Forward momentum, intention and perspective

These peaceful images are from the artist behind the habit of being. I found her searching through favorites on flickr this morning. I look at them and feel soothed. They say surround yourself with beauty, simple and sweet, and you will be rewarded. They say that natural light streaming into your living space can be the most beautiful assessory. That the littlest stone or shell picked up on your walk can be the highlight of the day. I realize that the dust of Christmas has barely had time to settle, but my mind is already turning towards the new year. I'm thinking about what this past year has held for me, particularly the concepts of forward momentum, intention and perspective. I'm thinking about what this new year will hold as I take these tools and act upon them. So, with these thoughts and the tranquil images floating through my mind, I'll be curious to see what gets scribbled out onto my journal tonight!

So peaceful and just what is needed after a hectic holiday season. They are inspiring me to get my house in order and then just lie around drinking tea.

These photos are so nice to just look at. I would love prints of these in my bedroom to calm me down before I sleep. All of these blog posts I'm reading about the new year remind me that it is here! I better prepare.

hi, there! I am so, so humbled that you would include my photographs on your beautiful blog, but - would you mind asking my permission beforehand next time? they're awfully personal to me, and I just like to keep track of where they're headed online. don't feel that you have to delete this post, though.

thank you kindly!

Hi, I found you via Belle Maison. This is a lovely post! I'm looking for more nice blogs to visit (even if it takes too much of my time already...). I'll definitely revisit yours!
Happy New Year!
Best wishes,

These are definitely thoughts to keep in mind as a very hectic month comes to an end.

I recall finding her blog right before she took a hiatus in posting. I'm glad to see she's still very active on flickr.

So lovely and utterly simple, causes one to reflect what is beautiful is truly lies in nature - going forth with a nice momentum.
