Life of panic and anxiety bondage be gone!
I ran today again. Easy... Well kinda... Florida August humidity is real! I ran. It was hot. That would have made me stop before.
But I am stronger and more confident now and have prepared myself for this type of activity well.
After my Week 5 Day 3 shoulder, HIIT, and core workout, I threw on my sneakers and grabbed my headphones.
It felt good to be able to to listen to some of my favorite personal development and learn skills that help me grow while I show up for myself and stretch myself everyday
Today I listened to a teacher I have great appreciation for talk about how we can take the power of our imagination to use it for our growth or to keep us in fear and stuck in our worsening conditions (because we are only going forwards or backwards... there really is not a same place option). I realized that I had let so much of my imagination run me in the wrong direction for so much of my life. Fear told me to avoid growth and fueled anger, avoidance, and resistance. I let my imagination control me instead of learning how to use hope to control it.
I of course learned discernment and now have a healthy fear of failure which says "if you don't want to fail, get going in the right direction" so consistently that you will be able to steer around the obstacles instead of running right into them.
Today I ran. It was a short, comfortable run. I for it in and made it happen. And I feel good about it.
Then I worked. I worked on my business, I helped others, and I shared my hop and resources.
Then I enjoyed my family and I embraced life withy girls and my husband and took care of my home.
Tomorrow, I will do great all over again. I will see where I want to be in my future and plan and execute my day accordingly.
What great things are you imagining for yourself? What are you doing to get there?

I mentioned in a previous post that there are 3 versions of the Nefertiti Earrings. Model Jasmine is wearing one of those versions called the Nefertiti LE (limited edition) Earrings in Sterling Silver adorned with Hematite and Garnet. Hematite is known for its grounding properties, and Garnet for love and protection. It just made sense to bring both together in this design. Proudly 100% handmade! 🙌🏼😘💯

My manta for 2018 is "make more, think less"...which apparently has turned into "MAKE ALL THE GIFS". 🙈
I used to agonize over every piece of design I created, and worry if it was good enough to share. But this year I've been trying to not give a shit and just create work that brings me joy. Hence all the GIFs. 🙌 🤗
And the cherry on top of sharing work I love to make? People are now paying me to do it! This was one of my first paid GIFs for an email newsletter series. So my friends, stop giving a shit and do work for fun. And hire me to make GIFs. Lots of GIFs. #iamagifmachine
