“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
— Mandy Hale (The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
Trying to find inspiration. Or get the creative juices flowing. Mostly getting over the writer’s block. Mostly I think its in my head. My fears are holding me back.
- I am always afraid of failing.
- Its not good enough. It will never be good enough.
- being judged by what I write. (childhood issues)
Gah so much self pity!
Today I was feeling inspired to find a way bolster myself so my self-doubt wouldnt creep in.
Or the ugliness of writer’s block!
I decided to find crystals that will inspire me with my writing!

Can you answer these 13 personal questions about yourself without lying?
How do you hope to change as a person in the future? Being motivated. i want to be more goal oriented.
What keeps you up at night? The world. How can we as people keep hurting each other. We are supposed to be accepting of each other. We are supposed to love one another. Yet we do everything we can to destroy any prospect of peace because we want oil, land and money. and we want more. always more. How about we work on acceptance, love, peace and not greed?
What’s the most surprising self-realization you’ve had? That its ok not to be perfect and its ok not to sweat the small stuff.
What lie do you tell most often? That I’m ok. That I am fine. And I am happy.
What do you regret not doing? Going on an adventure. well I went to California. But I want to explore!
What do you most often look down on people for? For not being grateful for what they have. They complain about not having this when they wanted that! well, do you have a job? Do you have money to enjoy the things you want? Do you have food to eat and sleep in a comfy bed? Of course, you do! but others don’t, so stop being a bitch and be grateful!
What do you think people look down on you for the most? probably my no-nonsense attitude, sure I am funny and crazy, but I do not put up with bullshit.
What gives your life meaning? my faith
What bridges do you not regret burning? negative nancies.
What are you most insecure about? My body
How do you get in the way of your own success? I don’t go for it I stay in the same place because I’m scared
Whats one thing you really wish you could go back and undo? who knows
What are you afraid people see when they look at you? I dont want to be a horrible person in their eyes. That I am mean controlling rude. I want to be the kind person who brings a smile to someone’s face.
I didn’t know whether to shake my head, giggle or wince.
Women are beautiful and smart. Some women choose not to use their intellect because they have found some men are intimidated by their intelligence more so than their looks.
It shouldn’t have to matter. Women shouldn’t have to dumb down themselves to be appreciated, attractive or accepted.
Because being playing dumb is neither cute nor adorable, its tiresome. Nobody has time for that kind of mind game!
Enjoying a bubble bath
don’t want to return to reality
and I have to remember not to fall asleep 😴 😂
When I was younger my obsession and fascination with books would overwhelm me.
i loved it.
I had to like every kind food the character ate, the colours they wore etc. If they were a scientist I had to learn what Quantum Physics was. Drove my parents nuts because I was always at the library, in a book I wouldn’t emerge for anything except food.
-remembering why I love:
strawberry jam on my eggs
the color cranberry and burgundy
quantum physics and chaos theory
amber and decorated glass bottles
sunsets and anklets with bells
