failing

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default. -J.K. Rowling Go for your dreams!!! Even if you fail, at least you tried. It’s all about baby steps. It’s all about learning ...

speak your truth

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original. Whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) You will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. -C.S. Lewis This can be hard for ...

love

Stop, close your eyes and send love from your heart to everyone in the world. Stay in this space for two minutes. It will change everything. – Marianne Williamson Happy Valentine’s Day! XO   ©TracyJoBlowers – you can create beauty with the simplest of things. ❤️  

the things we take for granted

I opened two gifts this morning. They were my eyes. – Anon Sometimes we take things for granted. The people, things, moments that are always there or happen every day. Today, I’m thankful for my vision and for this beautiful view out my window. I used to play a game with my friend, Jody. We ...

thank you

I shot this photo in Sedona, AZ at sunrise. ❤️ Today, let’s just say thank you. Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have. Say I can instead of I can’t. You’ve got this. XO

running vibes

I’m sitting in my hotel in Sedona, AZ and right outside my window, they are setting up for the Sedona Half Marathon, 10k & 5k. It’s only 6:30 AM and I can already feel the excitement and energy. I find myself with a lump in my throat. There is something about running a race that ...

the fog

There’s something about February that makes me feel lighter, like a heavy fog lifting. January is a hard month for me. Anyone else? I feel pressure to start the new year with a bang, to set new goals, work harder, do better. All while reflecting on the previous year. The good and the bad, what ...

let that shit go

  My motto for 2019 – let that shit go! I’m exhausted from worrying and over-thinking. Do you ever feel that way? My life and brain are chaos. A kind of chaos that moving forward, I want to embrace. I love to dabble and try new things. Even at 50 years old, I never want ...

The Wickhams – Jungle Theater

Jungle Theater presents the rolling world premiere of The Wickhams – Christmas at Pemberley now through December 30th! I love seeing behind the scenes, don’t you? Especially when it’s a story that you wish would never end. The first time I saw Pride & Prejudice, it took my breath away. I wanted to know more, ...
