Something very simple but very cool happened to me today and I would love to share. The best place for me to take time out, real time out is at the beach. It is the perfect escape from my blackberry, computer and emails. I even go as far as to only bring magazines that are not related to decor. At times its hard to shut "it" off but if I really focus I achieve that slice of bliss where all you hear is the soft breeze and waves crashing.
As I was sitting on the beach, the sand so smooth beckoned to be written in so of course I thought of CreateGirl (so much for turning it off!). After drawing the perfect set of words I sit back in my chair when 2 young girls, maybe about 6 and 9 stop in front of the words and just stare. I could hear them whispering something and I asked if they knew what it meant. They both looked at me with the sweetest expression, eager to learn. I explained it was 2 words which to me, meant the ability to be whatever you wanted to. To Create the Girl you have imagined, that anything is possible once you believe in yourself. Of course I explain this with lots of hand gestures...arms out wide to make my point. I say if they want to be a doctor, baseball player, actress you can create the life you want!! They were so excited to learn what they perceived to be a secret and went on their way. Soon they were dragging their mom's over to check out what the "cool writing in the sand" meant. It was just the loveliest conversation and my hope is that in some way they will remember what I already know.....anything is possible with hard work, passion and courage. CreateGirl and Jace Interiors are both proof of this!! If only these young girls with the world before them knew how they just reminded me of what I already knew....life is ahead of me and anything is possible!
If you are reading, thanks for a lovely conversation, you made my day that much more blissful!
To all my fabulous readers, what type of CreateGirl are you? Please share!
