Screen shot 2018-08-13 at 6.23.08 PM

Vision Board: A project (made increasingly more fun with friends and snacks) that helps physically ground your intentions for the upcoming year. How you wish to grow, what new endeavors (career/social/travel/art/etc…) you want to attempt…you get the picture!

With love & stringy hot glue gun nests,
Meg

 

Day 13: Grandmothers

Grandma Mac taught me how to swing a baseball bat. Grandma Dolly showed me how to unlock the magic of color on canvas. I love both of these women so much. I miss them everyday. It truly is a blessing to hold in my heart so many memories. They both gifted me with the most beautiful and fulfilling missions: to write something beautiful out of their stories.

 

 

 

 

With love and butterflies and fusia roses,

Day 11 & 12: Discovering Your Superpower(s)

28168560_10212941818794136_5067112373596736857_n

Whether you are particularly spiritual…isn’t it nice to humor the idea that we each posess a “calling”? I like to call it our ‘superpower’.

Take for instance the photo of me just above.

My cape: an oversized t-shirt dress.
My weapon: Hair hair hair.
My signature: Bead socks- folded once.
My superpower: alliteration and silliness…or communication and creative problem solving.

With love & magic,
Meg

Day 10: The Land Between Bitter & Sweet

You’ve heard it before: Change is the only constant in life – gotcha, great…now may you explain the language of that land between bitter and sweet – this place I visit before any big change.

 

Cliffnotes:

-Special THANK YOU for my boyfriend, Nick, who is riding this tide of change with me. He’s cut from a more logical cloth and helps me step out of my internal monologue. He also supports me by bringing me snacks and playing me songs ❤️

-The quote I shared at the end is from my beautiful friend Regina Breech. She posts live videos daily and her face and soul is SUNSHINE. Here is her info (provided with permission, of course) and I encourage you give her a listen or reach out!

Day 9: My Therapist is a soft-spoken & quick-whip of a woman (in her fierce 70’s)

6f0ec8ea7c421c193c8f306d92133727

I see a therapist once a week and because it has positively impacted my life, I thought I would share a bit of how I started and why I stayed.

*NOTE: I’m me…not a doctor or certified mental health anything…so this is purely my story and my light I’d like to share…but not everything works the same across individuals. So maybe therapy isn’t your thing! But, if you think it might be…and you are a novice to the subject (like I once was)…feel free to reach out to me with questions! No question is too silly or stupid…and everything shared between us is confidential ❤️

 

Cliffnotes: 

A very special ‘THANK YOU’ to my two friends, Kelsie & Britney, for supporting me during that confusing and dark time of my life. Being the help a friend needs isn’t always easy (and takes it’s own form of bravery). You truly saved my life and I think about you everyday ❤️

With love and a wheelbarrow full of gratitude,
Meg
