If you're always on the look out for Love, Connection, Opportunity, New Friends, Beauty...You'll find it. 
If you're always on the look out for reasons to be 'mopy', failure, scammers, excuses to start things....Hmmmm, I wonder what you'll find.

Someone I sent this to today said they had really needed to hear this. Nothing on our path is in vain. "God causes all things to work together for good..."
If your artistic path or life direction has shifted there is NO mistake in this. It's ALL part of a greater plan for you. Everything you've been through and done up until now will be weaved throughout the spectacular creation called your life! xo

Who's on YOUR awesome team in life?! The ones who conspire with you over your dreams & goals, encourage you, support you, and love you through joy AND pain.
