Shucks. Time flies hey. Let’s see, where are we now. These last few months I have spent quite a bit of time pouring out business ideas and making contacts. It has been really exciting and incredibly frustrating all at the same time. But I can feel that I am getting closer to something moving in a big way. If nothing else, I have made some new buddies – entrepreneurial dreamers, travelers and get-things-doners. So… I’ll be doing my best to rub elbows til we can start this fire. Anyhoo, short post. But yea. Better run. Cheers.

Pursuing your passions gives others permission to pursue their own. Can you just imagine a world full of things created in passion? I mean, think about it! Kids are created in passion and they’re AWEsome! What other awesomeness could we be making?

There IS a Horizon

landho - Hugo Kerr

I have so much to be thankful for right now. Where do I begin. I am SO incredibly grateful for having discovered YouNeedABudget.com.  This program is a total game changer.  Frankly, I think that a lot of my not feeling like a big girl stems from my mishandling of money.  I know how to make it – now I’m learning how to make it work for me 😉  There is no limit to my ability to gush over this system.  Just… go check it out.  It is, legitimately, Fun. New friends – super cool new friends!  Papa has set some pretty stellar people in my path lately and Im really loving it.  It’s nice to feel like a community is growing around me again.  It’s nice to dig in.  I can’t wait to see what we create in this next year!! Finally I have a decent, and functional facade for this site!  I feel WAY more relaxed now that I have something that seems to fit.  Hopefully I will pour more into it now that it exists.  I just discovered this super rad app by Vimeo called Cameo and I’m kind of in love with the idea of it.  So hopefully I…

Been a Minute

Oops, skipped a few days. Let’s see…. Pa helped me surpass my crazy financial goals over the weekend…. My pastor sent a recommendation for me to attend this course I’m really interested in…. I’ve been getting phenomenal feedback on my music and especially on an arrangement I wrote…. Today my rolfer noted that my structural alignment has improved – and suggested some awesome things to research to further my personal development. These are all great blessings and great encouragements that may or may not seem of value to you, dear reader, but which each mean the world to me. Oh man oh man. Also, there was a cool thing I noticed myself doing over the weekend. There was a night that was particularly terrible, psychologically (work can get pretty stressful), and I caught myself listing out blessings from days gone by as I rode my bike home. Like, ‘okay, today kind of sucked, but I SAW Your hand here, here and here. AND I remember last week when You did This thing, and last month and last quarter and last year when You did this, this and this…. Therefore I AM blessed. Because You HAVE blessed me in the Past,…

Jewelry Cards

Yesterday and today were both great. Let’s see… Yesterday I got to cut really awesome looking jewelry cards for when my stuff goes into stores. Im so proud of them!! Afterward my new fwends invited me to do yoga with them!! It’s just… Im still so excited about the cool people who have been stepping into my life lately!! I then came home to an amazingly delicious carob cherry banana smoothie and a few hours of designing blueprints from my dream the other day (and a few BuzzFeed videos). Overall, it was a blessedly chill evening.   Today, ha. I slept in and then met an awesome and encouraging friend for breakfast (his lunch/snack I would assume). He is such a great guy to talk, both he and his wife. They help me to dream when I forget to. I feel so blessed to be friends with them ^_^ Once we parted ways, I went back to my lasers and the person before me had not shown up so I got an extra 45 minutes to play with!! I made some awesome new jewelry: a few Piccasso pieces, some dragon fruits, watermelon slices, peaches, some more Watashi Wa earrings, even…

Best Day Yet

27 January 2015

Wow. Yea. So even if I HADNT just decided it’d be a good idea to reflect on blessings daily I think I would have logged in tonight. Yesterday was Glitterbell’s awesome birthday party. Today was just. Ahhh… Amazing!! SO amazing in SO many ways. — I had THE bestest dream – quite complex to be true – ran more like a vision than a dream. Got up and wrote it all down – like, ALL the details and blueprints and such. — I got up to write at 8AM!! Yes, 8 in the MORNING! Like, the SUN was still out! Took a while to write out the whole dream, then did yoga and made a banana smoothie, packed my backpack and LEFT THE HOUSE by 1PM!!!! Like, the SUN was still out!! Rode my bike to Barton Springs and got a KAYAK!!! FINALLY!!! After yearning for it for Ages, today in all beautiful 70degree weather, riding my bike with my hair blowing in the wind and my arms outstretched in thanks, I finally went and got out a kayak! I didnt exactly exert myself or anything, just really lazily paddled out to the main river, and then floated around for…

Okay okay, I like it when people look for me…

First of all, there have been so many blessings since my last update that it’s just… silly. I could easily make a short update every day. In fact, maybe I should. It’s good to LOOK for blessing, you know? …Instead of getting used to them, taking them for granted to a point where you no longer notice them? Perhaps I should make this a daily recap. Morning Pages in the morning, Blessing Jar at night? Hm. Perhaps I shall. We’ll see. Anyway, I’ve been doing The Artist’s way for about 4 months now – it is amazing and has completely shifted my life – I am eternally grateful to my Artist Fairy Godmother for introducing me to it. But… oh rats, I just forgot why I brought that up. Hang on… I just got home from a beautiful birthday party at this GORgeously designed upper room of a restaurant downtown. Exposed woods and bricks, light fixtures over flowing with hanging plants, moss growing on the walls – Oh man I wish I could live in it. It was breathtaking. But the really lovely part of it – for me anyway – was that I was invited? It may sound kind…
