Dear men and women who have served, are serving, or will serve in our Armed Forces,
I sincerely thank you for what you’ve given in service to your country – time, strength, sweat, tears, blood, lives. I am not, nor will I ever be, of a temperament that is right for that sort of service, and because of that, it took me a long time to understand its value. But over time I’ve learned, and I am deeply appreciative that you’ve done this for me, and everyone else like me who could not do what you have done.
May you always be protected, respected, and taken care of by the country you have served.

My Second Favorite Word, Honesty

Why I Write

I want to write words that matter…words that release the flood of love that wells up in my chest so that you will know that you are loved.  That you are held in a place of sweetness. I want you to know that there are people who see the wonder that you hold.

Baby, it’s (not-really) Cold Outside!  I am totally living a snowy day vicariously through this blog post!

How To Start a Revolution From The Inside Out

Begin. Begin with yourself. Begin an intention. With love. And kindness. Compassion focused inward. Take yourself off of the pedestal and out of the cupboard under the stairs. You are neither a saint or a sinner. You are you. Know that is a wonderful miracle.

How to Reform A Bad Day

I realize that we talk a lot about how to take care of ourselves on bad days– the times we least want to care about our own well-being– around here, but I’ve yet to offer an actual case study of “A Bad Day Gone Good.” That’s probably because I honestly haven’t always taken my own advice and taken the best care of myself in such moments. This case study, I hope, will remedy the lack thus far of a personal story of one such bad day, reformed.

Gratitude

Lessons come from everywhere. People will float in and out of your life. Sometimes the biggest lessons come from the biggest disruptions/disappointments. However, when the smoke clears and everything is right with the world again, if you are paying attention, you might just realize that the moment you found so difficult holds a huge life badge beyond anything Foursquare is going to give you. (According to Foursquare, I’m at bars way too much).

✂ Kristin Noelle -And you find yourself in a strong place

What if it’s possible to be surprised by softness when you very least expect it? To be going along in the midst of your gut-clenching challenges – the ones you admit to yourself and the ones so hard and protracted you almost cannot – and find yourself turning a bend into kindness. Warmth. Generosity. Understanding. Love.

What if all such things could be far more close than you think? – Kristin Noelle
