Be OK

I'm glad it's Friday, but the week has been long and I feel a little "blah" today. My mind is on creative overload and I need some decompression time. Allowing your brain to take a break is a good thing...right? These works by Keetra Dean Dixon seemed appropriate for my mood today. Little lift-me-ups to remind me that yes, everything will be ok.

I'll be back next week with more posts from the Inspired Design conference and other goodies. I hope for a refreshing weekend...nothing a little love and good food can't fix. It's going to be FREEZING, so I will probably become a pseudo shut-in. Here's to a rejuvenating and warm weekend...

Jane Flanagan said...

I'm readying myself for a shut-in too and feel exactly the same way. A good book, some mindless TV and steaming hot coffee should cure what ails me.

You need some self pampering. Take a lovely warm bath and snuggle up. A-M xx

These are great feel good images. I recently came across a tumblr page that has a lot of these type photos on it and now I can't find it. If and when I do I will send it to you. Have a great weekend!

Allowing your brain to take a break is an ESSENTIAL thing! I intend to do so this weekend so have completely rationalised it... Indulging oneself this way is only a good thing I reckon. Hope you do too! :)

I want to get that one for my fridge!

Reminds me of the notes my mom used to write in my lunch bag as a kid. Unexpected and heartwarming. I think I'm going to write more pick-me-up notes to the people I love...good post!

Oh, gosh..those bed linens with "everything will be ok" is what I need to see each morning. I am inspired and I think I will put that message next to me, on my night table. I love this post and I'll toast to that...a warm and rejuvenating weekend!
