“Lovers share a sacred decree to seek the Beloved. They roll head over heels, rushing toward the Beautiful One like a torrent of water. . In truth, everyone is a shadow of the Beloved Our seeking is His seeking, Our words are His words. . At times we flow toward the Beloved like a dancing stream. At times we are still water held in His pitcher. At times we boil in a pot turning to vapor that is the job of the Beloved. . He breathes into my ear until my soul takes on His fragrance. He is the soul of my soul How can I escape? But why would any soul in this world want to escape from the Beloved? . He will melt your pride making you thin as a strand of hair, Yet do not trade, even for both worlds, One strand of His hair. . We search for Him here and there while looking right at Him. Sitting by His side we ask, "O Beloved, where is the Beloved?" . Enough with such questions! Let silence take you to the core of life. . All your talk is worthless When compared to one whisper of the Beloved.” . ~ Rumi .

Congrats to the winner of our giveaway! @enroot_flowers! And a huge thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway. . I’m challenging you in the coming week to go love somebody in a tangible way. Buy a stranger’s coffee, smile at your banker, make eye contact with your friend or partner. Choose to love this week (it feels so good!) and remember that generosity (physical, emotional and in spirit) is one of the greatest kindnesses we can give one another. . Photo @ivyandgoldphotography
Happy Sunday my babes! 😍 Life is waiting for you to say “yes!” The first step forward is usually the hardest (no matter who you are) so don’t beat yourself up about how long it’s taking you, just make a decision today to start on your dream. Buy that website domain, take a walk to get your muscles moving, call that friend you’ve been wanting to connect with... Focus on the now and take tiny actions toward your goal and you’ll find it’s not as far away as you’d imagined. .

I’m pushing pause till tomorrow I’m lowering the flag . My heart is broken over the high school shooting in Florida yesterday . Broken . I remember when the Columbine shooting happened. I was in 11th grade English class and the teacher turned on the classroom T.V. where we watched students streaming out of a school, hands on top of their heads. I remember crying for days. . And then it happened again and again and again and I started to become numb. . Yesterday my heart remembered the moments of innocence lost and I’m choosing to let it rock me, I’m choosing to feel the grief over the loss of the the young ones. Life is worth honoring with grief when it is lost. . Love you guys
