New Years Day. The greatest excuse to curb habits that give you the guilts and a chance to rediscover all that you desire and are truly capable of, innit? I've been dipping into the blog world in the last year-super motivating!- and have secretly been craving a creative space of my own. A soft place to fall if you will! Somewhere I can go for a boost of creative energy! Filled with all that makes me happy, inspired, and Motivated! My digital vision board..
(I've become quite obsessed with Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now". I listen to the book on tape version on my way to school every morning. I listen to it over and over and each time I discover new and powerful messages. Powerful, yet Simple.) What I'm getting at is :
I feel it is so important to really LIVE IN THE NOW, Enjoy the Journey, Respect where I'm at, and be Grateful for all that I Have in this beautiful world. I really am so blessed. (Every night before bed I will write in my "Gratefullness Journal" this can include anything from "my strength and health" to things I hope to attain > "thank you for our beautiful home in the country" >which leads me to my next share:
The other night my love and I , we decided to design our dream home and all that it will entail. It's a work in progress, and nothing is "set in stone" (as humans we are constantly changing afterall). So! While I believe it is important to respect and love where I am in this moment...DREAMING is important for growth and the more REAL IT FEELS , I truly believe the more REAL it will BECOME>BE>IS! Here's a glimpse:

and most importantly, friends and family, all are welcome...basically.. a hippie commune -!heehee!
It's amazing what comes out and what you can learn about yourself !
I feel I was largely inspired by The Yoga Garden retreat in Wakefield, QC where I spent 2 glorious nights last summer:
Love and Light and Blessings to all on our Journey through 2012!!
