beauty lies within us all.

stephanie nielsen is often on my mind.

when i'm not speaking kindly to myself,
i think of nie nie.

when i feel sorry for myself,
i think of nie nie.

when i'm forgetting to be grateful,
i think of nie nie.

and then i send a little thought
of gratitude her way.
for it's because of stephanie
that i am reminded of
the power of love
and the beauty
that lies within all of us.

if you don't know stephanie's blog,
here's a gentle reminder
to be ever so grateful
for what you have in your life
and to remember this simple,
but ever so true saying,

when you know nie nie's blog,
you will know that this is true.


  1. Amen.

    I love her blog. I would hug her daily if I could. If she'd let me. :) And you too!

    Thanks for staying connected on Twitter. (I changed my twitter name from @MyFengShuiLife to @FluidityYoga)

    Again, beautiful post.

  3. I'm so happy I found her blog through yours. And for that you get a big thanks and virtual hug. *squeeze!* :)
    It's so easy to take the little things for granted... I love that her blog makes me really stop and just REALIZE something that really needs to be realized every single day. Life is so incredibly precious. Thanks again, Kerri.
