Things are just flowing. And what I mean by that is, I got bangs for the first time since I was 18. And I feel more myself in them since the last time I dumped a silly boyfriend. Flowing. Because I've been happy with my outfits lately, which is honestly huge. Because I've decided that I'm going to start buying smaller amounts of higher quality clothing, rather than large amounts of cheap stuff that changes shape in the wash. And for some reason that felt like an epiphany. Well, maybe it was for me.

Flowing. Because I've finally had this liberating realization that I can do my thing, and other people can do theirs and neither of us needs to feel threatened. As long as there is no hurting or forcing others to change, I'm all for it. I reached down inside of myself and took out my fear of other ways of living, replacing it with appreciation. Instead of, "I've never tried that before, it must be scary," I think, "I've never tried that before, looks cool, tell me about it!" I suddenly want to know people instead of hide from them. It's all connecting. I'm feeling love, even for the disgruntled customers talking at me through the headset I wear 8 hours a day 5 days a week. Because rudeness generally stems from fear, and that's something I can help with.

Flowing. Because the energy I'm giving out to others seems to be something they can jive to, and I wouldn't really even care if it wasn't. That's correct, I just said I wasn't concerned with another person's opinion. Because I just used the word "jive." Because "30 Rock" is so funny.

Flowing. Because warm weather and smoothies from Roxberry just make sense. Because the sun stays out until 9 pm. Because I've finally come to comprehend the balance between setting boundaries and unconditional love. Because I have a plan. Sort of. At the very least a plan to make a more specific plan.


  1. Totally my cup of tea!

    "Because I've decided that I'm going to start buying smaller amounts of higher quality clothing, rather than large amounts of cheap stuff that changes shape in the wash."

    This has been my life lately. I have two huge bags of disfigured clothing I'm hoping to sell soon.

    Get it gurl

  2. Beautiful photos and words, as always. I always enjoy reading your blog :) xx take care

  3. This is awesome! Glad you are feeling good. It is nice when we have those moments of self realization. I have had many of those lately.

  4. I love this so much. I love that you're feeling like that. It motivates me to adopt a similar take on life.

    Quality over quantity is becoming my motto this year and not just for clothes but for food, relationships, beauty items and personal possessions. It's so good to declutter and focus on only the things you need.

  5. lovely photos, beautiful words.

  6. The things you say are so subtly profound. You have a lovely soul my dear. I would love to know you more.

  7. I'm so glad you're having a good week, those are always the best. I've been focusing on only doing things that matter a lot and putting my whole self into them. Instead of spending hours browsing the internet, I'm trying to write a page in my journal a day. Same goes for clothes and food and relationships... all that. It's nice to see someone else with similar thoughts!

    Gorgeous pictures! xoxo


I love reading what you have to say about what I had to say. Feel free to leave those thoughts here.
