For what it's worth:
it's never too late to be
whoever you want to be.
I hope you live a life
 you're proud of,
and if you find that
you're not,
I hope you have the
strength to start over.

"a gypsy soul isn't lost and looking.
a gypsy soul is one that loves movement
and finding the pulse in nature
and flight as a metaphor.
one who thinks everything is music.
one who know and holds an inward
and therefore outwardly
contagious kind of freedom."

As we settle into bed waiting to fall asleep,
 there are often two tracks our mind can take. 
Tonight let's not get on the train that replays our worries, 
challenges, weaknesses or mistakes. 
Instead let's board the train that replays our blessings,
 our strengths and our dreams for the days ahead. 
If your mind gets off-track, bring it back to more positive thoughts
 and fall asleep inviting dreams of confidence and hope.

                 but I love the photo and the words.

                                                  you are enough.

I don't think I love
very many things but
here are the ones 
I can think of:

I love the first sip
of coffee in the morning

I love reading someone
else's words and finding
a connection in them

I love the feeling a 
good song invokes

I love wondering

I love driving at night
with no destination

I love the gentle kind 
of sadness like a reminder
 that I can feel

There will always be battles
between the mind and the heart.
Between the things you know 
and the things you feel. Between 
what you want and what you need.
Between who you are and who
you want to BE. So remember,
tomorrow is a new day
and you will always have
a chance to succeed. Just
keep going and stay strong.

Every day, God gives us, as well as the sun, a moment when it is possible to change 
anything that is causing us unhappiness. The magic moment is the moment when a “yes” or 
a “no” can change our whole existence. Every day, we try to pretend that we do not see 
that moment, that it does not exist, that today is the same as yesterday and that tomorrow
will be the same too. However, anyone who pays close attention to his day will discover 
the magic moment. It might be hidden in the instant that we put the key in the door in the
morning, in the moment of silence after supper, in the thousand and one things that 
appear to us to be the same. This moment exists, a moment in which all the strength of 
the stars flows through us and allows us to perform miracles. 

- Paulo Coelho

There are times when I have no idea
what comes next & it’s the thing I’ve
come to love most about being alive:
leaning in to hear the invitation
of each day & feeling my whole
body melt when I say
yes, yes, yes.


it is a beautiful day.
simply because.
it's Mother's Day.
happy momma's day.
to my Tilda.
and to all of you.

You can't control everything.
Sometimes you just need to

Most of us wonder, worry and spend lots of emotional 
energy thinking about what's around the next
corner. As you begin to re-channel even some of
that energy into action steps leading towards your hopes
and dreams, you'll not only stop spinning your
wheels, you'll be co-creating what will be waiting 
 for you when you get there.
Begin with Yes

There’s a wonderful bit of Chinese wisdom that asks, “When
is the best time to plant a tree?” The answer is “20 years ago,
but the next best time is right now.” If you’re reading these
words, I am convinced they were meant for you, and our
timing is perfect.

beauty all the day of your life.
