When we live our lives in alignment with our values, the outcome is a life in which you are true to yourself and a life filled with joy and love.

Discovering Something Special in the Ordinary

Today while visiting a local waterfall with my family I glanced down at the sidewalk to discover words: Pouring, Rumbling, Sparkling, Breathtaking, Splashing and Soaking! An ordinary sidewalk transformed by simple words. Several people passed over the words unaware, but I stopped and photographed the moment. I saw something special in an ordinary sidewalk and it graced my day; I was aware!

Taking time to slow down and notice the simply things in life can reveal something special that normally would go unnoticed.

 This week see if you can slow down enough to notice that something special  and share your discovery with us.

Nurturing the Soul - My Studio

My Studio
Finding time to create and nurture my soul with a 5 year old running around can be a challenge, one I know many moms can identify with.  Finding this moment to write is a challenge, I asked my husband to keep my son occupied for 15 minutes.  Then "mommy guilt," creeps in..(sigh)..I strive daily to find balance!   I am the only one who can create balance but this is done by setting boundaries and declaring "time for me!”  I am  the only person who can create my happiness, no one else is responsible for  this.  It’s easy to point the finger at everyone else but I need to look in the mirror when I’m feeling impatient and grumpy, RED FLAG Lisa, “Your tank is empty” get out there and run or get into the studio; NURTURE YOURSELF!
Creating is my way of nurturing my soul! 
How can you nurture yourself and create more balance in your life?

  • Time with Friends

  • Time alone

  • Read a book

  • Get out into Nature

  • Laugh

  • Pray or meditate
Help others nuture themselves and create more balance in their lives by sharing ways that you nuture and create balance in your life.....

Seeing Clearly – Discovering Your Values

The other morning I awoke early and decided to go for a run. Running at dawn is my favorite time, no one is around and the world seems still except for the sounds of my breath and feet hitting the pavement. This is my time; I devote it to nurturing myself. I am able to release tensions and clear my mind. I am always amazed and how I “see and hear” the world around me during a run. This day I saw rabbits nibbling away on dew soaked blades of grass, they scurry off as I approach. The beauty of a yellow snail shell lying against the side of the road with the snail’s head slightly emerged just taking in the day. Finally I noticed the first signs of Falls approach; the maple leaves have begun to turn shades of yellow, brown, and red. Change is continuous and I am changed from this run, I have taken time to nurture myself and feel better for tending to this deeply needed value!

What are values? I understand values to be the following:

• Values define how we see ourselves and how we behave.

• Values determine with whom we associate.

• Values define how we live our lives; they shape us.

• Values motivate and provide direction; they are emotional and deeply held beliefs.

             Sample list of values:

Friends, Healthy, Family, Career, Faith, Giving Back, Create, Honesty, Leadership, Courage, Loyalty, Nature, Integrity, Kindness………

This week begin to determine what you value, can you list three?
Describe in as much detail as possible what your perfect day looks like, this may help you to determine your values.

Please share what you have discovered, it may be the inspiration another needs to begin their journey into awareness!

What Do You See?

It's not what you look at that matters,
it's what you see.

My Ah-Ha Moment - Learning to Live with Intention

Four years ago I sat in a glider cradling my son hoping he would fall asleep. I felt tired, anxious; I was in a daze as are many moms during the middle of the night. But this night was different; this was the night I gained awareness. I needed to live my life with intention, to create balance, simplicity, to create harmony and more joy. It was time to rediscover my values, to no longer live on autopilot. The conception of the Harmony Bowl began.

You are on a journey; make the journey one of joy. When we live our lives in alignment with our values, the outcome is a life in which you are true to yourself and a life filled with joy and love.

Every morning I reflect on my values, I pull from my Harmony Bowl several pewter nuggets which are stamped with words representing my personal values. I reflect upon the words and then make a mental and conscious choice to incorporate these values into the day. Today I pulled “Family, Career, and Friends.” I've invited my in-laws over for dinner, plan to watch “Date Night” with my husband and son tonight, found a quiet place to work, and purchased a card for a special friend. These are my values; this is what matters to me.
  • What matters to you?
 Pay attention to how you spend your day, this is a clue to what you value. If you realize you are spending your energy on things that aren’t important to you then you are becoming aware and can begin to make positive change.

  • This week notice how you are spending your days, do they reflect what you value?

Share your thoughts so we can grow and encourage each other to live with intention, and create more joy in our lives while living our values.
