Sometimes we can become so commercialized that we lose the true essence of who we are.

Celestial Seasonings always had very sweet illustrations on their tea boxes. They also had poems on the back and sides of the box.

Truthfully, I like the tea, but I really bought their tea for the poems and illustrations. The boxes were quaint and humble and they made me want to purchase them.

Sometimes we get to the point of where we think we need to change our "packaging".
We think we need to be more like someone other than us.. When really our appeal are those quirky and quaint things about us.

Most people don't want commercialization they want realness.

They want authenticity... I know I do.

Be real.

Be who you really are. Flaws and all.

Like yourself for you and others will too.

Thank you for your honesty and openness.
A hard thing to do in a critical world. Not all understand where we are coming from.

Blessings, and continued health as we process through life's journey.

We are given the tools. It's up to us to use them. Which is why I firmly believe that God helps those who help themselves.

And you surely do!


About Me

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
