  • At breakfast this morning, my friend Juliana asked what my word is for 24. After thinking about it for just a little while, it came to me – discovery. 🌎
β €
As I go into this year, I want to discover more about myself, the world and God. I want to always be in a process of discovering, of learning and of dreaming. β €
β €
Discovering hope. Patience. Kindness. Thoughtfulness. Adventure. Beauty. Friendship. β €
β €
A lot goes past us when we don't stop to marvel and discover. We miss so much. There are infinite stories, connections and gifts around us that it's kind of frightening to know we often don't connect with them. β €
β €
Let's open a door to someplace new. There are so many doors around us, unlocked but unseen. Now we say: let's go on through. ✨
β €
Cheers to a year of discovering the new and the old and discovering what's been there all along. β €
β €
Thanks for all the birthday wishes and I'm excited for this year! ☺️

  • Dying of cuteness! One of my goals in life is to have a pet duck or at least know someone close who does. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•PC: @divaduck01 #ducksaspets

  • We all want something. And we all want something right now. Success. Followers. Likes. Friends. Money. Fame. Change.β €
β €
But to be successful creatives, we have to delay this feeling of gratification. It takes hard work to achieve our goals, and if we only focus on the temporary satisfaction, we will not see the larger picture. 🌎 I'm working on putting my phone down, developing patience and knowing that what I create at work or on the side will be purposeful in the end. β €
