” is such an inspiration! I love what I have read in your blog so far., and I will be back to read more. I’m glad to be blogging along with you this month :-)!

      ..I too mourn lost time, time that’s felt wasted – all 40 years of it – trying to fit into the wrong tribe. Belonging is so important. I have spent far too much time trying to fit into to places with people where I just don’t belong. I’m trying to do things differently this time – I’ve created a space and a place where I can be found. I’m waiting to be found, and hoping to be found by my people.
