Being Open

Follow your passion. It will lead you to your purpose. -Oprah

So with so many creative ideas, new and exciting projects in the works, life can start to feel overwhelming. With constant lists of “things to do” running through my head. constantly trying to stay present with my family, taking care of our life’s everyday moments and finding balance through it all.

I think that’s what I struggle with the most and constantly look for inspiration with… finding a balance in the everyday. The funny thing is that I am beginning to realize it constantly CHANGES. Things always seem to work out and the anxiety and stress I feel is most of the time actually no benefit to me or those I love. But it sure does feel like “getting things done” is what I need to be “doing”.

SO I have to slow down, even for a minute or two, rest in the stillness of what is and know that all is well. That what I am doing is enough and who I am loving is what truly matters the most. Making time for my little one and intentional family time is more important than checking off my “to do’s”. Being gentle with myself along the way.

Most of all let LOVE guide your life. COL. 3:14

But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day. ~Nicolas Sparks

Make time for those you hold close to your heart. Put down the “to do’s” and choose moments with those right in front of you. Listen with your whole heart. Life is fleeting and each day is always such a gift.

Sending love,
