everything will be ok: by michelle cavigliano (my zoetrope)

you know, people, everything WILL be ok.

sometimes i get really worried (about what, you ask? oh, everything! i'm a worrier), and if i can stop for a minute and realize that everything in my life has always been ok-- even the not-so-good things that have happened have never been too much for me to handle-- then it seems clear that everything will continue to be ok.

i really believe that we will never be given more than we can handle in our lives, and that each experience holds the seed of a lesson to learn. when i feel as if everything is not ok, there is a seed in there to turn my thoughts around and notice that everything is ok, just as it is.

anyway, this is a long-winded introduction to michelle cavigliano's gorgeous piece that spawned my rambling. :) this is part of michelle's love and peace series-- she says "sometimes you need to just pause and let things that are getting you down, wash over you." so true, michelle!

michelle has lots of lovely links to click over to: her website (make sure you don't miss the gorgeous patterns!), her blog, her etsy shop, and you can follow her on twitter!

*huge thanks, michelle!*


  1. wow. I need to look at this everyday. Thanks for sharing!

  2. You're so sweet Jess! Thank you for including me in your project! :)

  3. Such great inspiration, from one worrier to another. It will be o.k!

  4. Yes, what u say is so true, Jess. Its important to look at things from this perspective.
    Love the design & the colours!!

  5. so very true! i tend to worry over EVERYTHING myself... but sometimes if i stop to actually THINK about things, everything always seems to just work out the way it was supposed to - all by itself.

    happy weekend!
