Nicknames. For most they are a term of endearment. To call someone by a shorter version or totally different pet name is a sign you feel love for them.

I recall as a child when someone called me “Juls” instead of the usual “Julie”, my heart would get a little buzz, a flutter feeling like I was more to them than my name originally presented. I felt they had gotten to know me on a level deeper than the rest of the world knew me.

The first time I signed “Juls ❤ ” I remember hearing a negative voice inside of me saying I had left the “e” out. I was not a rebellious child. I always conformed, but this is the one rule I broke for what then seemed the silliest of reasons.

I am lazy. I remember thinking if I am going to sign a shorter version then I don’t want to waste even the slightest time it takes to make an “e”. Besides I’m not doing this for anyone but me.

From that point forward anything I wrote creatively, and anything against the norm, without rules or form—poetry, doodles, books and blogs got signed with the ease of simply Juls without the “e” and a little heart <3.

I think just today I came to terms with my lazy nature. I do things slow like a tree. I am nature so why not be?

I hope from this point forward anyone with a nature as slow as me accepts it, learns to love it and finds a way to celebrate your ease. I send you sweet, slow love from my little, lazy heart growing slowly like a tree. I rest in ease with my slothful nature and in signing Juls without the “e”. ~ Juls ❤
