“Know yourself. Be yourself. Love yourself. Seek goodness and be goodness. Seek beauty and be beauty. Seek love and be love.” ― Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason

There are several women in my life whom I adore, who inspire me, who make me think deeply, who make me sigh, who make me smile, who make me cry, who are beautiful.

Today, I am inspired by Dancing Mermaid and Erica the Artist to think about the following things:

Today I am:

saying no to:
Negative thoughts.
Eating too many cookies.

saying yes to:
Happy thoughts.
Eating too many cookies.
Holding on to hope.
Making Jalapeno Poppers.

giddy about:
My son's acceptance to the U of A College of Engineering.
My dog that I love so deeply.
My new friend in Germany - I cannot speak her language, nor her mine, yet we are sharing the joy of a new-found friendship.

scared of:
My mom's recent illness.
Being jobless and carless.
Dying young, there is so much more I want to see and do.

deeply inspired by:
My mom's tenacity.
Friends who love me.
Sunflowers that lift their face to the sunshine to bloom.

obsessed with:
Loving deeply.
Giving all that I have.
The joy found in intimacy.
Sunny days.
Being warm.

in love with:
My son.
My Honey.
My dog.
My friends.
Sometimes, myself.

haunted by:
Losing loved ones too soon.
How I feel about my father.
Missing my baby girl.

saved by:
The good Lord.
Motorcycle rides.
Helicopter rides.
Listening to my iPod under the stars at the lake.
Having someone to ponder deep thoughts with.

What inspires you today?
