the beginning.



i put up my first bit of encouragement today... a little yellow post-it on a big yellow wall.  it reads, "you already have everything you need."


in reading through all the submissions from the free encouragement project, this one seemed very important to me.  a simple reminder to keep sight of what's really important in life... in a time when, at least for me, everything seems to get more and more complicated every day... a time when people are struggling to make ends meet and feeling like they don't have enough.  

i often get bogged down with all the endless choices and tiny details of every day life, and forget to enjoy and appreciate what i have... a loving, wonderful family... a lovely home... and the freedom to pursue my dreams.  just putting this note up and seeing its message, i felt a sense of calm and relief.

sometimes it is easy to forget... but what you have is enough.  your life is abundant.  be thankful :)

xoxo,
lesley

Absolutely, yes, this is vital to remember. Sometimes it feels as if life is all about lack--always pushing toward the next thing...when really, this moment is all we need.

Thank you for starting this beautiful project.

Super cute! I do always love walking past a bit of positive graffiti... this is easier to do and more legal :)

Can't wait to see more!
