A little encouragement goes a long way.

Well the rat hole is now clean and lovely again. Well humble at it is, it mine. Proud of it even if it isn't fancy but it is a work room for crying out loud. LOL It is soooo functional now. Thank goodness. I didn't get to paint or make new curtains for it but hey that will come in two years when I do this again. LOL

My room being clean has calmed me and also risen a new sense of self awareness. Who am I ? What do I really want? I want to create art, I want to learn to paint and want to improve my current skills. I want a style of my own, unique to me that just makes ya go ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I love that! I want to teach, try new crafts and just discover myself/ art/ learning all over again.
My biggest problem is my additude about myself and my art. My family isn't always supportive in the verbal sense cause they don't get it. I don't hate them for it is just the way it is. Thank God I have some very good friends that do get it and they encourage me. I am not stating this for attention, I just feel that maybe some of you can relate.
I am very critical, over think things, and procrastinate getting things produced. I think I have great ideas but getting them to a finished product is the difficult part. I also always have something to throw a kink in my works and then I am down for the count so to speak.

So with that being said, I am going to TRY harder then EVER to turn over a new leaf. I am going to concentrate on the things I can do, learn, being possitive and keep going.
When cleaning my room I rediscovered my chalk board. Normally I write my deadlines on it. This time I decided to try something different. I wrote possitive thoughts on there instead. If I see that everyday for 21 days it will make a change. They say it takes 21 days to change a habit.
I thought I would share it. Maybe just maybe someone can relate and this will help them as well. I know I am basically rambling but ya never know when what comes out of your mouth( thoughts) can have a impact on someone's life. So this is my attempt to reach others just like me. If there is such a thing? LOL

I will finish loading up my pictures of my room later. Oh I can't wait to share that with you. I pulled some of the art I have from artists from ebay and wonderful gifts, so lots to peek at.
Have the most wonderful day and remember ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING>>>

Oh Pea, what a neat, neat post! I think many people can relate to your post...although maybe some will not admit it.

Love the chalkboard and your little list. I am one that can follow a list like that as well.

Now, you can come and clean my back porch, where I keep all of my supplies and what-nots.

Have a good one.
