Anxiety, you motha shut yo'mouth!

I haven't been here in a little bit.  I'm not happy about that.  To be honest, I've just been overwhelmed.  From the holidays yes, like most people, but also with life.  By no means is it of serious nature, but I have found myself struggling with anxiety like no other.  Apparently, I manifest stress and angst physically more than I ever have and the outcome is lack of motivation for creative expression.  A bit backwards, no?  Creative expression is linked to numerous studies/reports proving that it helps eliminate anxiety.

For some reason, I have chosen to worry about anything I can get my mind hands on the last few months more than ever.  Health, ambitions, how life plays out-all of it worries me.  I've let my mind become overtaken being a worry rat versus putting that energy towards positive output.  Mind you, I've been blessed with good health and happy check ups, my professional ambitions are at all new heights, and when I push away negative thinking and just be, I appreciate the life in front of me instead of fretting what if's.

I have to snap the angst gone.  It leaves with 2015.  I am a creative, I am never happier than when a project comes to life.  So no fancy resolutions here.  Just good old fashioned getting back to it and giving my blog the love and attention I deserve to give it.  It's good for me.

After all, it's best all around when I'm wheeling and dealing and doing.  Happy 2016, friends.  As the wise Kevin Gnapoor from Mean Girls once said: let's do the damn thang.

Let's meet again,

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me
