So , why Jolly? Well, it’s definitely a Christmas-y themed word. But I don’t mean “Ho ho ho” Jolly (I just wanted to draw Santa), I mean the kind of Jolly that makes you feel all warm and loved inside. Still not with me? Okay, close your eyes and think of something, someone, or some act that brings you pure joy at first thought… You feel that? Yep, nice and Jolly. 😆
🎄❤️ Today’s Affirmation : Today, I Am Jolly🎄❤️
Choose happiness over irritation today. Choose Joy over anger – even when you get cut off in traffic. No need to take that personally. Some people are just born jerks. That doesn’t mean you have to be and it definitely doesn’t mean it has to ruin your whole day. So, remember this one for today or feel free to share your own Affirmation for today in the comments. Light and live, TGIF! ❤️
So, I think Wednesdays are officially including mailing out orders and coupon clipping. 😑 It’s unavoidable. Lol. I know I’m not the only mom who may or may not leave a pile of coupons sitting. Sometimes, too long…. That’s a habit I’m trying to break. Im forever grateful for every order to fill and coupon to clip. Without the coupons, there’s no savings. And without my friends, customers, and clients, my business would still just be Wishful thinking. I won’t bicker over the time it takes to clip these stupid coupons, and I won’t let naysayers stop me from bringing joy to others through my work. It’s my JOB and I love it.
❤️Today’s Affirmation : I AM too blessed to be bitter. ❤️ And so are you. Live your dreams, no matter what, or you will never be truely happy. I also have an art commission I’m starting today for a good friend who needs a smile. I have so many ideas!
I’m feeling so good, I painting this with my new watercolor set.
Did you smile? L.
So, if you are anything like me, having a dream and making that dream happen a little each day is an awesome feeling. But sometimes that awesomeness can be bitter sweet. When you are proud of a project and share it with the world, with not much response in return…. It can be discouraging.
I ask myself, “Is this really neat or am I just happy I did it?” and “I guess I need more practice”. It didn’t take me long to realize I had unknowingly started to base my ability in the amount of attention a project got. When did this happen?! How did I let what others thought matter more?? I’m so proud of everything I’ve made and will make.
❤️ Today’s Affirmation : My Joy Comes From Within. ❤️
Don’t end up like me and waste your time trying to change what you fell in love with about yourself, just to please the audience. The joy within you is so much more rich than the riches designer on the planet. Close your eyes today, and find that warmth within you just by thinking about the things you love about you and what you do. Sometimes we gotta remind ourselves of that every now and then . Our reasons, our goals. It’s something I’m still working on. I got this and so do you.
Question: What are some creations of yours that you are proud of? 🤓
Light and love. L.
