  1. LOVE this! Congrats to you on doing big things (my brand new WE planner sits beside me as I type this)…and thank you for the encouragement to pursue the little things and check “all that mess” at the door.

  2. Love this post Whitney- as I love ALL your words. Keep up the great work- I’m so paying attention to your corner, listening and watching you- you are definitely helping. Thank you for living openly.

  3. Thanks for posting this, Whitney. You captured year one perfectly from where I sit just starting it. It is great to hear that you are having a successful year two. Love your voice. Hope to meet you at Alt SLC in a few weeks!

  4. Very sad that you and your followers in the previous blog entry automatically assumed the worst of Tamera (of all people!). I even saw a comment about how sad it was that she couldn’t formulate her own thoughts. She was gracious enough to not only repost and give credit, but to also shout you out again. I came to your blog via her Instagram because your 2014 goals seemed similar to mine, but this will definitely be my last visit.

    1. Nicole, thank you for your comment! I’ve truly been amazed by the past two days. I can see that Tamera is beyond gracious, the epitome of a lady and grace. I hope to follow her example! I’ve definitely learned a lot over the past days, and I’m sure I will blog some more about it. I’m grateful that Tamera has people like you in her community, to stick up for her! I would be so grateful to have someone like you have my back! I mean sincerely, please keep doing that for her!!! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

  5. Whitney, you so deserve everything inch of success that you get, including those sweet words from the well known. You work your behind off while you have babies and a hubby. It’s truly inspiring that you do SO much, and you launched a new product last year. WOW,

    I know that at times we feel like we don’t deserve what we have or maybe we aren’t realizing when you’re wanting more when you already have so much. However, when you get in those funks maybe just take a second remember that your hard work is paying off!

    I’m so excited for you and where 2014 takes you and your work! 🙂

  6. Sometimes…God uses a slap in the face to get your attention. To make you realize with or without credit, you are still changing people’s lives. As a photographer I do get frustrated when I don’t receive credit for one of my images that a client shares on the internet. I used to comment or tag myself or any number of things to tell the world, “HEY!! THAT’S MY WORK! ME!!! I DID THAT!!!” I don’t like reading that attitude on the internet, I feel like a person is grasping at straws and I wanted to change. That is not me. That never was me. Now I just sit back and enjoy watching something I create delight and inspire others, knowing that if the -experience- I provided that client with and the end result is nothing short of amazing…they are already talking about me. And twofold, if someone is so taken by an image, they will dig and sift through the sand to find me. 🙂 Cheers to an awesome 2014!!
