I believe that positivity begets positivity and all that shit.
When things start to go wrong around me, I blame my lack of attention to positive thinking.
Which, I guess me blaming me for a negative attitude is kind of the opposite of the point.
While I was sleeping last night, I must have been extra hard on myself because after waking up 15 minutes late, forgetting to hit the “on” switch for my coffee, DirecTV being shut off for non-payment, and then finally my credit card number being stolen that ended in my whole account being drained, I now need the entire mother fucking chorus of The Sound of Music to bring me up to a pleasing disposition.
That whole Golden Rule thing works on yourself, too, yo.
And this is when I thank the Baby Jeebus, Oprah, and Zoloft for working their magic on my happy and keeping me from quitting today. If I’d quit on today, I wouldn’t have signed a new work client, seen the blue sky, been kissed by my wiener, and found these books that I ordered.
Also, thank Baby Jeebus and Oprah for Amazon Affiliate money ’cause mama ain’t got no money in the bank now thanks to some jackhole buying a train ticket in England with my debit card.
I’m a super non-artsy person. The only creative part of me involves thinking of excuses for not cleaning and coming up with topical Tweets during a live broadcast.
I’ve seen these books before and admired the person who can keep up with them, and today I made the commitment to actually use them for me. Rarely do I buy things for myself, unless it’s a bowl of nachos or a “Yay Cleavage” shirt, so I figured after the day I’ve had, I deserve Keri Smith’s Wreck This Box books for me.
To some, it may seem like a small feat to set a goal and keep up with it. But for me, the girl who has no idea what lives at the bottom of the laundry pile, sticking with a personal goal will be triumphant.
I’m setting the goal to open my
Lady Flower creative mind.
It’s time to color outside the lines and teach myself that creativity is not about perfection. Not everyone is an artist, especially not me.
If I stick with it, I want you all to pat me on the back and tell me how pretty I’ve become since completing a goal.
If I don’t stick with it, just like me cleaning the shower, this never happened.
And if you’re super lucky, I’ll scan some of what I do in the books and show off my hard-earned
Lady Flower creative mind openings.
