27

fp

Last week I celebrated my 27th birthday.  While I love the celebratory, loving spirit of this time of year, I always tend to dwell a little too much on what I haven’t accomplished yet rather than what’s to come.  It’s not a good habit, and I’m trying to break it.  In that spirit, here are 27 things that I am so very grateful for accomplishing during the past year.

  1. Finally moving to Los Angeles
  2. Keeping up with my yoga practice
  3. Paying for my first apartment all on my own
  4. Getting my credit card debt in order
  5. Learning to love my body (still an ongoing battle but I’m learning!)
  6. Treating myself to fresh flowers
  7. Consciously making new friends
  8. Bettering my relationship with my parents
  9. Eating less junk food and feeding my body what it really needs
  10. Transitioning into a new job successfully
  11. Setting more goals & taking them seriously
  12. Learning to appreciate the small joys & beauties in life
  13. Taking more photographs
  14. Making and sticking to a realistic budget 
  15. Staying positive even in the toughest times
  16. Watching less television
  17. Taking the time to send handwritten notes to loved ones
  18. Learning to handle my emotions and not cry as much (that’s a big one!)
  19. Writing more and in different styles
  20. Learning that it really is better to have loved & lost than never loved at all
  21. Working to keep up with distant friends and knowing that it does take effort
  22. Drinking less and enjoying life more
  23. Putting myself out there
  24. Working to make my dreams come true with inspired action
  25. Waking up earlier and making the most of my days 
  26. Reading more
  27. Keeping up with this blog :)

Alexander Korzer – Robinson

2

I’m always intrigued by artists who find original ways of expressing themselves.  While I often feel I have so much to express, I’m constantly stumped as to how to do it; my mind simply goes toward writing or drawing and I often times feel unfulfilled.  It’s always inspiring to see fresh forms of work, and Alexander Korzer-Robinson has completely captivated my imagination.  A few years ago, I found his work scary – now, maybe because I’m older (?) I find it whimsical.  Using old books, he creates narrative collages as a way of representing the inner self for the viewer to dive into.  As if the use of books wasn’t nostalgic enough, Alexander only uses images found within the book creating a specific world that each viewer will remember differently.  While we reflect within the book, we are the book, finding our own personal sentiment with what is only on the inside.

A New Day

We don’t always have time to cook a huge, delicious breakfast and hit up a yoga class before our day starts.  I believe your entire day can very much go in the direction of however it begins so I try to follow these steps to ensure it’s the best!

1. Wake up, do not press snooze.

2. Do not press snooze more than once.

3. Eat a healthy, filling breakfast.  I’m partial to yogurt & blueberries or oatmeal.

4. Coffee is heavenly, but try to stick to tea after one cup.

5. Plan an outfit that makes you feel like a boss.

6. Pack essentials so you’re prepared for the day.  (Headphones, a change of shoes, sunnies, a healthy snack, etc.)

7. Put a smile on your face and a good attitude in your mind.

8. Work it like that hustler that you are.
