I absolutely love this post -- these are some great ideas! Getting rid of paper is going to make such a huge difference for me; I go through so many paper towels washing up around the kitchen and I don't know why I didn't think to make the switch ages ago! Another tip I use: save any glassware (such as milk bottles) and use them to store filtered water from the tap instead of buying bottles, or store homemade juices. Also, if you make coffee using a French Press instead of a drip machine will cut out wasting those filters that need to be tossed every day; there's also a steel filter you can get for your Chemex that's reusable =) www.threadandbones.com

Legend says that when you can’t sleep at night it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.  Read more »

This is honestly beautiful. Personally, I think it's worth it to stay awake if it means brightening up someone else's dream.
Susan Jizba -Mar 31, 2014, 2:39PM
Wow, that's so interesting...especially because I couldn't get to sleep last night. Usually I'm pretty much "out cold" a few moments after I lay my head on the pillow...but last night I couldn't sleep... sounds like an intriguing idea for a story... who's dream was I in? http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheWeaverOfWords

Post image for The Importance Of Being At Ease

How beautiful it is to be at ease. Writing, saying, hearing, even just thinking the word can bring your mind to such a state. And that very state of ease is so important to our health, both mentally and physically. Read more »

This is so true. If people would just let go of negative earthly vibrations...we would all be more at ease.

As I was getting in as much reading as I could in the 20 minutes in between class and track practice, my roommate said, "My free time before practice is my me time." And I realized that I hardly ever allow myself to relax, because in reality there is always some work I could be doing. I know that I should take more time to be at ease, but I don't necessarily have time for a full yoga class and have trouble letting myself relax. So I would love any suggestions!

It's nice to be reminded that we don't have to be perfect, but tough to find the good in every situation. I guess that's where the growing part comes in. https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthChildArt?ref=si_shop

Post image for Traveling 101

I’ve found myself up in the air a lot recently. For work, for fun and for family. I feel like over the past year, trips kind of just keep turning up unexpectedly, and by no means is this a complaint. Read more »

Such great travel trips! In the past year, every time I've traveled I packed on the lighter side and it definitely made things easier! Not only did I have TOO many options to choose from, I was able to buy things while away. :)

Thank you so much for introducing me to AirBnB! Helps a TON when I have to travel for work. So much easier, cheaper, and nicer than any hotel. New Orleans, here I come! <3

I love this post. Happiness is the most important thing on earth! I'm a firm believer that you need to do what makes you truly, deeply, undeniably happy - regardless of anything that tries to get in its way. Great ideas!

Post image for What Green Says About You

March 17th: a day for green. And just 3 days shy of the spring equinox: yet another time for this beautiful hue. Green… the color of nature, of growth, of life. A tone that represents learning… balance… harmony. If you find yourself drawn to the color green, it may also be true that… Read more »

Yes, I can relate, green has aways been my favorite color and as a young child remembering how lucky I was to have emerald as my birth stone.
cristina -Mar 18, 2014, 10:33AM
green, in all its shades (emerald, kelly, mint, olive, army, etc), has been my favorite color, the color I am most drawn to, for as long as I can remember. I remember being young and coloring and not liking what I colored if there wasn't green in it... it looked like something was missing haha My prom dress was emerald green. My gorgeous gown I wore for my senior voice recital for graduating from college in music was the most gorgeous shade of emerald green! When Pantone named emerald the color of the year last year I freaked! All my friends know, if it's green, I'm gonna like it and want it ;) This post describes me TO A T! I can't explain how ME this post is hahaha I'm officially creeped out :) how can the colors your attracted to say so much about who you are??! That's impressive!

This totally happens to me almost every night - I'm always too comfortable or sleepy to write or draw what pops into my head!
Rita -Mar 17, 2014, 9:57AM
I don't know who said that phrase above, but I remember reading that the painter Salvador Dali had this amazing creative process: He would sit with a spoon and try to fall asleep, the moment he did the spoon obvisously would fall in the floor, he would wake up with the noise and go painting, because that way he had triggered his subconcious! The amazing surreal creations he left us are basically a gift of the sleep! :)

I definitely can relate to that, and red is one of my favorite colors! x Kenzie http://easy-lucky-free.com

I used to rarely wear red...now I wear it all the time. And it has definitely coincided with an increase in my confidence and happiness. The ambition and the short attention span describe me perfectly. I'd like to believe that I'm magnetic and interesting, but I'd have to ask my friends.
