“Be” Light

Happy New Year, friends…I hope you’re all off to a good start.  And I hope that 2015 will bring you much peace and joy…love and light.

Several months ago, after enjoying a restoring yoga session, my instructor ended the class by reciting a few words of wisdom from Caroline Joy Adams.  These words really touched me…and I have been thinking about the meaning ever since.

I wanted to share these beautiful words with you…and perhaps you too will find them meaningful in some way.

“Your life is a sacred journey.  And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way.”

How true this all is!  A few years ago I started, and I would like to continue, living more mindfully…into the New Year and beyond.

“You are on the path exactly where you are meant to be right now.  And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.”

This too feels very true.  Reading these words of encouragement, I feel a sense of peace and acceptance.  I feel that all is good.

Living in a state of heightened awareness has made my personal life richer.  However, it has not been so good for my professional life, which is why I haven’t made it here to my blog as much as I had hoped over the past several months.  My life at home has kept me from my life online.

For now, I think I need to continue to be focused on my life at home…to support my family, especially with my darling Brook getting ready to leave for college in just over a year (I want to cherish every moment I have left with her at home.)  There’s also a lot of travel planned this year (California, New Mexico, Colorado, New York, Hong Kong and Thailand once again.)  During this time, I will not be blogging but this blog won’t be going anywhere and my website will also still be up and may be updated here and there…I’m not sure.

Feel free to search through this archive of content as well as my website and I hope you’ll find plenty of art project ideas and inspiration. I don’t know exactly how long I’ll be away or whether I will even return to blogging. But I’ll be happy to know that all of my effort (five and a half years and 312 posts! …hard to imagine!) might continue to be helpful even as I stop actively working on it.


The time that I have spent here has been very meaningful to me.  You have made a positive difference in my life (through your kind words and support, through your open sharing of your wisdom).  Please know that your generous and caring good intentions have been deeply appreciated. I value the friendships I’ve made here and I imagine these connections will continue regardless of what happens to this blog.

May you “be” in the moment…may you “be” in the light.  And may this light fill you with love. Thank you for sharing your beautiful light with me here.

    Noooooooooooooo …. this is not the way I wanted to start the new year! I’m kidding, of course I love you with all my heart and will miss you but everyone has their “path” and you have to be true to what is calling to you. If anything, I certainly get that. But I will stalk you, just know! If too many days go by, expect me in your inbox missy!

    Dear Becky, you are in the place you are meant to be. I will miss you that’s for certain but am so happy for you to have the precious time to spend with Brook before she gets her wings, and to have many travel adventures-especially the opportunity to see the family members that live so far away.
    You will be in my thoughts and heart.

    “Feed your heart and soul so that you can fill your heart and soul, so that you can give your heart and soul.” Linda K

    I needed those words… I’m going to print them out and look at them as I try to grow and heal in this coming year. Thank you for sharing, not just your art but showing little bits of your soul as well. I wish you all the best and that you continue to experience ‘more’

    Becky, this was a beautiful post. Thank you for sharing these lovely words. I joined your blog in 2014, not very long ago, but I have enjoyed learning about your art, your creativity and all the wonderful thoughts and stories you’ve shared along the way. Thank you for allowing me to ask questions, and always taking the time to answer them. I wish you all the best as you enjoy your daughter this year last she is at home. Enjoy all your travels. And maybe, we will someday hear from you again. Blessings. Melanie
