daily wisdom.

{find these beautiful nuggets of wisdom here}

i was so intrigued by these "wisdom cards" created by the beautiful suzanne vinson that i came across on instagram. i asked her the story behind them. here is what she said:

i found myself missing wisdom in 2011. hearing the inner voice, yet not listening. only to say in the end "i knew this. why didn't i listen?" so 2012's path became clear: listening to wisdom everyday, speaking wisdom, listening as a practice to then follow wisdom first. wisdom is within me, but also collective. so i wanted to share on my blog: called to create.

each day, i listen. at the end of the day i think about the lessons i learned, the messages i heart within and that surrounded me. one becomes clearer than the rest and i create a wisdom card. it's a fairly bold practice that helps me claim my gentle strength. many claim a given message as theirs. it's fantastic to see what resonates with others.
inspiring, right? i am so moved by her daily practice. i think i will start slowly incorporating the "listening for" and "documenting" words of wisdom into a new journal this week. i'll post pictures soon! 

thank you, suzanne, for sharing your journey with the rest of us. your art is breathtaking!   

you can visit her shop here and her blogs here and here.

  1. such a great idea. its so easy to get wrapped up in life and running and going that we forget to listen. loving these cards! i may need some.

    1. i know!! it would be great to leave some of these cards around the house. for a reminder every once and a while :)

  2. These are very inspiring. I'm trying to teach myself to be more mindful, but I have a long way to go!
