just say THANK YOU … 

This is how to accept compliments. Just say “thank you.” It’s that simple, and we make it waaaay more complicated (by explaining where you got the shirt someone just told you they really liked, or how much the shirt cost, or turning it back on them saying you like their shirt too…). Just say “thank you.” I was taught this only recently by my life coach. At 37 years old, I finally knew how to accept a compliment. And also learned that when you simply say thank you and embrace the compliment, you will receive more compliments. Funny how that works. So many people don’t know how to accept their partners praise, yet question why they don’t get complimented more often (I’ve soooo been that person!). It goes both ways. Just say THANK YOU. And see what shifts, in you and in those around you.

What’s that? You think my blog is awesome. Thank you.

ace of HEARTS …

I almost forgot to share these cards today! However, they would still apply to tomorrow and the next day and every day, forever. This is one of the many creative things I get to do at my awesome job. For those of you who don’t know, I work at lululemon and made these cards for our guests to attach to their Valentine’s gifts of fabulous workout gear. Now a couple of the sayings make waaaaaay more sense, right? ;)

Happy Day of Love, every day, forever.

CREATE yo’self …

Make your ideal life yours. You can choose to have whatever you desire in life, so start creating!!!

This card was given to me by my friend, Jordan, and it couldn’t have been any more perfect for me and perfect for where I was in my life. And, it still very much applies now … and always will as the creating will never end. But why would I want it to?!?!

mom LOVE …

My mom created me and I created this card – that’s an even exchange, right?

Now I know what you’re all thinking … “Dawn, you should really sell your adorable greeting cards.” I know, I know. You guys are so sweet. Thank you. I do love making cards and sharing that love with others. Enough about me though, let’s talk about this SPECIAL day …

So, this is obviously my Mom’s Mother’s Day card I made for her. Thank you mom for making me a part of this world and for supporting me in all my crazy experimental life endeavors, allowing me to be the person I am today. Thank you for being so loving and huggy … a little (ok, big) something I need to soak up from her and take into my own life.

A beautiful day to all Moms out there, in person or in spirit. XOXOXOXO
