3-28-17 Creativity? Levels Unlocked! 

Feeling stagnant? Feeling like your brain has been running on autopilot for a while? Time to wake it up! Do something creative, even if you’ve never done anything creative in your life. Creativity, and the act of creating, unlocks powerful levels in mind, body, heart, and spirit. It is most definitely a part of self care, self development, and self awareness. It creates a positive ripple effect within you that can ripple out toward others. Being creative can be healing. 

Not sure how to be creative? Take a painting class, write a poem, watch some Bob Ross and experiment on your own, cut up pictures from magazines and put them back together in your own way and create a collage. Write a story. Look up a DIY project (Pinterest!), learn how to make jewelry or how to work with wood. Take your camera somewhere and start taking beautiful pictures. Learn how to play an instrument. Anything you’ve ever thought might be fun to try one day, try it now. Your inner child will thank you. 

I will be creating some painting vids soon at The Drawlers channel so stay tuned!

3-18-17 Stop

Sometimes the best thing you can do for your mental health is just stop and rest. To try to force anything during that time causes more breaks in the defenses. Not my best day but feeling better now. Tomorrow will be better. Time to relax, reset, and pray clearly with my heart while my mind sorts itself out. Be thankful for those who love you enough to allow you to do this and support you during this time.

3-14-17 Coffee and Nature

Like many Americans, I start my day with a cup of coffee. Depending on how sleepy I am, I’ll either make my usual cup, or I’ll go to the local Starbucks and get something with a little (or a lot) more kick in it. But here’s something I’ve found about coffee or caffeine (green tea works wonders as well); once it takes effect, it is best to connect to something outside of just sitting in one place and working. Best thing to be able to explore after a cup of coffee is nature, the outdoors, even if that means just a quick walk on your street or a couple of stretches in your backyard. Just to breathe some fresh air, and if possible, refresh your vision with some greenery, even if it is just a potted plant outside your windowsill. It is instant mind, body, and spirit reset. Afterward, you can go about your day, and work as usual. I highly recommend making that connection with nature while you are experiencing the effects of caffeine as opposed to just coffee and straight to work, without heightening your senses and reconnecting to the roots of being human.

Costco $50 Cash Card Giveaway!

Good morning everyone! Today I am hosting a giveaway for a $50 Costco Cash Card!

CostcoCashCard

I feel honored to have been a part of this Huggies campaign and really happy to have sampled such a great product. The Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers were probably the most secure and absorbent diapers I’ve ever tried on my son (and believe me, I’ve tried many different brands!) and it’s such a great deal to get these at $6 OFF right now at Costco! The Huggies Natural Care® Plus Wipes were also a wonderful product, especially since my son has sensitive skin. I’m very selective with the wipes I use. After all, they are used on the most sensitive areas! These did not disappoint. Right now, you can get them at Costco for $5 OFF.
