Today is Mother's Day……and although there are still so many lessons I have left to teach my son……one that is the most important to me is that he never forgets the Tree of Life…… to stay firmly planted but never stop reaching for stars. The two of us have been through so much since last Mother's Day…..and when I woke up this morning I realized that its important for him to remember that even when life breaks you down… have stay firmly planted in your faith and keep going with your daily life but in order to keep going you can NEVER give up on your dreams…..even if they change along the way ;)

Free Soul

"When I forgive, I wipe the slate clean. I replace feelings of anger, resentment or fear with peace, love and courage. These qualities reflect the truth of who I am and how I want to live. I am a free soul, unconditionally loved. As I forgive myself and others, I am at peace. I express love. I am courageous and strong. Through forgiveness, I am free of the past. I embrace a new life."

It has taken a long time to get to this point in my life……I have finally forgiven myself for all of the mistakes and bad decisions I have made…..because without those mistakes I wouldn't be who I am today. I am a free soul embracing a new life…….I am at peace and unbelievably happy with everything and everyone in my life right now.

You and the Moon and Neptune

"I think the universe is on my side 
Heaven and earth have finally aligned,
Days are good and that's the way it should be....
You sprinkle stardust on my pillow case
It's like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that's the way it should be.....
And I see colors in a different way,
You make what doesn't matter fade to gray,
Life is good and that's the way it should be.....
Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation? 
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me, 
I think you and the moon and Neptune got it right....cuz now I'm shining bright"✨

Upside Down

"do not worry that your life is turning upside down. how do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?"

Often times when our life seems like its being turned every which way but the right way we lose faith. But its important to remember that we are tossed around the way that we are for a reason, and, when the time is right, you understand why everything has happened the way that it did and you are so much more thankful for being turned "upside down."

Beauty All Around

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair" Khalil Gibran

Life is full of its ups and downs…… but the one constant that picks me up when I'm down is the feeling of sand between my toes and the ocean breeze leaving the faint smell of salt in my hair. Forget not that life is beautiful….and that it is your job to see the beauty that is all around you.

"She was a woman with a million happy memories, who knew what is was like to experience true love and was ready to experience more life, more love and make new memories. Whether it happened in ten months or ten years. Whatever lay ahead, she knew she would open her heart and follow where it led. In the meantime, she would just live."
via p.s. i love you

"May the sun bring you new energy by day,
may the moon softly restore you by night,
may the rain wash away your worries,
may the breeze blow new strength into your being,
may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life"
