We must choose our own path + create our own stories, yes?  It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, especially if it’s working for them.  But that isn’t our story.

In order to find our own way in our lives, we must be brave and forge roads that matter to us.  We must seek out the ones that we are curious about, even if they are a bit off the beaten track.  Even if they seem like a myth.

Make trails, friend.  Follow your heart.

Love, Steph

We Do Not See Things As They Are.

We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are. Need a pick me up to brighten your day? Click through to see the series Quick Inspiration on the Blog. The series includes some of my favorite quotes!

Perspective really is everything, isn’t it?  There have been countless times that I have misinterpreted a situation because I was viewing it from a different angle, and not how it was meant.

We all see things from our own lens, and it’s not always accurate–I know that knowing the difference is part of the growth process.  So I try to remember to take my ego out of the situation, that not everything is about me.  That helps me refocus on what’s really happening, not what I imagine the situation to be.

I’m going to try to hold this thought gently next time I feel like I’m not seeing things clearly.  Easier said than done, I know!  But it’s about progress not perfection, friends.

Love, Steph

Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about

We are all artists creating our life. What are you intentionally manifesting today? Click through for other quick inspiration.

We are all artists in our own way, creating everyday.  Whether we realize it or not, each word, action + thought is moving us closer or farther away from what we want.

Inside you there really is an artist.

And I know this idea can be scary because it makes us realize that we are the master of our universe–taking responsibility for things that happen in life can be a tough pill to swallow!  But if we start looking at it like an amazing gift, to be able to navigate our own destiny, it becomes pretty exciting.

What are you creating in your life today?

You Will Never Be Able To Escape From Your Heart.

escape-from-your-heart

Happy Monday, friends!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about those heart yearnings we all have–and how it might seem easy to ignore them for a little while.  But eventually, that whisper becomes a scream and you can’t deny it any more.  You will never be able to escape from your heart.

I felt this way about my painting–not that I had to become this amazing painter or artist, but I knew I needed to paint + create; I needed to get out on canvas what my heart wanted to say.

Self-expression is so important, both for our own sanity but also because the world needs to hear our deepest calling.

What does your heart want to say today?

It Takes Time To Become Yourself

Time to become yourself

I painted this background last night in class. As I was layering the paints and letting my thoughts wander, this thought came to my mind: It takes time to become yourself.

We’re all in such a rush to get to our next destination, accomplishment or milestone that we forget the journey is where the magic happens.  It takes time to evolve and figure out who we are, what we want, how we feel.  There’s no hard and fast rule on how to live life; let’s slow down and take our time.  And luckily, we can change things up as we go.

Enjoy the dance, the ebb and flow, the challenges that come up; afterall, what is the alternative?  We miss out on the best moments while wishing for something else.  Be patient friends, things are happening the way they should and we are becoming ourselves bit by bit.

Be Easy.

Be easy

I saw this quote the other day and it hit me like a punch in the gut.  In a good way, of course:  Be easy.

It couldn’t have come at a better time for me.  It feels like life is speeding up as I approach my wedding day and I really want to slow it down a little to make sure I’m enjoying it; I’ll never get this special time back.  I really want to enjoy the anticipation about the wedding, being married + becoming a ‘we’.

I’ve waited a long time to meet the right person to settle down with; And I’d be lying if I said that I was never on the edge of giving up, because I was, many times.  I began to think that maybe it was for other people and I would find happiness in other ways.  But something always pulled me back to believing that this could happen for me, too.  I believe that we all deserve that ever-binding, true and loyal love to take root in our lives.  Even when we’re not feeling so loveable or that it’s too late.  It’s never too late.

So as I dance through these next few weeks, I want to remember that yes, there are changes everywhere and overwhelm is always breathing down my neck.  But there’s also the excitement of becoming more myself, through the journey of being with someone else in a more permanent way.  I feel like in becoming a we, I have really begun to nail down what it means to be me.
