Knotty Musings

Ideas, philosophies, and evil plots to take over the world through love hatched here.

I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Treasures and Other Muses

Hi friends,

It's been a busy week; my first week of working my full schedule again. I am still lacking all of my energy but we're slowllllyyy getting there.

Today I visited with some friends and then went "junking" but to me it's treasure hunting. I found some winter boots (leather) for under $10, some black dress shoes, 3 crocheted baby blankets that I'm going to donate to the shawl ministry, a wall plaque, a flower pot (which reads "With the whisper of its petals, the depth of its roots, and the fullness of its bloom, love has touched our souls") and a metal wall hanging for my kitchen (it reads "Life is messy - wear your apron".


  1. I love your finds. The wall plaque is really cute, so is the metal wall hanging. Cute colors! and the flower pot. I guess I don't have a favorite.

    I haven't found anything good in the goodwill or thrift stores in my town for quite awhile.

    I am glad to hear you are getting your energy back even if it is slow in coming back. Hope you have a good weekend.


  2. I usually don't leave my Goodwill empty handed so that's good. I saw lots of cute things there today; I'm so easily tempted by so many things lol!!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the heart shaped doily. Any idea of a pattern for it? too cool.
    thanks for sharing.
