We know it is hard not to judge and take sides with all of the chaos and divisiveness swirling around you. However, we encourage you to restrain from judging as it evokes the wrong emotions, destructive emotions that help no one, and in particular the judging hurts you.
We encourage you instead to be Love, Forgiveness and Gratitude. And don’t forget to add to this Joy and Happiness.
We all live in a world that needs an infusion of love, forgiveness, gratitude, joy and happiness. Consider them the “Big Five” for attaining clarity, empathy and a purposeful life.
Just a thought to consider . . .
Be the Peace within the chaos . . .
Be the Joy within the season . . .
Be the Kindness within the divisiveness . . .
Be the Light within the darkness.
It is important to understand that to do this, you must be awake and in the present moment with an open heart and open hands to receive the Peace.

“They” do not define you; so do not relinquish your power which is embedded in love, forgiveness and gratitude.
At the same time do not judge “Them” for what they cannot see or understand, as “They” at this time are either not awake or on a different path.
To the best of your ability within each moment, embrace and live the energy of love, forgiveness and gratitude. Even in those moments when “Others” may not understand why.
In particular in those times when “Others” may not understand why.
When you accept with gratitude the “good” as well as the “challenges” your life will blossom.
You need both for growth and prosperity.
It is easy to see the “good” within the blessings; however, there is also good to be found within the challenges. In fact, seeing the good within the “challenges” is one of the key ingredients for moving you forward into bigness.
This is why we say to trust, not fear life. When you do so you will find goodness and growth in all experiences.
You will be free.
Kindness is a high vibrational, healing energy field. To the best of your ability ingrain kindness as a key ingredient in all that you think, say or do. It will brighten your world as well as the world of others, seen or unseen.
The following is a Guest Post by Becka . . .
“I opened her arms so the flowers could Bloom.”
My eyes are open to the maps of my own potential. I can change the map as I go, if I choose. You stop for gas because you need it to keep going.

Becka is our new High School intern and she comes to help us every Wednesday, at our Studio here in Grass Valley.
What a delight! Not only is she creative and she is extremely competent, wise and has been a big help to us in so many ways.
Becka has time to create while here and this is one of her newest paintings. When Marylou asked what she had in mind she said “I opened her arms so the flowers could Bloom.”
So there you have it. Another girl to inspire us all…
“We’re All In This Together”
Created by Marylou Falstreau
Everyone is searching for happiness while living in a world that is full of pain, fear and worry. Become an awakened observer. Be aware and accept the reality of the full spectrum of human emotions; however, to the best of your ability, live in balance between the extreme highs and extreme lows.
For it is within this balance that a purposeful life is lived. And when you are living a purposeful life the beauty and abundance of the world opens up and you are truly alive.
Don’t let anyone steal your dream.
Step one: Have a specific, powerful dream.
Step two: Believe in yourself strongly enough that you will achieve this specific dream.
Step Three: Repeat Step One and Two daily.
The key to your success is persistence, commitment and discipline.
The mind will keep you trapped with labels that keep you small, which keeps you feeling unworthy. The heart will free you.
The mind teaches shame. The heart teaches love.
The mind traps you with fear and regret. The heart releases you with forgiveness.
The mind calculates, compares and judges. The heart teaches you of the beauty you are.
Once again we remind you to listen to your heart . . . follow your heart. For this is where you were designed to reside.
