I would very much appreciate them to hire someone to select different movies seeing as how there are half a million Halloween movies. There are as many children’s movies as there are scary as shit adult movies. Like what happened to them playing Casper? Alice in Wonderland is most definitely NOT a Halloween movie along with Men in Black, Monsters, Inc and Monsters University. They could play Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Monster House… I could go on but I am still excited to see Sleepy Hollow because that is the only one of these movies that I do not physically own. I believe I found myself feeling the same way last year… maybe I should write them a letter? LOL.

HAPPY SPOOKY SEASON YALL!

Build Yourself Back Up When It’s All Falling Down…

What do you do when you find something you are good at and put your all into it and spend so much money to see it prosper and work so hard to see it grown and set a date to put your hard work on display for everybody and price it too low because what it is really worth… nobody would pay because we are all cheap asses. Then the day comes and you spent even more time and money to make displays and set up and even be there in the first place and… nobody wants to pay the lower prices either and you totally bomb. Your confidence that you barely had to start with is crushed, your time and money wasted… everything is in bins and piles in your garage and you are back to square one. Still stuck in a dead end job that is getting you nowhere and making you absolutely miserable, no step closer to moving forward in your life, and still no escape route.

 

Does anybody have an answer to this? LOL. Sadly, this is my life. I am in this place in my life. I built what I thought was going to be a lucrative and fun business and it has blown up in my face like a volcano. I spent so much time buying fabric and ribbon and thread and everything that goes with it and display stuff and I sold three bows and three bibs and two outfits out of the 100s I have made and all the stuff is sitting in my garage.. wasting space along with all the other stuff that it wasted. I wish I could say that my life was put together and that I had all the answers and all the ingredients to the recipes but in the long run, I am running short on my life goals.

I decided to finally (after almost a year) sit down and take pictures of every bib I made and upload them to the etsy store that I created so long ago that sat empty in preparation for this sale that bombed so hard. Long story short I am trying to make lemonade out of lemons. The goal for this blog after all is to help me sell my crafts and such so that I can quit this job and still bring in the income that I need to keep my family afloat. The moral of this sob story is that even when you have your heart broken and dreams crushed, you have only failed if you stop trying. Do you think that Rome was built in a day? Do you think that the first person who decided to take power got everyone to follow them the moment he decided that he was going to be a leader? Do you think that the first time you try something it is guaranteed to be a success? Absolutely NOT!

Not only does this apply to my business venture and the fact that Tuesday is the motivational day of the week for me, it applies to anything in life. When it all falls down, take a moment to assess the damage and build it back up. It took me over a year to actually add items to the etsy shop that I created which you can find HERE. Things will eventually get better. I dont care what religion you actually practice… we each have a God figure. You will never be given more than you can handle. Your time in the spotlight will come which is why it is always important to never give up when things get hard. I have found a photo that matches this situation perfectly and it always had a place in the back of my mind when I am going through something troubling.

Three-feet-from-gold

The man on the bottom of this photo is over worked and tired of trying. He literally has to hack away at the wall for like 5 more minutes and the diamonds will come tumbling down on his head yet he has given up because it was hard. The man on the top is clearly determined and is so far but so close with no end in sight… he will be the one to reach success. The man on the bottom will continue all his life in this pattern where he begins something and then gives up when it gets hard OR he will never begin anything again for fear of defeat AGAIN. Little does he know that he was his own saboteur.

Remember this photo next time you are feeling down. Every day when I go to work after being passed over for two promotions.. and other lengthy drama-like details, I think of this picture. Maybe my time with the diamonds is coming? You should think of life this way too.. I promise it will make you feel so much better to wake up with good thoughts on your mind even if your day goes sour afterwards. You will be more tempted to make positive choices and decisions to lead you in a better direction.

 

Have a good night! See you soon!! ❤

Kick it into high gear….

This is Jaylen… you have seen him here before. On this day in the photo he was lucky enough to receive his yellow belt in tae kwon do after testing and all his hard work. Let’s talk a little more about that…

Jaylen was diagnosed with ADHD. He had been labeled a problem student by his previous school and he would come home and be so depressed about being in trouble because of school no matter how hard he was trying to pay attention or focus etc and he was getting nowhere. I moved his school, i got him medication (if you dont think that was right i dont care), and we enrolled him in tae kwon do. This has honestly been the best thing i have ever done for him in my efforts to help. He is learning to be better disciplined without constant at home punishment, he is learning self defense, he is learning teamwork, he has more confidence in himself, and he has been more outgoing ever since. Tiger Kim’s has been a great thing for him.
I know that it can be pricey, but i want you to think about it. You spend money on fast food, starbucks, movies, music, shopoing, makeup and whatever else. Why not invest in your child’s future. They can go on to have a career in this field, they can possibly work at the school they train in, they could have a career in mixed martial arts upon further training… the possibilities are endless. The best thing outside of all of that is that he is learning all the other things above before before these options here in this paragraph can take place. I am proud of my boy!
