is that you stay true to who you are no matter what....no matter the obstacles...no matter who tries to put you down....no matter the difficulties or joys that come your way....no matter if you are rich or poor....happy or sad....grieving or rejoicing....dancing or singing....sulking or wailing...it's all the same....find your center...keep your center....
if you don't know who you are then find out.....realize this changes as time goes on.....don't be afraid to let go of what doesn't work for you anymore.
find your tribe and enrich it with all the creative, positive, hopeful, joyful vibes that you possess.
make sure the people in this tribe do the same.....
learn about geese patterns and let it inspire you.........
go soak in nature...it feeds your soul

i am ready for change. ready for simplicity. ready for more outdoors, more nature, more sunshine, more fresh air. i am ready for more road trips, more painting, more time spent with friends. i am ready for more laughter, more smiling, a lighter heart. i am ready to get rid of the old, and embrace the new. i am ready to feel open to a new chapter, a new change, a new way of doing things. i am ready to embrace all that i am, all that i was, and all that i will be. i am ready to let things be as they are, and not what i think they should be. i am ready to throw the rule book out the door and align myself with what is right for me.

stop wishing and pining for all the things you don't have, and start appreciating the ones you do.

what do you want to leave behind? how do you want to live? what emotion do you want to live from...joy? excitement? tranquility? fun?
who are you?
who are you with others?
who are you when you are by yourself?
is it the same person?
when you look in the mirror what do you see? how do you feel?
what do you hang on to that is unhealthy? what habits have you created throughout the years that hinder your growth?
when you go to sleep tonight what will you wish for , for tomorrow?
every day is new. if you aren't exactly where you want to be, or who you want to be when you go to sleep tonight, start bright and early in the morning. what little tiny thing can you do to start? what step moves you forward? did you know that a huge part of starting your day is a choice....."i am going to find joy today".......that's it. be a joyful girl. be a joyful boy. either way, find joy. if you can't find it, create it.

~i am messy on the outside, but crave with a passion a clutter free mind, heart, soul, environment. i am working on it.
~i pick up people's energy easily but have learned to block it out and maintain my center with a fierceness and protectiveness like no other. this is also something i am working on consistently.
~i used to be terribly chaotic and intense, but have tried really hard to figure out what causes this, what prevents it, what things i absolutely have to do in order to maintain my equilibrium. sometimes this entails eliminating things, habits, behaviors, and yes even people from my life.
~i still feel like a kid. completely vulnerable, immature, still teetering and tottering around learning what works and what doesn't, still financially unstable (i hate this), still making mistakes, learning about responsibility and what i lack of it, etc etc.......
~i have a deep desire to stay true to who i am, and i will run away with a quickness from anything that goes against this flow.
~i'm still learning....about everything.

beautiful spring day here in georgia!
i'm taking a much needed break today. working from home makes it impossible for me to relax there, so i had to take a drive to the lake.
still simplifying. still cleaning. still organizing. much to report on later. right now, i'm gonna go sit on the dock. :)

How can anything new come into your life when you won't let go of the old, or what doesn't fit you or your life anymore, or what doesn't inspire you anymore, or what just isn't working?
I am still going through all my belongings, my art supply stash, everything.....it seems right when I get it situated the way I want it, I seem to find other things that I can get rid of. I guess I have changed into a more simplistic girl without me even realizing it. I envision my home in a beachy cottage, mostly white with splashes of color...very simple and comfortable. Anyway, I am off to clearance more, and add to the pile of goodwill/yard sale stash.
Take a look at my Etsy shop, which has EVERYTHING clearanced....massive amount of earrings under 5 dollars.
