My ambitions!!!( What I am currently working on)

I decided to write today!!! Not just blog, but actually write…
The funny thing is I thought I wanted to write a book about my boring single life, but I realized that was not my calling. I decided children’s books were what I am going to write.
I chose children’s books because I read them every day…I work with children and I literacy is a huge passion of mine.
My downfall currently is finding the time write and research…so since I have no plans today and tomorrow I will simply continue to do both.
Follow me on my blog journey of the highs and lows of my writing life. My goal is to post at least three times each month my process and where I am at with my writing. I will share my inspiration, lines, and hopefully sketches, and more.

My Inspiration…when I’m feeling down

Lately, I’ve been up and down, but more so down than anything. I like a lot of what’s going on in my life, but a lot of things I need to change. I haven’t been blogging consistently, but hopefully that will change…I just need a little inspiration from time to time…

When I’m feeling down, what I have been doing is writing in my journal, writing parts a book, pinterest, and YouTube.

Why I turn YouTube, some might ask is because there are a few channels that inspires me and uplifts me to get up and do something for myself or go by something to make me happy.

On pinterest, I enjoy seeing other people’s pins, but actually like looking at the articles too. I truly love pinterest…when I am down or bored, you can find me here.

So today I am feeling okay, and I decided to share a little of what makes me happy and hope whenever you are down you can find some inspiration or something that uplifts you and motivates you…to smile.

My Poppin Supplies!!!

My love for office supplies has truly increased. I recently came across a promotional email for office supplies from a company called “Poppin”.

I took a look at the website and was immediately drawn to the colors that “popped” and the designs. As I was scrolling through the website, I notice the “gold color story” in office supplies, and purchased a small notebook and a envelope. I couldn’t just check out without completing my pen fetish and added there signature ballpoint pens to complete my order. The pen writes really smooth, I know this because I write with particular pens and it has to grip a certain way for me to love the pen and continue to use it.

Assorted Signature Ballpoint Pens

The checkout was easy and the delivery was fast. I will order from this site again. Poppin is also available at Staples office supplies, with a limited selection.

*Note: this is my own review and my thoughts I wanted to share, with other office supply lovers….

What I did for myself today!!!!

Since  I had the day off and usually I have no major plans, but running errands. I went to bed last night thinking I will do yoga and let out whatever this energy is I’m going through.

So I started my journey to yoga, but I was late, didn’t quite make it. However, on my late travels I discovered a hip hop dance class called “Groove”in Oakland, California where I live. I walked in the class and it was only $5, so I decided to try something way out of my element. I felt free and didn’t care who was watching me.

I am very proud of myself and now question, what will I do next for myself. The lesson I learned about myself today is, I know I am not a dancer, but I didn’t care, I tried and I succeeded.

Finding a time to write….

Finding a time to write this past month has not been easy. I haven’t had the creative space I need to really write, but I know it will come back to me. I want to write everyday, but lately it’s been hard.

As I continue to journal, I am starting to be inspired again. I want to be the best writer I can be….My new post , we be on a new product, called “Poppin”. They have really nice office supplies and other other accessories.

I will start my blog back up on Sunday. As always even when I loose inspiration, it comes back to me.Finding a space and time is needed for me.

Have a great weekend!!!!!
