#hope for #breatheseptember2018 . . "If you're gonna make a path, you're gonna have to hope. If you're gonna make a path, you're gonna have to go." .  Words from a song I heard today. .  Taking more inspiration from @RadiantJane 's book about Loving Kindness today.  Hope feels like compassion and love, like possibilities and a new pair of shoes to walk in and new glasses to see through. Hope is rebirth and forgiveness. I am on a perpetual mission to find permission to hope. . .  #alifeofintention #mindfulness #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset
Kindness never goes unpaid. And the gal who has many friends will never be poor even when she is broke. .  Today I have immense gratitude for my community who moved in to support me when I need them yesterday. As I have given my support unconditionally, so did they and I am in Awe of the human capacity for compassion. Borrowing it always from you to put back into me. As @radiantjane says in her book on Loving Kindness, "tto create cozy little nooks of okay-ness" within myself.  I wrote a gentle thoughtful blogpost that expresses these thoughts on your aid yesterday and uncovers what I do to avoid vulnerability. Link in my profile to my blog at Shalavee.com. . .  Mrs. Cheesewheat is a stray who lives on our back porch and only let's me pet her. She is beautiful and dear and so cute with the fallen leaf on her head. . .  #breatheseptember2018 #taleswithfriends #catsofinstagram #mindfulness #behe#beherenow #communitycounts #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons
The beauty I grew from seed. Were I to disparage my gardening skills, I can just gaze on this natural wonder and know my grace. . . "FEEL YOUR TRUTH AND SPREAD IT WIDE". On the blog today, thoughts on how we as women subjagate ourselves and what I do and don't want to model for my wee sassafras gal. Link in my profile to the piece titled A Woman's Worth on Shalavee.com. . .  #breatheseptember2018 #liveyourtruth #ontheblog #togetherwerise #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #backyardshennanigans
There's beauty in the world in the most unlikely places. It's just in how we look at what we see that makes it beautiful. Silk flowers, abandoned car, and mailbox.  Seeing beauty around me today as a reflection of gratitude and hope. I hope you can do the same. .  #breatheseptember2018 #taleswithfriends #onmywalk #ourcreativeselves #vsco #mywisdomlessons
Going gently into my 52nd year today with a brunch at our favorite diner and a date with a playground for Fiona. Slowly I roll, into this new phase but I am fully prepared to be kinder and gentler to myself. Compassionate for the changes that are happening.  #breatheseptember2018 . .  #fionamariepeach #kidsofinstagram #birthday #storyofmyday #beherenow #overthehill #midlifemama #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie
Free for #breatheseptember2018 .  Spent the day "Francoising" aka faffing my house for an impromptu birthday potluck tonight. I was feeling kinda grumpy in the beginning of the day honestly. But all the cleaning and flower arranging made me feel more myself. It was my day afterall and now full oof all the lovely attention and food I devoured, I feel free of my worries and grumpiness. . .  #taleswithfriends #flowerarrangement #mywisdomlessons #turning52tomarrow #storyofmynight
#listen for #breatheseptember2018 .  I am listening to whatever my little heart wants to call important. Today I tied together thoughts on boundaries with self-love and compassion. Fortifying and forgiving the soul its humanity leads to more integrity of action and less doubt. Others judgments won't matter when you know who you are. It will be more telling of who they are. . .  On the blog, I was inspired by a newsletter from Susannah Conway to explain my relationship and boundaries around social media. I know why I am here on IG. Connections.

#dream for #breatheseptember2018 - Where once my future was behind a closed door, I now see it as a dream through a window. I don't know what it smells like or sounds like but I can almost make out what it could feel like. Hopeful and easy. Authentic and enlightened as I greedily gobble up opportunities and connections. . .  Standing staring it down willing myself through this glass. . .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention
Listen for #augustbreak2018 / I listened to myself yesterday. Really really listened and what I heard behind and beyond that chattering resistance was Fear. Always. And so I asked what were the words. And my shadow child self said she was afraid she'd fail. And I gave her/myself the compassion I deserved. I assured her this was a possibility but so was achievement. And I felt better. . . . .  #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #taleswithfriends #intuition #emotionalintelligence #selfdevelopment #innerwisdom #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #playground #martinakstatepark
#move for #breatheseptember2018 . .  The days move on toward the autumnal solstice and my 52nd year on this spinning top we share. I have become much more aware of the light shifting as I've aged. I look forward to certain natural spotlights in my home. Does anyone else stalk their lightbeams? . .  On my blog, i speak about The Year of Doing . You have to actually do the stuff to get it done. But sometimes,"when I went in for the work kill, there was a chorus of cants." So I'd wait it out and then return to prove I could. And I did.

Do you have a definition of success or one for enough? I considered what mine are in my blog post today titled With No Definition of Success Or Enough, You’re a Hamster on a Wheel . . . "Having sweet smart healthy independent children feels like success to me...But what of enough? Or will whatever you have always be enough?" . .  Do you feel like your standards need to be lowered? Like you're missing an end point which will sum your efforts up?

#view from my walk for #breatheseptember2018 --- I have recommitted to 30 minutes of aerobic activity each day. I have less pain, more time, and the weather is about to break. So I chose a walk yesterday morning as opposed to artificial light at the gym. And this little house is always there but this shot caught my eye. There's a hiding factor that feels familiar. . . .  #onmywalk #dentonmaryland #storyofmyday #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #selfdevelopment #beherenow
I've been hungry to get back to yummy self time. The starvation has ceased as I am now stepping back into my space (physically and mentally). I #nourish my self-trust as I show up for me. Revering me-time , quiet space to listen to and explore my thoughts, curiosities, questions, and whims. .  Setting intentions for writing and art, creating ways to keep myself to these tasks. .  I want compassion and kindness to guide my soul goals and fear can watch and concede defeat. . On the blog today, a pretty comprehensive list of ways in which you can create self-trust! Link in my profile to Shalavee.com and the piece entitled Seven  Methods to Help Develop Self-Trust. .  #breatheseptember2018 #createeveryday #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #introvert #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #personaldevelopment #innerartist #ourcreativeselves #writersofig #ontheblog
First Day of Kindergarten! (She already has one year of pre-K bus riding under her belt) 💜 😉 💜 I feel relieved and slightly untethered as my children go off to school today. As much as I've been giddy and gleeful at the thought of this day coming, I'm anticipatory that this means I have to buckle down and get serious about my own work. Enter the nerves around visibility and vulnerability..........................So be it. Gonna meditate on some Loving Kindness each day. Swipe right to left to see Fiona get on the bus. . . . . .  #breatheseptember2018  #taleswithfriends #carolinecountymaryland #fionamariepeach #backtoschool #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons
#augustbreak2018  While August threatened to be a suckling vortex of doom (see blog posts on Surviving my speech and having my butt exposed), it ended up going by more quickly than any August ever. Instead of counting how many more hot boring days we would have to endure, it was full of band practice and nailing down my theory on the inverse relationship between creativity and anxiety. It felt satisfying and productive and clandestine.  Thank you to @SusannahConway as always, for creating this place for us to connect and explore our possibilities in our own ways. . . . Today's positive and thoughtful blogpost is titled Proactive Possibilities. What a way to end the month!

#augustbreak2018 / A book as a door : words from a wise woman working magic in my soul.  I told my therapist I do not have any down time to read. Truth for Summer as moments are grabbed and winged. But my intention for Fall is to dive again into myself. . .  @radiantjane Jane Reeves, an Instagram acquaintance, wrote this book A Heart of Gold: Lessons on the Path of Loving Kindness. She, like many of the women I have the privilege of knowing on IG, is on a similar journey as I am. And her words in the intro are familiar. "I've been on a spiritual healing path from a very young age. It is who I am and what I do each day." Her practice of loving kindness seems the exact book I need right now to open the door to the next place I need to be. I'm hopeful and grateful. And proud to support her journey as I travel mine. . . .  My post yesterday To Be at Home at Home speaks to my longing to be at ease not only when I'm in my house, not overwhelmed by the zillion things I should do, but also at peace within the walls of my soul.

Pamper Yourself for #augustbreak2018 . I have become good at timely pedicure and hair repairs. But when days get overwhelming, too busy and too much, I find myself craving alone time. Retreat time. Simply sitting and writing a blog post to find out what I think makes me happy. Time to create in my craft room is luxurious and necessary to reset. Non-negotiable for me is taking time to listen to inner me and Be. . . .  #outdoors #storyofmyday #gratitude #writersofig #beherenow #createeveryday #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #selfdiscovery
In the Distance for #augustbreak2018 .  Yesterday I met with Meg and Francie, the keepers and coordinators for the Retreat House in Hillsboro, Md. They are so lovely and we booked a date for me to conduct another Creativity Workshop there in November. . .  The house was built on the grounds of the old church and graveyard. A quick reminder to get it done before you die?This was an action I've had on my To Do list since March. It feels so good to have it planned now. Momentum instead of dread. Lovely people to share my passions with. . .  On the blog today, a post titled Having My Butt Exposed, a summary of how I had my butt exposed both literally and figuratively this past week. And how that is exactly how I need to keep doing it. . . .  #taleswithfriends #liveauthentic #beherenow #hillsboromd #manefestation #creativityfound #ambassadorofcreativity #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons
💜Younger me💜  At 45, this woman decided she wanted a baby. And proof, there was a baby at 46. That woman knows to embrace the hard stuff grows you in the best ways. Vulnerability and risk have made me stronger. And having to learn to be compassionate for Fiona has taught me to be so for myself. . . . .  #augustbreak2018 #fionamariepeach #wholeheartedliving #taleswithfriends #selfdiscovery #liveauthentic #mywisdomlessons
How Instagram's community witnessed me and helped banish my anxieties, today on my blog. Being vulnerable gifted me with myself again. "I’d never experienced community and was completely unsure of what it meant and how I was supposed to do it. I just knew that being witnessed by these wonder women from inside their hearts was the greatest gift ever. I watched and I listened as they showed me what vulnerability looked like and what it gives you. And my intuition told me that, despite what everyone said about social media, there was something really good going on here." A brief and empowering read.
