Swallow Your Pride

The DIY series

Well as you may be aware I’m not made of riches and have always enjoyed trying to create stuff with wood. Like Jesus I like carpentry and enjoy the challenge. Even in my days of being the glamorous customer service chic, I was always sawing and knocking something. Then #Ikea came along and the pre-pack was born; so now life is a little easier , or maybe not when I fail to read the manual.

So even though its all a physical challenge and sometimes super back-breaking, today I get to erect the bathroom vanity cupboard. Not sure how it will turn out and how much I will like it but looking forward to the changes that are helping me out of the depressive saga that has impacted and knocked me for six; the only problems is I have a deadline.

So where some of us live for #retail #therapy, I am gonna go with something that will help my visual surrounding… and make me want to invite people in again, and help me mentally to rebuild my life.

Still Hiding from the Truth

How can one expect to seek startdom if they hide from the world what they do?

This is a question I often ask of myself as I put another ounce of creativity into the universe. I love my work and although don’t have half as much time to craft it (which is what I should have spent most of my former years doing) I am truly enjoying what time I have to be able to deliver the ideas that rise within me.

I won’t shy away from the fact the love of the Heavenly Father has carried me through and the testimony of other everyday survivors what allow me to walk with the growth and grace that accompanies me through these testing times.

I realise that no all of us will be lucky enough to reach the pinnacle of entertainment, nonetheless I celebrate the fact I have enjoyed years of sharing what little talent I have been blessed with: WHAT AM I ON ABOUT!!! I HAVE MORE THAN A LITTE!!!

So today’s message is go snatch back what you have in your talent bank. Make the time you have on this plane work for you as you enjoy so that you can hopefully have no regrets. Of course I am looking back on my life and know there are areas where I should have given myself more of chance, nonetheless, I am still growing and loving life, even if under challenged conditions.

LOVE YOURSELF! LOVE LIFE AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO (or at least try).

Knowing Your Strength

Its easy to think you can’t cope as you review the challenge of one episode after the next, taking place in your life.

Take a moment just to reflect – pick a moment in your life when you really thought you were not going to make it through and think back at how you made it through.

Take a moment to review your strategy to identify how you managed through each hour and found yourself ticking off the boxes until there were none.

Be your power of the mind for even with the best advisers, you have the final decision and only you can take the action to eradicate your problem.

Be mindful in your process as not to undertake too much to leave your overwhelmed and disappointed in the event, the plan hits a glitch.

BE THE PERSON YOU WERE CREATED TO BE… BE AMAZING! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aez0th-3Xr4

Testing Soul

I won’t lie to you, cause you know I speak true

These few weeks have been a challenge, I have asked what to do

Been pushed and pulled in ways to endure

Then I ASK and realise, what I’m made for

We all have our challenge, we all have our crosses

But don’t sit there ‘wasted’ and counting your losses

For you still have a future, that’s why you’re alive

So get off your ‘low-ebb’ and go out and strive

The Hunt for Red Sonia

There comes a point in life when a wave passes over you and then you feel like you’ve found yourself. I would like to say I am in that zone… however, I still think I am in growing. I can imagine its because I was designed with an endless bank account of creativity and like most accounts, it will be low at times and then replenishes.

As I pulled back from some of the madness that overwhelmed my life toward the end of 2018, I noticed that as a woman (maturing) there was much I was not so prepared to endure. I guess its a good thing with clarity, and determining your resilience in life.

There is only so much that we are designed for and its okay to think that we can bear all (as in take on) however, as the saying famously suggests, “we are only #human”.

When you have been associated with a certain project for so long, you start to believe that if it is taken away there is nothing left; and this can be seen as true, however if we really tapped into our deep inner-self, we would be truly surprised as to what we could achieve. So I guess that what I am sharing as time runs away with itself, is that I am not done, just yet.

I appreciate that female musical projects will always been in my kitchen however, for having done ‘my part’ I am trying to simmer-down right now so that I don’t, as mentioned before, waste away. I do feel I am breathing a little easier, and realise that its okay for you to show you are NOT IRONMAN for even he had his own breakdown in the movie. So don’t get me wrong, I haven’t mentally broken down, I am simmering as I release the pressure cooker by creating and logging some of my works in the Universe.
