Cue the music…
Fan or no fan of Madonna, you have to admire the fact that she has held on tight to her career. I mean she’s all B**ch I’m Madonna with confidence and dancing better than some of those kids with her 56 year-old self. I’m 34 and I’m not sure you’ll see me dancing down a hall with 20-somethings singing “B**tch I’m Dean!” But that’s just it, Madonna demands that, she has absolutely no problem saying what she wants. She’s a go-getter.
Sometimes, I say what I want. Sometimes, I’m heard, and sometimes I’m not. And if I want to be heard should I repeat myself? I hate repeating myself, I just repeated myself. I’m sure I’ve said that same phrase in the past 10 days at least 4 times. So why not repeat myself once more…
This January I chose some words, I said I wanted to do all these things, do you remember? No? Okay, I’ll say it again, because if I keep saying it maybe I’ll do better.
I said I would create, and I have. I have been art journaling, hand lettering, coloring, and there’s been a touch of hot glue. My creations have also come in the form of blog posts, free writing, and my prompt book. However, I want to take my writing to the next level- I need to focus more on that. (I’ll explain more under: brave)
I think I have opened up a lot more here and I consider that: brave. I have battled with hitting publish on some of my posts that seemed too personal, but I did it! This year I vowed to send out more of my writing, but that didn’t happen. I instead did something, which many may say was even more brave, I ditched freelance and homeschooled. I was not happy with the littles’ school. I had issues with the school, a teacher, and other various reasons.
I also cut my own hair, that’s brave, right?
I kind of touched on this last week. I’m trying to be patient with my new fight. No, I do not look like JLo…. yet! See, I kept it positive. Ahem.. moving on
There has been tons of love! I say a lot on this blog. I mean it all. I want to do better. I’m a work in progress. I will do better, I’ll keep working on my words figuratively and literally. I know what I want, and I’m done with the excuses. You’ll see 🙂
Share some creativity with us next week!
