In A Nutshell

As an ambitious 25 year old still figuring out parenting and my roll in the adult life I'm determined to get the most out of myself. Right now my main personal values are Challenge, Curiosity, Self-respect, and Belonging.

Every person has an inner voice telling them what they need, it says "wake up now" in the morning it says "don't eat that" when we're full. Growing up means learning that nobody can be that voice for you. You have to learn to hear it, and find the strength to listen over every other voice calling for your attention and telling you what you should and shouldn't be doing.

On top of the World

I am so excited, really I am, finally after much thinking and writing...

My brain has conceived and in the next couple weeks of labor it shall birth an amazing brain child!

In the evening as soon as I lay my head down on the pillow and close my eyes ideas start coming together independently, this really doesn't take any work. If I spend the day purposefully trying to figure something out, say a layout for a piece of art I want to work on all I have to do is spend a couple hours browsing pinterest and enjoying the process of finding beautiful things then without fail ideas come to me in flashes as soon as I close my eyes at night... as you can imaging that doesn't always give me a lot of sleep lol.

I jump out of bed and am sketching for the next hour or three, and the next day try to figure out how I can complete the project. So if there's a project you just can't figure out, have fun looking at other peoples solutions, immerse yourself in it and be sure to keep a notebook close to the bed cause something's going to come to you, Surprise yourself and try it!

Here's the finished product of a wedding present idea that arrived in my mind last month for my brother in law

The wedding portrait idea
So why am I excited?
Because of the idea that made it's way onto paper at 3 AM last week, actually a couple ideas but I'm going to have to choose one and run with it. It's an idea for how to create an easily customizable menu board and nutrition tracker for the teen girls I work with and the independent living program.

Also I've been dreaming about my ideal wardrobe and dream home, which leaves anyone in a good mood. I found the property I want, it's just a bit early in the life plan for that particular property, sigh. It's 58 acres 10 minutes outside the city oh drool. Well the dream is that in five to eight years I'll be in a position to purchase my dream acreage and build a great family home on it, just in time for my littlest to be old enough to enjoy horses with me.
