Daily Affirmation Art :The Force 


First off, R.I.P Carrie Fisher. 😢 In honor of her amazing life on earth, I did a caricature of her. 

❤️ Today’s Affirmation : The Force is with me Always ❤️ 

To me, the force is another way of saying something within you that you cling to all the time. Especially during tough times. The force could be thoughts of what keeps you going. Your reminder for why what do what you do. It could be thoughts of the dreams and goals you are currently striving for. The people in your life that you work hard for. Like Chi, the force is anything and everything positive in your life that pushes you to go just ‘one more day’.

 So what is your driving force? What keeps you going further then you did the day before? I hope everyone is having a great week. ❤️

Daily Affirmation : Life, the gift

 

5 More Days (including christmas)!!! I swear I’m as excited as Danielle. Emma is 2, so she’s just excited to spin the ornaments on the tree when I’m not looking.

 ❤️🎄️Today’s Affirmation : The Best Gift Is Life🎄❤️ 

It’s easy to get caught up in the goings on of life that we may not realize we are just “going through the motions” and not really “living” it. It’s so easy. Trust me, I know. Take a few steps back every now and then today and just breathe in all that’s around you. Even in tough moments (I had three today), remembering to breathe instead of spaz gets me through it quicker then suffering in silence. We are alive. We can make choices and do fun things and hard things and all the in between things. Life… ‘Nuff said. ❤️

Daily Affirmation thru Illustration : Unavoidable Mondays

     

    It’s Monday again. I know , I know, but hear me out. We are here, so we  may as well make the best of it, right? It seems on Mondays, the entire human race is cranky and unhappy. I think we all have a problem with letting the weekend go. Especially Sunday –  our day of rest. But be mindful of your thoughts at all times. Thoughts create things, so if you wake up and start your day, cranky, it’ll only continue since that’s the signal you are sending out to the universe. So, today’s Affirmation to combat this emotional warfare is the simplest thing you can say, that works the best. 

 ❤️ Daily Affirmation : Peace, be still ❤️ 

   Such a simple phrase yet at any given moment, it could be the very phrase that saves your day or stops you in your tracks when you feel a swear building in the back of your throat for the driver who cut you off on the road… again . This morning while taking my oldest, Chi, to school, I was cut off. I got mad but only because I was still so tired. Still, since I didn’t check myself emotionally, it happened two more times before I made it to the school.😒  The school is a three minute drive up the road. I had to check myself. I was spiraling down the wrong rabbit🐰 hole  and I knew it would only get more frustrating. Once I said the Affirmation, it didn’t matter what happend to me. I was blind  to the stupidity of others because I changed my focus. Sure enough, nothing else happend. 

   When you feel anger, irritation, sadness, or just overwhelmed, say this Affirmation. Take deep breaths and say it (eyes closed or open). You’ll feel at peace so fast, you won’t remember why you were mad to begin with. L. 

Daily Affirmation : Gratitude keeps it going 

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. 

Daily Affirmation Drawing: My own Joy… 

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.

QuestionWhat are some creations of yours that you are proud of?  🤓

Light and love. L. 

Daily Affirmation in Line Art for ☺️


 So, I know we’re (maily) grown ups or getting there. But I’m a big believer in learning and knowing that there is always something you can learn. My difficulty, drawing hands. But I’m also learning new crafts to sell, watercolors, and making my skill better all around. ❤️Today’s Affirmation : I will never stop learning❤️ Happy Sunday, all. Light and love. 

Daily Affirmation & My Quote: When Life Gives You Lemons. . . 

   Just wanted to share a still shot of my butterfly-loving Mermaid, Who thought face her fears and defy all odds, just to have her very own.  When life gives you lemons (those sour moments you can’t avoid),  defy all odds and find a way to move forward anyway.  You just might suprise yourself. Even just goal step forward can tip the balance and change your whole outlook on that lemon flavored life crisis you ‘thought’ you had. 😆✌️❤️ Happy Saturday, all. Light and Love.  (site link in bio,  if you wanna keep reading) 

Night Owl Chronicles :Change is Good : Daily Affirmation 

   I know it’s Thursday (already Friday for some of you ☺️). Here’s a  glance at my week so far,minus Thursday . Changing my routine a little, like my pork out at night, is an adjustment. I’m not sure why I decided to do it, but the change made it fresh for me again, I guess. Working out usually wakes me up, but I  think it’s calming my mind down now. I still do my Night-owl thing, but falling asleep when I lay down hasn’t been as hard as usual. Change can be good, even one’s you didn’t plan. Especially those.

 ❤️ So, Today’s Affirmation : The changes I make will change my world in a good way.❤️ 

   What other changes have I made this week…  working  with Batman’s overtime schedule , first time at “toddler time”  tomorrow , oh, and I shared some #lineart I’m really proud of today. 🤓 THAT was cool. 

Talk about getting over a “fear hump”  or two. . . or three. 😡 such is life, and I’m damn proud of myself!  I recorded another video of the “Lyme Warriors ” banner today too, but I’ll post it tomorrow . I put alot of energy into my work today. And I plan on doing it all over again tomorrow .

 I know what you’re  thinking, somethings’ off about this line art.  Your thinking,  “why a Mermaid? ” . I’m kidding, the butterfly in the jar?  I don’t know. When I first drew It, it was just an empty jar. Then Batman asked,  “why a Jar? “.  You  see the rabbit hole with a question like that,  right? 🐰 

When  I did the initial sketch, it was 3am,and I was trying to make myself go to sleep. Well, somehow, a pencil and my sketch journal ‘fell’ into my lap while laying down. It was the strangest thing… 🙄

   One thing I can tell you I believe , when you have inspired thought, you have to act on it, no matter what. I can’t remember where I’d heard that before, but it stuck with me. The urge to draw was strong and I still don’t know where the idea came from… L.
