I love art and making art to share with others in the form of coloring books and positive affirmations. I want to do more with that and expand to videos and courses to share what I know and love with the world. I have been rather shy taking the long road to stepping into my greatness but it's just time to jump and see what happens. As we evolve and change, so does our work and creativity and styles of leadership as we navigate through life. Thank you to everyone who has bought a coloring book and supported my work so far...expected bigger and better things as I hold myself accountable more and more. I love you all - Liz
So grateful that I was able to start a clothing store and a coloring book by this title! I love cats and I love pawsitive affirmations (i.e. self-compliments) so I decided to combine my two favorite things! Check out my coloring book or the clothing store if you like cats and positive self-talk.
2021 is the year of abundance and growth. New projects inbound! Stay tuned
Hey everyone! I will be going back to college to finish my degree this Fall. I also plan to start my vampire novel soon, as well as complete a free affirmation coloring book to be released this month. I have a list of stories to write, as well as more art projects planned for the near future.
My latest coloring book is out finally! It has been a crazy year of work and not enough creativity. I am working on re-vamping old coloring books and coming out with new projects in 2020. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey <3
My last post was nine months ago.... and no I wasn't pregnant! Life just got in the way. New adventures, new choices, new paths.... I lost sight of myself and my creativity. I've been focused on survival...paying the bills, living paycheck to paycheck. I've been so tired. But through that exhaustion I have found a spark of creativity again. What is to come? I am not even sure yet.... just stay tuned.
Love you All
Happiness is a journey. It is a process. It is personal. It is relative. And it changes form in an instant.
Treat your happiness as a journey; as something that evolves as you grow along your path.
Happiness changes definitions throughout our lives as we learn new things, discard old things, and make choices based on what we know
What does it mean to be happy for you right now?
Can you think of a time when being happy meant something different?
How about your dreams of the future, what does happy look like then?
In order to grasp happiness and hold it tight, you have to define it first, and yet simultaneously be ready to release it and allow for an upgraded version of happiness to enter your life.
Happiness is ultimately within us. It is not based on outside factors, because those change even more quickly than our core self over years of growth. If you base your happiness on achieving the next thing, on acquiring the next thing, on waiting for the next thing to happen, then you will never be happy. Happiness is in the present moment. You can only be happy now, not then, and not later.
Ask yourself: Do you even want to be happy?
We like what is familiar. The human mind loves what is familiar. It likes patterns. It likes repetition. The mind finds a familiar pattern to keep you safe, because the minds’ one and only job is to survive. So if you have been unhappy for 50 years, unhappiness is familiar to you. Some people even like being unhappy. It is what is safe for them.
And yet we can make a new choice to be happy in any moment.
We forget this sometimes, and that is okay. Bring yourself back to remembering. We make choices every day, all day, in every moment. And our choices define our life path while providing learning opportunities; the ultimate growth for our mind, bodies, and soul. You can choose to be happy. The first step is choosing. Even if you don’t know how to get happy yet, make the conscious decision to figure it out, to work towards it, to be happy.
Start your journey to be happy, whatever that looks like to you. Honor yourself in every moment and make choices that will steer your life in the direction you want. Unhappiness may be familiar right now, but you can also make happiness, joy, and bliss familiar. Keep moving towards happy.
We must always take one day at a time...one moment at a time. There is a time for everything and everything happens in time.... I've been "busy" working two jobs and I "lost" my creativity for a bit there. I am now working on a new coloring book and have a novel, children's book series and a new personal growth book in the works. Be careful what you wish for! I asked to get creative again and here we are! New projects will happen in flow, as always. Who knows what the next moment will bring! Thank you again for sharing this journey with me.
Talk To Yourself:
A Coloring Book to Boost Your Self-Esteem
We become the stories we tell ourselves
So, how do you talk to yourself?
Words have power. The words we use to describe ourselves are important. Words form our perceptions and beliefs. When you change the words you use, your life changes as well. Choose the words you use purposefully, with positive intention, to convey the way you want to think about yourself and your life. This is your life...how do you want to think about it? How do you want to talk to yourself?
The affirmations in this coloring book are designed to work with your mind to change your thoughts/beliefs in order to promote a positive shift in your self-talk. Whether we'd like to admit it or not, words do affect us and we can use them purposefully to assist our conscious and subconscious minds to change the thoughts and beliefs we have about ourselves.
Seeing positive words and images influences positive thoughts, and thus positive beliefs and positive actions. We become the stories we tell ourselves. Invest in yourself by talking to yourself in a different way. Communicate with yourself and give yourself better messages. Get your mind in your side and work together to create the life you really want by focusing on loving yourself first and foremost.
There are 111 unique designs/affirmations to color in this book, including seven blank designs to write your own loving reminders. This is your life. Are you choosing to uplift and inspire yourself with your words? Or are you choosing to reject and criticize yourself? Choose to give yourself better messages, starting with the ones in this coloring book.
Welcome to my blog! I like to assist others on their journey to awakening by sharing what I have come to understand about the nature of the universe. Thank you for your support by reading this blog. We expand our own knowledge, our own truth, by reading and researching many different ideas to find the ones we resonate with and incorporate into our own truth. Find your truth and live it.
