My Poem is Being Published! + Why You Shouldn’t Second Guess Yourself

im fabulous affirmation

Happy New Year inspired friends! I have some inspiration and encouragement to share with you today. This is for those of us who have ever felt vulnerable, silly after sharing something with people, or afraid to show our wonderful wacky selves to the world. This is also for those of us who sometimes are our own worst critics, who wonder if anyone will actually care about the stuff we create, who worry too much about what people think, and who sometimes (or maybe often) second guess ourselves. So this is pretty much all of us at some point, right? Something fabulous happened to me recently and it has been a reminder yet again of why I should NOT second guess myself (and why you shouldn’t either).   An Affirmation I … Continue Reading

13422420_10153774604623111_2746143968265206344_o

Yay! It’s here! Today I am sharing the link to my ETSY store with you all so you can check it out. I am SO excited! There are 2 things going on in my store this month to celebrate its launch.  First is that there is a coupon code for 10% off your order and it is good until December 31, 2016 (the code is LAUNCH10).  The second thing is that I am doing a 12 days of Christmas sale, where each day I knock more money off ONE item (the art creation of the day) for a 24 hour flash sale.  Today is the 7th day of Christmas, so I know I am posting this a little late (I’ve been a very busy little fairy elf).  Because of that, … Continue Reading

The Garden of My Life : What the Bees Taught Me About Goals and Dreams

Bekahs Bee Copyright

This is my story of managing multiple dreams and goals at once and how the bumble bees in my garden, along with some wisdom from friends, have inspired me to know that I don’t have to choose and I can pursue all that my heart desires.  Have you ever struggled with keeping the balance between the everyday life stuff and the passions/desires of your heart? Do you ever feel like there isn’t enough time for it all?   As many of you may know, I’ve been doing a lot of things this year (many of which I haven’t revealed here yet!).  Because one of my theme words for this year is “simple”, I have been of this mindset that I “should” only do one main thing and put everything else … Continue Reading

A Wild Turkey Stuck in My Garden (aka The Turkey Who Forgot He Had Wings)!

wild turkey

It’s story time and tonight I am telling you the tale of the turkey who forgot he had wings.  I’m feeling a bit like Beatrix Potter as I say that (writing a tale about an animal in my garden).  Maybe this will become a children’s book of mine.  Who knows?! At any rate, it was funny and inspiring and very, very odd.  And you know, everything has a story.  Maybe you will be inspired to see things a different way in your own life and spin a yarn or two :D. So on we go then!     Earlier this afternoon I heard my pug puppy barking outside and I couldn’t figure out why.  He is not one to carry on about things unless there is something to carry on … Continue Reading

Reclaiming Myself as an Artist: Where I’m Headed in 2016 Part 1

mosaic tile fun

Since I’ve been so busy behind the scenes and a bit MIA here on the blog, I promised in the last post I would share what continues to keep me busy in 2016.  If you missed the details of my life from 2015, you can click HERE to catch up :).  My theme for this year seems to be to create Create CREATE!   As you read last post, I had already started moving towards my own creative business the past 2 years with graphic design jobs here and there, teaching workshops from home, etc. but my “work” life and main income prior to that has been with Melaleuca (the wellness company) since 2008.  Before that I sold Avon for 8 years.  I did these things initially because I was … Continue Reading

Gorgeous Sunset Photos Inspired by Tonight’s Caribbean Blue Sky

sunset

I thought I’d share a simple post from my world tonight.  It is mostly pictures.  Today was my parents anniversary and they invited me over for a little ice cream sundae party.  I was feeling quite tired tonight and was going to get a ride instead of walking, but I’m very glad I chose the walk instead.  The sun happened to just be setting as I took off:       I was walking down the street with a casserole dish of a fresh strawberry mango crisp dessert I had just baked , so I took these photos one handed with my cell phone haha.  Because of the houses and trees in the way I wasn’t able to quite capture the full effect of this gorgeous sunset.  There was a … Continue Reading

I’m Back and I’m Married!!

our wedding day

Hello Inspired Friends!  I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in forever.  I didn’t plan on going on a blogging break for so long.  It all just sort of happened!  You may remember me talking about being engaged and wanting to get married this year.  We hadn’t set a date yet, but I had it in my heart that I wanted to get married on the anniversary of when we first met.  So much stuff was going on over the Winter, and then my I had some graphic design work I was doing, among other things.  I just didn’t know if I could pull it off.  Of course you may have guessed by the title that I did!  We set the date officially back in April some time and then I worked … Continue Reading

The Open Heart Attracts Miracles – Five Minute Friday

Open Heart Affirmation by Rebekah

I’m linking up with the Five Minute Friday Community today to write on the word of the week as usual.   Because I am working on my poetry books, I won’t be writing today’s post in poetry form (but I did read a poem by Walt Whitman in today’s Poetic Friday Podcast).   Today I’m free flow writing unfiltered and straight from the heart.  The word is OPEN.  When I hear that word, the next word I think of is heart.  I think of both the difficulties we face when having open hearts, and the miracles.  The miracles always trump the difficulties.  I thought I’d write on how the open heart attracts miracles today!         Years ago I probably would have said that the open heart attracts drama … Continue Reading

Everyday Miracles-God Sent Me a Heart!

God loves us quote

Sometimes people want to know where my joy despite the tough stuff comes from.  Why am I so perky?  How do such serendipitous things find their way to me? etc.  It really is because of the presence of God in my life.  This is part of my testimony and I know it’s something that not everyone relates to, but I have to be authentically me.  I experience little everyday miracles frequently, and I know that is because of 1. God’s love & grace and 2. My awareness of them.  I am willing and open to receiving them,  noticing them, hunting for them (being a blessings hunter, which you can read more about that on my website’s About page), asking God for them, thanking God for them, and making sure I … Continue Reading
