Good morning everyone!😁 I must say I have been journaling more and more lately to the point where I've grown to love it and haven't been able to stop. I never thought I would do it 3 days in a row let alone do it when the moment calls for it. Its been stress relieving actually and I think its such a beautiful way to release all the thoughts that you have scrambled in your mind. I actually feel like I went through a meditated yoga session without the physical acts of yoga and I love it because the truth is I have a really bad habit of over thinking to the point where it gets anxiety inducing and there were times I even had panic attacks without even realizing I was having one and I have recently began to notice with the ❀ palpitations when I go through one. I'm slowly trying to break out of it and I'm not diagnosed with anxiety or anything but every day as I try to grow and better myself in more ways then most I started to notice my own little pitfalls and what I can do to resolve and nourish the deeper parts of myself that need that attention and I don't just journal when I'm stressed I do it because I genuinely enjoy doing it. I enjoy writing. I love the feel of a good pen gliding across the pages as I'm trying to fill in all the lined space on a page as I let out all my ideas, my plans, my goals, my dreams, my stress, my feelings all on these crisp yet smooth pages. I find myself in a place where I know that I can entirely be me and have a space for it. It feels very freeing and I love to flip through the pages as if completed my life's work in a matter of an hour. Yeah that's what that feels like… P.S.

Hey! Everyone!πŸ‘‹πŸ˜„ Check out these new bad boys! I can't wait to read these! So excited! Personal development and #selfhelpbooks are one of my favorite reads! Its so important to continue to educate yourself and grow each and everyday to become a better version of the person you were yesterday and books do just that. I highly recommend adding a book to read to your daily routine its so essential that we get in at least 30 mins to an hour of reading a day whether that's taking the commute to work, waiting on the line at the grocery store, while doing your laundry or during your lunch break. Expand your mind, learn something new, give your brain its daily vitamin READ dose that we all, myself included, are lacking and who knows maybe will be a little better in our mood, our confidence, and even our habits and attitudes will make the world and yours a better place. Don't you agree? #thereviewmode πŸ“š πŸ“š …Now my only problem is needing a bigger book shelf to add to my collection…πŸ˜‚ πŸ“š P.S. Comment down below what's your favorite subject to read? πŸ€” P.P.S.Do you think you have time to include reading in your daily routine and if not tell me why?❀ P.P.P.S.

Check out my progress of making my own stickers!πŸ˜„ Isn’t cute! πŸ»

View this post on Instagram

So I have been thinking and planning a lot lately about how and when I'm going to get my shop up and running. I really want to make stickers, pins, shirts, make a #brand of all my favorite things, but I'm not much of an artist. I don't have any fancy program and I can't draw professionally or at all for that matter πŸ˜†. Its funny I can visualize everything but making it all come to life with the very little skills that I have is making the process a little more difficult then I thought. I mean their are so many amazing artists and writers on Instagram and YouTube and I'm no where near as talented. But what if I found my own way of doing things I mean I did the research and watched how everyone else is doing it but what if I found a way to cultivate my own original work. I also refuse to get some random cartoon stencil online or hire someone to do it all for me. I want it to be original and if I really need the help and guidance I'll ask but for now I just want to see if I can do it on my own accord and so……… I did this!πŸ˜ƒTa dah!πŸ™ˆπŸ‘Where there's a will there's a way! I took a pic of this 🐻 from my bedroom πŸ˜† using a #instapic πŸ“·! Isn't cute!😍✨ Imagine this as a #pin , a #sticker , on a #shirt , on a key chain or maybe even a charm on a necklace. The possibilities are endless! I'm even more stoked now to get this off the ground! You can do it! Make your dreams come true!πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ŠπŸ™ ✨ ✨….And uh yes its 5:30 in the morning!!!😭πŸ˜ͺπŸŒžπŸ˜‚ ✨ P.S. Comment down below would you buy this? πŸ€” P.P.S.What would you do to make your dreams come true?❀ P.P.P.S. Follow,Like, and Comment for more content! P.P.P.P.S.

A Letter to My Future SelfπŸ–‹

Trying out my new calligraphy kit! So cool! I’m thinking about taking Calligraphy Lessons!πŸ˜ŠπŸ’“
I forgot to change the month on my calendar! It was so cool using that candle to make that stamp and the feather calligraphy pen I used was a little hard to use but it was still fun. The gold pen is what I use for journaling its one of my favorites.😌
Letter: Dear, Future Self,
I want you to know that this new beginning you are about to embark on is going to be full of obstacles that I know your going to handle on your own and you are going to seek help from time to time but sometimes that help can come in the form of prayer, patience, perseverance, and understanding. You have to be strong, smart, and think before you speak. It will be alright. Read this as a reminder that everything will be okay and work out in the way it was meant too.
Love, yours truly. ❀
XOXO

Life…

Life! I often wondered why life had to be such an obstacle. Why humanity had to spin around and around like a hamster wheel going nowhere when there should be something rewarding and deserving in the end of all that struggle. Even as a child there is some form of struggle that you have to endure,but as adults we tend to look at children as being lucky not having to worry about bills, tickets,high cholesterol, etc. But as adults we also forget that children are looking at us as these powerful God-like figures that have the ability to do anything and everything such as…reaching the kitchen sink for example. We forget that children have to struggle grasping the circle of life, emotions, colors, numbers, hygiene, essentially how to live in order to survive until they reach adulthood, but even though we gain all the basic life skills that we learn growing up as a child you come to learn as an adult that the struggle isn’t over and you have to continue to learn in order to prepare for the next life obstacle. Throughout history humanity has been forced to learn over and over again in order to:

(A) Overcome the next obstacle that life presents to them

and

(B) To stop making the same mistakes they made in the past until they learned the lesson that was prescribed.

Which begs the question… what is life?

Is it an endless cycle of paradigms of universal decree or are we bound to something more greater then the average day to day. Whatever the case may be something has got to give to this thing called life that we all get lost in and should not take for granted. Lets not forget those children and adults that struggle with disease, poverty, and a broken home. We need to be humble and appreciate what life has to offer and make our mark on it because when we do leave no one will know why you were here? What was your purpose or you contribution to humanity? Did you leave your mark? Your mark doesnt have to be big it could be something simple as cooking dinner for your family or taking your child to the playground. Let someone remember you for your service, accomplish your goals, make your dreams a reality even the arts and entertainment section make some sort of a contribution to humanity. Did that artist not make you wonder at their piece and question and allow your mind to process the details of their work? Did the show not put a smile on your face and give you necessary endorphins that contributed to your development as a child? Is it this cosmos thats got you doubting your true capacity and abilites to shine. I remember taking my red bike for a ride as a child and when I reached a hill I would look over and get so excited not realizing the fall I was about to endure but once I went down I felt like I was flying but as soon as I felt like I was losing control I hit the break to hard and almost colided into incoming traffic, but when I did it again I learned if I press the break a little at a time while going down the hill, (slowing down my speed) that I wouldnt have to worry about getting hit by a car. Thats how I would describe life you learn how to ride but you dont know how to steer until you try. So ride in steps and see where the view takes you lets just hope its not a one way trip to nowhere and if it is at least you can say you tried and you can always try the next hill that your willing to take on.

Rain…

Rain! I love the rain! It makes me happy and it makes me sad because its peaceful at the same time depressing. I remember me and my younger sibling would run bare foot in the pouring rain, splashing and kicking our feet in these big dirty puddles enjoying mother nature’s pool. We would get soaked from head to toe smiling and laughing at the sound of the splashes at the same time screaming and ducking in fear of the thunder and lightning. We loved that we were the only ones outside enjoying this disaster as the world stood silent until the threat was over. As we embarked on our quest of rain tag not caring what anyone thought or if we got sick we took it all in; the moment of all moments. At the end of our play we would go back inside wrap ourselves into something really fuzzy and warm while drinking hot chocolate watching the rain until it stopped. Once it did… it was back… the world of machines and meaningless gossip. The cleanse was over until the sun came to dry and warm the earth. I miss those days. Those days when all you had to worry about was getting sick and mom not finding out you’ve been eating the brownies all this time. Now that I’m older I still like to feel young again, a kid at heart sometimes, but unfortunately most of my rainy days are used to hide my bad days, my tears, but once it rains and I get caught in the middle of it I enjoy it. While everyone else is hiding under the store hoods and bus stops I would keep walking. I would walk and walk until I was soaked from head to toe feeling cleansed by mother nature’s shower. It felt so good…refreshing actually until I had to go home and take a shower and change. This beautiful oxymoron of happy and sad weather was the definition of my childhood. I didnt understand why the sadness was there it just was. This feeling of emptiness that needed something to fill this void I had inside me. Well now that I’m older I think I realized why I was so empty I was seeking something that wasn’t there or never existed an adventure of sorts that played with my imagination until reality sank in and the sun came up. Sometimes the journey is not what’s around you its what you make of it. You are the key to your own treasure chest its up to you if you decide to open it.

A.H. 😊
