What a wonderful week it's been and I'm so happy it's over and I'm shutting down and heading to the beach this afternoon!! DOING A HAPPY DANCE!!!
Here are this week's 5 things for you...
1) I made a playlist for you! Last Sunday it was pouring down rain and I had all the feels. I think this Spotify playlist Rainy Day Feels sums it up pretty well. I hope you'll enjoy it.
2) I've been a workaholic recently and my favorite way to shut off is to read. Do you like YA, young adult literature? I do when it's good. I devoured this book "The Truth about Forever" by Sarah Dessen, it's about a young girl processing grief after her dad passes away and has a little love story too.
3) Because I'm a voracious reader I'm also halfway through "Educated" a memoir by Tara Westover about her life growing up without being sent to school, or homeschooled. She grew up in a Mormon community and her dad rejected anything that made the family reliant on the government. This book is mindblowing and Tara is a beautiful writer! Savor this book with me.
4) The podcast that was getting me through my middle of the day way too hot to be out running runs was Snap Judgment, one episode that got me was called "The suitcase of love and shame"
5) I made you a mediation! This week's mediation was Miracles are Natural.
If you're craving the beach like I am these days. Join me in Beaufort, NC this October for "Cultivating Your Creative Spirit Seaside". Be sure to get in on the early bird special while it lasts!

“if I had such an opportunity to pass on wisdom, I’d tell her to stop worrying so much about hurting other people’s feelings and to be true to herself above all else”
“To be yourself and own it with fearless confidence! Never listen to what that kid on the bus had to say to you and never force yourself to do something you never wanted to.”
Trust the process. Every day since those days had a purpose, a deeper meaning. Everything is a stepping stone. Something I still have to remind myself daily.
“Stand up for what you know is right. Read more, pray more, learn more, lay your worries down, and always be kind – even when you don’t want to.”
“sometimes the most beneficial way to love someone is to say no. Both my parents taught me the value of healthy boundaries to protect my energy and creativity and how to be bright and beautiful in a world hell bent on attempting to control our minds and spirits.”
“Everything you need is already within you.” Continue breathing life to the light that is within you. Even when that light goes dim inside of you, you always have the chance to make it brighter, warmer and extend that light to all of those around you.
“I’m so glad you were too stubborn and too curious to quit! I’m so proud of you! “
“I am excited about coming to the shop each day. I have a good host of regulars and I meet new people every day. I love connecting people, and have a habit of introducing people. I’ve even done some successful romantic match-making!”
Feeling cold, wet and hoping to fight off a cold or flu? Then this is the recipe for you!
“By helping people understand themselves, we begin to foster more effective communication and a deeper understanding of one another. I love helping people learn to leverage their strengths for success both in the workplace and in their personal lives.”
