Hello there! Im noticing some new faces here after posting my daughters superhero juice story and I want to say a big 👋 to everyone! Thank you so much for leaving such LOVELY motivating and uplifting messages on @medicalmedium account, I loved reading them so much. . I’m Jenn and my hope is to inspire even one of you to find joy in life’s simple moments. Like ocean waves, my personal journey to feeling whole in the quiet has its highs and lows. I have learned that both bless us with an opportunity: for gratitude; for growth. When waves come crashing down, uneasy feelings of fear and anxiety surfaces. I try to see it as a chance to clear these profound emotions and build my innermost faith in the unwavering formation of my own ocean—as waves will indeed rise again. We may not have control with what happens TO US, but we CAN elevate our minds and illuminate our spirit to feel peace even in the midst of chaos. . So let’s slow down a bit, take a deeper breath and quiet the noise— to see the beauty that is in front of you. . This one of my favorite photos of me and my husband; before marriage, before kids, before our home. We had no idea at the time of all the momentous chapters we would venture. We had our love and the excitement for the future. Today he rides the waves right next to me—still holding my hand. ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . “Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.” —Tao Te Ching

Perception and paradigms are like personalized lenses through which we all see the world. No two are the same. . Caption this photo in the comments of what you think was going through my head... . I'll shoutout my favorites and DM anyone who comments about what was really going on. . Your paradigms will effect the story that you come up with.

🌿Happy Earth Day!🌿 . Today I’m excited to share the all ways @agirlandthedesert is eco-friendly🙌🏼. . 🌎 Reduce, reuse, recycle. . - REUSE & RECYCLE - I never waste leftover clay. Unbaked clay scraps either end up being used as a base for another clay project or mixed into other colors when I’m working on something new. Baked clay pieces that didn’t turn out right go straight to my kids for play or crafting with them. . . - REDUCE - I try to find materials second hand as much as possible. This is a great way to lessen waste! I always use fresh clay, but I try to find high quality clay tools, tassels, packaging for shipping, fiber etc, in our local thrift stores. It’s amazing what you can find brand new and unused from thrifting. This is my favorite way to be eco friendly with my shop! . . 🌿What is your favorite way to reduce waste and stay eco-friendly??
It really is! There are artists getting paid a lot of money to make art that some people think is rubbish! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! ❤️ Make art of any kind. Write a song for your kids, crochet a hamster hat, do a still life drawing no matter how bad you think it will turn out. ❤️ The more you exercise your creativity, the more creative you will become and yes, creativity can absolutely be learned! ❤️ One of the first steps to boosting your creativity is something called capturing. Carrying a sketchpad or notepad around to capture ideas before they disappear from your brain. I sometimes use the memo app on my phone. Salvador Dali captured his ideas in something he called the hypnagogic state. ❤️ I'll tell you a little bit more about me. I have a blog but I would much rather be drawing than writing. I'm not a great writer as I don't practice enough. Every so often I'll get weird ideas in my head, so I'm gonna leave you with a crappy poem I wrote on one of those occasions! I promise it's not as bad as Vogon poetry! ❤️❤️❤️ Never before had the people of Nunavut Laid their eyes on a brown, hairy coconut. Until one day, a group of swallows Carried one there and others followed. Nobody knew how many swallows it took To deliver a coconut to this faraway nook. The people asked, "Can we add this nut to our soup?" And the swallows replied, "That's not a nut, it's a drupe." ❤️❤️❤️
Day 22 #sidetable for #myhousethismonth And I’m rather sad this gorgeous weekend is nearly over, although I have missed mini me @holly.haralambous I am always a little anxious after I’ve had a few days off work, I find it difficult (actually impossible) to relax and prefer to keep myself busy. But hopefully I can keep that chilled feeling and learn to feel less guilty about not working every once in a while. Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. #seekinspirecreate#modernfarmhouse#baileyshomestore#andbreathe

Сегодня моё страдальческое «сапожник без сапог — фотограф без фотографий» исправил любимый муж 🥰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ К тысячам счастливых людей еще +1 счастливый человек в магнолиях 😇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ И вот смотрю на эти кадры, и хочется говорить о счастье☺️, о том, как важно замечать мир вокруг, соприкасаться и радоваться своему присутствию в нем ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Цветущей и уютной вам весны! 🌿🌸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓Как вам такие живые кадры? ❓Угадаете, сколько сделано дублей? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #julirom_inspiration
Think of a moment when your fear was suddenly proved unfounded and you were surprised by joy. ⠀⠀ A moment when something you thought you lost forever was found again and you could hardly believe your eyes. ⠀⠀ Such was Easter, and it was a beautiful one indeed. Even if our pastor told Deanna and I that our late entry and sneaking in the side looked a bit like the walk of shame.
Simplicity speaks volumes. A little throw back on the dreary Monday morning give me all the feels. This piece is about 10 years old and it still makes me fall in love with it all over again. 🥰 It amazing to see how much your art evolves over the years and then some things don’t really change.
