Believe In Your Art and Your Creativity

Yesterday I spent all day creating. I doodled things and I painted things and I sketched things and it was so freaking amazing. It felt so right and I felt like myself for the first time in a while. Yet, I think back to the thoughts that I thought before I picked up the paintbrush. “What you paint is going to suck so don’t have high expectations.” “Your art is never going to look as good as anyone else’s.” “Expect crap and maybe it won’t be as bad as you think. It MIGHT turn out all right.” When I was an early teen I felt so good about my art. I felt like my stuff was beautiful and it didn’t matter what anyone else thought because I rocked. Then the years of depression hit and every time I tried to make art I just ended up feeling bad about what I…

Evening Self-Care Routine

Hey sweets! Today we’re going to have a conversation about that thing that we do at night with the pillows, and the bed, you know what I’m talking about… Sleep! Are you getting enough of it?

Stop Being At War With Your Past

Jamie Ridler is sharing another prompt with us today. She asks us “What or whom do you wish to make peace with.” I had to think on this for a little bit because I realized that there is a lot of stuff hanging around in my head and heart that I need to make peace with. There are so many mistakes I’ve made as a human being. So many things that I wish I could undo. There’s a voice inside that whispers: Stop being at war with your past. Make peace with yourself. The me from seven years ago. I still carry her with me sometimes and I realize that it is time to make peace with her and let her go. When I was 19 I had my very first relationship, he also happened to be married. That whole situation, all two years’ worth, defined me for a very long time.…
