Only by its own…

Only by its own roots does a tree stand tall and only by its own light does the sun shine brightly and bring life to our world. So it is with you – only when you’re trusting, loving and rooted in your true Self will the life that is your highest potential begin to manifest. Only when you are walking on the path of your highest potential will you ever be able to shine brightly and bring light to the darkness in others.

Be Positive


I found this on pinterest recently, which led me to this blog. I couldn’t agree with it more! So, in light of a positive movement with Leopard and Lavender here are a few things I am LOVING now…

  • My sweet little three year old telling me “You are the best mommy ever”
  • The recent snow days that allow my family to stop and just be instead of always having somewhere to go or something to do
  • Reese Witherspoon’s instagram and her recent girls trip to Napa…gotta love time with your girls.
  • Jessica Murnane of OnePartPlant. I heard an interview with her on and I love how she explained why she says she eats a “plant based diet” instead of using the words vegetarian or vegan.  Take a listen here if you are interested.

In the realm of thought, there are two main categories: thoughts of love and thoughts of fear. Every single moment, we choose between the two. If I think with love, then I am more likely to behave lovingly and to attract love from others. If my heart is closed, I am more likely to act out of fear. Fear-based behavior tends not to look like fear but like anger or jealousy; it elicits reactions from others that reflect my fear and not my love.

I found Kate Northrup a while ago through MarieTV and I am gobbling up all the information she has on her blog. I love this particular one about slowing down and living in the moment, and I just love the title.

WTF America?.
