Happy Sunday folks! What’s on my mind today is PATIENCE. ————-
Fun fact: resin takes 3 days to actually fully cure, and it requires patience that I often do not have! I work with kiddos so most of the patience in my body is used on them and NOT for my art. Kids require an extreme amount of patience, which in turn requires a lot of energy to be expended. Patience is one of my biggest struggles because I have impulse control problems, attention/focusing issues, AND on top of that I use up all my patience at work. But do you know what has taught me patience in the past 5 years of my life? NATURE. It sounds weird, but being more connected to the earth has helped ground me a lil more and helped me learn to slow down. Sometimes I’ve learned this the hard way in nature, and sometimes it’s been more subtle. Either way, it’s a bit overwhelming by how much you can learn from nature if you just sit still. What a concept! —————-

Life has thrown me a few curve balls and had to take a step back to regroup.
My schedule is now opened up for all my lovely Swan River clients ♥️ As I do not have a set date as to when I will be leaving Swan River permanently, book now to secure your session.
Some say don’t give up,
Some say move on.
Some say believe in God
Some say you can’t change your destiny
Some days God listens, well some days he’s shut
staying positive & manifesting
But there’s nothing we can tell
It just becomes so heartbreaking 💔
Finally have some kind of gear! I'm hoping this will somewhat help us a bit on our outings. His outwardhound vest seriously has nothing on it. 😅 I would love to get some kinda of patches that say service dog but unfortunately it's just not in the budget lately. I love how bright this #patienceandlove leash wrap is though!!
Staying home with my son often means enduring a barrage of demands. Most demands are related to drinks, snacks or requests to watch a show on tv that doesn’t seem to exist. 🤷♀️ White gorilla show?! Rather than feeling like a trained sea responding to every demand, I retreat into my bathroom for some deep breathing and self care by way of eye Gel Masks. Guess who sneaks in to get a snuggle? Parenting is challenging and I know I don’t have to love every aspect of it, but overall I feel very grateful to have both of my sweet boys. 💕 #stopthescreaming#smilesandscreams#parentingchallenges#deepbreath#stopscreaming#boymom#quietmoment#whatdidyousay#patienceandlove
I will say it feels really amazing to be growing our own garden! A daily reminder of patience.

Birds 🐦 and feathers y’all ..... so this morning I was going through my ritual, my morning formula that I use to start my day… I have affirmations I say, journaling 📓 I like to do, list of gratitude, prayer 🙏🏻 and meditation, inspirational reading…etc etc .
At the beginning of may I set some goals and benchmarks for the next few months, and yesterday I shared with my team I really needed some support because I was playing whack a mole with some doubts that have been creeping up. It’s getting near the end of May and I’ve not hit the marks I wanted to. Faith is something I have to work for , it’s a muscle and I’m a get 💩 done kinda girl so often patience is something I have to work for too . .
God speaks to me through birds and feathers ... I’ve been seeing them in the physical like crazy and hear that inaudible voice telling me “do not dig up in doubt what you’ve planted in faith” ... I hopped on Pinterest to find some scripture , typed “illustrated scripture” in the search bar and what pops up ???
Birds . Feathers. A divine reminder of “hey I got you girl” ... so now I’ll put my head down and keep pressing on , with a gentle reassurance that it’s all working out for my greatest good - results are showing , and my job is to loosen the grip on my expectations on the timeline .
Gardens are good for the soul💚 Every new bloom is a gift. Sometimes we can be so busy with life that we don’t even notice. Spring reminds me that it’s necessary to soak in what matters☀️ And smell it too😂

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” PROVERBS 3:5-6 We captured this image at sunset & it reminds me of this verse. No matter where I am along my journey, I know that Gods plan is great. I’ve learned that his timing is good, and that I just have to trust Him. He gave me Jason @elborgor, my husband, who is everything I ever prayed for. He led me to Idaho, where I never thought I’d be. This verse reminds me that life’s desires are not instant. That we have to be patient. And on your best and worst days, know that Gods Love is always there. 💕✨ 🌅 #proverbs3#proverbs#proverbsdaily#loveyourjourney 💗 #vipkidteacher#teachonline#mauihawaii#grateful 🙏 #godsloveneverfails#faithquotes#patienceandlove
