Quote Up!

So I’ve been not so very consistently posting a “Quote of the Week” post every Saturday. Let’s be honest, I don’t particularly like posting on Saturday, even though Saturday is supposed to be an awesome blogging day (I mean, the whole day is free, right? πŸ˜‰ ). So in retrospect of it all, I decided to do a Quote Up! post every now and again to empower ya’ll in one bigger post rather a weekly one – sound good? Tell me your opinion in the comments!

9 quotes that will inspire you


I’m excited to share these quotes with you. They have been an incredible inspiration to me and I am confident they will be for you too. πŸ™‚

Sometimes it’s so easy to begin to overthink everything and become confused, anxious, and wish the life we live would just be somehow better. It’s time to refocus and accept the fresh start that is right in front of us each new day. Continue reading “Quote Up!”

Quote of the Week | #4 & #5

Hey ya’ll! Here I am back from a little blogging break. I wasn’t planning to stay away forever in case you were starting to worry! πŸ˜‰ Blogging actually takes a surprising amount of brain energy. But I say it’s totally worth if I can help ya’ll live better and more beautiful lives… and now I’m back quite prepared, refreshed, and energized. We have to take care ourselves in order to help others. It’s important.

Sooo… Quote of the Week, here we are again! Even better, we have two quotes for this week which are quite related. Need inspiration to get off your lazy bum and just do it? Read on! πŸ˜€

Quote of the Week

I can’t agree more! Actually, that’s why I’m back. We can’t always wait around for that “perfect” moment. Sometimes Jesus has to give me a little nudge (ahem – okay, maybe more than a little… πŸ˜‰ ). Don’t let that little blue underlined word in the quote below hold you back. Stick it under your chair and leave it there! Continue reading “Quote of the Week | #4 & #5”

Quote of the Week | #3

Quote of the Week 3

Hmm… how many times do we catch ourselves being grumpy because someone else is grumpy? Uh-huh, thought so. Now let’s switch that around. How many times do you smile when you see someone else smile? It works both ways! They’re both very contagious – just saying. πŸ™‚

(Did you just smile? πŸ˜‰ )

What are the things you do to change your corner of the world (even the small things are big enough!)?

Inspirational Quote of the Week

I’d dare say that the implications of this week’s quote comes a little closer to home than some of us would admit, because most of us are procrastinators! πŸ™‚ Putting off until tomorrow what can and should be done today, is a bad end to the day and gives a surprisingly (if I may even use that word!) limp boost to tomorrow. You know what I’m talking about – just do it!

Quote of the Week | #1

Quotes are popular, inspiration is popular, and there is certainly a reason for both! Psychology says that just by smiling, you will instantly feel a little better. I’ve even tried it to alleviate pain and it works ways faster than any medication! Inspirational quotes come in somewhere close to the smile. There are sooo many quotes out there, lists and lists of them. Not all of them are awesome, so I thought it’d be great to pick out the best ones and lighten up your heavy daily loads with a weekly quote – the ones that are like gold nuggets of inspiration and cheer!

A Peek into My Life…

While today was supposed to be scheduled for another How to Draw episode, I thought it would be fun to interrupt with a sneak peak into what life looks like through my eyes and a “Quote of the Day”!

In addition to being a blogger, artist, singer/songwriter/composer/pianist, and the occasional dabbling with photography, I’m also a farm girl. Yes, I was born and raised on an organic pastured chicken farm. Quite the adventure! Like yesterday morning when I was milking the family cow, and she knocked the milker over and milk started spewing everywhere! πŸ˜› Which brings us to the profound “Quote of the Day” that came to me after this particular incidence. πŸ™‚

Quote of the Day 1

I’ve selected 10 semi random photos to share with ya’ll. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?! Continue reading “A Peek into My Life…”

In Which I Step Out of My Little Box

I love encouraging people to step out of their normal little boxes and try something new; expand horizons and discover skills they never knew they had. I myself haven’t tried something new for a little while in art.

So in the last several days, I tried out two things. Not new to me in particular, but things that I was always terrible at when I was younger. I can’t say they turned out stellar, but I was pleased with the outcome and definitely plan to work at them more in the future as time allows.

The Face Smacking Truth About Life

Ever since the day I finally gave up, I’ve been living a little differently than before. In that the truth has truly set me free. But I’ve been trying to figure out the balance of what is living for myself, and what is living for God? Or, is there supposed to be a balance?

I’ve put a great deal of thought into it in the last while. How can I live to the fullest of myself for God?

Of course, God wasn’t hanging around laughing at my confusion. As a fact he plopped this bit of advice in my Google+ feed recently. Actually, it is part of a whole post, but this is the part that jumped out and hit me in the face.
