I have this jar of marbles. It lives in a dish, on my dresser, in my bedroom. I start with an empty jar in the middle of the saucer and the marbles surround it. Oh, probably about 30 so marbles. Every time I do something special, grow, do the right thing even when it's hard, take the extra step, learn something, take that leap of faith, trust in my self and act bravely - I drop a marble in the jar.
Marble, marble... marble....... marble...
I love that jar.
When my jar gets filled with marbles, I write the date on a small piece of paper. I chart my growth. I then ceremoniously empty the jar, spread out the marbles and start over.The marble jar was a gift from back in 1991.
This is a physical act I do to acknowledge my own development.
I did good today. I stepped my game up. I came from my big place. I was kind and mentored someone who treated me like Cinderella last week. I got over someone getting under my skin, choose to be balanced and happy and to look at things from another perspective. I came from love. It worked. I rocked.I love that I live and learn, and realize it during the experience.
Life is good.
Ou, I just got a chill.

Oh you must go here: (http://elsita.typepad.com/elsita/about-my-book.html) Her book is amazing! I purchased one for my sister. I think I need one as well.
last post from @adamfoodstyle & @mattarmendariz's soon to be former home. you've seen the room a million times as i've shared a photo @mattarmendariz shot for @foodandwinemagazine, but this is a wider shot with a piece of matt's artwork shown so it tells the story more fully- classic blue and white with a hit of citrus (which i am ALWAYS guilty of 😉). i used my favorite @duralee ikat again, mixed with @perennialsfabrics on the bench cushions & pillows. not shown, is the matching perennials dog bed on the floor for the boy's crew of tiny chihuahua's. it's little details like that that make a room special. 🐶shades/cushions by @designersresource. #maison21 #christianmay #interior #interiordesign #interiors #interiordesigner #interiorinspo #color #ikat #home #homedecor
