A masque is fabulous for your skin, or a fabulous finish to a costume, but it’s never meant to be permanent.

Embracing You


Brenè Brown is one of my favorite people. She’s real and accepting of all that she is as a woman, human, and an adult. I saw her Netflix special; it changed my life. She empowered me to embrace more acceptance of who I am. I wanted to share this incredible footage with you. These posts were taken from this site. I couldn’t find that particular video but here are a few others that are just as amazing.

Hope you enjoyed these and forever embrace yourself with more gentle grace.



Nova’s Wise Words Wednesday


ALL that we are, is defined by ALL we are not.

Not our skin color

Not our clothing choice.

Not our religion

Not our education level

Not our hair color

Not our nail length

Not our vehicle, house size, or bank accounts

Not the amount we spend at Christmas

or the amount we tithe in church.

Not where we meet for lunch dates,

or the yoga class every Thursday afternoon

We are not the purse we carry

The Jordens we wear.

How many touchdowns we made in the game

How often we donate to Goodwill

What level of education we achieve

How many trophies we earn

What if any smart phone we carry

If we read the news digitally or at the table, with coffee.


We are NONE of that… because at the end of our time here, we are defined by the quality of our character and kindness of our actions. That’s how we are remembered.

“Bubbles:) There, helped you smile didn’t I?! Does it every time! “


“Just once, in your lifetime, do something unrepayable, for someone else. It’ll change his/her life and yours. ”

Dare To Be


When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

“The more you intentionally search for that which makes your heart smile, the longer such a list grows. “

” The day we stop extending mercy and grace, especially to those who cross us, is the day we stop the evolution of the human race.”

A window will always hold glass; but, it won’t always be clear glass. Sometimes, we need to remove the filter lense to see clearly!

Nova’s Wise Words Wednesdays


When all is said and done, and you’re alone, standing before a reflection, if you can’t verbalize a thought, don’t say it elsewhere. Only you have to live with it’s birth; & words can’t be unspoken.

#20. Words you want to share with others


People love in different ways. You may have a man who brings you flowers every Monday but doesn’t give two hooty-hoots about Valentine’s Day. Just because he doesn’t give you a valentine doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you~  Jada Pinkett Smith

This past Thanksgiving, I was an emotional mess. Lots of memories passed through my mind and equally lots of frustration with the current “facts”. A friend of mine reminded me of this idea Mrs Smith states. Love is in tons of different ways. I shouldn’t have fixated on one holiday and this “boxed in idea” of what it is. As I grow, in love, with my boyfriend, I’m learning to be a better woman at the same time.

There’s so many different acts ovf love. There’s so many different ways to say I love you.

I challenge you to take the “5 Love Languages” test and discover a taste more about yourself. You may learn a bit more about others in your life, as well.

#21. Music that makes me feel adventures 🙂
