Put God FirstI am always a dreamer. I am a deep thinker with incredible powers of observation. I love to create. I am a poet at heart. I am a lover of truth, wisdom, knowledge, and random acts of kindness. I love being a woman... I believe in chivalry. Godly with a little lousy girl edge... I am gifted as a decorator, a writer, transparency, and expressionism. I am an admirer of beauty, art, music, literature, and poetry. I love to be moved, to feel, to express and a movie that makes me think. I love challenges and stretching my abilities.
I love the morning sun rises and the last of the rays of light stretching from the horizon and looking upwards at the blue-black sky with the first of the evening stars preparing to take their place. I love God, His Word, His mercy, His grace, and His love. I love that God has His hand in my life, engineering, and building something from an idea in my head...
I love front porch swings. I love my morning coffee and evening hot green tea. I love the sound of rain and the beauty of a rainbow. I love complex over simple. I love architecture, antique furniture, refinishing furniture, decorating, textures, and the color of red. I like to wear high heels, cool boots, and skirts and big cotton t-shirts. I love nature, mountains, water, and the ocean. I love to explore, but sometimes comfortable silence is welcomed…..
Be in Love With Your Life - Every Minute of it
To say you need a vacation from your daily life is ridiculous; because we take all the baggage with us. The secret is to live a life worth living, seek happiness, and boycott all that is dragging you down. I have learned not to let anyone or anything suck the joy out of me.
Failure Is Not An Option
I think the definition of failure is not having passion, settling for average, and being too afraid to take chances.
I have disciplined myself to examine my thoughts and behavior and relentlessly toss anything that is hindering me from being my best, most glitzy self. It’s a joyful process of self-discovery, but it also requires commitment and tremendous guts.
