THANK YOU!

thankful heart - 7-27-15

My heart has been full of thankfulness today!!  Yesterday was our annual open house in the studio and I was overwhelmed with all those who came, have taken an interest in the studio and support us by signing up for classes, shopping and just plain ol’ loving our space.  When I set off on this journey of building a place where women can come, relax, take a break and feel safe while creating together – I never dreamed we’d be HERE!  I’m soooo very thankful!!  Thank YOU to each of you who came to the open house and helped to make it a special day for all!!!!

Today was easy, some days we wake up and it’s not so easy to feel thankful.  There are days when the feelings plain ol’ aren’t there, period!  A thankful heart is so important.  It’s hard to have a bad day if you’re focused on your blessings and are thankful for them, no matter how big or small.  Work on developing the habit of thankfulness.  Start your day with it.  When you wake up, turn your focus on what you have to be thankful for.  Have troubles remembering/developing the habit – try putting a reminder on your bathroom mirror or somewhere you’ll see it first thing.  If you’re in a place in life where you’re having troubles finding anything to be thankful for, think of the little things and write them down.  Make a list you can refer to when you’re struggling.  A kind act from someone, a special person, a compliment from a friend, a good parking place ….. could be anything!  Dwell on the positive things in your life and watch everything feel brighter!  Develop the habit of thankfulness – the more you focus on thankfulness, the more you’ll see things to be thankful for.

Thanks for reading.  It’s going to be a GREAT week!!



Thanks for visiting!

Did you think I dropped off the face of the earth??  NOPE ~ just out of town and didn’t get posts set up ahead of time.  Sorry about that!

if only 7-19-15

Isn’t she darling?  She looks like a carefree, happy little girl with wrinkles!

It’s true that physical beauty is only skin deep.  True beauty comes from the heart.  How’s your heart?  Has it been broken lately?  Is it holding onto bitterness/anger?  Do you need to forgive someone?

I wonder what it would be like if we spent as much time on our hearts as we did making our outside beautiful.

On the flip side, what would our world be like if our focus was on WHO someone was no matter what they looked like.  I’ll admit, there are times I’m influenced by that first impression of how someone looks before even speaking to them.

Just some things to think about as we encounter others this week.  Remember ~ WHO  you are is way more important than what you look like!!
