You Choose – Week 18

This week’s pick is about being serene. Journaling always centers me. It helps me clear my thinking. Gives me perspective. Helps me remember what I love most and what matters most. It’s the way the wiser version of me comes out.

little shimmers on this one:

You Choose - Week 17

This week’s pick is about being brave. It says “you have to be open to new possibilities, and take steps towards being brave so that you fee more alive.” See how I worked so many of my core desired feelings into that one? :)

You Choose – Week 16

This week’s pick is about serenity. There’s nothing like the outdoors and tall trees and soft, gentle wind to remind me of what matters most. To bring me back to the place of serenity and calm and connection with nature. It always grounds me and I wish I did it more often.

just a few shimmers on this one:

You Choose – Week 15

This week’s pick is about being open. believing that wonderful things are happening all the time and can happen at any time. Being open to receive them. Noticing them when they do. Allowing all of the goodness to wash over you. And opening your arms wide to receive it all.

and it shimmers :)

You Choose – Week 14

This week’s pick is about abundance. An abundance of kindness. Being open to receiving it and to giving it. Being kind even when the other person might not fully deserve it. Being kind for no reason. Being kind without waiting for anything in return. Being kind because it makes me feel wonderful to be kind. My goal this year is always be as kind as I can be, and then be a bit kinder than that.

no shimmer on this page. :)

You Choose – Week 13

This week’s pick is another serenity pick. I used to absolutely adore taking baths. I remember, as a kid, I’d draw myself a bath, full of bubbles, put some fruit in a bowl and dive in with a wonderful book. I’d spend hours in the bath. Until the water got so chilly that I had to get out. I used to love the bubbles. I used to love the calm that spread over my skin, my body in that water. I could use more of that any time.

here’s to embracing serenity.

You Choose - Week 12

This week’s pick painting. I love paint. I love the feel of it on my fingers. I love how alive it makes me feel. I love color. I love learning. I love its texture. I love how it makes me feel. I am so grateful that I discovered mixed media and never looked back. Here’s to painting for the rest of my life!

You Choose - Week 11

This week’s pick is another honor for serenity. There is nothing like books to bring peace into my life. A cup of tea and a good book can get me through the toughest days. Books can help me forget everything. They can help me find my center. They make me feel full. Grateful. Serene. There’s not one moment in my life that I am not near at least five books. I never, ever leave the house without my books. Ever. They have always been my very best friends in the world. I am deeply grateful.

You Choose - Week 10

This week’s pick is about feeling alive. No matter what people say, there are some people who are just doers. I value presence and I value serene. But I also value getting things done. It’s who I am. It’s what brings me joy and fulfillment. I love learning. I love growing. It makes me feel alive. It gives me joy. And I love feeling that.

You Choose - Week 9

This week’s pick is to being alive. Being brave. Choosing to fly. Being edgy. Being who you are when no one’s watching. Wearing your wings. Spreading them and flying again and again. I wanted to do something different this time. I used more black than I usually would. I have mixed feelings about it. It’s feeling edgy to me. But also not like me. Not my usual soft and happy colors. Sometimes it’s good to try new things.

You Choose - Week 8

This week is all about abundance. About glitter and leaving a trail of it. Sharing the good. Sprinkling it all over everyone. Being generous with everything. My time, my kindness, my love, my sweetness, my patience. My kindness. Here’s to sprinkling glitter every single day.

You Choose - Week 7

This week, I decided to remember serenity. I feel like this year, I’ve done a good job honoring the alive and possibly even open, but not so much on serene. I want to take moments to embrace peace. Moments to sit with a blanket and some tea. To watch the sea. To honor being here. Being now. To honor the privilege of my life. This week is all about remembering that.
