Keeping a Promise

Hey Guys!!!

As promised I have attached a free downloadable Promise worksheet.

A few weeks before relaunching the blog I did a bit of research on promises and why, more often than not, we tend to break them. I had felt this overwhelming need to make a promise to myself but fear of my self-sabotage ways started to seep in.

Do you have trouble keeping promises with yourself? Do you make excuses rather than sticking to your goals?

What I learned was that the benefits could be more rewarding than the actual promise it self as they can improve our lives and help support your aspirations and aims. It can be a test of integrity which can help you recommit to your word and encourages confidence.

  • Knowing we can rely on ourselves makes us feel better.
  • If something were to come up that could prevent you from keeping your word, your integrity can help you recommit to your promise if you do find yourself off course.
  • Gain all the approval you’ll ever need… your own!
  • Break your goal or promise in to bite size pieces so that achieving your goal is easier to accomplish.
  • Reward yourself!

For more details check out the article in the reference section that goes into further detail and print out the attached pdf and spend some time determining what it is it you want to quit or start doing. Figure out how and what it takes to achieve said goal and whether or not your serious about doing what it takes to achieve it. Fill out the worksheet and hang it on your bathroom mirror or in your cubicle or on the fridge or on the door of the cookie pantry.

We all pretty much have an idea of what it is we want to achieve but having a piece of paper sorta keeps you visually accountable. It’s no longer floating around in the back of our minds. Your promise is special no matter the size of it and it’s yours to cherish. Nurture it and let it grow and prosper and help you seize your aspirations.

Goodbye Negativity!

Today was interesting as far as the romantic side of my life goes. We make so many excuses for a significant other; while never extending that same compassion and understanding to ourselves.

And why… for what??? When in the end, more often than not, we should have taken the time to give ourselves a break, to extend ourselves the understanding we are so willing to give to others.

It’s not to say you shouldn’t (to a degree)… but I think  instead of making excuses for people’s actions who clearly don’t care about our feelings, instead of wasting that energy on them, we focus it on us and give ourselves a chance.

Instead of berating and believing in all that self-doubt… we need to consciously decide to speak to ourselves with loving compassion. Don’t allow people to treat you or make you think you are anything less than unbelievably unique and amazing; And then sit there and think of excuses to why they treat you a certain way.

Stop that now. Please. Let it all go and be willing to give yourself the same compassion and understanding we so often give to others.

Stay Gracious

My birthday is quickly approaching! EEE… Birthday’s are always special when you have something extra to celebrate, like a new job or graduating. Those kinds of milestones make your birthday a tad more rewarding. And though I have accomplished neither (recently)… I can’t help but celebrate: this here blog with its one follower, my instagram that is gaining a couple of followers a week and that I feel overwhelming reassured about my artistic future.

I’ve been a tad stressed as I have so many ideas and I can’t wait to share them with you! But with all my hopes and dreams I just wish to Stay Gracious. That through all of this I have a humble, happy heart that is excitedly pursing her artistic creative nature.

So yes… Stay Gracious and BEautifullyODD

I’ve attached wings to my heart…

I am a firm believer in putting your heart on the line. If they smash it to pieces it will be fine. I know how to put it back together. It may suck… but instead of wallowing in the pain im trying to break it open even more. Filleting my heart wide, gaping, hanging on a clothes line, vulnerable to the elements. Airing out the dew and mold, releasing the tainted blood that still flows through its system… i lay my heart out, not for u, but i. I have taken it from its cage and have planted a seed in its crown and attached wings to its side. You cant break a heart that’s already been broken.

Patience

Every Monday for me is a reminder of how much I didn’t accomplish during the weekend. It’s a drag to have to get up and go to your full-time job, that you know you are beyond blessed in even having in the first place, but let’s be honest… hate.

And though my weekends have been enjoyably  more productive… I still want so much more to be done… organized… accomplished. And when I have to stop and go to my job… I feel so panicked. It’s frustrating. And my brain doesn’t turn off when I go to work: it doesn’t stop you from having to keep in contact with clients or to jot down a few notes and consume your breaks with any thing related to art to help keep you sane.

Honestly every second sucks. lol. I know, I’m working on that but until then… PATIENCE is what I’m calling on.

The patience to do my mind numbing job so that I can pay for my rent. (i love home)

The patience to not feel like everything has to be done and organized or the need to have tons of content on standby. 

The patience to let all of this unfold in its own time.

To be patient with my self. To be patient with others.

To be patient with the universe because I know everything is coming together.

BeautifullyODD,
