Leithia Warren in the Palace of Versailles by VidalDon’t Quit. Don’t Surrender. Each of us has a LIFETIME and MILES and MILES of DREAMS, GOALS, WISHES, AMBITIONS and DESIRES that whisper to us and vibrate within our SOUL. We somehow feel that we are too busy, too limited, too restricted to PURSUE the GOODNESS that is ECHOING in our SPIRIT. Step out of the box, the comfort zone of yourself and IMAGINE stepping TOWARDS the DREAM(s), walking TOWARDS your JOY, embracing your BLISS and even if you sit in silence for 5-10 minutes feeling what that would feel like, you will notice an EXCITEMENT well up in your SOUL. You will feel an ENERGY that is being gathered. It’s your ENERGY. It’s your POTENTIAL. It’s your LIGHT. Do NOT ever DIMINISH your LIGHT because of circumstances, limitations that others place on you, or shallow expectations of those who have sacrificed their own LIGHT and now can’t find their way. You are RESPONSIBLE FIRST and FOREMOST for YOUR own path and journey. You are WORTHY of KNOWING LOVE. You are HONORED by FEELING LOVE. We are all connected through the DIVINE LIGHT and LOVE of our CREATOR. Your potential is ENDLESS. Your LIGHT is ENDLESS. This JOURNEY during our Earth School Days is NOT ENDLESS. We didn’t plan our BEGINNING and we do not plan our END. However, EVERYTHING in between is UP TO US. Step into your LIGHT and step into YOURSELF. Welcome Home…now get to DOING & LIVING & DREAMING. Step into YOUR LIGHT and SHINE!!!
Dream. Reach. Live. Do.Leithia Warren in the Palace of Versailles by Vidal

Wedding Photographer, Event Planner, Weddings, Themed Parties all Events for Key West!

The holidays are upon us and it can be a very joyful time of year. Some of us have problems during the holidays and sometimes are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us. And, many people have no one to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring thoughts and loving prayer right now. If I don’t see your name, I’ll understand. May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy, paste, and share this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!! I did it for a friend and you can too. “If you don’t look good..I don’t look good!”
