Beauty & Blessings: This Week in Wonder & Awe(some)

Hello Beautiful Souls,

Happy Weekend!  There is lots going on in the Design Studio and pending any unforseen circumstances, you will be getting your weekly dose of Beauty & Blessings from a new home next week…The Newly Launched Big Picture Fine Focus website! That’s right folks, with the evolution of one’s life comes the evolution of one’s playground.

It’s been a long time coming-a knowing that things were changing and evolving. And it’s my hope that this playground will become your playground-a place to fuel up regularly and get your “I” checked; a place to be inspired, laugh, learn, and let go. Most importantly, may it be a place to experience love….dangerous love.

 

This week, as we put the finishing touches on the new website, I was reminded about what it means to believe in something and stand firm in your convictions. Through a series of serendipitous moments (don’t you just love those?), I was introduced to some very inspiring people. I was swept away by their courage, their willingness to risk it all, and most importantly, their willingness to lay down their dreams for something so. much. more. In the words of the beautiful and brilliant Moriah Peters, “Wow God. This is something special and I want to be a part of it.”

Happy Weekend Beautiful Souls.

This is a beautiful reminder that change waits for no one. When we embrace the beauty that each season of our lives bring, we will find ourselves with more joy, more peace, and more gratitude-the ingredients of a blessed life.

Every now and then, we come across an organization that is so awe-inspiring you just can’t get enough. That is exactly how I felt when through a series of serendipitous choices/actions, I learned about I Am Second. Beyond an organization, beyond a phrase, I Am Second is a lifestyle…and one that is game-changing.
