Tapping into the Steady Rhythm of Life

Rush, rush, rush, rush, rush.  That seems to be the theme these days. Life feels like a giant race most of the time as we all gallop around at full speed on our horses, often seemingly out of control and overwhelmed, about to crash at any moment, but somehow – somehow we manage to stay on.  We manage to keep … Continue Reading

You Can Do Hard Things

I’m sitting on my little green couch, as I do every morning, having my coffee, and feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude. An overwhelming sense of gratitude for the life that I have, for every breath that I take, and for being able to have this experience of growth. This post is part reflection, part practical update on Japan. It’s … Continue Reading

Is it really worth it?

“Is it really worth it?”   This thought has popped into my mind on many occasions and in many circumstances over the years, and especially as of late. I’ve been thinking about this because things aren’t always easy. And when they aren’t easy, I think many of us start to ask – Is it all really worth it? Maybe you’re … Continue Reading

Gratitude, Focus, and Finding the Balance in Life

I’ve literally never seen any artwork quite like my friend’s, Barry Costa. I’ve never encountered an artwork that is more than art –

an artwork that actually, truly changed my life like his (I’m serious here).

(Here’s a cool video to get an idea of what the artwork feels like in real life)

Somehow, he has managed to combine powerful life lessons and emotions, things that we all strive for like having more gratitude, harmony, and balance in our lives, into his graphic artwork. His artwork has been described by some as (and I have to agree!)

“Medicine for the eyes”

It kind of feels like I have an ally with me all the time when his artwork is hanging in my house – and it’s a constant reminder to focus on what I want and my goals, on being grateful instead of on what I don’t have. It’s a constant reminder that I CAN do this.

It’s a constant reminder that we are all loved.

Each artwork has a different energy behind it, which is pretty cool – this way you can pick an artwork that fits your goals or something that you’re trying to embody.

I’ve felt sort of guilty for knowing about his artwork and knowing it had such a positive effect on my life, but not having a way to share it properly.

I’m happy and proud to say that he has now launched his new website where all of his artworks are displayed and you can also grab one for yourself.

I can’t say enough about his artwork and his work in general –

one of the most dedicated, inspirational, and loving people I’ve ever met, he deserves a huge shout out.

A huge shout out because he’s dedicated. A huge shout out because supporting local artists is awesome. A huge shout out because I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who selflessly helps so many around him.

So today I want to share this gift with you, too. Head on over to his website HERE to check out his artwork.

Also, side note, if you’re in need of a website, he does an awfully good job at that, too 🙂

Congrats, Barry, you truly are inspirational.

What to do when you don’t know what to do?!

But for the readers… Life is not always interesting, and you don’t always have it all figured out. If I have figured out one thing for sure, it’s that most of life is actually kind of monotonous. No matter who you … Continue Reading
