Japan Inspired Sticker

This is a very special design that I drew years ago when living in Japan. Different then most mandala designs I draw. I fell in love with it and never really did much with it, until this year. I decided to jump in and create a 4×4 sticker with it! It’s absolutely brilliant!!!

Now available in my Etsy Shop .

It is all coming together!

I am beyond excited to share this with you.
I have been working my ass off this year at jobs that were damn challenging and time-consuming. Over the last few months, I cut back from working for others and took that time to work on what I love.
Drawing Organic Mandala Designs.
In two weeks I have my first Holiday Craft Show that I am setting up with a good friend here in Denver Colorado. There will be over 240 vendors at this show. I will be selling all sorts of artwork. I have been dreaming about getting out and meeting people this way for many years.

Spread Your Wings with Peacock! This mandala and most of my works are inspired by my world travels. Many years ago I went to Australia, this was a huge dream of mine. During my time there I was blessed to see peacocks roaming about in the wild. These birds are magical! Peacocks symbolize re-growth and rejuvenation, royalty, respect, honor, and integrity. Also a symbol of beauty, love, and passion. In Hinduism and Buddhism, these birds are considered to be sacred and worshipped alongside their deities. Place this sticker somewhere that will be seen on a daily basis like a daily journal or planner. Let it remind you how amazing you are. You can purchase it here https://etsy.me/3nhCdxz

Holiday Craft Fair

Mental Wellness Tuesday

One of the greatest things you can do for yourself is honestly not care what other people think about you. People will judge you. They will talk behind your back. They will create drama just for the hell of it. Not losing ourselves in all the chaos that we may create for ourselves or that others around us create is my best advice for today’s post.

Mental Wellness Tuesday

Taking long walks in cute towns can truly take your mind off things. Window shopping and for me I love grabbing a yummy hot latte in a adorable coffee shop. This is healing for me, especially in the Fall. Walking into bookstores and checking out what they have. Chatting with the locals. It’s all a bundle of wellness.

This week’s advice is get outside, go on an adventure and talk with people. Have fun. Breathe in the fresh air. It’s a fantastic reboot.

Love Yourself

There are people on this planet that believe they can “save” you. It’s wise to understand that no one can save you except you. There are people that believe they know how you are feeling or think they know. They don’t. They are in no way walking in your shoes. Life is amazing and beautiful even on your hard days. Love yourself. Stand up for yourself. Be kind. But be real.

Be one with nature

Mental Wellness Tuesday

Today I ask you to take 4 minutes of your time to just close your eyes and listen. That is all. Listen to your breathing, listen to the sounds around you. Is there an airplane above, a car driving by, a bird chirping? JUST LISTEN to what is inside you or around you. That is all. If your thoughts get in there, just let them float on by. Just listen to what is around you. After 4 minutes has passed. Move on with your day. Have a good one.

Love Hugs Kisses

Mental Wellness Tuesday

Mind&Body connection. I sat here this morning in front of my computer thinking about how today is Tuesday in my part of the world but Tuesday is ending in other parts of the world. Why does this matter? It doesn’t. I think too much.

Most likely a vast majority of humans on this planet think way too much. We make up stories in our heads that are simply not true and do not exist, except in our heads. It is exhausting…don’t you think?

This week I am going to share what helps me not think so much. I mean thinking is important so don’t get me wrong here. It is just really and I mean really important to think about shit that actually matters. I may be sharing what you already know…of course. But the key here is that I want us to learn to let go of the drama in our heads and be here now. I did not go to a university to learn about this…well actually I did…it is called the university of life.

Let me share a bit of my her-story with you.
In 2015 my life changed, that is when my mom passed away.
My mom passed away because of mental illness.
I know this because I grew up with her. That is good enough for me to be sitting here sharing my thoughts with you to help make our lives a bit better each day.

The stress of losing my mom while living overseas was…well… hard. But what was really hard was realizing that I was not in a good place in mind and body. It took me a few years to get my shit together but I figured out that if I move my body my mind will be in a much happier place. We can only help ourselves. That is it. The person you see in the mirror everyday is your soul responsibility. What you choose to do with your thoughts and actions is all up to you.
Live in fear.
Live in joy.
It is your call.

Here I am at my gym in America. One of those cheap Planet Fitness gyms. I love it because it works for me. I spent loads of money on a fancy gym in Japan that is no different than this cheap gym. I thrive after a good workout. I also have days when I make up a million excuses as to why I can not workout today. This has been the case for me since I moved to America, in 2020. I have had a very challenging time with keeping myself pumped. Here is the thing…shut off your negative thoughts about yourself and others as if they were passing clouds. Just let them float on by and go out and do something else…like a long walk with kick ass music in your ears. Go to the gym. Jog in place in your living room. Dance like a wild monkey. When I was a child and I saw my mom dancing her ass off to Lionel Richie in our living room it made her HAPPY! I wish she would have done it more. Are you getting my point here?

Move your body. Not to lose weight.

Do it for your mind.

Have a beautiful week.
Hugs & Kisses

Mental Wellness Tuesday

I’m starting a series, a habit, a thing. It’s called Mental Wellness Tuesday. It’s a check in ✅ with yourself… myself… us.

So follow my blog, tell your friends about it and have them follow it. I may even start a weekly Saturday post that will help pump you up and remind you of how awesome you are.

Do you

Here’s a tip. Spend an hour or more with you. No phone. No friends. Do it when the kids are at school or taking a nap. Just you. Nature is a great place to start. Coffee shops distract so I suggest somewhere that brings ease. Basically… nature. Just relax. Breathe. Write. Read something that inspires you. I have loads of book selections… hmmmm perhaps I need to start sharing those as well.

As you can see I’m starting to feel inspired and I want you to feel inspired too. It all begins with you.

Have a beautiful day and find that time slot for yourself. Come back and visit my little online journal here for weekly inspiration.

Hugs & kisses

Reorganized New Start

Starting to organize… well my entire apartment now that I have more time.

We are looking at all the single oils except Hawaiian Sandalwood and Yarrow Pom. I have the Yoga set and Emotional Aromatherapy set. Along with a few other special ones that I use often like Manuka, Holiday Peace, Blue Lotus, Neroli, Magnolia, Northern Escape, Adaptive and Midnight Forest. It feels so good to go through all my oils and wipe them off, put new stickers on them and have them all in front of me like this.
Clean and organized.

More to come when I reorganize the rest of my oils.
There’s something about doing this that feels so good.
A new start.
Have a good week everyone ♥️
