Sometimes all we have is our response to the hand we are dealt. There is such beauty and grace in the process of learning how to navigate this world of ours and finding the love in any given situation is something we here at the BSP are constantly inspired by. Often, we find brands that exemplify this mindful lifestyle and it is such an honor to be able to introduce you to one of them today.

Laurie Libman-Wilson created Studio Penny Lane in memory of a close friend upon his passing. Her mission is one that is best shared via her own words:

The goal is to positively reset the direction of how we teach our children by eliminating patterns of negativity, fear and even helplessness, and replace them with the tools to love without condition, dream courageously, and recognize and nurture each child’s true gifts. Our intention is to empower youth to create positive change in their own lives and ultimately their families, schools, communities and the world. Studio Penny Lane was created in memory and in honor of the Morales family may this shed some light on an unspeakable tragedy. One penny, one child, one thought at a time.

Studio Penny Lane is not only a brand with a mission. They are also a brand with gorgeous, meaningful pieces that you will cherish forever. These are also the kind of pieces that make giving feel so good since there is such a positive meaning and reaffirmation of love in each one. We can be the change, after all.

    I struggle with my weight, and I took up running in August. It’s not easy for me, in any way. I have to force each step I take. A few weeks ago I was on a running trail and a woman was coming towards me. She looked like me…a bit overweight, hating every second of this ridiculous idea we had to try to run. Just as she passed me, she shot her hand up and gave me a high five, and said “looking good girl, you got this!” I have never had such a tiny encounter mean so much to me. She gave me the strength to finish that run, and I remember her constantly. I ran 7 miles last week and am in training for a half marathon in Feb. That strangers words will be with me the entire way.

    At the close of the year in 8th grade, I gave a speech to my classmates and their families. Afterward, someone’s random grandfather approached me and said, “You have a wonderful voice for radio.” To an awkward, smart-but-self-conscious-of-it kid who firmly believed she had no talent except studying, that was the beginning of my realization that I had gifts and unique qualities. I wish I could say “that was the beginning of my career in radio,” but so far, reading the news on NPR remains a dream–but I have since learned to use my voice to help/inspire/serve others.

    after battling cancer (had multiple surgeries, six months of chemo and 1.5 months of radiation), my husband calls me the brevets person he knows. it makes me feel strong and confident. 🙂

    When I was 14, a boy that I loved told me I was beautiful, and seeing his face I knew he really meant it.  I had always felt gangly and awkward before, but in that moment, seeing how he saw me, I was able to see myself as beautiful too. The boy is long gone, but the confidence remains.  And I have always made it a priority to compliment those around me on their appearance, hard work, consideration, and talents because words matter!

    From my father who told me I was smart.  I may not be an over achiever like my sisters.  But hearing my dad say I was smart in my own way really made me feel special.

    My husband told me that he thinks I’d be a good mother. Now this is probably standard husband-speak in a lot of marriages, but definitely not mine. I’ve never liked kids and I’m never wanted to have any. Not only that, but I think I’d be terrible at motherhood – like the kind of mom who packs her bags and takes off in the middle of the night. 
    But to know that my husband thinks me so capable is so heart warming. To think that he would entrust me with his child is so amazing to me and it makes me rethink how I see myself.

    Last week, my daughter did a Thankfulness project in her kindergarten classroom. Her teacher asked her to list 5 things she was thankful for and she wrote them down and turned them into a project. Here was my daughter’s list 1) I am thankful I have a warm and pretty place to live 2) I am thankful I have food and that sometimes we got to share it with people who don’t have much food 3) I am thankful I get to go to ballet class with my best friend 4) I am thankful I have a good mommy 5) I am thankful I have a loving mommy. When she shared the list with me she said “Kids really should have good mommies. And I do have one!”

    I don’t think any of this was meant as a “compliment” but it feels like the nicest thing anyone could say to me – and it means the most coming from her. Sometimes I feel like I fail as a parent SO much, and my daughter and I are struggling to work together. But for all my mistakes, to hear that what I WANT to communicate to her is getting through – WHEW! What can I say? It inspires me to keep doing what I’m doing and to fight to be the best mommy I can be.

    The best compliment I have ever received is being told that I brighten up a room. I love to make those around me smile and laugh and feel alive because in turn it makes me feel the same way.

    In a world where everyone feels they need to stand out and be noticed, I remind myself that it’s good to be quiet. The best thing people say about me is that I’m kind.

    When I was in 7th grade, my history teacher told me I was compassionate. I didn’t really know what that word meant, but after I looked up the definition, I was a little confused because, being 13 years old, I didn’t feel compassionate. But I then realized maybe I am, and so I’ve always tried to be compassionate with others and for what I like to do.

    After a semester of completely feeling over my head as a 25-year-old college instructor, a 22-year-old student approached me and asked how she could become like me one day. All semester, I had felt inadequate and often stared into a classroom of blank stares. To know I influenced a student and helped her discover her own path was rewarding. She later told me she’d be studying abroad somewhere that would really challenge her – just like a story I had told in class. I wanted to be a professor because of several great professors I’d had, and I still hope to be like them.

    I like to meet and host and show around people who visit my area through a number of websites. We had one couple from Australia that came and we ended up spending an entire weekend with them. They were some of the most inspirational people I have ever met, living their dreams by making sacrifices. On the top of dreams and bucket lists , they asked if they could review mine. When they got to my item that said: “Change someone’s life for the better,” they said to me that I could cross that off because I had done that for them. I’ve never forgotten that. To know that you have enriched someone’s life is such a gift! (And an amazing compliment)
