The Joy of Completion

#tbt (well it’s not Thursday anymore, point just the same)

Old habits diehard, but I can’t expect those same habits to open new doors either. I’m slowly accomplishing all the projects I have started & the simple quote holds true “There is joy in completion.” I keep that in the forefront of my mind whenever I get the urge to drop something & start a new project.

I have definitely taken necessary steps to ensure my Self-ccarries a priority in life and I’m starting to shed what doesnt work and unhealthy. Little bit of motivation that’s helping me along the way.

Deferred Dreams 🚫 Beautiful Nightmares

Came across this post on social media and it resonates so deep, especially from the events of this past week. Every had someone try to inflict their false negative narratives on to you?

Time and time again the old saying holds true “We are our own worst critics” so with that being said I dont need assistance with anyone reminding me my own of shortcomings. That’s why I typically flee from hurtful conversations where the next person is just bringing up situations from the past with no intend to resolve anything. Just for the sake of putting you down, so toxic. So I literally end that negative talk and let them go about their business. I’m all for self improvement, so I’m not insinuating that anytime some is calling you out on your bullsh*t label them as toxic and dismiss them, NO! πŸ™…πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ I’m referring to someone becoming a naysayer and attempting to implant those same false narrative viewpoints in your own mind.

Whatever thoughts they have against you reaching for and going after your goal is an internal problem they have with themself. That type of negativity has no room anywhere near me.

When I had this incounter, it reminded me of the great poets Langston Hughes work, A Dream Deferred

For those who turned their backs on what they really aspired out of life become so bitter and do everything in their power to deter you from accomplishing your goals. Attempt to plant little seeds of doubt in your brain so you dont want to achieve greatness.

But it doesn’t work on me anymore, once a upon a time as a little girl it would have. But now I’m able to identify it and see when it rears its ugly head, so I send it packing. Return to sender, I dont want nor need such negativity. I have my Goal Getter list that must be achieved, with every fiber of my being I believe in myself and my capabilities. Regardless of what you may think its not my business and I’m not concerned. In fact I am just that much more motivated to finish my goals, it’s not a race and bottom line I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, maybe not immediate. But INDEFINITE, I WILL SUCCEED!!!

Thanks for stopping by. As always:

Peace & Love

P.S dont take no one’s sh*t especially when you have a goal, that’s yours believe it, work hard at it, achieve it.

Mental Wellness is a struggle we can ALL relate to.

Personally I dont like the term ” #MentalIllness” because it has such a negative undertone. And the stigma that society puts on those who experience some form of difficulty is unearthing. Often leaves the person isolated and withdrawn worried of appearing crazy or outside of the “norm.” (Cause there is no such thing as normal. Just people running around trying to live up to the expectations of others, which is just a recipe for disaster)

Just know it’s more common than you may think. We all have either have a family member, know a friend or you, yourself may be dealing with Wellness issues. Please dont feel as though you’re a “burden” or keep everything bottled in. There are people around you who love you and care. Reach out, believe it or not your presence makes an impact.

In light of all the news of suicides in the media please dont suffer in silence. Even if you do feel alone and think you have no outlets you can always try the National Suicide Lifeline

Please let’s prevent tragedy from ever occurring. Reach out if you need to, they’re available 24/7.

Let’s be kind to one another, more forgiving of ourselves, and less judgmental πŸ™πŸΎ

Small victories πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

I always have to remind myself that all my accomplishment; big, small, and everything in between is worth celebrating.

With that being said; I recently created a cropped bustier top. With Sweetheart neckline, princess panel, criss-cross straps in the back reinforced, boning. I was just so happy with the way it turned out I had to put it on & snap a few photos.

Im still up in the air about the skirt. But taking a moment to pat myself on the back for this one 😊

As always; Peace & Love,

Mondays are for creating

Happy Monday Peeps.

Here’s to a productive & fulfilling week.Β #NoteToSelfΒ the plan don’t work unless you doΒ πŸ’ͺ🏾get active, create, & be blessedΒ #GoodMorningΒ 31960682_10102208254741987_8783270019388669952_oΒ I am very happy that I’ve been creating and productive. Pushing myself when Im not as motivated use to be such a task, seemed like a huge roadblock for me sit down and create. One think that helps me is literally putting things in perspective, nothing makes me cringe more than wasting time. Im absolutely frightened of being suck in the same situation a year from now with no type of progress. Another tip that helps is knowing myself and when Im most productive; soon I get up for about 2 hours, before I head to work and at night. Pretty much whenever its quiet with the less amount of distractions I am able to find my groove, and get to work. As well as listening to music, playing my favorite tunes just makes the work seem to go smoother, Im more relaxed and eager to get the job done.

What are some of your helpful tips to get Goals accomplished?

Note to self πŸ“πŸ™‹πŸΎ

β€œEverything that I’ve ever done I can still relate to, and feel connected to it in a way. There’s no part of my life that I look at and go, β€˜I don’t recognize that person at all.”
― Ian Mckaye

​I came across a quote the other day, about not being ashamed of your work. At some moment in time this body of work  gives life to an experience, something I went through. It freezes the moment in time, evoking similar emotions whenever revisited.
I’m at the point were I won’t say its shame but more so judging… Guess when it all boils down to it, its all just fear. Fear of my work not being good enough, nor coming out the way I envisioned. Or even worse, messing up and having to start over.

So its an on going process of reminding myself, although I’m not ideally where I want to be & not producing my best quality of work. I keep in mind that’s how I get better, just keep working. Build on my craft, nobody is great when they’re first starting out.

Thats what’s so magical about art & engrossing one’s self in their craft. Sure it may not come out exactly as envisioning, but always leave wiggle room. Allow yourself permission to slip up, recover and find your way again. Keeping in mind imperfections means character, and the spontaneity challenges lead to fun.

For this week I’m starting it off with the intention to stay focused on my goal. After I evaluated my organization skills, it led me to realize how much of my time that’s not devoted to mastering my craft or had anything to do with my passion. Which is so problematic, I made up my mind to limit distractions and find no excuses, just get to work. A technique that’s been working for me is working for 30-45 mins undisturbed. When I set out to work for a certain period it usually over flows 2 more hours of working undisturbed. It seems simple but it so true concentration and focus can only exist when distractions are eliminated. Which gets steps closer to manifesting the goal of completing this garment. This is House Of Goal after all, so I’m working towards pumping out more results 

Have a productive and great week ahead, thanks for stopping by
