Words of Wisdom

The Victor Poet: C.W. Longenecker  If you think you are beaten, you are.If you think you dare not, you don’tIf you like to win but think you can’t,It’s almost a cinch you won’t. If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.For out in the world we find Success begins with a fellow’s willIt’s all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are.You’ve got to think high to rise.You’ve got to be sure of yourself beforeYou can ever win the prize. Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger or faster man.But sooner or later, the man who winsIs the man who thinks he can.

the power of a kind word

source After last weeks minor blip when I felt really blue, and my gremlins were shouting very loudly, I’ve been making extra effort to be kind to myself. To speak kindly to myself, to not compare myself with others, to not put crazy expectations on myself. It’s not easy to do all of that some days. I’ve found myself surfing late at night or early in the morning, looking through blogs and etsy shops…. and comparing myself. Comparing myself unfavourably. “Why can’t I do ….” “Why am I not that good at…” “Why don’t I get that much done” “I wish I was her instead of me…” I’m trying to put a stop to that, harnessing the power of  a kind word, spoken deep in my soul. No more comparing myself. Asking why I don’t get as much done (creatively) as someone who has no children…. Asking why I’m not as good at something as someone who’s been doing it for years not months…. Wishing to be someone else when I AM ENOUGH Changing the words of my heart Being proud of what I HAVE achieved Seeing how much progress I’ve made in just  a few months Celebrating what I…

Living Life Your Way…. Interview with Goddess Leonie

I’ve been working hard the last few months at overcoming my fears and following my dreams. So I’m running a series of interview with inspiring people to see what part fear has played in their life and how they’ve overcome it to live life their way… This weeks interview is with Goddess Leonie Hi Leonie, tell us a little about yourself and your family. Why of coursicles! Here’s me in dot points: I’m totally in love with life. I see a goddess in every woman. I’m an artist, writer & goddess guide. And I help women to see what I see… the goddess inside them. Life is better when you know you are a goddess! I have an exquisite baby daughter, Ostara Faith Avalon. I am in love with a wise man who is also very hot. We live in my grandmother’s old cottage in tropical paradise. Have you always been self employed? And if not how did you make the change? I’m very blessed to have a job that is my dream come true, and also manages to support my wee family so that my love and I can stay at home with our daughter. I have been full…

A little bit of craftiness

 I’m back on a roll guys!! Yesterday was a GREAT day, I got loads done – finally found the energy and the motivation to do the housework, blitzed the whole place from top to bottom – it looks soooo much better now. If only it’d stay that way! We did some thrifting in town in the morning, and found a couple of bits but nothing great. Then I pulled out my sewing machine, dusted it off (!) and made myself a new top (out of an old pillowcase) I’m pretty pleased with the results – I’ll be making more I think. Looked to find some embellishments to brighten them up. I’ve just finished listing 8 x 6 prints in my etsy shop. Hopefully will get the 10 x 8’s listed this afternoon. I’ll be running a giveaway later on this week – so stay tuned :) And don’t forget to come back tomorrow to check out Goddess Leonie’s interview
