I have been busy busy these days working on decorating and styling for Original Conference. These are some pictures from last year, that I don’t think I ever shared? I still love the giant heart painting. But…what I’m really excited to show you is pictures from this year (and I’ll be sure to do so in the next week or two). We did some really fun things!
Original is one of my fave conferences and I look forward to it every year. 1,500 girls gathered in one place to have fun, learn, grow and give.
Say, do you spend enough time focusing on inner beauty and things that make you shine from the inside out? You know, feeding your soul. I certainly don’t. I used to but lately I’m feeling very unshiny and all kinds of dull, actually. Feeding my soul has always been an important part of my life. It’s kind of what keeps me going. It gives me balance when every thing seems out of whack, stability when all around me is uncertain, joy in the midst of painful times, gratitude even when I have needs to be met and mostly it gives me purpose. I don’t like going about my day to day without a purpose. And lately, most days feel like I am wandering about aimlessly or maybe I should say running and scrambling about aimlessly. I need a bit of a refuel and a centering. Do you ever feel this way? And tell me what kinds of things do you do to feed your soul and focus on inner beauty?
It always helps me to get away for a bit, even just an afternoon and to spend some quiet time thinking, writing and reflecting. Sometimes just hearing nothing speaks louder than words. And what I find is, that what I need to hear the most is sometimes only heard when I’m still or when I’ve closed out all of the daily noise.
The next couple of days, while I’m at the conference, I’m planning on feasting my soul. And am hoping to brighten up a bit … from the inside out.
