Hello again! I have added four prints to my Etsy shop, and there are many more to come here within the next few days! These prints are 11″ x 11″, SUPER colorful, and only $10.00! They are printed on card-stock and would look great either framed or put straight on the wall. Don’t need one for yourself? This would make an awesome and unique gift.
My Etsy shop, MistycalEmporium, as I told in a previous post, was just opened up (yay)! I am pushing my depression and anxieties out of the way and embracing the gifts that I have been given. For many years, I have used my bed as a safe haven..my happy place, or so I thought. Happiness, for me, is not lying in bed over-thinking or forcing sleep upon myself to forget the worries of the current day; happiness is cherishing every moment and doing all that I can to make use of my talents, whether it be helping others through a hard time or painting my thoughts. Daily, I am working on new items for my Etsy shop; there will be new merchandise added daily (hopefully)! Currently there are two items, both of which are hand painted by me. Prints of those items will be coming to the shop shortly. Exciting things are happening in my life and in my Etsy shop, so don’t be shy; keep up with me and my journey.
Thank you to anyone who has offered kind words, sent positive vibes, or encouraged me to pursue my dreams.
Why am I expected to be so much?
My complex mind consumes me,
how am I ever to know how much is enough?
How much anxiety do I face before I refuse to take anymore?
How many tears to drown my cheekbones,
how many tears to make my weary eyes sore?
What am I, but human?
What else am I to be?
If there was another option,
then believe me, I’d flee.
I’d flee from all my worries-
I’d flee from my regrets.
Not only would I flee from myself,
I’d flee from those who love me best.
I believe I see the world differently than most – for what things are, not what they seem to be. It is difficult [impossible] to make friends, especially ones that last. I see through the meaningless words and the petty [heartbreaking] lies. Genuine is an endangered species. Some [most] keep up with ‘celebrities’ rather than their family and friends, and this is the current sadness of the world. Fuck keeping up with the Kardashians. I am guilty, though; keeping up with ‘celebrities’, comparing myself/others, jealous thoughts – but the conscious effort is currently being made to admire and keep up with what is real in my life. I am worth being compared to only my past self. I am worth being loved for my soul [who I really am], rather than being loved for my body [which is merely a shell]. My skin is a casing which encloses all of which make me who I am. Who judges a present based solely on the packaging? My words, my art, my tears.. they are all a pathway into the deepest part of me. Are you ready for the journey?
