Finding your voice

Find your own voice and let it be one of a kind. You cannot expect anything original from an echo.

Where to now?

Maybe there are things you would like to change. Things in your past, things you did wrong, perhaps the things that you view as mistakes. You can dwell on it and beat yourself up, you might be especially tough on yourself, all while you would easily give everybody else a break. Somehow you can do the same for you. I have seen it a few times now and I have witnessed that we often place unrealistic expectations on ourselves. Ideals that nobody can live up to and yet we don’t lower the stakes when it comes to be ourselves. I believe that it is then and especially during those times, that we need to accept the lessons for what they were and practice forgiveness. Just like everybody else, we too are deserving of forgiveness, our own and those of others, because in the end……You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

The heart of a Gypsy 🦋

I want to rid my life of clocks, schedules and deadlines and live by the rising sun.

Worship the moon and feel the earth beneath my feet.

Walk off the beaten path and celebrate Mother Nature and all its creatures.

Love on my own terms and see adventure in every day.

Nourish my soul and make time to express the passions that truly matter.

Fall in love with everyone I meet, and collect the stories to tell.

Plumas National Park

October 25th and one of the last warm days to walk barefoot and feel the earth beneath my feet. Without a doubt this is one of my favorite spots….oh wait….actually, there are many. But today, looking back to this day and this picture, it comes with a great reminder to….

“Remember to water your roots and your soul will blossom”

Pop of color 

A few storms have moved into my neighborhood. Not only in the sense of a few unrestful feelings, but also in the form of lower temperatures and mountain snow. I recognize that my creativity peaks whenever adversity strikes and the ideas are just pouring out of me. I have no choice but to jot them down for times when I will be able to engage in the process of bringing them to live. 

I’m seeking solitude in nature today and trust her to calm my troubled soul. I’m ok for the most part, but I’m still working through the helplessness of not being in a position of changing things a whole lot right now. In the meantime reality still causes me some grief and remains unchanged.

Today my wisdom reminds me to seek a pop of color whenever your skies are gray. This picture was taken last week and shows that your pop of color can come in all kinds of shapes and all kinds of places. It doesn’t matter where it is, or what it is you do, just find the spot that puts your soul at ease and allow the stresses to melt away. Xo 🦋

Surrender to what is…

I believe that peace of mind comes through surrender. To walk away from the fight and the need to be in control. Freedom knocks on our door through acceptance and through staying flexible. As I quiet myself, a few things come to mind.

I remind myself to surrender. 

To not fight the things that must naturally unfold,

and  to trust the things that I cannot change.

I remind myself that freedom comes through acceptance,

and that bitterness can’t strive in the face of believing in the good of everything.

Smoother sea’s

I wanted to take a moment and thank everybody for taking the time to be there for me. Yesterday’s storm has mostly passed and I know that we all have those moments. I was fully aware and wanted to share my thoughts and emotions on purpose to show you that we all struggle from time to time. No one is exempt and I will go into more detail with a later post, as well as respond to your individual and most kind comments.

It’s a new day and the sea is smoother. The storms always pass, and if lucky, we get another chance to get it right, to make the most out of the opportunities that are provided, and to go ahead and give it another try. Today I’m making the most out of today as I am listening to my soul and shut out the noise.

Have you seen this? Empathy can change the world!

A beautiful blog post from my friend at
It speaks to my heart and the core of my beliefs, it connects with the empath that resides within me and it simply needs to be shared. Many think that they are only one, not realizing the power of one and that each of us has the ability to make a difference. That itself is powerful and it starts with a choice and a little compassion and empathy. Who’s world have you changed lately? Doesn’t it feel wonderful?

The Purple Almond

As Mother Teresa once said: “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” and “If you can’t feed 100 people, then feed just one.”


We often think that we are just one person and can’t make a difference. Just think how powerful we can become if every person helps just one person. The world would change drastically. Just as snowflakes, working together, create a powerful event, we can create an avalanche of love, kindness and empathy.

Marketing Plan

As I was looking through youtube, in search of videos for my morning video series, I stumbled across this wonderful video, short, but quite inspiring. As is indicated in the video description, this video was developed by a class of 8th grade students at Kalispell Middle School, in Kalispell, Montana.
