a present

I am giving myself a present.  I shall be attending the Jess LC, Make under my life, Business with Intention workshop in New York in June.  What was the last gift or present you gave to yourself?
We all need reminders to "Be present" - to live in the moment and to Dream Bigger!
Do you have a dream that needs a little attention or a gift to share?

Very often these little gifts are just the thing to keep us going.
These posters would be the perfect gift for a graduate, a new Mother or a friend.
You can find them all at Jess LC.

At first I when I saw you were giving yourself a gift I thought PVE was coming to Chicago again. :) I think this is a perfect gift to give yourself. I like the posters too. Happy knitting today! xo

The last gift I gave myself was attending a fashion show like no other. It was held at the local Senior Center. Models were all volunteers, their clothes from the racks of the thrift store. It was a tea with small sandwiches, tarts, scones, etc. and you brought your own tea cup with you. Just $10 it was a benefit for the Senior Center. Such a worthy cause, we felt good attending and supporting the efforts of all those wonderful ladies. We had so much fun and so did they.

I would love a trip to Chicago, as long as I could have time to visit with you!

Yes, make-under is brilliant, right!
Hugs to you and your girls....hope they are feeling better.

Sounds really wonderful! I must tell our local thrift shop all about this! Nothing like a worthy cause and a good cup of tea.

The posters are great! The last gift I gave myself was a birthday present in September but it was big and should last me a while.

"Being Present" to everything, everyone is the most recent thing I have given to myself + the posters are a great reminder tool!

Hi Patricia! Love all you have been up to (some beautiful new illustrations) and excited for you for this workshop - what a nice gift. I love the posters - especially the Be Present and Dream Bigger and just bought them for my office. I like what Bryn said about how well the two go together - that is is important to dream bigger but also to be completely present in your life today. I'm so glad you shared these and hope you have a wonderful experience at the workshop. xo Sherri

We're extending our week in CA to include two nights at Cavallo Point in Sausalito where we'll treat ourselves to a cooking class and a massage - a belated birthday gift to ourselves!
P.S. Love the Be Brave poster on JC's site!

Well just keep going has been my mantra for a long time, and I'm over it! Have a fun day relaxing, we all need to stop moving from time to time.

Having been a goal-oriented person most of my life, I have finally been able to understand what being focused means. I'm getting much better at staying in the present and there are so many blessing. I'm a much better listener and I have learned to keep silence )in process) Have a wonderful week-end. Please post some of your tips. Mary

Having attended a few conference or seminars...I know you will find it fulfilling and energizing. Having the encouragement of like minded folks is always powerful.

So happy for your opportunity and look forward to hearing more about it!
