THANK YOU

I really can’t find the words to say how thankful I am to all of you for your support for Pete  and I in the last week or so. While we came up a little short in the end, the fact that we ended up in third place is nothing short of amazing. We could not have gotten that far without all of you. SO THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! And a huge thanks to Pete too. You’re awesome 🙂

As I posted once or twice throughout the contest, We all have a story. Every person that entered had their reason for wanting to meet Dave. One’s reasons for wanting to meet Dave no more important than the other. I’m proud of the way Pete and I went about things… We kept it classy and played it cool, minus a little begging from all of you to JUST CLICK THE LINK 😉

You all know how much I adore Dave, the band and their music (and if you didn’t NOW YOU DO!). It’s a crazy love affair that began some 17 years ago when I first heard the music… So to say that I (we 🙂 ) would have been thrilled to meet Dave through this contest would be an understatement. As Pete said, I do as well. It’s not just a band… It’s way more than that for me (us 🙂 ) and many others. The number of shows I’ve been to is irrelevant; having been to under 20 makes me no less of a “fan” than someone who has been to 100+. For me it’s my constant happy place. NO matter the day or mood, this music has been my constant. I love the message I get from their songs. I adore the people I’ve met from all over the world (some unknowingly right in my back yard) who share in this love. People that I’ve come to know and love. People that I consider to be my family.

Something I’ve learned from all of this… from the band… from the music… from this contest… from all of the friends I’ve made through this music… If there’s something you want to do… DO IT. “Take these chances…”

Do what makes you happy. Be with the people you love. If you’re not happy with some aspect of your life, do something about it. LIVE YOUR LIFE. If anyone would have told me a year ago I’d have had met Stefan, would consider Boyd a friend and be going to the Gorge in a few months I would’ve looked at them like they were crazy. BUT because of this music, I’ve had the most incredible year of my life. And I’m totally excited to see where else I end up. One thing I know for certain, I’ll continue sharing the LoVE all along the way.

Let your light shine

Live life as bright as you can.

Smile.

Be a ray of sunshine.

You’re only as bright as you allow yourself to be. Why not be the brightest star in the sky? Why not be the brightest ray of sun?

The Good Life

It’s all about the choices you make.

What you do or don’t do.

How you react.

Who you let in.

When you decide.

Why you do or don’t.

YOU have the ability to make yours a good life.

When you smile at a stranger & hold the door instead of brushing by. When you speak words of encouragement instead of bringing someone down. When you decide to look at the sunny side of all things even in the most trying of times.

You are in control.

Think about how you want to be remembered. Think about the lasting impression you’d like to leave on the world. Think about the impact you can make on a person’s life.

The journey we walk each & every day we’re in existence is defined by what we do & how we do it. The person we are & the kind of life we lead are one in the same. You ARE defined by how you treat people, how you react, what you say, think or feel. Why not take on each day in a positive way? What other way is there to really lead a good life?

By doing, saying, thinking, feeling you have the POWER to affect the lives of those around you. Why choose anything other than making a positive impact?

I have a good life. I live a good life. I LoVE my job, I’m blessed with an incredible family, and supported by the most amazing friends & special people a person could ask for. I wake up each morning & go to sleep each night with a most grateful heart.

Because of that I am able to wake up each morning with a smile on my face & spread LoVE the best way I know how. Offering a little ray of sunshine to all that cross my path (some of which I’ve not yet met).

We all deserve to LIVE a good life. Decide to make it that. Decide to LoVE wholly. Decide to LoVE completely. Decide to BE that positive person.

Take control of your life. Make decisions you can be proud of. Don’t waste a minute of this precious life. See the good in the world. Make a change. It’s all within your reach. It’s in your control. YOU have to recognize & appreciate. YOU have to make it yours.

Have a grateful heart. Keep it filled with LoVE always.

Be all that you can

It’s hard to believe it’s May 1st already. I’m sitting outside enjoying an early morning cup of coffee, listening to the birds chirping sweetly, thinking about the day ahead.

20130501-061137.jpg

Lots to do. Lots more that I HAVE to do. Even more still that I WANT to do.

All this thinking this early in the morning has the potential to become overwhelming. The thing is though, you can’t get caught up in all of that. It only becomes overwhelming if you let it. But why do that to yourself?

Yes, it’s important to have goals & meet deadlines & accomplish the “to-dos”, “have to-dos” & “want to-dos” BUT if you allow yourself to focus only on all that’s to be done are you leaving time in your day to just live?

Are you taking time to enjoy your day & all the beauty that lies ahead in the unexpected? Or are you so wrapped up in the deadlines that you find yourself saying where’d the day go?

Do me a favor. Just stop. For a minute stop & just be. Enjoy that cup of coffee

Take a minute to appreciate what you do have. Take a second to appreciate those around you. Just be.

Be all that you can be.

Make today amazing.

20130501-061504.jpg

Make today count

Take today & make it yours. Live a life that makes YOU happy. Don’t 2nd guess just live & love.

It’s so easy, with all that’s been going on in the world, to forget to live. You have to live in the moment and not take a second for granted.

Make something of your day. Tell those you love, you do. Tell those you forgive, you do. Tell those you miss, you do.

The day is yours. Take it. Run with it. Make it something. Tell a story. Live it loud. Live it right.

Do right by yourself.

If you don’t like something, fix it.

If you want to do something, do it.

Don’t complain about things you have control over.

Take a chance.

Make a change.

LIVE YOUR LIFE.

LoVE your life.
