In a State of Sunshine

In A State of Sunshine

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”

-Ben Sweetland

When we begin to see life’s circumstances as opportunities to joyfully grow, deeply mature and positively evolve, we begin to see the light! Living in a state of sunshine is a decision to laugh, to dance, to sing, to enjoy, to appreciate, to give, to love!

My journey has been quite an interesting one, and eventful to say the least, but in welcoming change, challenge and adventure, my heart has assimilated to that constant development. Understanding that each day, task and situation has a golden nugget of wisdom brings me a plethora of colorful joy! Seeking out the blessing at every opportunity will transform a gloomy perspective into a bright horizon of possibility and expectation.

May we begin to seek out the power of beauty in the natural. May we explore the magic in the mundane. May we enjoy the freedom in overcoming challenge. May we excavate bliss in all things life!

And as usual, I’d like to remind you that that the images in this post are in no way shared to showcase “trends” or dictate any ideals of fashion standards. We believe in the freedom of creative expression and personal style, not in consumerist compulsion, which is why I like to share looks that can inspire ways to wear items one may already have. And if by chance some of these handmade and ethically sourced goods capture your heart, you’d know where you can find some of my all-time favorite pieces! =)

ALOHA and HAPPY STATE OF SUNSHINE!
