Be Still

Today, go where you feel most alive! Surround yourself with friends and family that build you up and hold your heart with both hands. Honor YOU, by giving yourself permission to follow your heart and do what you love.

It is the little things that mean the world to me.  A beautiful bloom, housing a tiny friend, instantly tickles my spirit.  A real letter, arriving in the mail, warms my heart.  Reaching out to others, with a simple smile or gesture, brings me pure joy.

Today, BE STILL while you embrace your whole, beautiful self with both hands.

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

Be Still

 Last week, I spent 5 beautiful days with Mother Nature.  Time away brings me such clarity and peace.  Life is truly a balance between what we can control and what we cannot.

I created a list of areas that are an important part of BALANCE in my life.  This list is a guide and acts as a visual reminder for me daily.  Taking time to reflect on life is so important.  The following list is a wonderful reminder of the necessities for “Living in Balance”.

  • Friends & Family
  • “Me” Time
  • Nutrition & Exercise
  • Intellectual Stimulation
  • Sense of Purpose/Spirituality
  • Creativity
  • Rest
  • Career

Be Still…ask yourself if your life is in BALANCE.  Are there areas you could GROW, allowing yourself to discover an even stronger BALANCE? Focus on the life you truly desire for yourself and make sure your decisions align with those desires.  Only then will you truly find peace and balance…

Irises have a beauty like no other.  The Iris is named after the Greek Goddess Iris, a messenger of the Gods who was thought to use the rainbow as a bridge between Heaven and Earth.  The Greeks believed that the rainbow was actually created by the many hued blooms of the Iris.    This unique flower can be found in virtually every part of the world, sharing the message of faith, hope and wisdom.

Here are a few of my favorite Irises, from our gardens…

Nature holds a message for us all.  Today, as you take in the beauty of Mother Earth, listen closely to the message she has to share with you…

“We often forget that we are nature.  Nature is not something separate from us.  So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.” ~Andy Goldsworthy

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
