I can do this!

Focus on the things you’re proud to be a part of and then believe in yourself! “I am strong. I have skills. I can do this.” (Morning sketch inspired today by my Maddie and her lifelong love for soccer. Today is her first HS game of the season.)

Be Early

You know that bird in your group, the one who is always early and prepared? She honors you and respects the work. You can count on her. I have noticed. I give this advice to my girls…Be early. This is today’s “Morning Sketch”.

You are Light and Love…

Message to my girls…everywhere. “Don’t ever doubt your ability, or the difference you are making, or the way you light up the world.” -MR I painted this image of a butterfly to remind us all that we are magnificent. We are beings of light and love. Keep on keeping on! xox lisA
