Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.—Mary Anne Radmacher
The past two months have been filled with various experiences that have pushed my edges, opened my heart, and left me disappointed—all rolled into one. I guess that’s this thing we call life, right?

From finding out that the farmette I’d fallen in love with was on a flood plain, to hosting The Last Pig film screening, to spending time with Mom and a gorgeous group in tropical Costa Rica, to learning brush lettering, to forcing my first paper whites, to getting rear ended on a country road, to completing a six-month Positive Psychology program, to starting a garden, to detoxing, to returning to ballet. Whew!

Life is messy and, yet, when I review my varied experiences, I find it helpful to focus on its continued unfolding. The interconnectedness. The lessons. The opportunities. The dreams. And the ways to move forward.

I chose an assortment of photos to speak to these various experiences and wanted to share resource links that I thought you, too, may find helpful.

As we move into this brand new week, notice what wants attention. Does your body crave movement or fresh whole foods? Does your mind need quiet? Are you wanting connection or solitude?

Over the past few months I’ve learned to notice, name, and then navigate what’s going on internally. It clears the cobwebs, provides clarity, and turns off autopilot for that brief moment.

Wishing you love and tranquility. And a long soak in the tub. Preferably with scented bubbles. Bisous. x
