Just Do it.

Me at the John Lennon Wall in Prague
Seize the day.
Do that one thing that scares you-
Do the one thing you think you can't-
Do the one thing that thousands of other people do better than you do- and don't care that they do, just do it!

We were leaving the house, I had packed my sharpie to add my mark to the John Lennon Wall in Prague... then we got there... My Friend asked, are you ready? my first response was:
"no, you know what, I think I'll just take in the moment and enjoy it... I don't need to add anything".

Then this thought crossed my mind;
when are you ever going to have the chance to add something to a wall like this again, when will you be back? what are you scared of?

So motivate by an opportunity to seize a moment, make a memories, I grabbed my sharpie and added something personal from me, I was missing my hubby, I wanted him to know, and I wanted to world to know... so I hijacked some guy's awesome work (you know done with spray paint and amazing) They had spray painted a white heart, I hijacked that heart and left a message that means something to me- It wasn't about adding something profound that would change the world, it wasn't about peace, or war, or politics... it was juvenile, it was simple, it was mine.

swallowing my fear, not worrying about anyone else,
making my own mark :)
I stepped out and created a moment. A moment I won't ever forget. A moment that I am proud of. My moment.

Sometimes you've got to stop listening to the fears in your head, and just seize the day! Carpe Diem.

Share the love,

PS. Add your MOMENT in the comments- a moment that you stepped out and made a memories, a moment where you overcame fear, a moment you are proud of! Let's CELEBRATE!

leaving a little love <3

  1. My moment happened some time ago, when I woke up to a feeling of peace and love. It was in that moment that I knew Mom heard my prayers and cries and answered 'I am at peace'. 6 or 7 months ago.....after almost 2.5 years of mourning. That's when my urge to do more than just the necessary daily motions set me on the road to getting creative again.

    1. I'm so happy that moment came for you <3 and that you are on your creative path again :)
