"I Want More"  The human condition or marketing genius?

Other than time or money, I want more of:



good food

healthy living

the feeling that everything is ok

life is good moments

laughing so hard you cry moments

you too!?! moments


inner solitude



good music

a village


companion ship

relation ships

What I crave

Ask her what she craved and she'd get a little frantic about things like books, the woods, music.  Plants and the seasons. Also freedom. Charles Frazier

I’m going through the workbook section of the Desire Map. My next few posts will be a selection of rapid fire answers to questions in the book.

I crave…

peace, joy, financial security, space, love, achievement, nourishment, follow through, trust, faith, salvation, deliciousness, sensuality, joy, success, praise, health, wisdom, travel, experience, the exotic, family, comfort calm


What I Trust

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on it's own wings. Always believe in yourself. #Photography Quotes #Quotes

I trust my next breath will keep coming. I trust the sun will rise tomorrow. I trust I am in a better place. I trust that I made the right decision. I trust that Tanner has more time. I trust that I am a good mom. I trust that Ethan was my saving grace. I trust that I am surrounded and blessed. I trust that my prayers are answered. I trust that I am guided. I trust that I will get what I want. I trust I will fufill my dreams. I trust that after the darkness comes light. I trust that I love him still. I trust that I will love again.

Desire Map Lesson-Stop Fighting

When we stop struggling to make something go the way we want it to, our energy shifts. We surrender to what is and we become willing to face the facts –and we become present.


I’m going to stop fighting this because

I want peace more than anything.

I’m going to stop pushing this, because

I’d rather do something that’s way easier.

I’m going to change my mind, because

I’ve thought of something else that’s much more fun to do.

I’m going to change my approach, because

I think I’ve found a much better way to go about getting what I want

I’m giving up the fight because I want to be free.

Sometimes it’s ok to realize that what you are chasing may not fit into your life anymore. Maybe it inspired you for a while, maybe it was exactly what you needed at the time, but it’s not right for you anymore….and that’s ok

Some infinities are bigger than other infinities

Can You Remember?

This quote punched me in the stomach a little bit. I’ll come back to this post and answer that question, but I know that I’m not the same person from before…and a far cry from who I thought I’d be when I was a kid.

Can you remember?
