Everything is perfect.
You are doing enough.
You are exactly where you need to be.

I have to say, I found this quote about 15 minutes into my very first tentative journey into the "blogosphere," and I inexplicably welled up and am now sitting, damp-kleenexed and teary, in front of my computer.

I don't know you, don't know anything about you (not yet, haven't read much yet) but these three little lines are like the greatest possible blessing for a gotta-do-it-all-and-then-some kind of girl like me. I am really touched, way past touched into flattened, by reading this. I'm going to make a BIG printout of these lines and hang it in my studio, so i can see them all the time. Thank you!

A very beautiful shot. And thank you for the encouragement! You are a sweetie.

My very favouite kind of shot... a lovely close up, blown out around the edges.

I sighed loudly when I saw the full picture.

Lovely stranger, you are a beautiful part of my life.

Absolutely Fabulous Andrea...exactly what I needed. Thank you.

if that's okay with you of course. :)

thank you.

Thanks Andrea!

I had a profound moment of deja vu the other day. That sensation always comforts me...because I choose to believe that that familiar feeling is awarded to me as a reminder of just that: I'm right where I need to be.

Posted by: Marilyn at May 12, 2005 09:40 PM

just what i needed to hear today ~ thank you.

Posted by: stef at May 12, 2005 09:29 PM

Are we doing enough? there's always more to be done, at least that's the way it feels sometimes. Thanks for the thought.

Posted by: Kristen at May 12, 2005 07:22 PM

Are you sure about that because it's hard to stay motivated!

Sigh. Oh my. That was _exactly_ what I needed. I have been really stressed out, but I had a gush of peace when this came up on my screen.

Posted by: Lisa at May 12, 2005 05:08 PM

exactly! the hot pink is perfect, too.

Posted by: mati at May 12, 2005 03:42 PM

wonderful photo.
thanks for the words too. I put them on my computer brower so I can be reminded that I am where I need to be. I can relax into the moment and trust it is as it should be.

it's amazing how something 'simple' like that is all we need to hear yet we dont know that until we actually hear [or read] it.

thank you.

I guess I can't say it any more eloquently than the others...THANK YOU

Posted by: wn at May 12, 2005 01:08 PM

Thank You!

Posted by: joy madison at May 12, 2005 01:02 PM

wow, i needed to hear that too.

Posted by: kristen at May 12, 2005 12:24 PM

Thanks. I needed to hear that. ;)

Posted by: Lu at May 12, 2005 12:22 PM

I really love your floral shots. Where do you find all these beautiful flowers? Do you go to a botanical conservatory or something?

Posted by: Carolyn at May 12, 2005 11:43 AM

I don't believe you. ;)

Posted by: Penelope at May 12, 2005 11:38 AM

So simply put...so true for us all.

Thanks for the lovely reminder today :)

Posted by: Kelley at May 12, 2005 11:29 AM

Thanks for the reminder. I needed to hear that. I just finished a very emotional journaling session about what I failure I feel like as a parent. I needed the encouragement!

Posted by: Michelle at May 12, 2005 11:28 AM

Andrea,

Stunningly beautyful! My favourite colour!!
And your lines are just what I needed to hear today. I take it as the sign to go ahead with my plans as I want to and keep going into that direction. Just today I made the final decision and chased away the last doubts and fears I had. Your lines are confirming that I am on the right path. They are the sign I needed and had asked the universe for.
Amazing Andrea, awesome, beautiful, stunning - and just perfect.

xoxo

very cool. And just what I needed to hear today! Thanks:)

as a consultant (events & life coaching) who is currently very worried about the future,
i think what a beautiful statement,
i will try to embrace it but it is rather scary.

Posted by: crystal at May 12, 2005 10:33 AM

I agree with Kate's comment below - this should be everyone's mantra. And it seguays so nicely into your comments about praying and letting go...

Posted by: Jennifer at May 12, 2005 10:12 AM

Those are just the words I needed to read right now. Thank you!

Posted by: Rosie at May 12, 2005 09:51 AM

A,

You rock girl! I love this picture. So beautiful.

It's amazing how easy this is to forget. It's so nice to be reminded of this when I'm not thinking it at all.

Jenn

Posted by: jenn at May 12, 2005 09:25 AM

right on, sister!!

xox!

Posted by: sasha at May 12, 2005 08:51 AM

I've very recently quit a secure, well-paying job in order to start my own graphic design business. It's both exciting and scary at the same time. Sometimes I'm very optimistic and think that this really has a chance of working. Other times, like today, I'm a nervous wreck and think I've made a terrible mistake. I know you don't know me (although I feel like I know you - I read your site daily) but these few words have lifted my spirits on a day that my spirits were in dire need of lifting. For that, I thank you.

Posted by: Kimberly at May 12, 2005 08:48 AM

What a gorgeous photo!!! And what beautiful assurance your simple and short entry provides. Hugs, A -

Posted by: Carrie at May 12, 2005 08:46 AM

Thank you. This is becoming my mantra.
