Smoothies, Gregg Shorthand and ArtCardsUnited!

Happy Monday peoples!

I hope that you have a great week.

I have a few things to share with you this week!

It’s really been hot lately but here comes the sun, so I’m really not surprised. Still, do you need something to cool yourself off!?!?

If so why not try a smoothie!

Here’s one just for that! YUM!

Ingredients donated by Les Taylor

2 Cups Lemonade
2 mandarin oranges
1/2 cucumber
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp blueberry tea mix
2 tsp Coconut oil
2 Cups Kale
2 Cups Mixed fruit (frozen)

 

Blend and enjoy!

I also wanted to share with you all what I’ve made while on twitch this week!

I made a sketch of Claire who I featured in my last post as well.

 

As some who have been following me may know, I am not a portrait artist.

Still I wanted to try this. I am not sure if I will ink it or just leave it as is. What are your thoughts? Let me know here or private message me. I appreciate all comments and will get back to you as soon as possible.

This week I’m going to TRY sketching a photo that Marie Forleo posted of a flower!

Keep your eyes open for that one! I’m sure that those who follow me know how much I adore Marie Forleo!

That being so I follow her on Instagram and commented asking if I could sketch a picture she posted.

 I didn’t expect a answer!

Still, I got one!!! How awesome is that!!!? It totally blew me away.

To learn more about Marie Forleo go to: https://marieforleobschool.com/

To see Claires works go to:

https://www.twitch.tv/claireabelle

Feel free to make any suggestions as well.

I am not one to believe that I know everything and would love any help in this area.

Some who have been following me may know that I’ve also been working on ACEOs!

  ACEOs or Art, Cards, Edition and Originals are 2.5″ X 3.5″

I’ve decided to go back to calling my cards ACEOs as ArtCards implies different sizes, etc. Although I absolutely don’t mind different sizes. I own ArtCardsUnited, which has one rule, that rule is size. I can’t use the term artcard if it will imply that we don’t have that rule. I don’t want anyone to get confused by my actions.

It’s very important to me that everyone know ArtCardsUnited does not judge based on who sells, who trades, religions, sexual orientations, race, or disability. If you wish to learn more about ArtCardsUnited visit: https://artcardsunited.com/

     If you have any suggestions for ArtCardsUnited please contact me at acu@angelasartarea.com

Here are a couple banners that I made based on them.

Please feel free to let me know what you think!

They also feature Gregg Shorthand leave me a message here or privately to guess what they may say!

Keep a eye out!

I will be posting the answers in my next post.

Here we go though…

Hints: This has three words. All three can be found in the writing above.

Here is the other one.

I actually thought that I had written a different word in this one.

Still, the actual word fit perfectly, so I left it as is.

Hint: This one is two words and can be found in this writing.

Both are on recycled paper and 2.5” X 3.5”

Father’s Day, Story, and sketches!

Hey peoples!

Time really goes by fast doesn’t it!?

When I was younger it did not go by fast enough.

Times certainly change though as now time seems to fly by!

That brings me to this weeks smoothie!

Why you ask?

Well, when I was younger my mothers friend Karen Calkins made me things to wear.

In the 1980’s, the strawberry shortcake line became huge!

 Strawberry Shortcake was done in 1979 by Muriel Fahrion during her time as a greeting card illustrator.

Karen made me a strawberry shortcake outfit because I loved it so much!

I think of Karen now everytime I see strawberries, so I wanted to make a smoothie to say thanks.

Karen’s strawberry delight

2 Cups Almond Milk
2 Cups strawberries (frozen)
2 tsp blueberry tea mix (blood sugar maintenance)
3 Medjool dates
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
1 Cup Spinach

As I’m sure you know if you’ve been following me. I absolutely love to share other artist’s work and add to the artworld!

I’ve been astounded by a young artist named Claire.

Claire’s latest project is sketching eyes! Send her a picture of your eyes and she’ll sketch one.

I did just that and she made this…

Which I truly believe is astounding!

I do sketch people sometimes. My latest sketch just for fun is shown here.

 

I was working on shading, but am nowhere as good as Claire!

Just look at that eye! You can tell that it’s my eye and it’s just one eye!

Anyway, send in your eye if you would like her to sketch it for you. Her contact info. can be found at: www.twitch.tv/claireabelle

If you’ve been keeping an eye on my channels, etc. You have probably seen the making of many other works. That sketch was one of course. I couldn’t add them all here though or this post would never end!

Here is a collage of what I’m working on at the moment.

 Please note that these are unfinished.

Both on recycled paper and 2.5” X 3.5”

Speaking of father’s day. I want to share a photo to celebrate mine.

Tonys, Smoothies and Visual art!

Hey peoples!

WOW!

I can’t believe that a week went by so fast!

I made myself stream and it helped to make me feel better!

This is a collage of the artcards that I made!

I had to share with you all.

I was inspired to add green into my works by a friend of mine,Labhra Blaith.

What a talented young lady! She mainly works in watercolour. You can visit her channel and learn more at:

https://www.twitch.tv/labhrablaith

The card with faces on it was inspired by the wonderful artwork on Katy Perry’s new album Witness.

You can see the making of these by watching the replay at:

www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

or visit me live!!

Wed. and Fri. 12-5

I don’t know about you but I watched the Tony Awards 2017 and absolutely loved it.

I loved that some spoke about off Broadway musicals and those who stand up for what is right because we all matter.

Although, I absolutely love art, I can’t skip my smoothie.

I could honestly go on and on about the Tony’s!

I love sharing my smoothies with you all though.

My smoothie this week is Orange Booster

4 Mandarin oranges

4 tsp Coconut Oil

2 tsp blueberry tea mix (blood sugar maintenance)

1 tsp Cacao Powder

1 tsp Chia Seeds

1 tsp Sesame Seeds

1 tsp Raw Cane Sugar

1 Apple

2 bananas (frozen)

I also wanted to share Kayla  Marianna’s work with you all.

Kayla is yet another talented young lady who I found on twitch.

You can see more of her works at:

https://www.instagram.com/marianna.art96/

I challenged her to create a character and she did so, then named it after me!

I’ve never had my hair like that, even when it was long, but other than that she did rather well.

I have to admit that if a character were to be more like me; it would have short hair with extra eyes or something. Tim Burton style but I have always loved Disney too.

What a honour to have a character named after you!!

Thank you again Kayla!

I hope that you all have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Please remember I will be on twitch live at www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Wed. and Fri. from 12-5

New times I know!

I always stay on late though, so I figured why not change the times?

Namaste,

Angela

Weekly Smoothie and working with friends.

Hey peoples!

Long time no post!! I hope that all is well.

I’m sure you’re asking what I have been up to.

I had to take a small break due to treatment for my jaw. You may have seen a notice for it on most of my accounts, but just in case you didn’t. I wanted to remind you all.

It is going well though. I will be streaming again this Wed. if all continues to go as it has!

My smoothie this week is Green Delight

2 bananas (Frozen)

4 Mandarin oranges

1 cup kale

½ tsp cinnamon

7 cubes Cantaloupe

2 celery stalks

½ tsp orange extract

Suggestion: Always put your blender together properly and clean.

Hate cleaning? I can relate! After awhile it’s just became habit.

I also started on a sketch that I wanted to share.

I haven’t finished it of course and don’t like what I have so far.

Due to that, I don’t know if I should do it again or what?

I’m very critical of my work, but a friend Karen Phillips posted a photo that made me want to sketch when I saw it. What do you guys think?

Anyway, Karen Phillips is a wonderful artist! You all should check out her art at karenphillipsart.com She’s an amazing artist!

I had the pleasure of meeting Karen while in one of Casey Klahn’s classes.

Casey teaches oil painting. He’s yet another outstanding artist. You can see more of his work at: http://thecolorist.blogspot.com/

I met him years ago on my blog! He was

I have to share a photo from it.

If I finish this one, I’ll be sure to post it!

I also posted a picture wearing a red nose in support of REDNOSEDAYUSA.ORG to see it go to my Instagram account at: https://www.instagram.com/angelasartarea/ You can also call: call 1-800-500-4373

Well that’s all folks, short and sweet. I will be on stream if feeling ok Wed. 12-3! I hope to you there.

Namaste,

Angela

Mixed Ambrosia smoothie and art!

Hey peoples!

I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and have an outstanding week!

If you are new visiting here, welcome!

I believe that everything happens for a reason, including your finding me!

I’m so glad that you’re here! Feel free to ask me any questions either leave me a message here or send your questions to: info@angelasartarea.com I will get back to you as soon as possible.

 I hope that you enjoy this blog and come back.

Many of you have commented about my smoothies.

Thank you as I love to create awareness that helps others! Knowing that I have done so always warms my heart and makes me smile!

Someone asked on instagram if the smoothies that I make are meal replacements.

To answer that question in more detail I’ll write here so others may see it, and learn from it as well.

I drink smoothies for breakfast; some smoothies only create enough for one tall glass. While other’s leave enough for extra! I love those because they leave enough for another smoothie during the day to boost my energy.

The smoothie that I will share today made around 5cups. Its gives the taste of ambrosia as my family made that for years and really YUM! That taste makes me happy! I truly hope that you like it.

Mixed Ambrosia

4 mandarin oranges
2 bananas (frozen)
1/2 cup coconut
4 tsp Coconut oil
2 tsp Coconut extract
1 cup kale
2 celery stalks
2 Medjool dates
1 tsp blueberry tea mix (blood sugar maintenance)

You’ll notice that I added in kale and celery. I was rather nervous about that as I thought it would take the taste away, but it didn’t!

 I received all the nutrition needed for the day while having something that reminded me of family history!

Those who follow me probably notice that I usually add kale, celery or cucumbers to my smoothies. You don’t always have to do this and it doesn’t mean that every smoothie will actually be green. It will have what you need in it though and will most likely help you to feel better!

Please remember when making smoothies that they are not juices.

Due to that, your blender will need you to add things that can make juice so that the items added will blend correctly. Only add the other ingredients after having some sort of liquid first. If needed add almond milk! Also, I highly suggest always keeping your blender clean.

 I know Ugggg! Cleaning…who likes it right!?

Kris Carr posted something about cleaning in the past. I absolutely love Kris Carr and highly recommend her.

Kris Carr is one of the New York Times best-selling authors who teaches everything needed for healthy living! You can read more about her at: http://kriscarr.com/

My interest in smoothies came from Kris Carr, which those that follow me most likely know.

 I’m not shy about it.

Anyway that question made me think, because I believe helpings really depend on what fills you up, and that depends on where your body is when it comes to food.

Food to me is a form of medication that being so it’s exactly like each medical case. A doctor can’t properly diagnose a patient without the patients’ individual information because each case is different. I believe like Kris Carr that a Vegan lifestyle is best for your health, but only you know what portions your body is ready for.

As many of you know I also create visual art, which I love to do!

I’ve been working on cards dedicated to a friend of mine Kayla.

As some know I also love music, I just tend to stay on the visual art side of things.

To listen to Kayla’s music go to:   https://soundcloud.com/kayladahlofficial

This is a collage that I made to show you all the cards I have worked on lately.

I didn’t like the first work, because you can’t see the L in her name. Her name doesn’t pop enough for me, so I made another work.

A friend of mine that I met on twitch suggested I print out the name instead of using a stencil.

Seeing as how everything doesn’t have to be perfect, I figured why not!?

I was nervous so, my hands got shaky as you can see by looking at it, but it’s alright I guess…what are your thoughts!?

I think that I’ll get better over time, so thanks for talking me into that. 🙂

To see the making of these cards go to: www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

You can watch the replays there!

You can also come and watch me create live Wed & Fri from 12-3.

 Hope to see you there!

Namaste

Angela

Happy Mothers Day, art and smoothies!

Hey peoples!

Happy Mother’s Day after Mother’s Day!

I hope that you had a great one celebrating all of the strong females in your life.

I made this collage of sketches that my grandmother made to share with you!

Nathalie I. MCGRIFF
1926–2015

Even though we lost my grandmother in 2015, it feels as if she is with me.

I have prints of her paintings. This is one of them.

I truly hope that I make her proud.

I also wanted to share this photo to wish my mother a happy mothers day.

I’ve talked a bit about my going live at: www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

I’m on Wed and Fri 12-3

I love, respect and admire  all of my a TV friends though.Just to be clear both my live tv friends and acting/reporting/etc. friends.I believe that live tv isn’t the same as tv shows, the news, movies, etc. In my book, I believe each takes courage and that is commendable though.
Please don’t ever doubt that!

Just to be clear, I believe that those borne in this time are blessed. What comes easily to those today did not come so easily for actors, singers, etc. years ago.   You can seriously just get on facebook and go live to everyone! They did not have that option years ago. It’s astounding to me that people will be borne into this technology!

 I applaud those who worked to get where they are and honestly a part of me feels unworthy. I know that I am not unworthy, but I can’t help wondering what I did to deserve all of the options given today.

If you haven’t visited my channel you haven’t seen my cards so here they are!

To see the making of them visit my channel at: www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea  and watch the replays.

which I will be talking more about when I’m live.

My scanner is not working at the moment. That’s why I’m just taking pictures like this to share.

Lastly, I know that you all put have been commenting about my posting about smoothies. I absolutely love smoothies. If you’ve been keeping track on my fan page, Instagram or twitter pages, you’ve probably noticed my having a smoothie a day.

Berry Surprised!

This is yet another one I made!

  • 2Cups blackberries (frozen)
  • 1 cup spinach

A new week!!!

Hey peoples!

I can’t believe that it’s the 8th already! Time really seems to be flying by! As some of you know I’ve been having smoothies daily. They give me energy and YUM!

Don’t know how to eat healthy or fix a smoothie!? I highly suggest Kris Carr’s book  Crazysexyjuice! It will teach you all that you need to know.

Smoothies and healthy eating will help give you energy.

Here is a collage I made of some smoothies from Kris Carr’s Crazysexyjuice.

 

This is one that I made on my own.

Raspberries-frozen
Blueberries-frozen
2 Silk yogurts
1 Orange (peeled)
2 Medjool dates
2 Cups almond milk
1tsp Flaxseeds

Yum! I love my smoothies.

I also love my art. That being so, I’ve started creating again. If you haven’t been following my posts, I’ve gone live!

Visit me at: www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea
I’m going live to overcome my anxiety about it. Being on TV is not the same as creating live.

I love, respect and admire my a TV friends though.
Please don’t ever doubt that!
Many people have said going live is exactly how they overcame anxiety.
I’m on Wed and Fri 12-3

I also wanted to share a new card that I made!

Size: 2.5″ x 3.5″
Made on recycled paper.

 

Inspired by: Paula Manning-Lewis
and Nina Huang Art!

Check out Nina’s channel at: www.twitch.tv/ninahuangstudio

Check out Paula’s work at: www.paulamanninglewis.com

I hope that you all have a great weekend. More cards to come!!!

As many of you know I’ve done this FOREVER! Someone inspires me and I create a work to dedicate it to them, etc. I’ve always been like that.

That’s basically what others do when they make portraits, etc. I’ve done that as well, but tend to stick to the abstract side right now. As nobody can complain about their nose being to big, etc. in abstracts.

Anyway, don’t forget to visit me at: www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Wed & Fri 12-3

I’ll see ya there! 🙂

Until next time…

Namaste,

Angela

P.S. Please know that I will bring ArtCardsUnited back in time. It is never far from my thoughts though.

It’s May!

It’s May peoples!!! 🙂

I have alot of wonderful things to share this month.

As many of you know I’ve been having issues off and on for years with my jaw.

My Jaw specialist was rather rude to me after having gotten my hopes up that he would give me the treatment needed.

All he seemed interested in was the rash on my face.

Then let me know that he wouldn’t treat me due to it!

He looked like an actor trying not to laugh when I got upset, so I just grabbed my things and left as that’s very unprofessional of him.

That being so, I was understandably upset and had a seizure while trying to get what was needed for my smoothies.

Many people know that one of the leading causes to most medical conditions is stress.

I truly hope that he finds the light that he needs to find within himself so he will not harm others in that way.

I knew that my smoothies were a form of medication as well though.

  I also knew that I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from getting what was needed for that medication.

In my opinion eating a smoothie a day and sharing it on social media helps create awareness of healthy eating that Savannah,Ga. and many areas are in need of.

I hadn’t thought of the fact that I hadn’t been taking my Cannabis Oil for a few days because I ran out! I actually hadn’t had a non-epileptic seizure after taking Cannabis Oil. My doctor was kind enough to remind me of that though, which absolutely blew my mind!

Even my complex-partial seizures at night have gone away as I haven’t had one in two months!

My body gets extremely tired, but I get the energy needed from smoothies!

 Kris Carr is hugely inspirational to me.

Kris Carr is a cancer survivor who has found healthy eating along with a healthy lifestyle to be very helpful. You can learn more about her story of surviving, smoothie recipes, etc. at KrisCarr.com

I started creating again after watching Before The Flood and seeing the meanings that can be found in my works. I highly recommend it.

Inspired by: Before the flood
Dedicated to: Leonardo DiCaprio

I found this old painting that I did years ago, and posted it.

It was just painted really fast on an extra piece of canvas when I was creating my own canvases. I miss that.

I wanted to share it because it shows where we are and where we will be.

I say WILL, not because I believe that I have the gift of knowing the future, but because I truly believe that there is more harm in NOT believing then in believing.

People need to truly believe before they will save this planet.
This was painted years ago, when I was unable to think clearly. Oddly, when I have not been able to think clearly the unknown has been known to step in.
When I could think better, I realised its meaning.

The first earth is years ago.

The two in the middle stand for the earth today and how it will be while those who are alive today are living here.

The last earth stands for how it will be when everyone starts treating the earth better.

 I truly believe that we can heal this world, but that everyone has to believe it too in order to save it.

Think about it, people have to believe in themselves before they actually take care of themselves and live. I had to believe in myself before I could make the wonderful Kris Carr’s smoothies that help give me energy.

We are examples of how this earth needs us to believe in it.

Good needs us to believe in it. People need more good.

We are on our way and we’ll make it. Don’t ever doubt that. We may not be here to see every wonderful thing that comes from making this world great, but don’t doubt that we can do it.

Don’t plant doubt in peoples minds that won’t get them to try.

 Plant hope,

Plant knowing,

Plant a future.

Due to that I have started creating again and stream each week!

Come and watch me draw at www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea
Wed- 12-2
Fri- 12-2
Please note date and times may change from time to time.

Last week, I created a 2.5″ X 3.5″ work creating awareness for the blind, epilepsy, autism, recycling and women artists!
Watch the video to find out it’s meaning!! 😀
Swirls inspired by: Paula Manning-Lewis
Self-portrait inspired by: Casey Klahn
Recycling inspired by: Fine Art by Martha Marshall

I am unsure as to what I will draw this week, come on over and see at www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Lastly as many of you know I like to look at paintings, photography, etc. from other artist’s. It’s inspiring and puts a smile on my face.

A conversation started up after I saw meaning in one of my friends works, and I wanted to quote her. 🙂 I’m sure that many will find her words to be inspirational. 🙂 That being so, I leave you with them. 🙂

May you all have wonderful dreams!

New Hair cut, birthday and smoothies!

Hi everyone!

I hope that you’re having a wonderful week!

I just got some wonderful gifts from Lucia Stewart. Some of you may know her as the creator of Stressie. I love that character so and had to share this wonderful collage that I made to thank her! I hope that you all like it.

Another great gift that I got for my birthday was a haircut. My Aunt Sharon helped with this. <3  I wanted to share it as well! Here it is! It’s so much easier when it is this short! Also it’s perfect for this weather.

I went to 40 Volume Salon & Spa after seeing Shannon Kuanfung Zaller post about it.

Thanks Shannon!!! 🙂 <3

This is my hair dresser Lindsey KilPatrick from 40 Volume Salon & Spa!

She did an amazing job. I highly recommend her. 🙂

As some may know I’ve also been trying Kris Carr’s green smoothies! I’m in her challenge to have a green smoothie a day! Here’s a collage that I made of what I have so far. If you’ve been keeping track, you’ve seen my posts on each of them. 🙂

You can learn more at KrisCarr.com/greendrinkchallenge

I know what you’re thinking. I didn’t mix up the first one correctly right?

I’m still learning but it was still REALLY good!

Plus, I had a HUGE mess to clean up when starting this. When your smoothie goes everywhere ya figure out that you didn’t put the blender together correctly. Ha!

I forgot to tighten it the right way, but thank heavens I had my eyes open and stopped it in time!

Let’s just keep that one between you and I. 😉 I know that I can trust you. 🙂

These smoothies really make me feel great!  I know that I mention them alot in my posts but I have to thank Marie Forleo for introducing me to Kris Carr who has been absolutely wonderful in sharing healthy beneficial recipes in her books, etc.! I really can’t thank them enough!

  I’m not celebrating my birthday this year. After being called an ass by my own father, I don’t feel like going out to eat with him….such is life. Anyone else though, just let me know!

Either way,I think having a smoothie and my new hair cut will make my birthday the best one ever!

Have a wonderful week people! Off to yoga I go!!! 🙂

Namaste,

Angela

Passover, yoga and a story!

Hey everyone!!!

I hope that you had a Happy Passover and are having a Happy Easter. 🙂

Some people were asking about my yoga. I do yoga every morning and night or I try to anyway. 🙂 It helps me stretch and relax. I don’t do really HUGE yoga workouts; I just do what helps me to relax.

I also do not overdo it. You can feel all of your muscles in yoga and you learn about your body. Exactly where you are, etc. It’s amazing!

This is what I clean my yoga mat with. It’s very important to stay as sanitary as you can. Cleaning your mat once a week helps you to do that.

I use it on my pillows as well. What can I say? I’m a bit odd like that.

You all should check this out seriously! It’s a wonderful product! Go to:

                                             http://www.amazon.com/shops/ASUTRA

You won’t be sorry!

 

I want to share a story with you…

 I was at a store when it was implied that I am just learning yoga. The checker had a look as if to say I’ll believe that one when I see it.

A part of me knew that she was one of those people who let her concern turn into negative vibes.

There are people who are worse than I am. There are things that I can’t do, but I am blessed beyond words for the things that I can do.

I also can’t concentrate on what I can’t do. I can’t concentrate on my pain, etc.

I did for years and it just increased it. That turns people away and makes living extremely hard.

Many people wish to live in that negativity and I do not judge because life is hard.

I just do not wish to join anyone in negativity as it will only keep me from living a life of peace and love.

People seriously need to see how dangerous it is to help others dwell on the things they can’t do or the bad things in their life.

It’s like saying “Here ya don’t have a reason to give up. Let me share one with ya.”

People today need to think of what they can do, and the blessings in their life.

This is why I’m not shy about sharing my disability because I’ll remind them with a smile just how blessed they are.

Those who are disabled and those who aren’t should remember, because life should be cherished.

I mentioned that I do yoga every morning and night.  This is absolutely true because it helps me and I hope that my mentioning it helps others by getting them to practice yoga as well.

Yoga is the same as physical therapy, it’s just worded differently and more relaxing.

When you are in the physical health to feel good about yourself, you are less likely to be hurtful to others.

How do I know this? Well, I would know that because I went through physical therapy. As many of you know I’ve been in a wheelchair as my left side was temporarily paralyzed after brain surgery for epilepsy.

You can’t tell to look at me now, and I can choose not to write about it at all. I’ve thought about that because of all the judgment that I get based on my disability.  It honestly still tears at my heart, but I know now that it’s not my fault.

I know that if I hide that away, I am living a lie and not living being proud of who I am.

I am a disabled, bi, vegan, female, medical marijuana advocate and damn proud of it!

People do really small things like the checker that I mentioned. People take advantage of my kindness and assume that I don’t have a physical disability. People have done some really hateful things to me that I won’t really get into if not for one reason, it’s another though. I could go on and on. Why do that though, why let others hate overtake me and win!

Some wonder why they should help another person.

I think they should ask themselves if they want others to give up thinking nobody cares or if the fact that some don’t care in this world is enough motivation for them to prove that they do care.

The main thing is that bothers me a bit is I should have local friends who truly believe in my working for the arts by now.

Having the experience that I have, I shouldn’t only have to work for others in order for people to smile and be supportive.

It may be because I really stink at communication, but if that were the case people could get some guts and contact me. I don’t bite.

Either way thank you to those who have inspired me and helped me be who I am.

Nobody can honestly be an entrepreneur and not have not only alot of talent but know that ya win some, ya lose some. I was reminded of that today when watching a video of someone. Trust me too….you’ll lose alot! All along the way what will help is reminding yourself of your dream. Remind yourself of what it feels like when a part of your dream comes true.

In my case part of it is helping others with my art and I have to remind myself what that feels like. When someone lets me know that I have helped them by not giving up and inspired them to go on it blows my mind. It touches my heart so much there are simply no words. I can’t let one event, one bad moment stop that. If I do, I stop helping others.

I truly believe that we are all on this earth for a purpose.

As wonderful Marie Forleo says “Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams because the world needs that special gift that only you have.”

As Ellen DeGeneres says “Be Kind.”

Namaste
