The paradox of fully experiencing the present once we’re willing to let go of intended outcomes. Maybe this is what it feels like to be alive and aware of every breath.

Here’s to a cozy weekend—came home from grabbing laundry last night and found Jackson snuggled in my bedding. Could he be any cuter?

There’s something beautiful and transformative that happens when we say yes to this dance. ✨✨✨

“From far away you see the pattern, the connections, and the thing as a whole...Up close it dissolves into texture and incoherence and immersion, like a face going out of focus before a kiss.”
.
Distance brings perspective, wisdom, insight. It allows us to see the whole thing—the gifts as well as the challenges. When my marriage ended in January, it was too close to see anything except my pain.
.
Here, as the year draws to a close, the distance is palpable. I’ve crossed over into a new life—more open, more joyous, more free. I look back and see the space I’ve traversed, and I’m grateful for it as I move forward, excited about what the future holds.

When your friend is the same size as you, you get to borrow from her amazing wardrobe for fancy parties! Thank you, @kelseythunt. 🙏🏻

It’s not a throwback day, but I’m thinking about meeting this lovely human, @teaelleu, who spoke at #AIGAdesignconf a few weeks ago. Tea is doing incredible work as Creative Director of Google’s Creative Lab in Sydney, and if you don’t follow her, you definitely should.
.
Hey, Tea, waving from the other side of the world (but hoping to make it to Sydney soon)! 👋🏻

Goodnight from this sleepy fella. 😴

Let’s work together—I’m looking for a few individuals who are interested in being coached as I’m working toward hours for graduating my program. We’ll start where you are and talk about where you want to be. And then I’ll help you take action.
.
There will be a fee, but it’ll be reduced. You can be located anywhere! For more info, shoot me an email at tessmaker at gmail dot com

Last weekend this surprise from @michaelcina arrived in the mail to adorn my walls. Thank you, Michael! This piece reminds me of my life this year—movement, color, beauty, and growth. What a gift! 🙌🏻

Ate lunch outside today, and then looked up and saw this. The juxtaposition between old and new struck me.
.
It also reminded me that sometimes we need to stop and look up from our routines, from our lives, from the things that keep us narrowly focused on particular outcomes. Because there’s so much possibility and beauty waiting to be seen. It’s all around us every day.
