Dream Bigger

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Kate Perry 2 Comments

Usually, at the start of the year, I make a list of goals I want to achieve in the next twelve months. This year, I’m stepping up my game. I’m making a list of my intentions for the next year. The theme: DREAM BIGGER. I read recently that if your

I Believe I Can

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Kate Perry

Today is for believing and doing. What I believe: That I am love and fairy dust. That the future is brighter than ever. That I’ve finally found home. That I’m worth it. That I manifest what I want. That I am magic. What I’m doing: Laughing. Writing. Painting. Dreaming. Spreading

Say Yes

Posted on: December 26th, 2015 by Kate Perry

“Non” is the French word for no. It’s how I say “No” when I REALLY mean it and I’m not willing to argue. My friend Michelle gave me this necklace. As I opened it, she said, “Whenever you say ‘Non’ like that, I hear you say ‘Yes’ to yourself.” A

O Christmas Tree

Posted on: December 24th, 2015 by Kate Perry

I hadn’t had a Christmas tree in nine years. I’m not sure how that happened. The lights on a tree are my favorite part of the season. All the colors! The warmth! How did I let myself go for that long without even a mini tree? Then I almost convinced

Sunshine and Friends

Posted on: December 16th, 2015 by Kate Perry

Yesterday, a friend I hadn’t seen in a few weeks asked me (very seriously) how I was doing. He’s been concerned about me and deserved an honest answer, so I took a moment to feel it out. Finally I said, “I’m really happy, even though I have sadness and anger

Laundry and Other Magical Happenings

Posted on: December 5th, 2015 by Kate Perry

You know what I’ve been doing today? Laundry. But I’m wearing a sequins while I fold sheets, because there’s no reason it shouldn’t be glamorous.   Appropriately, “I’m so fancy” just started playing. I love it when my cosmic DJ plays along.   Sara Ramsey came to visit me this

Fairy Dust, Rocks, and Tutus

A Haphazard List of Things I’m Grateful For Thanksgiving with my family, which includes my mom, my sister, Ava Miles, Michelle, Suzie, and Robert. Stone and glitter! Pink bubbles! Freedom and independence. Robert’s pumpkin pie, which is going to be my first course today. My gifts, in all their vibrant colors.

Fear and Loving

Posted on: November 16th, 2015 by Kate Perry

Every time I start writing a new story, I have a moment of sheer terror, where I’m not sure how I’ve done it before and I’m positive I won’t pull it off again. It’s crazy. I’ve written over thirty books–I know how to do this. Still, I have these fears.

Magic and Belief

Posted on: November 10th, 2015 by Kate Perry

A few people have contacted me about writing and publishing books. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you this story… Eleven years ago, I’d written two books and had no idea what to do next. E-readers weren’t a thing yet, and the publishing world was a mystery.   Enter

Happiness Manifesto

Posted on: October 27th, 2015 by Kate Perry

I’m a happy person because when I was twenty-three I decided I was going to be. Up to that point, I’d been angry and resentful and sullen–mostly on the inside, but it’d leak onto others. Who wants to live that way? I certainly didn’t. I still don’t. So I’ve been
