Leap of faith

"It's your, take it,
Leap like a lunatic
Over the chasm below
erupting as you go
Your true self awaits you
NOW you will know
-Jane Evershed

I had a wonderful time chatting it up with some great girlfriends this past weekend and in one of my conversations we started to talk about some artwork that she would like to order...anyways we were trying to brainstorm as to what subject matter to put in her youngest son's room. She told me what had happened days before... Her son and her were in the paint store trying to decide what paint color to paint his room. He was very decisive rather quickly declaring "that's the color I want!" She tried persuading him against the color several times, as it was a very strong yellow. She told him he would get headaches if his room was that color, that it would be just too bright. He refused to change his mind and  eventually after needing to be somewhere else and running out of time to discuss it further, she looked down at the swatch, looked at the name of the color and bought it. The color was called "Leap of faith!"

What a great little story. Why not paint your kitchen orange(I did!) throw some whimsical art throughout the house even if it doesn't match...mix patterns...have fun, surround yourself with things you love, take chances.

Until next time, May you always walk in Sunshine.  May you never want for more. May Irish Angels rest their wings right beside your door.
