magic in the making


i came across this quote on the lovely curly girl blog recently and had to share it. genius, no? 
we've been immersed in 2011 19 days now. how is it feeling? experiencing magic? are you happy with its unfolding? are you taking time to make art? remember, each day is a fresh canvas.

magic to me is . . . seeing a social work client smile, shopping vintage, practicing yoga, getting a massage, eating stinky cheese while sipping good wine, chocolate with flakes of lavender, nag champa incense, bright red lipstick, fragrance from star gazer lilies as they open, le chat noir's obsession with cat nip, receiving a handwritten "thank you" note, hosting a sparkly event, sitting on a damask meditation cushion and finding my breath, connecting with like-minded spirits, feeling part of a movement, looking into the eyes of beloved pink pigs (who have such beautiful long pink lashes), looking through art journal books. 

et toi? where are you finding magic this year? 
i believe 2011 calls for more and more magic.
bisous.

Magic is getting to see a baby whale a few hours old learn how the breathe and play in the ocean...
Magic is seeing your dad laugh so hard, it shows the gap in his molars that he tries to hide...
Magic is realizing how beautiful and wonderful life truly is...
Magic is all around you... It's so wonderful when you notice it!

To me magic is being able to see my girls grow up and find me in them in different aspects...sitting down and contemplate the sunset, amazing to my eyes...being able to crochet premie hats and donate them..look at my self in the mirror and see how i have been wonderfully made...how i can relate to others no matter the distance or country im located...see how infinito the ocean and the sky is (wonderful)

I got one for you ... how would YOU define success? Spiritually, Family, Career-wise, Physical Health, Financial Health, Personal Development, Social, and Community - in all these areas of life?

I noticed I was having some challenges feeling invested in 2011. Which is quite funny since I've been preaching 2011 design/creation to my clients all December long. So for me, the magic came just the other day when I acknowledged my inner (bratty) child and let her come out and let her be heard (and boy howdy did she have a lot of foot-stomping and pouting to get out). Since then, I've been back to being more ME and not only getting stuff done, but also taking time to acknowledge the beautiful things like full moons and coyotes!
