What Stops you?

What stops you from achieving what you want??
I sit here thinking, remembering and digging up the dreams I squash under everyday things. I think this is what stops me from continuing forward. The 'Daily Grind' as they call it.
It is easy to get lost, not in a bad way but, to maybe allow daily routine to fog the glass of vision.
It's there that's for sure, and when I think about where it is I want to be going I think '..ahhh there's that thing I've always wanted to do and achieve, and why haven't I..' etc, etc, etc.
One fact - things don't happen if you don't pursue them in one way or other!!
So, without being too cryptic- I promise to myself to continue on but with daily pause and vision towards this ultimate dream and goal of mine that I simply cannot leave this earth without DOING WELL. Not attempting, but doing it, achieving it and being a success at it.
One terrible man I knew gave me really the only advice he was able too and quite possibly the reason why our paths crossed, and that was.. 'No matter how small or big the job, if it's worth doing, it's worth doing properly'.
For this I thank him because it has stuck, and whilst I don't follow the everyday, in every moment, I am glad for the guidance when I need it. Reassuring me that I do know what the hell I'm doing so just do it already for it's not lack of ability!

With so much going on how do we keep in touch with those we love?
Slowing down, walking in the grass with our shoes off and embracing.

Thank you to the people in my life who allow me to explore and allow a creative space where my notion to build and explore can exist. Thank you for the love and support you give me.

Today I am Grateful. As with most days in a quiet moment.

What are you grateful for??

Thank you for reading my quips, notions, creative outbursts and words in general.

As this year wraps up it's hard to believe the amount of experiences one goes through to get to this point. I think that's why there is a beginning and an end so that you can start afresh and put things to bed or relive them in a positve way, drawing apon the experience. Either way I think negative or positve, our year's experiences bring us opportunity.
This post is beginning to sound vaguely like last years post too!
To save you dejavu - I'll stop!
This year has brought with it, fruits of my labour and many more things. Specifically people! Doing what you love and enjoy surrounds your with people not unlike yourself. This I am grateful for. FABRIKATION WORKSHOP has done just this!! a fledgling idea, encouraged and nurtured by 2 very good friends who have been there form it's inception. Girls I 'Thank you', and ladies who've taken part since, I continue because of you!!! We have such a great time in our workshops and it has been one of this years joys, to witness the growth, confidence and skills of these women whom I consider friends. A true honour when another person puts you in the teachers' seat and asks you for guidance - albiet, where to put your needle next - it's all relevant to me!
So there you have it - Sewing anyone?
It's not just for the skills it's for the personal make over and rewards that have ensued.

Moving on and Up

It has been a while since my last post, and on looking through blogs of others I find that they too have times of absence.
Cyberspace is a form of safe place or friend where you can express yourself and share.
Like a good ol' friend you can pick up where you left off and nothing seems to change.
This year has thus far, been a great and creative one - documentation of this maybe not so much as we all get caught up in the throws of life and it's ways. I am no exception here!!
Being with and sharing these moments makes memories that create meaning too - Life itself, as also in death always brings perspective and conscientiousness.
I wish you all and your families well and hope you are creating memorable moments together... Living and experiencing each moment as it comes.
Dedicated to my Aunt Grace Jean Hunt
- forever in my thoughts and creative adventures xoxo
