Hide and Seek

My grandson loves to play hide and seek.

So every time we visit we play.

But this last time it got me to thinking about my goals and dreams.  Am I hiding from my dreams or seeking them out?

My ideas may seem silly to many but honestly I always want to live my life expressing myself creatively and to not waste time worrying about what others think.  So I will continue to make my YouTube videos, take my outfit of the day pics and just post about my awesome life because it makes me happy.  I hope that you do the things that make you happy.  Don’t hide from happiness and the things that contribute to it.  Seek it out.

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 129 – I have plans….

IMG_2849

Several years back a friend from the past had shared this verse with me…..Jeremiah 29:11.

We were discussing life passions, a topic I LOVE to discuss and she shared it at a time when things were going “well” for me. 

As the years passed I would reflect on that verse from time to time and our conversation we had when she shared it.  I of course had no idea that this particular verse would become a great source of comfort for me during some more challenging times in my career and life.  But the steadfast truth remained….the Lord knew the plans that He had for me.

The Lord’s plans really didn’t follow the vision I had for my future but they were the best plans for me and I am truly thankful for where I am right now.  I encourage you to be a source of encouragement to others and don’t be afraid to share what is on your heart.  You never know what comfort those words will bring to someone….maybe not that particular day but in the future.

I still have the piece of paper that she wrote the verse down on.  A plain yellow sticky note.  Every time I look at it I say a prayer for my friend and am thankful for her boldness in sharing. 

What will you do to encourage someone today?

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa

Tuba talk…

This *thought* from Dove chocolates reminds me of the quote from Henry David Thoreau, 

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

I encourage all my friends to walk to your own beat….whether it’s a tuba or a drummer or a kazoo.  Walk with passion and conviction. 

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
