Once I was young, now getting older😀😀, I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken and her seed beg bread. I’m facing my front, channeling my energy and emotions to improve myself. Not what they have said or are saying but what I am daily saying to myself is important. Not what I had done or didn’t do but what I am doing now to achieve excellence and my purpose. I win daily even though in small measures because the joy of Jehovah is my strength.
When a paragraph just hits you💥💥 Just started reading @gabbybernstein Judgment Detox and I don't know why I let it sit in my bedside drawer for as long as it has. Pretty sure I brought it a month ago but oh well, I'm getting to it now.
Already I've read some insightful things; judgement is lack of love. We've become disconnected from our true love and become fearful.
Already knowing before stsrted reading that who/what we judge is a reflection about us, not them. What we are judging specifically is a trait within ourselves we're not owning up to and keeping hidden so we don't become vulnerable and more fearful. And that's regardless of if you're judging yourself or someone else.
But I have news for you; vulnerability is not fearful. It's fearless and where our true love lies. Deciding to own up to your judgements, think about why you're thinking that way and realising what triggered it, is the first step to the detox.
I'm excited for the rest of this book🙌📖
Finally finished, i know ita a littlenlate to be finishing my page for july but uni and my graduation keep me busy. I was inspired by finding out there is a tolkin trail near my new home, love lord of the rings. Though i think while drawing her i was thinking of a charater as it bares a little resemblance to someone i think. Looked up and elvish quote for the side to inspire me to. Now to think of what to do for august. Suggestions welcome and feedback on picture, not sure if i should add a bullet journal section to my portfolio so all input is appreciated. #lordoftherings#elves#tolkieninspired#bulletjournallove#bujojunkies#art#developingmyskills
This was a good read to understand love languages. There are 5 love languages and everyone has a primary one that fills their love tank.
Sometimes people tend to love others in the way they would like to be loved; this doesn't always work when the other person's love language is different to your own. You must figure out what is theirs and speak their language in order to fill their tank.
There's too many unloving relationships in this world who don't understand that love is a choice and even in a 30 year marriage that's on edge, tapping into each other's love language can save the marriage before it's too late (the last chapter tells that story). In hindsight, I can see why some of my past relationships ended (also, personal growth, independence and knowing I'm not one to fuck with might have something to do with it also🤣) and going forward, I'll know what to do if either mine or my man's love tanks start to feel low.
Knowing each other's love language takes out the guess work of wondering 'how to fix' & 'what to do' in those particular situations. The beauty of both our primary languages being the same makes our job even easier because we'll know that the way we love is the way we want to be loved. #winning 🙌
Check out the book, give it a read, do the test at the end to find out what your language is, test your partner to find out theirs then start speaking the lingo to increase both your mojos😍
📖NEW BOOK PURCHASE📖
I love that I've gotten into reading these past few months. I'm a better reader than listener (I have the app Audible but don't use it🤷♀️), I feel I really tune out and tune into what I'm reading. It's my escape from reality for a little while and I love getting lost in a good book and learning new things the world has to offer.
I do have this thing though, that I've realised I've started doing... I'm getting a bit of a collection before finishing my current book or even starting my next one in line so maybe I should hold off on book purchases for the next month or so till I get through them all... ....yeah right, that's like saying I'll buy a new sports bra when my others are completely worn out; just doesn't happen🤣🤣 @gabbybernstein I can't wait to see what this book has in store for your readers. Your last one guided me through an emotional part of my life and made me put faith in the Universe and my path. I can't wait to let go of inner and outer judgement and kick life's ass👊👊
📖B O O K R E C O M M E N D A T I O N📖 "Minimalism is a tool to eliminate life's excesses and focus on the essentials"
Cut the crap that isn't serving a purpose in your life, adding value or doesn't help you grow; things (assets) and people.
Focus more on 🍇HEALTH💕RELATIONSHIPS✨PASSIONS💪GROWTH🙌CONTRIBUTION.
Anytime you do anything ask yourself, is it improving one of the 5 values? If not, get rid of it immediately.
I still have a bit more culling to do in my home but most of the crap I'd been holding onto for 'in case' but yet still had served no value in my life in the last 12 months or more, is gone. Don't second guess it, let it go.
Read of the month! 📖📖 Do you delve into personal development?
I do and it's the best thing I've been introduced to! I've gotta keep at it so I keep my mind wide open and learn more things about myself I never knew!
It's a great thing being able to learn new things about our self, lives and others and how better to deal with life in general!
Being able to wrap our own heads around how and why our brains work the way they do is great and can't wait to get deeper into this sort of thing!
What's your favourite PD/self-help book?
So my friends... I've been working on this Namibian landscape, forgetting about it, then coming back to it. I'm always hoping to evolve. I've used copper undertones, left parts of the underpainting exposed, layered etc. What to do now?... please give any inputs so I can continue to grow as an artist. #growth#landscape#newefforts#namibia#developingmyskills#beingbravetoday
Sketch 2 of me,In Love🖤 "I've been looking at my old drawings and just been focusing on details more then just going in with a head start of drawing,I remember myself just quickly free hand my drawings with out not taking the time to actually draw freely...I used to make a lot of mistakes on it.Ive got frustrated then ripped out my drawing and throw it away in the garbage,Now after the years of practicing a lot and be very more detailed of my drawings I finally took out my time just be free and go in with a open mind when I draw because I've used to rush with out thinking to myself to take things slowly and go easy on myself...From my favorite Anime shows and reading Manga books and seeing other artistes drawings and see their styles and how I've be come more inspired to the point I've developed my own style slowly...I'm happy that my progress in drawing is getting better slowly and I hope to reach my goals. #love#sketch#inlove#progress#newstyle#developingmyskills#sketching#drawingcomingsoon#art#artistsoninstagram#artist#artnyc#artanime#nyc#nycartist#nycanime#drawingme#sketch2#comingsoon#gn#share4share#like4like#ihopelikeit#gn
Great Saturday trying out new projects. I've always wanted to try out cutting-boards, these ones, made out of pinewood turned out quite well. Though I struggled with handles at first, I opted for this simple design. And, a little something for my wife's project. #carpentryisfun # carpenterinthemaking #apprentising#learningnewthings#developingmyskills
I made this pendant for myself over a year ago, but never posted any photos of it. I had been going through my dresser drawers and found a small box containing shells and beach stones that I picked up on our trip to Tofino (see previous post) and put away and forgot about. I was so happy to find them and knew I needed to make a pendant using one of the stones. The bottom stone in this pendant is one of those stones. The top stone is cut from a piece of amber that was given to me by a friend and colleague. The middle stone is aqua chalcedony. I'm obsessed with this stone. It is thought to have healing properties and provide emotional balance to the person who wears it and who couldn't use more of that?
