Going Too Fast...

Live your life like the wind.
Speed up when necessary,
And know when to slow down.
Slow down when life pushes so hard and fast,
You cannot consume anymore air.
Slow down when you can't see
Where you're going
Or where you're coming from.
Take time to stop and realize
What you have right in front of you
When you cannot find what you're looking for.
When you cannot find what you want in someone else,
Look inside of yourself.
Don't sweat the small things,
And make the best of the big things.
Cherish the experiences you've had,
And use the lessons you've learned.
Our lives are rubber bands,
Bending and stretching to fit
Even the most awkward situations.
You can adapt to anything,
Regardless of its size or shape.
You just have to realize and use
What you have in your own hands.

I've had to slow down and breathe, slowly and deeply.  I've had to rest for a while.  But I miss this space of my own; this place of peace.  I have also missed visiting my favorite places.  Being here now makes me realize why I embrace this outlet of sharing.  Thank you for sharing it with me.  Thanks for caring.  Thanks for your support, kind words and encouragement.  

Some new creations that have been in the works for a while...more to come!

Your sparkle still shines through... I have been stretched thin as well and so I put words to one of my Gladee Whirligig witches like the one that is Somerset Studio magazine this month and I am digging down deep. Hope you find the light there, too. Blessings friend and congrats on the gorgeous creations. You have no rival, for you are truly gifted with vision.
