After too many days filled with data, should do’s, and deadlines I realised that my friend had been right. “It’s creativity that nurtures the soul.” ~ An original image quote by Amanda Ricks 2017
The evening settled on us like a welcome mediator. Dimming the stark reality, hushing tones, and muffling our harsh thoughts. I heard a sigh and wondered if it was another unspoken apology or merely a step closer to the door.
If only somehow, someway, a bridge of trust had allowed my love to quell your self-imposed embitterment.” ~ Amanda Ricks
“Those hot summer nights spent on the porch, with my skirts hiked up, a glass of perspiring lemonade beside me, and a drip of sweat sliding torturously down my temple.”

I think I originally wrote this in 2015 but recently found it in my files. I immediately thought of the valiant struggle that a blogger friend of mine is currently experiencing. With that thought in mind, blessings to everyone out there who struggles late at night in the dark.
Action affects our thoughts, Our thoughts affect our feelings, Our feelings affect our mood. So open that front door and keep putting one foot in front of the other until you feel better. ~ ©2015 Amanda Ricks
Life is about living. It’s in the doing, not the finishing, succeeding, or winning.
This is what mindfulness really is, for some reason, it has become so over-complicated and overwritten. Just be in the moment. “Just Be In The Moment” ©2016 Amanda Ricks

An original quote from myself and my friend MichelleMarie. We, (okay, mostly Michelle!) came up with it one night, last winter during one of our long chats about life. It seemed so fitting.
Once you realize that life is a journey you can relax because you know that sooner or later there’s always a rest stop. ~Original quote by Amanda Ricks
