“As. You. Are.
Stronger than you know.
More beautiful than you think.
Worthier than you believe.
More loved than you can ever imagine.
Passionate about making a difference.
Fiery when protecting those you love.
Learning. Growing. Not alone.
Warm. Giving. Generous.
Quirky. Sexy. Funny. Smart.
Flawed. Whole. Scared. Brave.
And so, so, so.much.more.
Be Strong. Be Confident. Be You.”
~Tia Sparkles Singh, 2011

Dedicated to the feminine side of life in each of us, male and female.
The swan, being a feminine totem, gives strength, courage, and determination, while also lending grace and gentleness in its demeanor. Inspired through empowering dreams last night after visiting with the swan yesterday.

Composed in Photoshop with layers, photographs, textures, backgrounds, lighting effects, blending modes and various filters.

Swan image photographed in Burlingham, New York, USA.

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
~Mark Twain
