MOST RECENT

I knew this was the message for you this morning, so I asked if I could take a pic and share the story with you.  He obliged, because around here, we welcome out of the box ideas and unusual solves.  In our home, we celebrate the things that don't look "normal". 🤔
Sometimes that fourth wheel doesn't exist.  So you have a couple of choices. ✌️ You can choose to throw your hands up in surrender. 😩

Or, you can make another way. 🛶

If you're apprehensive today, I want you to know there are kids who are looking for the lonely ones.  There are kids who are paying attention.  There are teachers who truly care.  And most of all, whatever happens, will grow your baby into a stronger, wiser, more loving and compassionate person, because of your guidance and love. .

You did enough this summer. .

They know they are loved. .

They know how to love. .

It's going to be a great year. .

Trust that. ❤️ .

If you've received a note in your inbox from HeartStories over the last year, you've read the writing of this beauty.  Meet Megan Moore, the generous and kind soul behind the wisdom you receive in your weekly love notes from HeartStories.  I met her last year when we were in a pinch for volunteers to support our GNO event.  Our mutual friend Angela, introduced us, and after one phone call, I knew instantly she was a perfect fit for our team. ❤️ Yesterday was her birthday and I had every intention of sharing this post to share the celebration of her beautiful life and example with you, but things didn't play out that way. (It only took a certain child of mine about one minute at my computer, to completely lock me out, requiring an hour long call to Apple, a hard drive reset and a recovery mode maneuver that wiped all my passwords and a million other things.) Clearly today was the right day to celebrate @megankmoore 🎉

I can’t wait for you to enjoy a night of laughter, fun and self-defense with me! I would love for you to register with my promo code “ESPERANCE” to save $10 and get your ticket for just $29!

We could all use a dose of that child-like faith and determination these days.  As we grow older, our self-confidence and determination that we WILL succeed begins to wane.  Fear creeps in and we so easily dismiss opportunities to try something new as "impossible". At least I know I do.  There's no way I am going to try to learn to do a back flip right now.  Just watching him crash, time and time again is plenty enough evidence for me. ❤️ It's such an obvious and easy "no". 👎🏼 But it makes me wonder what else I'm writing off as a "no" before I even attempt to figure it out. 🤔

If you're trying to do anything of value, you will make mistakes.
.
.

Don't hold back from trying something you're unsure of, just to avoid the pain. Of course, if it doesn't work, you might feel hurt and defeated. But it's precisely because of the pain that you'll remember the lesson and learn a new, better way. Falling down is an accident. Staying down is your choice.
.
.

Welcome mistakes.
.
.

They are the holy grail of learning.

Connection between people is filled with spontaneity.  It's full of texture, nuance, context, twists, and turns. It's not about controlling the circumstances in your life.  It's certainly not about mastering the relationships in your life, although it's a good thing to learn to show up differently.  It's also not about getting a better handle on how to do it all.  Because the waves of life will continue to come.  As soon as one wave seems to die down, another is building behind it.  Some waves might have more of a lull between them, but they will continue to roll in.  There are certainly calmer seasons.  There are also hurricane seasons.
That is simply the cadence of life and connection.
Either way, the mindset is the same.
Instead of trying to control everything around you, the real power lies in finding your center, amid the waves. 🌊

Sharing stories is the way we remember life. Hearing each other’s stories is the heart of what I believe inspires the courage in each of us to do the things we feel called to do. ❤️ It doesn’t matter if you feel called to paint, workout, capture photographs, speak, lead a company, teach, parent or anything in between, sharing your story will inspire someone else! ❤️ Sharing your story honestly will help them realize they are not alone and possibly spark the courage they need to take that first step. . . or to keep going in the face of adversity. That’s why I share mine. ❤️ It’s also why I’m thrilled to see my story mixed among so many diverse and beautiful people doing fabulous things in Dallas and beyond. ❤️ Thank you @voyagedallas for boldly sharing my story and the stories of people from all walks of life. You never know which one will spark a fire that will light up more beauty and Love in this world. 💡 🔥 💐 ❤️🎉 I’m humbled and grateful to get to share this space in the “Thought Provokers” series as part of the Plano collection.

We're forever changed because of small, seemingly insignificant choices we made that night. ❤️ It's a woman's natural inclination to gather people together. When we do, the connections we make bring courage, power, and clarity to us, both collectively and individually. It's those moments of human to human connection, that are the most meaningful moments in life. I'm reminded, as we head into another fun and connection-filled GNO gathering tonight, that this night will never happen again. ❤️ It will be different from all others. ❤️ For me, for you, for all of us.

Yes, of course, we want to be present for every moment we can.  We want to guide them and protect them.  We want to nurture them and cuddle them.  And around here, we feel this pressure to schedule their every waking moment during summer.  But they are fine.  They do not need us to be present for each second of their summer.  In fact, summer is so good for their brains.  It's good for them to figure out how to make their own fun and learn to navigate the world without a "teacher" looking over their shoulder constantly. ❤️ So how about let's give ourselves a little grace? ❤️ Momming is hard in the summer. ❤️ If you’re feeling guilty in any way about momming this summer, read: “Mom of the year” over on the blog 👆🏼today.

I am in awe of her. 😳

She is a powerhouse of professionalism and knowledge.  She's insanely skilled at her craft.  She's kind, generous and collaborative.  She's a mama, raising four busy and smart kids, so she total gets this crazy, messy life. 🤪

Because she has a teenage daughter, she knows as well as anyone, that these moments of parenting are fleeting while life is flying by. ⏰

I'm coming out from the underground to say: "We made it here, alive!" 🏡
We have finally moved from our storage unit and vagrant lifestyle, into our forever home (as evidenced by the lovely moving-day picture above). *cue the angels singing all the songs of praise* 😇 🎶
We all need a good comeback now and then. 👊🏼 You may need one right now too.  It's okay to admit it.  It's okay to say it out loud.  Sure, it's humbling.  It means acknowledging things aren't what you expected.  It means you're not the superhuman you wish you were, but recognizing that, frees you to remember where to find what you've lost. 😱

What kind of comeback do you need right now? 🤔

Do you need a comeback of joy? Energy?  Motivation? Faith? Trust? Hope?  Connection? ❤️ It can, and will come back. 🙌🏼 Read “It’s time for a comeback” on my blog 👆🏼today.
