This year

"To lose balance for love, is part of living a balanced life." - elizabeth Glibert


This year....

I will get into a studio and further my business to the level I always wanted it to be

I was well on my way last year and got a little distracted....

I will paint, I have been saying this for years...and this year, I will use it as an outlet

I will be the best mom I can be and focus on those two little souls who look to me for everything

I will not fear trust and connection

I will not belittle what once was, but I cannot mourn the loss of an ideal that will never be

I will not be disregarded, disrespected or devalued

I will not look to people that do not matter to validate me



I do not believe selfishness is the way to happiness, but I will take the opportunity to better myself.

I am working to shift my focus, in hopes something beautiful will come of it

xoxo

Brooke, I would just facebook you but I deleted it.
He is we is coming to play June 24 in slc.. figured you might want to know, and you might be the only other person who enjoys music more than I do.

Good for you, Brooke! A few of your "wills" are on my list as well (painting, not allowing myself to be made to feel inferior, and not looking to people who don't really care about me for approval). I never have bought into resolutions, per se, but always having goals is good for the soul. Love this post.

I just love the way you write. From the soul and so deeply real. I love it when you write stuff like this. It's so similar to the way that I think that sometimes I feel like you're describing me and it's highly therapeutic. Love ya!

Beautifully said. Such a wonderful perspective Brooke. I wish you the very best in all that you do. You deserve good things and whatever has happened in the past has made you the amazing woman, artist, mother, and person that you are. Thank you for sharing this. Pretty inspiring lady...

You are an amazing writer. I wish that I could write from the soul like you do. Maybe I should work on that.
You are amazing. Keep it up.
