Live In The Present

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.” -Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes those waves are scary …. But, how empowering and exhilarating when we choose to grab hold of that wave anyway!! -Camilla Downs

Friendship Is Precious

“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.” -Thomas Jefferson

Ever felt so grateful and so peaceful that time seems to stand still? And you hear sounds like you’re hearing them for the first time …. Like the rustling sounds of wind blown tree branches rubbing together ….. It’s such a peaceful, joyful feeling!!!

So full of gratitude for friends and family …. FULL, FULL, FULL!! –Camilla Downs

So In Love

“Had I not arrived in a different place than planned, I would never have realized the POWER, WISDOM and COMPASSION that lie within me.” –Camilla Downs

I am so in love with my life, my kids, my friends and family, this place I call “home” …. I have grown, opened my arms and heart and embrace all life has to offer … This different place I have arrived is PERFECT!!!

A Thing of Beauty

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.” -John Keats

For a dear sweet friend of mine who lost her Mom over the weekend … Sending this with a warm comforting hug Monica … My heart and soul weeps with you … –Camilla Downs

Keep Moving Forward

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” -Walt Disney

Never mind the naysayers …. Never mind them, I say …. –Camilla Downs
