In a divisive time, with fears about the economy and personal sustenance, there is so much creativity being embraced.  Thanks to Joanna Gaines, Farmhouse chic and cozy homes have been inspired, admired, and copied.  In fact, more money is being spent on home renovations and remodeling than in the past ten years.  Collectors have been seeking Rae Dunn items and other pottery, cozy textured pillows and throws, artistic tablescaping, and special home displays are the influences so many of us reach for.  Creativity in all its forms has begun to be so greatly appreciated:  photography, cooking, painting, handmade items, handwritten journals, knits and crochet, lettering and writing with special pens and papers, and an appreciation for beauty, wabi sabi, ( ) in imperfect images and forms.

We desire the need to create, to enhance, to aspire, and be validated and appreciated.  We seek to add beauty to the world and build environments and homes that make people feel safe, embraced, and welcomed.

We have plenty of rules, jobs, financial, and family concerns, but having an inspired respite and the self-knowledge that we have tried to improve the world one creative idea at a time is very alluring.  Keep seeking and creating peace.  Keep adding your unique additions to the world for others to appreciate, thank, acknowledge, and improve one imaginative and artistic act a time.  We need all the individual beautiful expressions to raise us above the mundane and motivate each to find the creativity in our own lives.

by doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others

Our world does not acknowledge the beauty of solitude. We have many in silence, out of fear or shame, or those who have given up the joy of conversation for technology. But, in a world full of noise, literal and figurative, there is great healing in those quieter pastimes such as reading, meditating, art, or observing nature.

Our nervous systems were not created to be caught up in constant noise or upheaval. I find as I get older, that I require and look forward to such solitude. There is much to give to others, but recognizing and realizing the self-care we deserve, is a gift that no one can give us but ourselves.

It is a gift in gratitude and magnitude that we can appreciate the peaceful silence.
