{no ordinary moments} + the weekly {Smile-Up}

. . . . . . . . . . 
"There are no ordinary moments." ~Way of the Peaceful Warrior

{no ordinary moments} - a Friday ritual. Photos capturing moments from the week. Simple, special, extraordinary moments.
This started as the "365 Grateful Project" (A year long photographic project which involves taking a photo a day of something you're grateful for) 
and has evolved to my own liking -  using Daily Gratitude to see the world as anything but ordinary. 

Served with the weekly {Smile-Up} - gratitude practices to love and appreciate your life. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' and 'smile up' in the comments for all to find and see.

Lessons of the week: 
 In a society that teaches us to feel badly about ourselves, it is important to remind yourself that you are Loved and Awesome! Every Physical problem in the body is the result of an emotional problem manifested into the body. Women are constantly apologizing for their very existence--time to reenforce love for ourselves and fellow women. Practice Daily Gratitude--repeatedly throughout the day! Digging into our pasts is a bumpy journey but necessary to move forwards. Stop using forms of escapism in life; face your problems instead of running or burying them--because they will come back to haunt you. Life is about Enjoyment and Happiness--if you enjoy it, then enjoy the hell out of it! ;)

Wishing you all the most magical and amazing week and day ahead!  Remember to Create the life of your dreams and to Create an awesome kick-ass day!
