hold it in your heart....

i've been playing in my studio
{while listening to really loud music and occasionally dancing}
and
honestly
loving it
~
i used to spend hours in that sweet little room
and
then my passion for art and paint dwindled
while my passion for photography soared
~
now i'm combining the two and working on some new projects and ideas
and
today with the help of my hubby
i even worked on some dreams
as he took my big and wild and not even close to perfected thoughts
and
juggled them brilliantly for me
~
he's so great that way
anyhow
today i just wanted to remind you
that what you love
might look slightly or even hugely different from what someone else loves
but
no worries
~
remember
it's all in the eye of the beholder
and
more importantly
it's all in that beholder's heart
and
if it's in your heart
well
then
now we're talking

  26. Exactly right. We see things in someone or something and accept it and love it for us, for the place we are in and the journey to get where we are now.
