  1. I love this sign. Someday I want to print it and put it up in my house.

    The part that sticks out to me most is, “Stop over analyzing, life is simple.” I often cannot turn off my brain. Sometimes, my thoughts about what would make a good blog post or tweet or instagram helps me appreciate life and notice what is happening around me. Other times, it keeps me from jumping in and experiencing instead of just thinking.

    Life is short.

    The older I get, the more I get this. I am in a phase where I am wanting to live life large and loud … because life is short (and I hate it that things change, I don’t want to miss out on this because of fear)

  3. “If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love.”

    This is basically the thesis of what I’ve told my closest girl friends. As I get older, I’m learning to walk in my own skin, to be proud of who I am and what I love. Not to hide in putting up a front of what others want of me. The summary: I want whomever falls in love with me to fall in love with ME. The girl that dances randomly, that loves the inner city, that loves Downtown Fresno… and to that end I’ve begun running toward the things I love. I’ve become more involved in our neighborhood association, Downtown revitalization events and workshops… so I feel like I am starting to do the things I love.

    And finally, as I do them, I’m becoming less and less worried about my status regarding relationships and just fully living my life.

    [Glory to God.]

    All emotions are beautiful…

    What a load of crap!! This dude never met me ;-)

  5. Hi Alece,

    Start doing things you love…I would add the caveat (assuming it isn’t immoral, unethical etc. it is the analytical part of me…but I am learning to trust that as I seek God, I can trust those good desires He put in me…like for writing…

    Praying you are well….

    P.S. Read the comment about emotions and I have to agree BUT I think we do have to deal with all of them, and bring them to God, because even the less “beautiful” ones like anger and fear are God’s gift to tell us something…to alert us to deeper issues that need to be addressed…and God redeems what is not so beautiful, at first blush, and transforms it into a thing of beauty if we will allow Him…my experience

    Am I only allowed to choose one?!? hmmm…..

    Well then, today I’m going to go with…”Getting lost will help you find yourself”, because that has been my experience time and time again. I have been pretty lost in my time–the past 6 months being yet another example of that. However, those are exactly the times that the Lord uses to get to the root issues of why I ended up there in the first place. Those are the times that He reveals HIMSELF to me the most, and in doing so always gives me a more realistic perspective on who I am in comparison. Humbling…very, very humbling, but I’m so incredibly grateful for His grace in that.

    “If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.”

    Umm… because that’s “my” excuse.. and I need to stop watching TV. Eeep! Convicted!

  8. “Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.”

    Alece, I believe this to be so true. I don’t ever regret the paths my life has gone, even as they were not the paths I expected. The people on those paths have enriched my life in ways indescribable and unimaginable. Thank you for sharing your life with all of us.

  9. “Ask the next person you meet what their passion is….”

    That is a challenge for me here today….

    So my friend…what is your passion right now?

  10. I have this framed on my wall. It inspires me daily. (ok, I don’t look at it daily, so I’d say weekly) and those who visit and read it. So much of it is meaningful to me. I think the part about “asking the next person you see what their passion is…” I think that’s so important. You find out so much about someone by their passion (or lack thereof). And just by asking that question, you get them to evaluate their lives and encourage them to live passionately.

    Some opportunities will come when you seize them. I guess that’s why it says take a chance, because it’s not always that you’ll be given one, but you must take one sometimes.
