Think outside the box.

If I were my own best friend I would tell myself to…

…think outside the box.

***I know, I know, hopelessly cliche! My box happens to be white with a pink ribbon today. Yours might be big and cardboard or small and Tiffany blue or green with yellow spots. It doesn’t really matter. 

What matters is you look at where you are, right now at this moment today, and that is “the box.” It is what you already know, what you do without thinking about it, what you are comfortable with from day to day.  Now… move outside of that box and see what changes. 

Yes, it’s scary. Yes, it’s full of unknowns. Yes, it’s risky. But that’s what makes it so very very worth it! 

A new addition.

Hello everyone!

My apologies for the long silence. I just wanted to let you know I am still here!

On May 4th there was a big (well, let’s make that BIG) change in my life. I had a baby. A wonderful little baby boy.

He has changed my life in ways I could not ever have imagined. The first four weeks of motherhood have been an amazing, exhausting, exhilarating, terrifying, rewarding adventure that changes every day, hour, minute…

Before he arrived I had plans to pre-write a number of posts and be ready to go for afterwards. Something about “business as usual.” And then he arrived two and a half weeks earlier than planned. And all plans went out the window.

Posting may be spotty for the next few months, but please know I am here. I have many thoughts and ideas to share about being “your own best friend” – most of them seem to come to me somewhere between the hours of 2 and 4 am (hours I have not been so well acquainted with for quite sometime).

Thanks for reading! I will be back in the saddle soon and look forward to sharing, drawing, and posting more when I am a little less sleep deprived. 🙂
