Love Notes

A Cali Christmas!

I know I have not written in a while but it has been a long, busy and arduous emotional year. Thankfully, things are finally winding down and feeling almost back to normal or should I say my ‘new normal’. Writing has proven to be great therapy as it helps me quiet the voices in my head giving my thoughts instant life and relieving me of the continuous banter swirling in my head […]

Best Moments of 2014!

I truly left behind 2013 in every way imaginable. I started this year with new hope and an expectation of something great and great new beginnings, new opportunities and new blessings is what I received. I am reminded of how powerful our words are for we speak our futures into existence every day with every conversation we have both with others and ourselves. No, I did not achieve all of my goals or reach the insurmountable height I sought after but my decisions, risks and courage did move me forward in my journey. I’ve been professionally challenged from the growth that was necessary to get me through this year. I have lost loved ones and beautiful souls that have transitioned on to the next life, leaving me with great memories but an emptiness that I’m not sure will ever dissipate. I’ve witnessed joy, excitement, elation, defeat, sorrow, pain, humility and devastation but these are the emotions that make up a life well lived and I would not have it any other way. As I look to 2015, I am relentlessly optimistic as I know I have sowed good seeds and I’m looking for my God to grow them and send the harvest but first I must continue my ‘own’ tradition of looking back on some of the greatest moments of 2014. Come along for the ride!

Transformation is learning to enjoy the journey because the journey is always right on time! #DVDidIt

#MakeItGoodMonday – Architecture Is Music!

Every space has a spirit, r rhythm and a voice.  When venue shopping, keep in mind Goethe’s declaration that “architecture is frozen music.”  So, as I look at a church or private estate, I also listen.  I take in the walls, doorways, moldings, light fixtures – I never fight the architecture, whether art nouveau or rococo.  I never work against the aura of a space.  I listen for the song.

#SoulfulSunday – Because of Her Love!

#SoulfulSunday She taught me how to fall to my knees and seek God in all situations that life would throw at me. To develop a sincere compassion for people and those less fortunate than I. To show loving kindness towards all of mankind regardless of what they show me. To remain humble with a meek spirit because that is Christ like but also to walk through this world as bold as a lion because I am a child of the king. I am because of Her L-O-V-E! #DVDidIt #HappyMothersDay

#TransformationTuesday

The truth is that none of us likes being wrong and certainly not admitting when we are wrong but my greatest life lessons have come from my Mom and my path to transformation started when I decided that she actually knew more than I did. We all have our own lives to live and journeys to take but there is so much wisdom that is passed down from great women in our lives. Are you listening?
