Issue 22- June 28, 2019

Hello Friends!

Happy Friday- and, "Welcome back to "The Cre8tive Life!"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and cool things to check out!

I've been in a bit of a "mood" as of late; and, don't really have a lot to "share"...But, I am determined to honor my commitment to myself, and keep my weekly newsletter going. I hope that your week has been AMAZING!

 

MY WEEKLY PICKS:

My weekly (random) compilation of some of my favorite "cre8tive" things that I want to share:

  • FAVORITE WORD: Querencia: (noun) A place where one feels safe, a place from which one's strength of character is drawn. 

 

  • ADVICE:  "We must not allow our circumstances to become the extent of our possibilities" 

 

  • MOOD MUSIC: Totally feeling (and keeping on repeat) an oldie but goodie from the Commodore's...Zoom

 

  • MOVIE OF THE WEEK: To know me, is to know that I am a "Hope-FULL Romantic" (I had to switch it up from the term "hopeless" to invoke more positivity for myself in that area-lol), and that I am a HUGE SUCKER for a good Rom-Com. This week I FINALLY got to watch "Always Be My Maybe" and loved it! 

 

  • THING I'M LEARNING ABOUT: This past week I took a crash course on the process of Design Thinking, and am learning how to implement it into a myriad of things.

  • RANDOM LIFE TIP: One thing I ABHOR are mosquitos!!! These literal suckers will go out of their way to find and bite me even when I am fully clothed (I am still trying to figure out how I got bit through my pants on the subway this week). Anyway...if you suffer from this problem, like I do, you may find these DIY All Natural Mosquito Repellant Recipes helpful.

 

  • SOMETHING I WANT TO TRY: In an effort to continue to "expand" my palate, I recently purchased a Groupon from a vegan place called, Terri. I am excited to check them out and to see if the food tastes as good as it looks, and what people say!

MUSINGS ON LIFE:

I'm still a bit low energy on my "sharing" of words this week...so, this portion of the newsletter is subsequently brief. However, in the spirit of "Self-care Saturday & Sunday" being around the corner, I found this graphic that you will hopefully find useful. 

CRE8TIVE CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK:

This week I challenge you to remember to take care of yourself- and to tap into something that will bring you jo and peace.
