Awesome is. To many times it occurs to me that somewhere along the lines - people just didn't know they were awesome enough to take that leap, take that job, take that chance, take that bus, be that gal, go for more, do that thing, demand the best, trust their guts, make it happen, be the man, do their best... it's crazy. Maybe they forgot. Maybe no one told them. Maybe they just never knew. It's one of my goals, as a mama, to make sure the three wee ladies of mine know they are awesome. That they are loved. That from time to time they are going to fail and they are going to be scooped up and hugged regardless. My daughters were the inspirations for the YOU-ARE-AWESOME posters.
Awesome is. The stars aligned last night - as we sipped wine on our porch watching the kids of the neighbourhood race and laugh. Our bellies were full and our hearts were floating. There is much goodness in this world. Enough to share. Enough to note. Enough to be overwhelmingly grateful for. So much goodness.
Awesome is. SCRIPTschool. I am loving getting this class ready. What to learn the tricks to brush script in all of its lovliness? It's going to be challenging and fun and interesting and informative. Looking for something new + inspiring? Are you registered? Go for it.
Awesome is. The internet. I've never met Brené Brown in person, but through the power of the internet I feel like I've made friends with an amazing woman. Not for all the mega-things she's done... but because she's all the things she says. AUTHENTICITY is a treasure. She's the real deal. If you are here via Brene Brown - welcome.
Awesome is. Twitter. I was a hard sell on this fact, but over the weekend it has helped me communicate with a friend in the eye of hurricane Irene, with a friend in Alaska, with a friend about to have a baby in Australia. What an amazing thing technology is. Follow me here. (@kalbarteski)
Today: I have lots to do. So much work. Happy work. September is upon us. I love the Fall. We have a house guest arriving this week and I am excited to share and learn and be present here. Elise is coming! I feel strangely like my little sister is visiting - eventhough that is silly because I don't have any sisters and we have never met. But if I had a younger sister - I would want it to be her. ART WILL HAPPEN HERE. Register for SCRIPTschool. YOU-ARE-AWESOME.
Leave me a note about what YOUR AWESOME IS and I will get Dan to pick a couple of random winners of the very exclusive SCRIPTED mini print set. This set is so pretty (and only available until the end of September). What is AWESOME TO YOU? Liberate your inner awesome.
