“I learn every day of my life,
learn it with pain I am grateful for:
patience is everything.”

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Nice discovery… I love this capture.
    Most people think that I’m a very patient person, but every day I have to relearn patience. I guess that might be the same with everyone though. Thank you for the quote.

    that’s a beautiful quote.
    i love the way the smooth cursive line stands out from all the other graffiti. i want to know who that was! did someone get fed up and mutter to themselves, “if you’re going to write all over walls, at least make it beautiful!” and then scrawl their name or secret message in a flowy font. i love it.

    Andrea, you rock!! Leave it to you to make graffiti look amazing and beautiful and magical. I love the photo and the quote. Great post! 🙂

    Love the picture and the quote. I can relate to this quote, it really pertains to the trials I am having in my life. What I have learned over the last 9 months has been painful, but I am slowly recovering.
    Thanks for Sharing

    That Rilke, such a wise guy.
    Patience, yes…so hard to do…yet so true.
    Time heals all wounds.
    No doubt of that.
    Junkwifebite…rolls nicely off the tongue.
    How wonderfully demented.
    I send you oodles of light, tons of patience, and one more wise guy quote…
    “What wound did ever heal but by degrees ?”
    –William Shakespeare

    I was in my yoga class a couple of nights ago, and during some ‘cleansing breaths’ the instructor said, ‘no matter what is going on in your life right now, whatever may seem wrong or right please don’t forget and always always remember:
    The Universe Will Provide.’
    Take good care,
    xo
