Pinterest :: 5 Favorites

Hello Monday! The start of a new week can be both refreshing and overwhelming. This week is loaded with back-to-school planning, client projects and wrapping up our remodel (which I’m hoping to share more pix of  soon!). So, I’m a bit more overwhelmed than I’d like.

To start the week off on an inspiring note, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pins on Pinterest as of late.

Maya Angelou’s Last Tweet

Maya Angelou's last tweet #quote

Earlier this week my Mom emailed me this quote which was Maya Angelou’s last tweet. The message is profound. It had me reflecting and celebrating the incredible life of the legendary poet, civil rights leader and mentor to so many of us. The world is a better place because of Dr. Angelou’s courage, faith and love. May her legacy and body of work continue to inspire future generations for centuries to come.

Hello 2014 + New Year Goals

hello 2014 --goal setting

It’s here. 2014. The new year fills us with hope, gives us optimism and provides us a fresh start. Now (today) is the perfect time to jot down your goals, hurdles you’d like to overcome and map out those dreams you’ve been afraid to even whisper.

don't quit your day dream. #dreamnew year's resolutions - the ultimate list

I love this “ultimate list” of goals, however it’s too general. Statistics show that by February, you will have broken more than 90 percent of the resolutions you made and that’s a big bummer. So here are some helpful steps to achieve your goals in 2014!

I love this quote too because life is full of surprises, ups & downs and monkey wrenches. When change occurs, review your list of new year goals to make adjustments to stay on course! And aim at staying positive. Negativity is just a downward spiral.

Also, a huge thank you to William Sonoma’s Designer Marketplace for selecting Simplified Bee’s Designer Kitchens board on Pinterest as a top ten to follow! I’m honored to be included!

Happy 2014,
