Being Beautiful ... On the Inside

Lately, I have been doing research to see what REALLY speaks to me - Sayings, Quotes, Pictures Etc ... I loved this thinking bubble ... "WHAT YOU DO, THE WAY YOU THINK, MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL". These are the things that I think we need to hear, more of.

I hear positive and negative feelings towards getting older - I am glad to be in my early 40s - I am proud to say that I have lived a bit and realize the things that are important. I am pleased that I have held close the people who matter. I feel the unconditional love that you cannot put a price on.

I consider myself lucky for true friends and family. I am grateful for what I have, and where I am heading in my creative life.

Where are you headed?

  4. Thanks, Carlanda ~ We almost moved to Oregon back in 2009. My husband interviewed there, but it just never worked out. Oregon has been compared to living in Massachusetts - They have the same latitude, so they have 4 Seasons etc ... I am sure you will love it. Yes, I can relate to you when you say you want to spend more time doing the things you love ... I feel in many ways, I am just "Beginning", also ... So great hearing from you!

  6. I can really relate to this post! I am in my mid 40's now and just graduated college ! Whoo Hoo, so I feel even though I started many years ago on this creative journey it has been a very slow process and I was sidetracked and derailed so many times...but now I finally know what I want and have definite goals and plans. Something I never had before. I am happier than I have ever been with myself and my life :) thanks for your post!

  8. Thanks, Kristen ... Congrats on your new accomplishments ... I also feel I should have started on my journey earlier, but I cannot look back, only forward. I am trying things, making things, sketching, photography, writing - Things that make my heart sing - Glad we both found what makes us come alive! Great hearing from you!
