Take What You Need

Sep 20, 2018 | Life in Progress

Confession: I woke up in CA this morning at 3:45 AM and took a long ride via Uber to the Oakland airport only to be told that I was AT THE WRONG AIRPORT. Not only was I at the wrong airport, they had zero flights available to get me home to Oregon. Raise your hand if you’ve done that before?

Friends, it was a moment of moments. All of my overwhelm, my sadness, all of it, just poured out. Big tears. Right there at the airport kiosk.

I surrendered. What else can you do?

I scrambled, rounded up another Uber and miraculously made it to the San Jose airport in time to catch my flight home.

Needless to say, I need REST. How about you? If you saw this sign today, what tab would you pull off?

Ps: feel free to download this and put up around your town ;). Click here.

Sending much love,

    Hello! I am visiting a dear friend in California and she has this hanging in her bathroom. I absolutely fell in love with it! Is this still available for purchase anywhere? It would be just perfect for my daughter. Thank you!

    I saw this piece in my oncologist’s office. I would love to purchase some for gifts (and, of course, one for me), but I can’t find them. Can you help me?

      Hello Diane, Nichole here! The product version is no longer in production, which inspired Kelly Rae to create the downloadable PDF! Feel free to download and print as many times as you like!

    Whenever I get overloaded with too many things going wrong, tears come into my eyes…as a release.

    Tears are a trigger for me to breathe and look around my present environment.

    Next, I literally look for two things…BEAUTY and HELP!

    The beauty of the world changes everything for me and help from others gets me closer to a solution.

    No matter what the situation, beauty or help are usually available…if even in the smallest way.

    I personally am working on FORGIVENESS. Thanks for having that one available! Glad you made a flight home. Whew! My thinking is always WHY did this happen? WHAT was the LESSON I was supposed to learn from it? <3

    Oh honey, I’m so sorry! What a blessing that you made it to the right airport on time and were able to get home. Now you have a funny (it’ll be funny one day) story and a life lesson.
