Spanish Flowers

Step outside. Take a walk. Breathe in fresh air. Get moving. Stare at a face instead of a screen. Ears perk up at the sound of laughter. Face crinkling laughter. Warm to the touch skin. Eyes make contact. Sun beating on the back of your neck. Take nothing out of context. No punctuation necessary.

Step outside the lines. Let go. Find a surface that reflects the truth. Challenge the boundaries. Question the comfy, cushy, down filled pillow. Find yourself in something new. Floating upstream. Go so far that you can't find your way back, and then go back anyways.

Step outside of yourself. Your thoughts. Your well-constructed status updates. Who you think you are. Who you want others to see. Beyond to-do lists & day planners. Me. Me. Me. The incessant wanting and needing. Find a way to give back. Count your blessings: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

Step outside the opinions. Forget what they say. Ignore the peanut gallery. People who think they know what's best for you. People who talk too much & listen too little. The judgments that stick to your clothes. Peel the letters off. Stick your fingers in your ears. Be free.

Lately, I've been slacking on the blogging. My head's in a bit of a fog. I have lots to say, don't know where to start. Hope your eyeballs will like it. I love hearing from you, introduce yourself and tell me more: xo
