spirit in a pimpcoat


one of the things that i have picked up again is my love of the target. we have to keep our eye on the prize and sharpen your aim. there is something so wonderful about the practice of it all. the prize of the target is to live life with the least amount of regrets, i think.

there are situations and people in life with the sole purpose of breaking your spirit. yet, the most wonderful fact is that you have to allow it to be done. there are just some things that no one can take from you. no one has the power to break your stride, except for yourself.

maybe, the rules get a little trickier. okay, promises will continue to be broken and enforced rules will get cherrypicked as to which ones will be followed. yet, spirit stays resilient and Someone always has your back. you have to claim that for yourself.

big news around here is that my studio is almost done. when we moved in, it was the dumping ground so the rest of the house could have a semblance of order as we started school. my goal is to have it done by tuesday and honey, i am on a roll. when i finish, i will share before & after shots. this has been a monkey on my back around here.

go forth and hug your resilient spirit.
oh, and don't forget to don your pimpcoat.

What an adorable photo! I love you, I love your coat and I haven't picked up a pistol since I was in my 20's but I used to be a crack shot. I've thought about getting back into it. Always wonder if I'd be as good??

Love you girliegirl

I don't know if it's the coat or the gun, but I could swear someone just turned the heat up!

Send me the photo.
I'm gonna blow it up, print it out and take strength from it every day.
What's better than a strong woman packin'? They can keep the traditional Goddess stuff. This is REAL Power in Action.
I love it.
