Let’s Take 5 shall we?

Happy Friday,

I’m in Beaufort, NC today prepping for our retreat goers who are joining us this afternoon for Cultivating Creativity Seaside. It’s been joyful getting to the beach early and making sure this place is cozy and inviting for the women joining us today. I wish you could be here!

Let's get onto this week's 5 things!

1st) One of my most important discoveries recently is using my morning pages as a space to talk with my intuition, inner-being, soul, (whateva, you want to call it). This practice has been personally significant and useful. I heard about the practice from Podcaster Jess Lively. She’s been doing “Client sessions” on her podcast recently and I think you’ll enjoy it. This one “Thriving solo and letting go of labels with Danielle Dillard” illustrates what she is doing well.

2nd) Did you see my article this week about “Humbling Magic”? A friend Aliene De Souza Howell sent me the most gorgeous work of art. She is amazing. If you want a piece of her work you can learn more about her here.

3rd) For this weekend’s retreat my retreat co-leader Betsy brought down the most interesting Godess cards for us to share with participants. You know my affinity for the animal spirit cards, but these Journey Cards: Multiculctural Goddesses and Imagined Saints for guidances, epiphanies and revelations are really beautiful and intruiging.

4th) I’m super super picky about who I follow on instagram. I want to see beautiful pictures, and uplifting images and not too many IG stories. I curate my IG feed to be as beautiful and uplifting as I can. Do you do that? I adore following @She_Explores because I see beautiful pictures and they let me know about podcast episodes I’m sure I won’t want to miss. Like this gorgeous photo makes it certain I’ll be listening to this week’s podcast.

5th) Quote I'm pondering these days “Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world. Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements that they have in their own minds.” -Don Miguel Ruiz (The four agreements)

Happy Friday!
