It is no surprise that so many enjoy a cup of coffee or tea to start our day. It creates a moment for us to gather our strength and find our peace before the day rushes on. As the steam lifts from our cups so do our wishes for the day.

a little love :: photo cards are about spreading a little love to yourself and/or friends and family. Sometimes we just need a little reminder to believe in wishes again, that we are beautiful, it is okay to let go, we have all have a beautiful story to share, and we can find such simple but profound healing by breathing deeply.
Send a whole packet or send one in a note and surprise someone who could use some joy in their mailbox. Tuck the cards around your house or leave them around town as a random act of kindness. Just share a little love.
Each packet will be sent with a wish that a little love will find its way to you each and every day.
Fear is a strong force but we can choose to recognize it and then let it go. That is not easy, at least for me. Growing up fear was with me as I made decisions. Mostly, the fear led me to choose what would allow me to go unseen, fade into the wall and not make much of a splash. I did what I was supposed to and tried not get into trouble with anyone with authority.
It served its purpose but at a price.
I learned not to shine.
I feared everything.
In high school, I began this long, slow journey of letting go of some of my fears that had held me captive but this fear(less) skin is still unfamiliar. It is easy to return to those patterns of fear and making decisions based on them. One thing that I have found that is stronger than my fears is my tenacious love. It lures me away from the wall and tells me to shine brightly. This tenacious love holds me close and shows me how to let go of each and every fear one deep breath at a time. Choosing love takes practice. I created the art above as a reminder that though fear is my old pattern, I have within me a tenacious love.
