New Season, New Projects

It is always hard to give up something you have worked so hard nourishing and creating all on your own, but sometimes the "giving up" is more of a trade up! This is exactly where I found myself for a couple weeks, right in the middle of knowing it is time for me to solely dedicate myself to finishing this book.

I have spent all summer and into the fall selling selling and...more selling! What have I been selling, you ask?!

Worthy Of Love 2.0

The last time I took to this project, it was a great success! It was something I had thought about for a few years and when I went to put the idea in motion, it was super rewarding to see how well it came together and how much people were truly inspired by my own thoughts translated into written words. So.... after a much needed break, lots of 'book' work and some new inspiration, I want to start posting a few more. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts so feel free to comment or even go to my contact section on my website and send me a private message. I do read them and I will respond! You never know when something you say may be super inspiring for more written motivation. 

Throwback Thursday--Blog Style

As I am looking over how I've neglected my website over the past year, I stumbled across this short post I felt needed to be shared again. I think it is time for me to write more Worthy Of Love posts so I will try really hard to make some time in between my book writing to get that started again! -Xo

It's time to change the way we look at things! Let's find love in everything that happens even the things that go wrong. It's so easy to get caught up in the things that don't go the way we want or to see the things we don't do or get as a failure in life. I have made a list of some thoughts I try to apply to my own life when things seem to be going against what I want. 

  • Keep an open mind. Just because things didn't go the way you want doesn't mean there isn't a better way for it to happen. 
  • Concentrate on the positive. Think of all the things you have accomplished, do have in your life, and what has turned out right. 
  • Give thanks for the things that go wrong. Something more fitting for your life is coming your way. Don't give up hope!
  • Give yourself credit. Look at what you have survived. And, you're still trying...that is all that really matters. 
  • It's perfectly alright to feel discouraged. This means you are human and are acknowledging that you want change. The moment we are happy with status quo is the moment we stop growing as an individual.
  • Move. Get out of your own way. Ask yourself if there is something you are doing that could be sabotaging yourself. Believe in yourself because you are worthy.
  • Only verbalize the positive. Words are very powerful. Speak and surround yourself with only the best. You deserve to hear no more negativity! 

We are all WORTHY of our dreams coming true BUT sometimes "God can dream a bigger dream for us than we could ever dream for ourselves." -Oprah

A Letter To The Gentle Barn

After seeing quotes and words of encouragement about not giving up on your dreams throughout the day, I made 2 major decisions that have been weighing on my heart for while. One of them was to take a big leap of faith, push the fear out of my mind and send a much needed letter! I hope The Gentle Barn founder, Ellie Laks, will at least know how my heart is right with hers on how to treat animals and by no means would I ever go along with anything that might take from the quality of life those beautiful creatures deserve. I sent this letter in hopes to enhance lives, including my own.

The Letter

Big dreams means big risks so after a year or so I have decided to reach out and ask in what way could I possibly be able to be a guest speaker at either Gentle Barns. I remember reading My Gentle Barn and not only being moved throughout the whole book but changing the way I think about my passions and goals when Ellie asked herself what does she have to lose..she has a cow to save! She went door to door asking for money. I guess this is sort of me going door to door. Why would anyone just give a girl that says "I want to be a speaker at your organization" a chance. But, I have a story to tell and people to reach. I know the Gentle Barn and what it represents and does for others is exactly one of the many stops along my journey. 

I sat down today with all these amazing thoughts in my head to write because I am writing a memoir and manage a blog. Nothing but frustration overcome me because I almost feel lost on if any opportunities will come of all the work I have put into this. The only thing I have been able to write today is this message in a tiny comment block! 

I have been selling basically everything in my closet for months to try to raise money for what I am working on. I still don't have what I need so financially I know I would not have the money to get to there to even speak. So nothing is perfect, not even my website that I have had to neglect because I have so many other things to do. I honestly wanted to have everything in better condition before I wrote this, but I have decided to take control of the imperfections and take a huge chance on doing what I am meant to do! Have opportunities to share my story to encourage others. 

If this is something that you think could work in a miracle way I would love to know! If not at this time, then know I am not done trying. When I am able to find a way to get this book published and have money I WILL be there! To support financially, to speak to help heal others, and to hug a cow to heal me! Much love to each and every one of you for what you do and much love to each living creature that walks into your life. 

Love and Light,
