LIGHTEN UP.

LIGHTEN UP
I remember loathing this phrase as a kid especially the times, none too pleased, I found it directed at myself. Over time i discovered that even with all its loaded ammunition we could all use a healthy dose of lightening up in more ways than one. So it's time for some spring cleaning and I am not just talking about swapping wool sweaters for tank tops or knit scarves for silk; washing the windows, emptying the cupboard, throwing away old magazines. These are all on the list of course. More importantly I need to dust the cobwebs from the corners of my mind. Winter lay like a heavy blanket and it's time to clear the senses, lighten the load and make way for new possibilities. As much as I love to nest and surround myself with all the comforts of home and inspiration to feed my creative soul it is necessary to shed some layers.

My brain is so rife with emotions, thoughts and ideas; a way too crowded inner dialogue eager to be silenced. I wish I could just hit the refresh button. If it were only that easy. I keep chanting the mantra simplify, simplify, simplify hoping it will stick. To help clear a path and maintain focus i've set some clear intentions for myself. To transform my dreams from fear and doubt, to hope and possibility, followed by action and results. My intention is to live through this process with dignity and grace. Here are just a few of my daily intentions...

Meditate.
























Explore.
Wander.
















Smile.
Be kind.
Revel in the moment.
















Take Care.
Enjoy nature.























Laugh out loud.
Steal a kiss.

If you're feeling stuck, disillusioned or just need to put a bit more wind in those sails set a new course for yourself. The seas can be rough but there is always a big blue sky in waiting.

happy day! xo

"To dream...the impossible dream...
To fight...the unbeatable foe...
To bear...with unbearable sorrow...
To run..where the brave dare not go...
To right the unrightable wrong...
To love...pure and chaste from afar...
To try...where your arms are too weary...
To reach...the unreachable star...

This is my quest, to follow that star...
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far..."
- Quixote
