I'm trusting to really listen and trust myself today.
I'm grateful to the people in my life who taught me what being brave truly is.
I'm inspired by creativity + the willingness to jump without a net.

I Run.

This is totally something that my family would do, and we would look good doing it!

Trust. Gratitude. Inspiration. Friday.

Today I am trusting that the novel I have inside of me has a place in this world, and that despite any fear or self-doubt I might have, I will feel the fear + do it anyway.

Grateful: Today I am grateful for the peaceful + uneventful resolution of a potentially big obstacle in my life.

Inspired: Today I am inspired by so many of the success stories I have read online of people in similar situations as I currently am in - I am so encouraged about the path I am taking right now thanks to so many who are willing to take the time to share about their own journeys.

Fairly Magical.

It's no secret that the last couple of months have been a little more trying than usual around here. I'm not great with hiding the truth or keeping secrets.
I feel something - I say it.
I need something - I find it.
If I am unhappy with something - I will not hide that fact either.
Sometimes it gets me into trouble + sometimes it might make me look like a dark + evil bad guy - but, I'm never a mystery + a brooding villian is all a matter of perspective.

Ordinary Courage.

Today I am:
Trusting - That there is a reason why new people come into your life--that there is something to be learned, and joy to be gained--even if the circumstances are less than ideal.
Grateful - I am grateful for every single blessing in my life - and that's every day, not just today. For today I'm grateful (for one thing) that the sun is shining
Inspired- I am inspired by the incredible people around me who are willing to be honest, authentic, and vulnerable.

Because She Changed Our Lives.

Four Like Ever.

Taking Flight.

Lately I've been:
Loving the new Macbook.
Enjoying technology. I'm getting geekier and geekier by the minute.
Creating a summer schedule. Life + Art + Writing is calling me more and more these days. Like a compulsion.
Exploring boundaries.
Trusting in true love + art + words + friends who are following their bliss, leaping fearlessly toward their rawness, their wild pieces, their destiny. It's pretty cool to witness these times of transformations in those I hold close.
Thinking about my life as a mom. What it will look like. How I will be. How I will love. This decision has been such a back + forth for me, that I sometimes wish the answer was clearer, that I just knew.

Just happy.
Just slow + low + happy +fulfilled + not stressed out + not busy.
Life is good.
Life is full.

Bursts Of Joy.

I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust+ gratitude+ inspirations. Is mighty to save a glimpse on a page?

Are you fire + fiery?

Are you sacred + beautiful?

Are you holy?

I thought I had figured you out?

What do I know?

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.

Summer Breezes.

Yesterday was nice. I managed to get some sorting and figuring done. Good enough. I'm getting ready to make some changes on the blog. Any suggestions?

Stow Away.

Every day – together with the sun – God gives us a moment in which it is possible to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day we try to pretend that we don’t realize that moment, that it doesn’t exist, that today is just the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if you pay attention, you can discover the magic instant. It may be hiding at the moment when we put the key in the door in the morning, in the silence right after dinner, in the thousand and one things that all seem the same to us. This moment exists – a moment when all the strength of the stars passes through us and lets us work miracles.
