    Will do my best. Have a great weekend Ali!
    It is ironic that you should mention this because I've been reading "the not so big life" by Sarah Susanka. http://www.amazon.com/Not-So-Big-Life-Matters/dp/0812976002/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1209156895&sr=1-1
    Someone is telling me something :-)

    Such a great reminder Ali - thank you! It is so easy to get swept up in the busy-ness of life, the to-do lists and where we are headed. We often forget to appreciate that which surrounds us in the moment, and it is those moments that shape the story of our lives.
    I'm attending a class with Vicki Boutin today, and I plan to really focus on being fully present in the experience. Learning and growing. Your reminder is a perfect way to start my day.

    Yes, that is my theme as well. I just discovered the New Earth book and online on demand series through Oprah's website. Quite fascinating. Definitely what I am needing.
    Thank you as always for your timing and the weekend creative jolt!
    excuse me while I go and experience some "in the now" moments....

    Thank you for the perfect weekend creative this week. I needed to clean my house...yada, yada, yada... But instead I took advantage of our PERFECT weather today and sat on my deck for two hours and read my favorite childhood novel, 'Charlotte's Web'. I was completely in the moment...THANK YOU.

    Hi Ali, you don't know me but I am constantly inspired by your work & your family. BE that is good & will try & remember that one, in this crazy thing called LIFE. Just a quick question - do you use a bind it machine if so, which one do you use??? Any recommendations.

    Hi,there was an article in CK that talked about mantras so I came up with one "Live in the moment not the past or the future". I find it a struggle some times but I keep on trying. Love your work!

    so the message I needed to see, if it was a print, it would be on my word wall as a reminder.

    Ali, as always you are SUCH an inspiration to me with this blog post. I really love your way of looking at life and your philosophies and I thank you for sharing them with all of us! I need to make one of these for myself and hang it in every room of my house.

    I'm not sure whether you know or not, but your memo had been shown in a design blog:
