Notes to Self || Embrace the Chaos


Dear Self, 

When life gets all messy and chaotic, don't become indignant and hostile, clenching your fist in frustration. Release your grip and embrace it.

Embrace the chaos.

Set yourself free.

Learn to just be. 

Be here. Not back there or over there, just here. This moment.

Note to Self || Just Do It

Dear Self,

Don't talk to be heard or write to be published or make art to be famous. 

Don't do it because everyone else is doing it. 


Do it because you love it. 


Do it because you are alive. 


Do it because it makes you come alive. 


Do it because it makes others come alive. 


Do it because it's who you are and you can't not do it. 


And whatever you do, be sure you do it. 

Life is short. You were spoken, written, and created with a purpose and for a purpose. Do the same.

Note to Self || Live Artfully

Dear Self, 

Life is art. 

Art is messy. Beautiful. Chaotic in the making. Dangerous. Imperfect. 


You were meant to create a masterpiece, a colorful, vibrant, and yes messy life. 

Rejoice in the process of creation, of your story in the making, of life in wet paint that is still drying. 


Live artfully here

Note to Self || You are Loved

Dear Self, 

Never forget you are loved. No matter how you feel about yourself they those little people following you around all day have a different view of you. 

You might feel like a huge failure, ugly, and guilty but to them you are and will always be Super-Mom, because guess what? 


At the end of it all your love always shines through and they know. 

They are loved. 

So keep doing what your doing and rest in knowing that you are transferring the truth of His love to your children. 

We love because we were first loved, they love because they know the same to be true.

Note to Self || Be Attentive.


“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.”   ― Thích Nhất Hạnh

Whatever you do today. Enjoy it.


 
Don't miss the hidden beauty of your moments.


You just have to learn to be presence, here. It is one of your greatest struggles, I know.

Learning to be internally, intentionally, still.

::
 
What are the moments you struggle to be attentive in? Practice being still in them, stop rushing and fretting and be present. Make an intentional effort today. Be attentive.

Note to Self || Live Truth

“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

 
I know it is hard. hard to believe in that something that is called you. You think you are not worth it, not good enough. 
 
You know all the things that make you feel alive?
 
 
They are what you believe in. They are your passion, your truth. They are apart of you, there is no use denying them. They will always be there.
 
You can either keep ignoring them and live dishonest with who you are or you choose to believe in them, in yourself, who you were made to be, the way you were created to worship and glorify.
 
Be you.
 
Let the truth set you free. The truth of who you are, what you believe in, what makes you come alive.
 
 
What makes you come alive? Do you live honestly? Believe in yourself, believe in truth and live it, live truth.
