Create not Hate

Standard

Yesterday after work I went to pick up some supplies to paint some items for a friend.  I went to Hobby Lobby and man was it windy!  I practically got blown over!  Well, I was only in there for maybe 20 minutes and when I got out to the car I about had a heart attack!  There was a huge white paint mark on my beautiful blue bug!!!

See what I am talking about?

HOW RUDE!  There was no note.  No sign of anyone trying to admit…ugh.  Rude people!  I was venting to a friend last night about it.  He decided that rude people had no place.  I told him that I couldn’t be mad because it probably was an accident really…and  they only make me write more creatively!  It works really to my advantage.  🙂   Create not hate.  There is no reason to hate.  It pulls you down to their level and  it actually makes people more mad when you don’t react!  Think of that one!

Next, instead of getting angry with anything or anyone, I peacefully sat for an hour in quiet time then took it all out on the canvas’.   I was in one of those empowerment moods.  I just pushed out two really cool concepts on them.  Here was my criteria: something to match a sage green, blue and light brown comforter, chocolate brown walls, and something outdoorsy.  YEAH, that is a crazy combo.  But, I think I did well with 2 out of 3 for now!  There was not much guidance or anything on this project so bear with me…they are not quite finished but close!

 

This will be the center frame 🙂

This is “The Owl” that will be on the far left hand side when looking at the wall…

There will be another blue frame on the right hand side but, I am redoing that this evening.  I am super excited!

I have felt so empowered lately.  I have felt more like I am finding what makes me feel like myself.  I am learning how to bloom and figure it out!  Friends that are there to help you along the way…so life is good!  Maybe tomorrow if your lucky, I will share with you a secret!  You will just have to stay tuned for you never know what is in store in the life of a little CatMan.  😉

Throw me a floaty!

Sometimes when we are drowning, we reach out to whatever we can get our hands on to help pull us back up.  For a lot of people, there are so many things that we take personally or to heart.  They aren’t meant to be like that.  But, as humans we can sometimes take ourselves too seriously or forget who we are in the process of figuring out where we are going next.  We are emotional creatures, duh!  For me personally, I am trying to find a balance between figuring out things on my own and depending on others.

I like to learn from others so that way I can make a reflection and apply something from their experience in my own.  This is how I have developed my perceptions.  This too keeps me emotionally protected.  I too am an observer.  I, much like a camera, love to capture the real perception of what or who the subject is.  The truth and beauty of it.  Now, I not so much like the camera, enjoy seeking out what makes my subject really tick.  I am enthralled with digging deep into a person to figure out why they do something or  why they think or perceive the way they do.  There are sometimes however, I must say I have to go with my gut and steer clear from the subject.  Usually they have some emotional negatives attached that I could so easily pick up and frankly I don’t want it!  I have enough of my crap not to worry about other people’s stuff!

As emotional creatures, human beings pick up emotional trash from others.  I like to explain it like a person with tons of strings attached and at the ends of the strings are these tin cans that just follow you where ever you go.  If we don’t let go and cut the strings they just get everything all jumbled and create a mess!  Right now, I am learning to cut those unhealthy strings and move on.  The issue is there is always a scar; so no matter how much you want to forget it, leave it behind there will always be a footprint behind!  How do you forget an emotion?  Yeah, if you find out how, let me know!

Last night I was talked through a panic attack, got to speak with a dear friend who too is swamped in her own life, and hung out with a friend who fed and gave me an amazing embrace.  People so severely take hugs for granted.  A hug was just what I needed to get through my yesterday.  Now I sit with my Jamie Cullum station (oh man that guy just is so sexy!) and am finally relaxed and at peace!  And no, I didn’t dream I wet my pants like I did the night before but, I did throw my scissors out in the hallway this morning.  🙂  If your lucky, maybe I will tell you the story behind it….stay tuned!

Does it seem like scissors are a theme here??  😉

Which one can you relate to?
