3 Years Reflection

Finding Your Own Path . . .

Adventuring . . .

Journeying Along . . .

If you asked me three years ago am I living where I want to live, I would state I am making it work. Now I can state I am. I do think about the place I am at and the places I have been that make me a happier as well as a healthier being.

Creating

Are you being true to who you are and where you want to be?

  • What are you creating?
  • What are you making space for?

Take the time to go within yourself to reflect and ponder as well as make those life decisions and choices! 

Being you requires courage, but the freedom that comes from it will be worth it.

The more you show up as your authentic self, the more your life will flow.

Trust that who you really are is who the world needs. ~Shannon Kaiser

Ask yourself those million dollar questions too!

  • What are your “whys” in your needs?
  • What are you doing to live your life?
  • What is that ONE THING you really need or want as well as crave and desire?

What Truly Matters!

Cultivating

Do not forget the opportunity to experience growth! Make time for it for you and your whole being. It is important and a major part of the love and care you have for yourself. Really think about who you are as well as what you want to attract in living your life! 

  • Learning and developing.
  • Experiencing growth.
  • Gaining life experiences and memories.
  • Weaknesses into strengths.
  • Mistakes into successes.
  • Failures into opportunities.

Your personal growth comes within yourself! Believing, valuing and trusting yourself. That feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction. That coming full circle for completeness. Even when you are challenged you are growing!

Find that passion to be and to do! Being passionate in all you do is inspiring, motivating, fulfilling, satisfying, etc. Being open to trying new things and stretching your comfort zone. Going for what really speaks to your whole being!

It is okay to shift and adjust as well as change and transition! The hardest part is letting it happen naturally and not forcing it upon yourself. However, you do not have to settle either. It is about finding that balance and practicing the process. Really define what is truly important and is meaningful to you!

  • Possibilities and priorities.
  • Clarity and alignment.
  • Calmness and confidence.
  • Inspiration and passion.
  • Motivation and movement.
  • Curiosity and exploration.
  • Ponder and create.

What Makes You Happy and Moving to Your Own Beat!

Contributing

Think about . . .

  • What do you want to feel as much as possible?

Then send it out there to share with yourself and others!

  • What do you want others to feel when around you?

Find that “something” that gets you involved and engaged! Contribute and maybe even give a little dedication to it if it is something you really love. Find that “something” your own way too! You are the only one that knows what that looks like and how to go about it.

In contributing to yourself as well as others you are expanding, deepening, growing, experiencing, etc! You are being true to who you are by believing, valuing and trusting yourself. You find your drive and purpose in living your life. It is a process so ease into it and figure it out as you journey along!


Christmas Day 2017

Beach Time

A Holiday Tradition since moving South is to take time out to walk the beach.

I really enjoyed watching the pelicans plunging and feeding.


This Seagull was relentless in getting the Pelican’s catch! Get off my head!

Here’s to Stooping for Seashells! Remember to Take the Time to Slow Down and Savor the Moment.

Creating a Cozy Spot

Creating Comfort For You

How do you go about creating a cozy spot for you? Are you in the process of creating a cozy spot? or Do you already have one?

From clean and crisp to homey and stuff. From neutral to pops of color and everything in between. From symmetry to creative to everything in between. From calm to vibrancy.

From what you love and makes you feel good. From what you actually use. From the trends to making your own style. From what makes you happy and brings you joy.

For comfort and/or healing. For relaxation and rest. For release and to let go. For yourself to be.

Adding In the Comfort Essentials

How do you add in the comfort? What are your top essentials for comfort?

  • Music (i.e. music player, instrument, music box, etc.)
  • Softness (i.e. blankets, rugs, curtains, etc.)
  • Lighting (lamps, candles, natural and adjustable lighting, etc.)
  • Reading materials (books, magazines, journals, etc.)
  • Cushion (floor cushions, throw pillows, ottomans, etc.)
  • Bold Statements (think makes you happy and makes you feel good and gives you joy)
  • Fauna and Flora
  • Artistic and Creative (i.e. artwork, paint, pops of color, etc.)
  • Mirror and Metallic (adds depth)
  • Storage (clear up a bit of the clutter)
  • Texture (adds warmth along with depth)

Find your energy along with the space’s energy! Items that make your space livable and add that lived in feeling. Remember to switch up your space from time to time to keep if fresh and inviting! 

I have a few cozy spots I gravitate to.

  • Being in the kitchen cooking and experimenting.
  • Curling up in my favorite cozy spot with a great mystery.
  • Adding the extras to my bike to make it a comfort ride for my whole being.

I love adding in . . .

  • My photographs throughout my home.
  • The creative and unique along with pops of color and metallics.
  • Pillows and blankets.
  • Good lighting and how it does your whole being good.

Taking a Walk

On the Wild Side

Lettuce Lake Regional Park is a 240-acre Hillsborough County-run park just outside the city limits of Tampa, Florida. Located along the Hillsborough River. More than half of the park lies in the natural floodplain of the Hillsborough River. There is a hardwood swamp forest, hardwood hammocks and pine flatwoods. It provides a natural storage reservoir for floodwater and improves water quality.

A park in its natural state that is untouched and truly offers an experience of natural Florida. I recommend visiting the interpretive center for exhibits on the local vegetation and the birdlife and wildlife that call the park home. The BEST feature of the park is the 3,500 foot boardwalk! There is an observation tower too.
