HINT: The cracks are where the light gets in :) Give today the chance to be the most beautiful day of your life.
#AWEgustChallenge DAY 8: The fullness of life resides on the edge of your comfort zone. Explore your edges. We are rarely taught about edges: how magical, how challenging, how necessary they are. They give us vision, motivation, and breath. Today, take time to appreciate the power and growth that reside in your edges…the only way to experience awe and wonder in our daily lives is to move out of our comfort zones.
#AWEgustChallenge DAY 12: “Over-planning kills magic.” -Danielle LaPorte Leave some space for the unimaginable to flow into your experience today. Stop trying to plan your life and let life live through you...live as the river flows, carried by the surprise of it’s own unfolding! Remember, SURRENDER is not about letting go of action, it's about letting go of outcome. For the next 24 hours, as you move through your day, open your heart to uncertain outcomes…
#AWEgustChallenge DAY 11: "The big question is whether you are going to be able to say YES to your adventure.” ~Joseph Campbell There's a morning inside all of us, waiting to burst open into light.

Remember, YESES come from the heart and are unique for each of us. What does your personal stance of a big hearty YES looks like?
#AWEgustChallenge Day 10: "Hello, sun in my face. Hello, you who make the morning and spread it over the fields." -Mary Oliver Too often we take for granted the beauty of things that are most common in our days. As J. Wirthlin explains, “The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us.” Today, let’s practice gratitude for your most consistent companion through your days, the SUN.
#AWEgustChallenge DAY 7: Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself. Getting lost is not a waste of time. Put down your google maps and allow yourself to get wonderfully lost today. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself along the way… #projecthappiness

#AWEgustChallenge DAY 5: The universe is saying, "Let me flow through you unrestricted, and you will see the greatest magic you have ever seen." ✨ Always expect that something wonderful is about to happen.

Being in this receptive mode is a practice that starts by asking the universe to reveal it’s magic, and then actively noticing all the moments of synchronicity that pepper our lives... #projecthappiness

Slow down. Notice. Observe. Be aware. Allow presence and awe to come back into your life. It is the curious and unhurried eye that brings color back to life.
#AWEgustChallenge DAY 1: “A person’s life is nothing more than to rediscover through the detours of art or love, or passionate work, those one or two images in the presence of which their heart first opened.” -Albert Camus Do you know the deliciously expansive feeling of your heart opening? This is the feeling of awe, and can be accessed through any number of creative mediums, such as photography, dance, writing, hiking, music, yoga, poetry, painting, cooking…always opportunity to be awed
