but it wasn’t a strong enough spell
you know those moments you just want to linger in forever?

what’s the hurry?
i could go for years
just like this
but it wasn’t a strong enough spell
I always take Wednesdays off. Lately even my days off have been focused on working on a project dear to my heart, but I have not yet broken my rule of no clients on Wednesdays. I do take time to do something enjoyable for my soul even on the days I’m supposedly not working. :-) today since it’s beautiful I’ll take my dogs for a walk in nature. What are you doing for your self care today?

Meet Daisy Mae 🐶
A 14.5 yr old rescue from P.R.🏝
The love of my life 💞
Even the ones we love can drive us nuts 😤 On a morning walk she is s l o w, determined to stop, go back, and sniff everything she did the day before
For a relatively busy person, this is infuriating 😠
Mostly because I know she can run and play just like she did when she’s was a puppy
(As I write this, she is rambunciously running around post-bath 🛁)
But I have to stop, take a breath and remember that this is the highlight of her day
While we are all working or enjoying free time away from home, she’s stuck in the same place🏡
Why can’t I give these 20 minutes to walk slow and stop every couple yards to let her do what she loves? Why do I have to rush her? ⏱
Maybe we can all learn a lesson from Daisy Mae🤔
There are times to be playful, times to be productive and then there are times when it’s okay to take your sweet ass time and smell the same damn tree 🌳
Life is short. Stop running, stop the noise. Make time for your family and friends. Change your routine and see a friend you haven’t seen in a while. Make sure your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, children feel wanted and loved. Those we love are all we have in this life that matter, the rest is just the noise. #bethebestyou#loveoneanother#maketime#smelltheroses#appreciate#begrateful

Sometimes you just need the words from yourself for encouragement. My journey so far this year has been slow, but reading my own thoughts helped me realize that not everything happens at the speed I think it should.
From last year.... Most of live life in the fast lane. Our society encourages us to do so! Look at how many processes have been expedited since we were kids?! Since last year?! I mean seriously, if the world gets any quicker, we will be taking care of tomorrow’s tasks before tomorrow even arrives! Seriously though, have you ever truly stepped back and looked at how this uber fast paced world impacts how you expect personal change or change in others? I am often guilty of expecting personal change too soon. I should have lost all the extra weight by now. I should have mastered that skill. Why hasn’t my child figured the process out? I am sure thoughts like this have crept into your mind too. I have to tell myself that real change can only come in small doses over a long period of time if I want it to be more permanent. So I am learning to stop and smell the roses, and celebrate little wins along the way. I know that when the time is right, I will see the growth I am looking for and appreciate the journey.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. -Lao Tzu
I recently got a new job at a nursery and BOY is it amazing to see and have a hand in growing God’s little green creations every single day. There is life in these plants, just like there is life in you and me. We live in a society of busy & rush & to-do lists a mile long, and we are never reminded to just stop and smell the roses. Slow down and take in the beauty around you that God has created today, y’all. It can be life-changing. 🌱🌸🌼
💛Last year was definately a year of change and growth for me. I never knew how to love myself or even the difference between SELF LOVE and SELFISHNESS... Now that I do, I am sad for the past me. I lived for so long hating who I was and thinking that my life was all about sacrifice. Sacrificing my health (mentally, physically, and spirtually), sleep, interests, hygiene... anything that is nescessary to living a happy and healthy life... I gave up for others. I didn't understand that if I took time out for me, if I filled MY cup first, that I would be able to help others EVEN MORE! I have become a better parent, wife, teacher, and student. My mind is so much more free than it ever has been. 💛All of this being said... I am still learning. There is so much I don't understand and so much more for me to learn. I have learned soooo much more than I did a year ago and I don't dismiss that, BUT... I feel like it was just the start. Now the only way to go is up! 2019 is going to be the best year yet! Just keep in mind... growth can sometimes be painful, change is uncomfortable, and vulnerability is the hardest thing you will ever have to face!
💛I'm willing to put in the work... are ya with me?!?
I'm not in the city much, but when I am I like to take some extra time to enjoy the interesting buildings.
When was the last time you stopped to be a tourist in your own city?
Mushrooms on trees. I’m finding all kinds of cool stuff in my yard lately. Stopping to smell the roses is serious business. Don’t let life just pass you by. Everything you see was created just for you. Believe that. 💗🌲
There is nothing like cracking open a package and uncovering the jewels of HairID. It's like finding buried treasure inside a rock! These Jamaican Black Castor Hot Oil are different, though. They've already been cracked open, which means all you need to do is add hot water, and caress your hair and scalp. Sit for 30 minuets then rinse.
