A Tale of Two Spinachs. Did you ever expect something and then rather awkwardly discover it wasn't that way at all. That your assumptions had perhaps even held you cack from something you could have been enjoying all along? . .  Our friend Drew has a  story about Spinach salad . On my blog, I recount the story and the lesson.

They do as we do, not as we say. . .  A conversation today in the blog about ditching my "When I Lose the Weight" clothing. I am mortified and embarrassed by the lack of self-acceptance and sheer self-bullying that is our American Female birthright. And not for the first time I am putting myself in this brief blogpost.

A perfectly lovely Summer day spent in the backyard. A breeze that has interrupted the stiflingly hot weather. A hydrangea that has finally bloomed. A pillow bed on the picnic table. Grilling fresh food. New sand in the sandbox. And tomato plants and children that are growing so fast! . . .. .  #backyardblooms #backyardshennanigans #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #beherenow #creativemamas #mywisdomlessons
When they are obnoxious to oneanother all day getting on my nerves and then I happen to catch that one righteous moment when they are being cute.  Friday Night Movie and Family Night! . .  #taleswithfriends #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #siblings #familytime #mywisdomlessons #creativemamas
I am increasingly aware that the cruelest casualty of my fear is the hope it thieves from my soul. My blog post today is about my fighting for my garden hope. I have long been hopeless about my garden that once gave me such pleasure. The hopelessness shows up everywhere when change is unacceptable.

[ Honor ] Spring #soul_selfie Challenge '18 .  After many years of denying me, my choice has finally become to honor my needs, my inklings, my curiosity, and to use my talents. I honor my true nature and my inner child by exercising my need to connect, to play, and to say what I need to say. That was, and is, my impetuous behind hosting these  Soul Selfie challenges and the Our Creative Selves ones. To hand the authenticity aha to others as well as make new friends and reconnect with old ones. .  Thank you to everyone for your sincere vulnerability and enthusiastic participation in my Soul Selfie Challenge. I enjoy this so much and I am honored to have you join me and witness this special event. Join me in October for the next Soul Selfie Challenge. .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention
How do you frame what is happening at the time? Sometimes you have to just wait and see what it will mean. .  Bad news and good news, making decisions and keeping on keeping on. That what's going on here. .  Oh and grumpyy March winds and impending doom weather. . 🌱❤🍀🐣Happy Spring🐣🍀❤🌱 .  #taleswithfriends #yellow #firehydrant #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred #nothingisordinary #thehappynow #liveunscripted #pursuepretty
Soul Medecine for #manifestingthroughmay .  When I think of what causes my soul to hurt, this little girl can be one major source of pain. I know she's super cute but her stompy tantrums over perceived slights are not. If you fall down the hole, it can be exhausting. .  We had a field trip to a local zoo yesterday. Getting out of the house and being outside is delicious. And in the end, she enjoyed herself. I was only slightly traumatized. .  I am enjoying today alone however. That all day aloneness where I get to write and think and connect with myself, my body, and my tribe as I see fit.  I must do my best to regroup and regenerate because she'll be getting off the bus after 4, ready or not. .  And PS, the Soul Selfie Challenge was lovely and restorative and I'm aiming to host an Our Creative Selves Challenge in June. Thank @lauraleerussel as it was her idea. I'm already creating daily so why should I have all thes fun? .  #taleswithfriends #community #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
**********Out of The Shadows******** Love in its truest form can never be broken. Sometimes, It is in those we love and trust the most, yet fail daily to support us in our endeavors the least we discover our strength and independence. All relationships meant to last are built on the foundation of equal footings. What we give of ourselves and our time to those we love unconditionally, we should equally receive in return. Two merely joined together by time and coincidence does not make for a relationship but presents us with the insightful realizations we deserve better friends and better partners. A better life awaits you without them. One grows from their disappointment in those they think to love them and to be their  friends. When it is evident those whose action in words and deeds clearly wain; its time to let them go with fond memories and knowing it was for those you genuinely loved; were one hundred percent all in when they were not. One grows from the choices they make. #outoftheshadows #recipetolife #mymemoirs #mjourney #mylife #mystory #myexperiences #mywisdomlessons #lessonslearnedinlife #myknowing #myaccepting #mytruthfulness #mygrowing #myhappiness #mymovingforward #mylivingthelifeideserve #myinspiration #cocktailsandconversationwithwil #noapologies #noexcuses #noworries
Earth for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  We are all stewards of the earth we occupy. Our school bus driver swerved to avoid crushing this mama turtle hellbent on laying her eggs on the other side of the street. (I discovered today she's a Northern Red-bellied Cooter.) We escorted her to my backyard which is above the river too but there's a retaining wall she can't climb. Hoping she layed her eggs in the woods. And yesterday, in pouring down rain, we saw people helping with a turtle near the highway.  It's the turtle's world, we're just encroaching on it I think. . . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #turtle #redbelliedcooter #chesapeakebay #wetlands #easternshoreofmaryland  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
Mirrored for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  This is Fiona. This is Fiona reading. For real. This morning she got up and her brain was ready for the next place. We are her mirrors. Her parents, her teachers, her friends, and her community. Let's tell her how competent and smart she is first before we gush about her beauty.  She's clever enough to know we ecourage what we value. . . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #fionamariepeach #reading  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
Local for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  Met with my meet-up gals this morning at Nich's for coffee. Just lovely to hang and talk with my friends on a beautiful Saturday morning. And it's right around the corner so I dragged them all back to my house for a little more time catching up with them. Yayyy for local coffee shops @nichscoffeeshop , local roasted coffee @riseupcoffee and in real life friends @karen.phebus @warriormiss @annielivingstone . . . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments #backyardblooms
Essentials for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  This rose bloom and the cloud filled sky. I did not know how much I needed them until I see them again. May moments I am certainly savoring. . . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments #backyardblooms
Out and About for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  When I go down 15 minutes South to Easton, Maryland for a talking doctor appointment, I pass this derelict house. Except she is rising up from her impoverished place because apparently there's historical significance within her. Fascinated by how she rests on i-beams and timberpiles as tall as me awaiting her day to flee her forgotten home and be remembered for Her-Story. . . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments #eastonmaryland
Blossoms for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  These are my favorite weeds. I do not know their name. They're feathery and delicate and I refuse to boot them from my flower beds until they are done blooming because they make me happy. The littlest details make up a life. The tiniest purple blossoms en masse make a carpet. The whispered intentions of a people can make a roar. . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
When we get a chance to hand over our fears, our worries, our shadowy shames to one another, we feel lighter. We are betterfor this exchange. .  Today, my blog post is titled Shadowy Places. My friend Heather @thriveinmidlife helped me by sharing her story of how she got over her overdrinking. And she remarked that others had shared their relief privately with her and that lets her know it's a powerful good thing to share our stories, revealing our shadowy places. I'm doing the same. Pay it forward. .  #everythingissacred #alifeofintention #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #emotionalmaturity #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #community #communication #mushrooms
Shadows for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars .  It is the shadows that make the piece come alive. The shadows that give my sketches the depth of realism. .  So it is with people. Their shadows and their shames make them more human. As humans, we will never be perfect. Yet we keep torturing ourselves with uninteresting goals of perfection. I'm bored by that. . .  #taleswithfriends #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #mywisdomlessons #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
[ Grace ]  Spring #soul_selfie Challenge '18 .  That I live this life is miraculous. I had so many opportunities to veer down the wrong roads. The destructive roads, dangerous roads, ungracious places. .  Yet here I am. I was the gracious hostess of a dinner party in my lovely home tonight.  My children are beautiful inside and out. I am writing and arting and I am healing my soul day by day. i am rising .  Here, by the Grace of everything that is dear to me,  I keep going. .  #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #taleswihfriends #emotionalmaturity #emotionalintelligence  #writersofig #selfdevelopment #florals #onmymantel
