I love to talk. Those that know me, know that well! I have been talking about Bring Pretty Back… BUT, that’s it. TALKING. NOT doing. Not action. This is my passion. My dream. But you wouldn’t know it because I have been all talk… no action. The past few weeks I have been focusing on getting my act together. Unsure, really HOW to move forward…but, I knew it was time to really get serious. I usually think and talk it to death. ( thank you to my friends that have listened to me ) But, this time I just KNEW it was time. I didn’t doubt or stress. I had FAITH. I have been decorating the new little house, listening to pretty music. ( more on the pretty music soon!) When I get an idea for Bring Pretty Back, I jot it down with FAITH … and keep on with my day. I don’t talk about it or overthink it. Just jot it and roll on. Then these things happened… In the last week I have got an opportunity to go to California, asked to be on a monthly call that women all over the world listen to from a woman I absolutely admire and adore, an incredible offer from my publisher and out of the blue someone emailed me offering me a domain name I have wanted for YEARS.( This person had no idea I wanted the domain name. ) This happened when I finally had FAITH. I did nothing else, just BELIEVED in myself. I have tears in my eyes in my eyes as I write this to YOU. I am overwhelmed with excitement and ideas. It’s time to stop just talking and begin DOING. Starting today. Have FAITH in YOURSELF. The things you need to fulfill YOUR dream are waiting for you. BELIEVE!
This time of year we all seem to be frantic to do do do do do do… and then do a little more. Today take a moment to look. REALLY look at the little things around you. Notice the PRETTY LITTLE things. We still have to add a few more strings of lights on the tree,( I usually choose a five foot tall tree, this year it’s ten feet tall… more lights needed!) last night I put this little pitcher on the tree and just enjoyed how cute it looked all by itself hanging there with the lights reflecting off of it, enjoying a cup of tea. Something so simple, brought me joy.

I was visiting a friend at her hair salon yesterday when two elderly ladies walked in the door. The eldest needed a hair cut and was barely making it in the door with her walker.
