In January my first Muse Mantra Monday was Anne Frank, I feel very proud of this Muse Mantra because of the time I spent focusing on Anne's photographs, the connection I had to her and her journal writing.
So imagine my surprise to recently be introduced to a modern day Frank. Recently, I met 24 year old Australian, Caroline Frank in Jerusalem at a friend's family celebration. She had taken a huge leap of faith and was accepted for an Internship at The Jerusalem Post in Tel Aviv. Transforming her life as a community journalist in Perth to the hustle and bustle of the big city of Tel Aviv.
We hit it off immediately.
On so many levels.
We shared experiences of self healing and our spirituality.
It felt like we had known each other for a very long time.
The obvious next step for me was to create a Soul Portrait and Muse Mantra for Caroline.
Caroline very kindly offered to answer a few question for me as this was a very new experience for her.
1. How did you feel choosing your photos to send to me?
I enjoyed picking the photos but it was tough to pick five. I wanted to choose photos that represented my authentic self and feel I achieved that, especially including the photo of me with a notebook and pen in my journalistic state.
2. How about answering the questions I asked, how was that?
I love writing but I have never really thought about the colours that represent me before and my colour story. That was something different and made me think consciously about what I wear.
3. In thinking about your mantra, can you say how you came to this ? Where does it come from?
I live by the phrases "Live the moment" and "What have you got to lose?" because life is too short to be worrying about insignificant things. After all, you only live once (#YOLO) - so live it up while you still can!
4. In now seeing your muse mantra, how do you want to use it?
I am using my muse mantra as the background to my laptop and my mobile phone. I want to see it as often as I can to be reminded of its meaning.
5. How would you say you feel about yourself now that I have reflected back the essence of you?
I enjoyed seeing the bright colours and loved the purple shoulder bag - it was like looking at my true self. My soul feels happy.
