Friday’s Lovelies : 4.22.11

let it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to
let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go
let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go
so comes love

e.e. cummings

(Thank you for reminding me of this Carol)

What puts the YOU in beaYOUtiful? : Jen asked a group of gorgeous women this question & I am so very honored to be among them. Thank you so much Jen, super-mega lovely & inspiring!

You Don’t Have To Do It All : No one but me expects me to do it all. Sometimes things are going to fall by the wayside, and that’s ok.

Maybe you’ve heard of Heartsy? If you haven’t you’re in for a treat! I am completely in love with what they are doing. It’s basically like Groupon for Etsy. Like most daily deal sites, you get cash every time you refer someone. You refer your friends & YOU get a $5 credit & THEY get a $5 credit if they end up buying in on a deal. So, if you sign up & buy in, I get $5 AND you get $5! Everyone wins! I’ve bought in on two super-sweet deals so far & I’m hooked. It’s free right now, if I were you, I’d sign up!

Beautiful blog posts inspired by my eCourse, Be Gentle, Be Love:

Learning to Fly : In all things there must be a balance, but if you don’t allow yourself the opportunity to make leaps of faith then you miss out on all the world has to offer.

Generosity : I guess giving them love is a way for me to be generous, but I really think that them allowing me to love them is the generous gift.

It is all about Being Present : Tact is in a balancing act with truth most of the time.

Beauty : Then there is the self-loathing detour of “The Gray Hairs”. There it is. In print. I can no longer operate in the delusion that they are errant dried bits of cream cheese frosting or misguided mayo or chaotic powdered sugar. I must be thankful for them before I decide what to do with them…

Tangible LoveMaybe they have been taken advantage of too many times in life and have forgotten the joy that comes with being real and present and generous.

Taking It Slow : In these times of deep peace I tend to feel very insignificant in the scheme of existence and to some degree it is humbling because if you widen the picture that far out you can understand that you are very tiny and it helps to create a better connection with the machine of life and how it takes all of us to make it work.

The Gratitude Principle : You know how if someone says, “Don’t think about a purple elephant,” all you can do is think about purple elephants? Gratitude is like that: the more you open yourself to it, the more you’ll see it expressed in your life. Everywhere.

Smitten with this DIY using old ladles
