INSPIRATION, GRATITUDE & SURPRISES

 365 til 30 is the featured story on Life By Me today!! Life By Me happens to be one of my favorite sites- I look forward to reading the  featured piece everyday and today it’s mine! No pressure that other featured stories were written by Deepak Chopra and Desmond Tutu, right? No pressure at all. In all seriousness though, I am thrilled to be included on the site. It means the world to me and I also don’t mind being called a “Manifesting Dynamo” either…

-What inspired me this week?-

This quote-

“When you surrender, the problem ceases to exist. Try to solve it, or conquer it, and you only set up more resistance. . . . The most difficult thing to admit, and to realize with one’s whole being, is that you alone control nothing. . . .”
— Henry Miller

I have been crazy focused (I stress crazy) on how 365 til 30 is supposed to end and attempting to plan everything out like I control the universe. I have had to keep reminding myself that 365 til 30 is a ride to be enjoyed and not to be controlled. So when I stumbled upon the quote above I smiled with acceptance. I alone do not control everything and that’s actually part of the fun. That’s the funny thing about manifesting. You have to trust that you have put the energy out there and be open to what is meant to come. Things may turn out differently than I initially imagined and who the hell knows what’s to be revealed within the next 5 months. I have been wonderfully surprised numerous times in the last 6 months. Why stop now, Universe!

Oh, road trip planning you certainly do inspire me. I get a little flutter in my heart every time I think about my upcoming trip. I could stay up all night every night researching interesting things to do across America. I find it all so exciting! I still can’t believe I plan on leaving my life for a month to explore the US. Sounds slightly insane. But, I guess I am slightly insane so it all makes sense.

LOVED this list.

This beautiful photography project by Lauren Fleishman features the love stories of couples who have been married for over 50 years. The pictures are the sweetest thing I have ever seen but the quotes are even sweeter.

I am re-reading The Artist’s Way and I always find it inspiring.

When I can hear the waves crash at night.

-What am I grateful for this week?-

Brian. I was sick this week and as we all know when you feel crummy there is nothing better then having somebody take care of you.

-What surprised me this week?-

 I received an envelope in the mail from my friend Aireka with an amazing music compilation CD in it! She decided to make a CD for her friends that represented  her music expression of 2011. Don’t you just love that idea!?
