been wondering.

Photobucket the other weekend i made this necklace for this beautiful girl i met at creative escape. she is embarking on a wonderful new adventure in her life. she is also going through a heartbreaking challenge. i usually do not like to talk or write about negative things on my blog, but these days i have just been wondering about a lot of things. since the new year, it seems like so many people are going through so much darkness, struggle and trial in their lives and at times for me it is just so hard to comprehend it all. i have and continue to be blessed with so much good in my life, and i have never taken one second for granted. one of the things that i try to instill in my life on a daily basis is 'conscious mindfulness'. to be in the moment, to be present, to be thankful. all of these innocent and amazing people that have been dealt such struggle are all so wonderful and did not ask for any of it. but i also believe that in life the dark moments and dark days exist for the sole purpose to bring about more light, more hope, more resiliency within those that are in the midst of it all. like it or not, we are all going to be participants in life's messy game and i guess the more open we can be to the waves of change, the better we can face head on whatever is to come our way. on another note, these days i have been enjoying my ipod, reading 'the power of now', drinking green tea, journaling, making homemade soup and am so excited that american idol has started up again. savoring the simple everyday indulgences that inspire me and energize my heart.
