You find beauty in ordinary things*

found in yesterday's fortune cookie, shot with Canon Rebel Xsi

Are you trying to find the beauty as well?

I found this in my fortune cookie the other night. It made me gasp (and then photograph it like crazy) because it felt so divine, so true to what I am trying to do around here much of the time.

The camera is my way in. It’s how I’ve trained myself to find the beauty inside whatever story I am living. It’s not all roses over here and I’m sure it’s not where you are either. BUT inside every moment there is always joy and wonder to find if we are training our eyes and hearts to look for it.

Let’s do it together with our cameras in hand! Superhero Photo starts Monday! (I welcome the Instagram obsessed camera phone junkies out there. I’m totally with you)

Wanna manifest like crazy this year?

Would you prefer to clarify your dreams and manifest like crazy? Mondo Beyondo also starts Monday!

Honored to be part of your journeys toward becoming the brightest, most alive version of you possible!

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.

    I can think of no one more deserving of that fortune than you, my dear.

    p.s. I carried you in my heart as I sat by the fire as the snow fell from the sky on new year’s day and I created my mondo beyond list and chose my word for the year. thank you for introducing such a magical practice.

    What beautiful serendipity. The beauty is in how we see it all, isn’t it.

When my son Ben was about 4 years old, he took his very first swim lessons at the local YMCA. I didn’t realize until we arrived that I wouldn’t be inside the pool with him, so I watched from the window just outside. (Albeit a little nervous since he didn’t know how to...
