Bella Blvd Blog Hop for Stephanie!!

Happy Birthday to a wonderful friend, Stephanie, the owner & designer of Bella Blvd!

Even thought it's Stephanie's birthday, we have some gifts for a few of you lucky readers as well! We know how generous and giving Stephanie is, and we know she would never have a fun blog hop, without a few giveaways up for grabs too. So we got permission from Robin, who works alongside Stephanie in the office, to pick TEN lucky winners, who will each receive a Bella Blvd collection. All you need to do to be entered in the random drawings, is to leave Stephanie your birthday wishes in the comment section. You have lots of opportunities to up your chances, since you can leave a comment on each blog you visit, as you go through the blog hop. There are 26 blogs, plus the Bella Blvd blog, for a total of 27 chances to get your name in the pot. We will randomly choose winners, from 10 randomly choosen blogs, and announce them on Friday!

Amen to THAT!

There are many things that spread and spread and spread...far and wide and deep.
You could be THE ONE who makes a huge difference in not just spreading wonderful things, but in making sure that not so good things don’t spread so much.

One of the best ways you can do this, beautiful soul, is to stop the gossip when it gets to you. One of the fastest moving and most destructive forces around is gossip...and it not only hurts the person(s) who is the subject of the conversation, but it hurts the souls of anyone hearing it or spreading it.

Kindly tell the messenger that you are certain that there are valuable and wonderful things about this person, and that is what you are choosing to focus on...and let it go. You could either keep the story moving, or you could stop it with kindness and truth....

Because you see, it really is the truth....EVERYONE has wonderful things about them that we can focus on. If nothing else, focus on the fact that they are a fellow human being...that should be enough to compel all of us to speak with only kindness.

Back to School.......almost!

So getting ready for BTS (back to school) we had that yearly doctor appointment today.....Princess is measuring in at 4 feet & 4 1/8 inches.......really? at 8 years old!!! YIKES! I better start buying 5 inch heals! Weighing in at 62 pounds and both land her in the 65% for her age. Shocking.....I thought the height would of been a higher %.

Still has 20/20 vision....and passed her hearing test as well. Still struggling with some allergy issues...but all in all it was a very good appointment!

So, now we need to finish getting the school supplies and pack up the back pack! Figure out the BTS outfit for the first day and we should be good to go!

She is on her way to Third Grade.....I can't wait for all the fun we are going to have!

who is she now?

A little something I created for the Bella Blvd Blog!

Being a Bella Blvd Artista for the company has been a very fun adventure! Being close personal friends with the owner/designer Stephanie Hunt is my most favorite part! Not to forget the great friendships I have with the other Artista's! Thanks for the opportunity Stephanie for allowing me to create for your wonderfully successful company!!

Finally moving forward...

Our souls always knows when it's time to move on. We fight those feelings, we resist them...we try to stuff them down or shoo them away....but our souls are persistent and keep sending fact, messages usually start coming from every direction when it is time.

It is hard to move on. It is hard to embrace the changes that moving on brings. It is hard to navigate away from what is comfortable and what we know....even when we know we've outgrown it or that it is destructive to us in many ways. Many times, we stay in places where we know we don't belong simply because it is what we know...and we are too afraid of moving on and into what we don't know.

Listen to those gentle and not-so-gentle pushes that your soul is trying to communicate. Moving on is important....if we don't move forward, we stay stuck. It's like a stream...or a river...when it stops moving, it gets mucky and contaminated........we need to constantly be finding our flow...we need to be growing and learning and moving.

Move on, sweet friend, if that is what your soul is urging you to do....and keep moving and moving and moving......
Keep moving forward.

WOW.....Brave Girl, thank you! xo

Sometimes things happen in life that are completely out of our control that strip us of our self esteem, confidence, and hope. Often these things continue to taint us and put a stain on our lives for years and years, until they distort the truth of who we really are, until we actually start believing the lies that come along with these kinds of experiences.

You are NOT what has happened to you, no matter what the circumstances surrounding the situation. There is NEVER anything that you do or did that makes you deserve to be treated badly, to be abused, or to have horrible things happen to you at the hands of another.

Be Positive

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain you unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.-Wayne Dyer Positive Daily Inspiration

Love the little birdie....

Are you suffering from destination frustration?

The fact is, we never really do get 'there' and have it stay 'there' for any length of time without the same amount of work that it took to get 'there'.

Because really, the only destination that we truly have control over is our mindset.

& You are there because you are you.
