Rare Jewel

Be the type of person that people enjoy being around. Be that person that lights up the room and inspire others to be better. People should be happy to see you walk in a room and sad to see you leave. Make an impact on every soul that you encounter. Say words that will change […]


Enjoy the Moment!

Take time to relax, breathe, reflect, think positive thoughts and enjoy the moment. Life is too precious and sometimes too short to worry about things or situations that you have no control of. What you do have control of is how you think, feel and perceive. Inhale peace and exhale fear. Relax. Enjoy life. I […]


Small Moments

Take time to enjoy simple and small moments of your life. Settling in, lighting a scented candle and enjoying your favorite book, movie, music or other activity can enhance the atmosphere and your mood. Eat better, sleep better and live better.  Patrice Tankard #dailyvacations #relaxation #selfcare#selflove #scented  #candles #lavender#chamomile #health #fitness#possibilities #inspiration#notesofinspiration #serenity #photooftheday #photography#photoshoot #life #love  #beauty#lifestyle #blogger #lifestyleblogger#model   #musician #infused#essentialoils

Be an Angel

Being this tall makes it difficult to get close-up, full-bodied shots for photos. Oh the woes of height. But being 6 feet and 3 inches tall can be a blessing though. Every time I go to the grocery store, I look for elderly people who ride around in carts, electric wheel chairs or hover- rounds. […]

Never Look Back

Never Look Back

“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5 Trust God when making decisions and stand firm on the fact that his plan for you is excellent! Chart your course and never look back!

Teachers are Powerful and Influential

Teachers are such a powerful force in the universe. Their influence is infinite. There is one teacher who I remember and who stood out more than any other teacher, including my college professors. In high school I signed up for an elective entitled, “Textiles and Clothing.” This course taught students how to apply the principles […]
