make a WISH …

The difference between a flower and a weed is judgement.” -unknown

Came across this fabulous quote on Instagram recently. Nature is beautiful in every shape and form and color … ok, in every single way.

If you can see beauty in this photo, you can see beauty in you. No judgement necessary.


the SUN is our GUIDE …

Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.  -Thich Nhat Hanh

have FUN guys …

Creativity is intelligence having fun. -Albert Einstein

Albert must have been one fun dude. Now, it’s our turn. Go create something. Anything. If you need some ideas, check out this word collage I created a while back! You can’t even imagine how much FUN that was to make ;)

as GOOD a place as any …

Just put those anywhere. Oh, here’s some lovely bushes and trees. That’ll be a perfect spot to throw a bunch of broken down crates. This isn’t a typical place for these objects, but if we did everything “typically,” life would be really fucking boring. Plus they add some serious character to those plants!

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” -Dr. Wayne Dyer

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?!?!

the right WORDS at the right TIME …

I was laying on my yoga mat last night and asked the universe for a sign that I’m going to move past this stressful confusing unsettled place I am in and that I am on the right path. Post-namaste, I slowly put my props away and rolled up my mat and on my way to the door, passed by the Buddhist wisdom of the day book and read this. I suppose that’s my sign, huh?!

“When faced with a feeling of stagnation and confusion, it may be helpful to take an hour, an afternoon, or even several days to reflect on what it is that will truly bring us happiness.”

I am doing a number of things right now that would make me happy. Yet, I feel so frazzled in all of them, that they fail to excite me or make me happy. Maybe I need to cut back on some things; maybe I need to give myself a break and be patient through this life-changing time; maybe I need to shift my attitude. Ok, it’s all of these things (and more?!). Time to journal and reflect on what truly makes me happy … because without knowing that, how could I move forward on that ‘right path’? Riiiight?

think ABSURDLY …

weathered wood quote02

Love this quote and concept. Be different. Be daring. Be you.

Note: My hope with this blog is to help inspire others, and sometimes (ok, all the time) it’s more to remind myself of what I need to do in my own life !
