INSPIRATION, GRATITUDE & SURPRISES

WEEK 7 –

(I cannot believe it’s been 7 weeks. Sweet baby Jesus time flies!)

-What Inspired me this week?-

Volunteering for Food On Foot

The new book I am reading “A Long Way Gone: Memories of a boy soldier” by Ishmael Beah

My favorite blog of the week- Cupcakes & Cashmere …I’ll admit…I have serious blog envy.

My girlfriend Rachel’s blog One Part Gypsy for being an inspiration and for introducing me to Lyrics To Live By

This song – 01 Helena Beat

-What am I grateful for this week?-

My relationship with Brian, he brings me joy, laughter and comfort everyday

My Dad and Pamela, for so many reasons but this week it’s because they bought me Tango classes!

Lazy afternoons writing

My yoga practice

Meditation

Change

That my friend Jenni comes home from volunteering in Haiti in 4 days! Yes, she’s a rockstar.

The fact that my journey at Tassajara begins in less than 3 weeks!!

365 till 30 because it makes me happy

-What Surprised me this week?-

After volunteering at Food On Foot, I am surprised at how brave the human spirit can be.

An email from one of my favorite sites! I will conquer you!
