Final Ultimatum

LIFE UPDATE

PICTURE SOURCE

 

I’ve decided to  get tough and work with an inherent quirk:  self sabotage.

I’ve given it an ultimatum.

I’ve been  quiet-ish and random  (on here )because I’ve been a busy bee working on fulfilling my true passions.

Here’s a brief check in about  what I’m  currently doing in my life – I’, encouraging me to look after myself with kindness and make myself happy.

I equate privilege and wealth  with inner happiness – This is my currency for lasting happiness.

I’m embracing all my connections to get  my life sorted and reach my goals.

I’m still here and I will use whatever it takes to.. ahem.

break on through to the other side………. thanks Jim Morrison

I’m doing my final year with my Masters, I’m  embracing life as a single parent. Reclaiming my life and merging multiple passions/goals of mine:

  •  WRITING  

  • MENTAL HEALTH

  •  CREATIVITY

  •  CULTURE-

  • HISTORY

  • THE ARTS/PERFORMANCE/ENTERTAINMENT

Don’t count on other  people ‘to pat you on the back’ . Be your own mascot , cheer yourself on.  Create silver linings out of   stormy days.  Use a  hurricane life event to take stock , re evaluate.re- define, and acquire new skills and materials to start over.

Rely on yourself. Don’t rely  on other people to make you feel validated. Focus on the bigger picture and leave short term fixes to a minimun.

 I  think  many people give so  much of their energy  to others. I also thinks  many people give very little to others .

I think it’s time we should be kind to ourselves too

I stand by  my belief  that nobody  can define me :

Except me!

 I’ve re defined  my ‘black sheep’ role in  my family and society – I am not a sheep.

Being selfish is not a negative word. It’s  necessary for self development, growth to help  us become more productive ,and to pursue  our  goals  This often means, listening carefully to our  inner self , Don’t flinch or run away from change. Embrace change and fear. Don’t be afraid of success.

This blog is/has always been  for me . ( I believe in sharing  what makes me happy) because it may help others.

I strive to be authentic and to never be a “sell out”.

I support creativity. I believe every human being and species is/are  creative. We need to explore a variety of ways to express ourselves.    I am finally merging my  passions. My new page will be a regular addition to ‘the willows’  ( everyone is welcome)

I’m finally reciprocating with the people who seek me out and who I respect. The people  I feel are living the dream: being true to themselves .

 

I’m finally in a position to support and share creative individuals  content who I  think are G.O.A.T.

mmh?

 okay……..

bah-t

anacronym for G.reatest O.f  A.ll  T.ime

Ultimate competitor

goat

One of the Highly intellegant animals that lives in rocky mountains. These creatures actually seem to be smarter than the average human being, however they don’t have all the technology because of a lack opposable thumbs

 SOURCE

I love to research. I’m naturally curious to understand other cultures, people and inform myself. In a random  research  session, I discovered #wordsmatters 

I’m  moving forwards.

Finally, I am taking direction from Life’s sign posts.

A moment of serendipity sealed the ultimatum  to focus more on myself and the people in my life who matter. People who make me feel good. This will make more sense when I’m ready to go public with it.

I’ve been joking about giving people pet  goats   for gifts/presents for over two years.

This is a gift I give to myself.

Why the obsession with Goats, Daisy?

I admire goats. It’s my new archetype. Goats are smart, can climb trees ,they are cute

  1.  FACT : Wild goats will climb a mountain or a tree to satisfy their cravings for minerals.    I  will go out on a limb to satisfy my cravings. Self expression,  and creativity is a constant craving

  2. FACT-: Sheep have been reported  to have a suicidal tendencies

  3. FACT 3 : Certain breeds of goats have been known to suffer from severe panic attacks until they faint

Bah! I continue to  be upfront ,self  defined, and always march to my beat.

I remain  passionate about self expression and my ongoing  personal self development project/s.

Time to get back to life.

Live for yourself . Be so happy that you become a person who makes others feel happy.

    I LOVE this post. You’re a massive inspiration to me. I know I’ve been so busy lately and that has meant I’ve neglected important people. I’m re-evaluating my life goals and priorities too. I’ve let things get out of balance. Sending love and respect from another goat 😘😘😘
