AE Heart & Soul |

Today I want to introduce you to a new Friday series called Heart & Soul.

The simple goal is to share something that's lifted me up - something that's inspired me, made me think, opened me up or encouraged me to live more fully awake and alive.

Here's a little something that lifted me up this week:

Katie introduced me to this video on Monday (she found it via her Mom) and it was such a great start to the week.

Favorite line? You were made to be awesome.

Watching the video led me to checking out the people who produced the video: Soul Pancake. I love them. What a cool concept and wonderful way to spread good.

Which lead me to watching this video:

Bring on the good!

Hoping these lift you off to a great start to your weekend.

    got sent the kid president message from a co-worker a couple of weeks ago and LOVED it. My kids thought it was great too. The ball pit friendships were wonderful-thanks for sharing that too
