Wendy, my daughter, has seen me printing out the tear off posters and cards for over a year now and she always liked them. So when she and her best friends, Julia and Aoife, got together for Wendy’s 16th birthday this past weekend they set up an assembly line ! Printing, cutting, looking for different cards on your site, making their own cards – it was a flurry of paper, scissors and sharpies lol! They stayed after school on Monday and after checking with their head of year (who Wendy said was looking decidedly ‘misty eyed’ and kept calling them her angels) they went to work distributing around the school. Within a couple of days everything had been taken and they were re-printing! Makes your heart sing, doesn’t it? – Alyson
I am in awe of these girls, so beautiful, brave & FULL of light. I think of young people when I make most of my printables. My dream, & I’m putting it out there for all the greatness that putting it out there usually brings you:
One day I want to work with young people in small groups. It’s what I went to college to do & I never finished because the rules & hierarchy that the field of social work had in place made me itch. Thank you for sharing this Alyson, you gals rekindled something in me, I’m forever grateful.
You Don’t Have to Be Everything : You can make the choice, in this moment, to release yourself of that burden and accustom yourself to the unique light of You. The wild, untamed animal spirit of You. The strange, irrational, totally absurd and magnificent beauty of You.
Risk Being You : If you could erase everything you know about yourself, who would you become?
If you missed me raving about this in the newsletter & on Facebook : You are made of BIGNESS! : Get the Mp3 & the desktop wallpaper, first-rate spunk from Fabeku, as always. LOVE. (PS I dare you to find his 404 page!)
100 Things I Never Thought I’d Tell You : To tell you the things that anger me and excite me, I’d have to toss all the rules of blogging and self-employment out the window. As if those “rules” are the key to what makes me lovable–what makes me marketable.
Sloughing the “Spiritual” Identity & Becoming the Wholeness of Me. : I don’t know about you, but for longer than I’d care to admit, I’ve harbored a “pretty picture” of what it means to be fully realized. Of what it looks like to be a spiritual being.
Supermoon alert : Biggest full moon of 2012 due tomorrow!
Flirting With Joy : A Beautiful Love Story
No-Bake Energy Bites : Must try!
I hope your weekend is peppered with jubilant bits of bliss!
Deep Love, Respect & Gratitude,
