Ready. Set. Go!

There’s a refreshing sense of ready-set-go in the air, and it feels like the perfect time to promise to learn more, love more, live more, and lean more this year.

So here’s to recalibrating, and taking bigger, bolder, more meaningful steps.

To harnessing more energy, honing it more gently, and to creating something special into existence.

To exploring the unknown, trusting in the journey, and becoming a Possibilitarian!

To stepping, no, SPRINGING off broken old roads- and having a thousand new sturdy ones to choose from.

To having the courage to show your dreams to someone else…

…and to witnessing hearts sprout wings.

There’s a good time a’comin, y’all.

I can feel it in the air…can you?

*The sweethearts in the photos above are Kev’s parents, Jim and Katie, and that cute little card was a gift drawn by him, for her, a couple of years ago.

    What a beautiful, heartwarming post! The love and adoration is so evident in their beautiful faces. And I just love the idea of being a ‘Possibilitarian’. Thanks once again for such an uplifting post Layla! May your 2012 be full of wonderful things!

    Really, really sweet! The pictures remindes me of a couple I saw walking down the street: both very old, upper part of the body bent forward, holding a walking cane in the one hand and the hand of their partner in the other hand – so cute! Thats how love should be. A Loveley new year

    You always inspire me Layla (and Kevin). I’ve been having my blog for a few years now and haven’t really done anything with it. I recently retired from Real Estate Sales and now I would like to develop my blog. I am really hoping to go to Blissdom this year! Hope to see you there.

    Hi! I love your site. I just wanted to let you know that the link to your second ebook isn’t working. I wanted to check it out, but was denied. :( Loved the precious photoshoot!
