stop the excess.
stop the need.
stop closing your eyes and your mind and your heart.
stop the crazy want.

Just Do It.


Don't just talk about it, do it. Dreams are sometimes unfullfilled ideas, so stop believing in fairy tales and {enjoy} life.

Come What May.

Look at that. The end of May is here already. Wow. This year has flown by... it's amazing.

William Ellery Channing :To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.

Yummy Me.

Inspire: Always Hope

monday- goals that matter
tuesday-overcoming fears
wednesdays-expecting miricles
thursday-taking care of myself
fridays- getting and staying in love
saturdays-juggling breakables
sunday- counting my blessings

I'm an overcommitted, out-of-balance, sleep deprived woman, constantly trying to weed out the good from the great so that I can be, experience, give, share, teach, learn and soak in all that is best and needed (and even wanted) for my soul!

Be Inspried. Pass It On.

Do what makes you happy and be with with people who make you smile!
Daily OM- Understanding the other angles strengthens us. When we look at our lives from all sides, we shed light on the big picture, giving ourselves access to many points of view."

Life Tales.

Hard work can be artistic, but sunny and beautiful. I understand life as art.
simple as that


"Treat everyone you meet each day as though it were their last day on earth."

Everyday Beauty.

This week I want to share some thoughts with you about capturing life: the life of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

I'm trying to dig a bit deeper to capture my moments that linger on the fringe of my memories. I feel like I may have lost connection with pieces of my heart that are willing to stand up and have their story told.

Beautiful because…

Because I {enjoy} life the way I [enjoy] a good piece of cheesecake.

Because I’m a member of the “Happy People Club.” Walk with me. Happy is my nature.

Because I think. I think about life, the world, the arts, connections…I’m always thinking and assembling life’s puzzle pieces.

Because I thrive on learning. I love learning how the universe works, how humans evolved to this current state, how history brought us to where we are now. I love learning what science can tell us about nature, why we think some things are beautiful and some are not, why we cringe at others’ pain and cry at others’ sorrows. Why we connect with music.

Because I think questions are good.

Because no matter what anyone else wants me to be, or what society claims is the “right” or “trendy” way, I like myself. I don’t change to meet anyone else’s standards.

Because I am confident.
Because I have integrity.
Because I work hard.
Because I love life.

This is me.

Behind every successful woman lies a tale of self-reliance, persistence, and the joy of following one's heart.
I'm a empowering, smart, artistic and unstoppable women!

Now Swear To Tell The Truth, And The Whole Truth

Whole Living.

Ten Thoughts on Whole Living.

1. Your home is more than the sum of its walls. Make it a sacred space.
2. Creativity is a lifestyle, not simply an activity. Let is expand you.
3. True forgiveness springs from love, not regret.
4. Learn something new. Emphasize the trying, not the succeeding.
5. Spend some time in the dirt. You'll be amazed at what nature can inspire. (Totally relevant to this week's AEzine.)
6. You don't have to have a perfect body to feel great in it.
7. Define yourself by who you are, not the roles you play.
8. Find rejuvination in five minutes of silence.
9. Contribute to abundance. If you no longer need something, pass it on.
10. Find direction in your life by looking where you want to go, not where you don't.

Tearing this one out and putting it up on my inspiration board. Great reminders of how I want to live.

Just be giggly. Just be free. Just be close. Just be excited. Just be.


“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Wow, isn't that so true!!! SMILE, BE KIND, BE GENUINE, BE COMPLIMENTARY!!!! We never know what true acts of kindness will do for others (plus it just feels good to be nice :) )

Karen Beacon : Behind all creation is silence. Silence is the essential condition, the vital ingredient for all creation and all that is created. It is a power in its own right. The artist starts with a blank canvas-silence. The composer places it between and behind the notes. The very ground of your being, out of which comes all your thoughts, is silence. The way to silence is through meditation. When you arrive in your own silence, you will know true freedom and real power. Stop, take a minute, and listen to the silence within you today. Then be aware of what disturbs you inner silence. It could be negative thought, memories or sensations. And when you are aware, you will know what is draining your creative power, and you will know what needs to change....on the inside.

Life is Love.

Life is Love.
The pace of my life is starting to leave me without appreciation for what is important until it is too late. So I need a change - I need to change my mind and I think that will change my life.

Life is's all about finding and losing the moments that make us who we are...

Happy Friday.

This week blew by. It's a sunny morning on the last day of the week and it's a very good day.


Everything comes down to perspective. You'll find whatever you look for - because it's always how you see thing.

Continuous. One thing to the next to the next to the next... Integrity. Compassion. Motivation. Inspiration. Live continuously. Interpret that to fit.
