  1. Take the time, slow down…..something I often feel annoyed with but decreasing the hurry and taking the time is worth every second. These are six ideas that can help “fill your tank”.
  2. Prayer in a quiet alone zone.
  3. Proclaiming positive affirmation out loud. It does not matter if you believe them. Hearing it out loud helps you believe.
  4. Stating an intention to restore your body, mind and soul back to perfect health.
  5. Silencing the stupid records that feed your head the ugly…”I’m not good enough, deserving enough” crap
  6. Scheduling a morning to just be and not do.

The painting “Pathways” portrays taking the time to appreciate the many intersections and connections that lead us in positive directions. I hope to cross paths with you one day.

“Feeling love and gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” –William Arthur Ward

1. Simply listen to someone with your full attention.

2. Look someone straight in the eyes and say, “You make the world a better place.”

3. Pinpoint something you admire about someone’s commitment to their beliefs—even if you don’t hold them, as well.

4. Smile. Give one away today!

5. Offer to get a coffee for someone.

6. Write a hand-written thank you note, acknowledging things you value about someone and their work.

This opportunity meant pushing myself way out of my comfort zone, but the possibilities were too great to let it pass by. Many friends and family members played such a big part in making this happen that I had to honor their support. When Friday the 13th came, I was getting myself ready for the event in my hotel room. I had a beautiful dress to wear that came from a good friend back home who generously donated her fashion sense to make me feel awesome. This was a huge gift that my friend gave me.

The weather was amazing, and as I walked in, the sight gave me a thrill, and I took the liberty of walking around the compound. I enjoyed many wonderful conversations and took the time to really absorb the art of each room. The designers poured their hearts into their spaces and collectively made the home an inspiration. The Christopher Kennedy Compound was such a huge hit it made features in Dwell Magazine, Traditional Home, Houzz and much more.

2013 was a year of digging through the things I value most and trying to narrow it down to the most essential one, two or three. It’s been a challenge. As I looked back through the challenges life threw at me expressing love and gratitude to my husband, kids and dear friends was an essential and helped get me through the tough times. I also realized that at times I struggle with feeling loved and that I need reminders sometimes, well, a lot of times. Love is a top value of mine and recognizing the importance of expressing that love followed. As emotional, tender human beings the moment we realize how much we are loved, valued or appreciated the healthier and happier we can live. So I am on a journey to help people express their love through my art. A custom painting allowed me a concrete way to tell other people’s story and share their love and legacy through emotion and vivid color.
