Simple Question

MINDFUL MONDAY : March 11, 2019

This week I invite you to ask yourself this simple question: ⁣

🌞⁣ What can I be excited about today?

⁣Even if you have a lot on your plate, setting an intention like this helps train your brain to LOOK for things to be excited about. ⁣

🌴⁣ You might start noticing small things like your husbands beautiful smile, the ease of talking with your best friend, the music you have queued up for your workouts, or the podcasts you look forward to listening to (*totally digging on The Jealous Curator & Rachel Hollis’s RISE podcasts right now). ⁣ 🌞⁣

It’s like building a muscle. The more you do it, the more your brain will find things to be excited about. ⁣ 🌞⁣

Give it a try! Share one thing you can be excited about this week with me in the comments. ⁣

Dragonfly Painting

TERRIFIC TUESDAY : March 12, 2019

🌱⁣ I’ve been weaving back and forth between my watercolor and acrylic paints. I learn so much about myself from each medium. Each one’s uniqueness allows me to foster parts of myself I wish to develop. ⁣ ⁣🌿⁣

Amazement

WISDOM WEDNESDAY : March 13, 2019

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life, I was a bride married to AMAZEMENT.” ~Mary Oliver⁣ 🦋⁣

Geneen Roth says, “Being married to amazement means showing up in the only place from which to experience it: here, NOW, in this very moment.”

⁣ 🦋⁣ Just the idea of being married to AMAZEMENT opens up my mind and heart space. 😊Simple things I’m appreciating right now are my new Daniel Smith watercolor paints.

I’ve been weaving back and forth between my tropical seascapes and some abstract work. I love experimenting and not worrying about the outcome. I believe it’s through this place of play that you learn new things. ⁣

🦋⁣ What is AMAZING you today?⁣

Truth

THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY: March 7, 2019

I’ve SO been craving a little sunshine 🌞and decided that even though it was only 40 degrees here in CT yesterday I would eat my lunch outside in the garden. It felt so peaceful listening to the birds for a bit. I’m excited for the earth to thaw and for my garden to start showering me with color like this peony. It was a new addition to my garden last year and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! 😊 ⁣

🌸⁣ The painting is an original painting is called, “TRUTH”. It’s part of my Endless Summer Blooms Collection and was inspired by the creamy shades of peach and pink found in this peony. These colors that make me SO HAPPY! ⁣ 🌸⁣ You can find “Truth” in the shop . It measures 5 x 7 inches, and comes signed and matted in an acid free mat that would easily fit into a frame that matches your decor.⁣

FABULOSO FRIDAY:

“Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish good in yourself.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda ⁣

🌸⁣ Have the most lovely weekend everyone! 😊⁣
