say whaaaaaaaaaaaaat wednesday??

happy wednesday friends!!

last night i was reminded of something as my oldest
daughter shared with me about a choice one of her 
friends made....

i was reminded of the choices we all have
day in and day out...constantly.

the choice we have to tell someone we love them
or to let that moment pass by.

the choice to let go of something that hurt us
or to harbor it.

the choice to focus on the one negative thing
that was said to us 
or the countless positives.

the choice to reach out and help those in need
or to turn a blind eye.

we make endless choices in any given day.

choices of what we choose to focus on,
choices of what to wear,
choices of how we spend our free time,
choices of whom we spend our time with,
choices of the words that come out of our mouth,
etc... etc... etc...

choices that come easily and
 choices that require much prayer
 and reflection and thought...


what is a tough choice you have made lately?

i dont know about you...but i am working
really hard on only making good ones!!
(easier said than done sometimes)



  1. Oooh ... Hard choices lately? I chose to be strong and let go. Usually I choose to lash out instead. I'm pretty proud if myself tbh. :D

    Lovely post Kolleen! Thank you for making me think and motivating me to continue to live consciously. :)

  2. A hard choice for me over the last few days was the decision to cut back on certain aspects of my wedding reception, which will be held on July 31. My husband and I were married on May 24, 2010, but because I'd recently lost my job at the time, we chose to forego the big wedding and reception until the following year, allowing us to save money.

    Unfortunately, in the time since, I haven't been able to find another full-time job, and have had to take a series of part-time or lower-wage positions. As a result, we still don't have the money to do some of the things we wanted. It's been rather disappointing, but apparently it just wasn't in the cards to have the fairytale wedding.

  3. I love choices! Not so good choices lead to better choices and great choices become more wonderful choices. The choices I'm making lately are choosing more happiness, more laughter, more fun and silliness, and more abundance in life...which leads to more wonderful choices =-)

    I recently made a tough choice to distance myself from a woman who spoke venom about everything. It hurt so bad because this person had been in my life so long. But when I finally made the choice and I listened to my heart, that choice became a sense of peace and a reminder that I deserve to surround myself with people who love me and support me, not try to tear me down. Tough, yes. But I grew from it and feel better for it!

    love and hugs to you, dahling!!

  4. Hi Love! I just love your words and your tough choice lately has been to detach myself from a group of people in my life that have values too different from my own. These people have racism and hatred in them, and when I'm around it I become so uncomfortable. My choice that I have made is to do what is right for me and my own speak my truth and to separate myself from this situation. I know I can't change them, but I can stay on the path with all the light and show my own kids that its okay to stand up for what you believe in. But its been hard and emotional, but I know it's the right thing. I love you sweet beauty! xo

  5. Years ago I had the choice to kiss the girl of my dreams, but, I didn't want to break the friendship, should things go south. By not putting my heart on the line I made a choice, and a few months later was invited to her wedding, to a guy I had never even heard of, who I talked to briefly. Sadly, and yet joyfully, they were good for each other, both very much in love. It caught me off guard when he informed me she had talked a lot about me. Though it hurt, I went to their wedding, wished them the best, and moved on. We still keep in touch, and she is pregnant with triplets, but while my feelings are not as strong now, she is one of the greatest people in my life.

  6. this sounds kind of silly, but I made a tough choice last week when I decided to sign up for this big Stella and Dot conference in San Fransico in July. I really can't afford it and the business is starting off slow, so I'm not feeling really motivated to spend more money on it. BUT.... they say this conference is a game changer, that I will come away ready to take on the world and I know it will be a hoot. So....if I'm going to stay committed and not let my confidence sway, I must GO FOR IT!!
    love you darling!

  7. I chose to come see YOU and wish you a Happy Mother's Day! I hope life is treating you well and you are making time for your art~ Fun, thought provoking post...xXx
