Hello Summer

"Life, now, was unfolding before me, constantly and visibly, like the flowers of summer that drop fanlike petals on eternal soil." ―Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy

Summer is finally here, the kiddo is out of school, and I took my first vacation in a couple years. I was finally able to get away for a full week, to do nothing but relax and enjoy myself. Something that was much needed, and much appreciated. Last year, I had a vacation planned, but my daughter was hospitalized and we had to cancel. This year, after many days of praying, we made it. We went on vacation!

STOP Dreaming


Happy Thursday folks!  For me, today has been full of self encouragement, self motivation, and planning.  Lately I've found myself coming up with ideas and concepts, and then talking myself out of them for reasons to include: not enough time, I'm already doing too much, how will people receive my idea, etc.  Well, as of today, I decided that I will make the time, I'm not doing too much, and whether people catch on to the vision today, or tomorrow, they will catch on.  Having said that . . . . I'm going for it, and I encourage you to do the same.
