I don’t know if I just want to help “end stigma” because I’ve noticed that I’ve been gravitating towards Art a lot these past few weeks. But, I like writing, too AND reading, but I need to focus on one thing and read as many books and since I’m going back to school, I think it’s best to read up on Art… I’m thinking of tying it with mental illness, though; creativity and mental illness and then introducing that as the focus or theme rather than just “ending stigma” and then talking about the tragic parts of it or ranting off a “soapbox”, for the lack of TERMz. Because, as the year ends, I’m going to be entering the new year with reading a lot of books. If I read one book a month, that’s 12 books a year, and you multiply that for 10 years, and you get… well… a lot of books. Lol  Okay, fine, 120 but numbers aside, I want to read up and be an expert on my passion and from what I’ve been seeing myself doing on social media, I’ve been interacting more on the creative side with my artwork. Nothing big, but I see that I get more interaction and more inspiration from it and I’ve been thinking more about it. Like, I’ve observed the intensity of my excitement exceeds my writing… tbh. I’m not going to quit blogging. I have to do this 31-day writing thing so I’ll be doing this for a solid month, but I still don’t know what to do with this blog… I have a lot of reading to do for this blog if I’m serious about this shit, but I really, really need to focus on some plans and goals for this, like specific, measurable plans. For now, I’m  just going to randomly write… So, basically, I want to focus and tie in creativity with mental illness… and in that sense find a way to incorporate it in supporting “ending stigma”. You can’t really “end” stigma, but you can … INFORM… EDUCATE… you can’t “end” something. Ignorant people have already made up their mind. You can’t open up a closed mind. That’s why they’re called close-minded, ignorant people. We just have to move on passed them and inform and educate the ones who are intelligent and cultured enough to embrace people who have super powers.

Meds kicking in… rain’s lulling my brain to bed… still gotta’ meditate. I have a big day tomorrow. Very excited. I just want this Season to be over with. I’m already over Christmas. I know, that was quick … BUT… inhale, and then… exhale… inhale!…. HOLD…. Exhale…. One day at a time.

… walkin in a winter wonder land…

Go beyond. And RISE.

I am currently doing a 365 day challenge of listening to my favorite motivational speaker. I will be listening/reading to Les Brown for the next 365 days and then blogging about my self-improvement of all different aspects of my life called the well-rounded wheel: health, financial, mental, spiritual, intellectual, family, social, etc. I will use this to self-reflect for my growth in self-improvement. This blog is for my 5-year plan. I started this in 2015, August on my Birthday because I’ve realized that time just keep passing by and doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results has finally sunk into my brain that I was one of them thinking that I would get different results. That stopped on my Birthday last year. Now, I do check-ins during New Year’s Eve/Day which I just did my first one 2 nights ago. I like doing mine on my Birthday because it’s for me AND doing New Year’s resolution puts too much pressure on people and if they break it, they beat themselves up, lose their drive and just give up. I’ve come to realize that what works for me is working on myself for myself on my Birthday and then just doing check-ins New Year’s Eve/Day and this keeps me focused and motivated. 1 year is not enough. You need big goals, like 5 years and let 1 year be a milestone. (More on that on my blogs). I have broken down my dreams into goals and plans. I allocated them into smaller goals and plans and put them into SMART goals plans: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-sensitive, because, c’mon….dreams don’t come true UNTIL you write them down into action plans, and hence, this site is born for MY OWN DREAMS. There will be inspirational quotes, inspirational articles with my take on them, and plenty other resources of inspirational/motivational everything and everyone that I can think of to assist in my personal growth and all aspects of my life. And, most importantly… it’s my place to write about whatever I want to write about and anything that interests me, so this is also a hobby for myself. So, welcome, come along the journey ride and watch me grow or you can tag along and grow with me. Happy New Year! My 2016 is amazing so far!! :) It’s also a place for me to just… grow and express my creativity and learn about myself.
