Peel Off Your False Face

Pull back the face of defeat and see who you are under it. Peel the false faces you let cover your potential and your power. Behind the cloud of defeat is the rainbow of recovery and success.

Allow yourself the chance to see what you are capable of. You are capable of more than you give yourself credit for.

Become more of yourself in your growth and see how much greatness can come if you simply think that you can.

Freedom Quote: Have a Vision and Make it Active

However long until the last phase, until I’m able to take action on a vision, I will have that vision and I will believe in it. As long as I believe in it, I believe in myself, I believe in pursuing it, I believe in pursuing myself in it. I am what I want to be. My ideas, my visions, my plans, and my actions are who I am.

Have a Vision and Make it Active

You are your Life Purpose

Inspiration for this post is coming from the tiring always love notes of making money and finding your one true purpose in life.  I decided to crush that motif and tell anyone and everyone who reads this that your purpose is yourself and drive, motivation, and contentment is greater than money and will always be your wealth.

I always hear the shaming of pursuing art related careers and the stress and strains of science base, business base, or any other career you get into, even those that have everyday retail jobs or jobs that seem to get them food on the table.  No matter how hard you try, how desperate the need for money, its better to do what makes your skin form goosebumps or cheekbones hurt smiling from the feeling of pride once everyday is done.

The motivation you will get from tireless hours on that painting, song, article, working in a lab, helping someone with that paper, teaching those less fortunate will be effortless and flawless.  Always do what makes you want to wake up in the morning and strive to reach the point where you’ve gotten the most out of that time and space.  There’s no better feeling then finding that you crave the sweat that will get you to your next goal. Your ultimate purpose is to see yourself in your element of contentment.

How refreshed you will feel, how much work you will do, how many hours you will put in will be a reflection of the longing for finding yourself in whatever you like doing.

Remember always to work on yourself because you are your purpose and will always be your purpose.  Working, meeting people, having experiences is all pieces in order for you to figure out how powerful you can be and the amount of potential you have by just being yourself.

Always remember to love, work, care, and push yourself continuously and in that you will already be pursuing your life’s purpose.  Don’t let anyone tell you what you like to do is worthless. Keep going.  You got this.

You are your Life Purpose

War Zone Quote: Save Yourself

Don’t wait around for someone to save you. You can save yourself because you have all the power and ability to. Once you bandage up your wombs and you’re well again, keep moving. You got this. You’re strong enough, good enough, and able to get through your hardest obstacles.

Living with Anxiety: My Life and my Struggles are Valid

Living with anxiety is not always easy to explain. Some days “feel” okay, while others are filled with worry and nervousness. I try my best to be “positive” in the lowest sense of the term in my low days, and try to keep productive in my high days. One of the most difficult times when living with anxiety, however, is trying to explain it to others.

You understand that sometimes what makes you nervous or anxious shouldn’t make you so but it does. Or maybe it should be easy to calm yourself when you feel overwhelmed, but it’s not.

Realize that you are not crazy and what you have you are more than. You are brave, strong, and powerful even when you feel like you’re not. Your feelings are valid. Never let anyone take your power to validate your struggle away.

Some days are difficult, especially those days your pain spills out in panic, but remember that you have purpose.

See your purpose outside of your pain and trauma. See your purpose outside of your anxiety. Your life will always and forever have worth.

Late Night talks with Nina: Let’s talk about Depression and Mental Illness

Let’s not only look out for our “strong friends” in the wake of the multiple suicides that has surfaced in the past month. Let’s talk about depression wholeatically and ways that we can be helpful to one another. Let’s talk about mental illnesses and things that we can do to better the lives of the ones we see show symptoms that are obvious and not so obvious. Let’s be aware and awake for one another. Let’s be supportive, invested, and not afraid to sit and talk to each other about mental struggles we go through. Let’s look out for everyone and not just the ones we suspect are “too strong” and may be hiding depression. Let’s instead understand, learn, and gain perspective about mental illnesses and ways that we, as their loved ones, can continuously aid in their healing process. Let the ones who are struggling be comfortable enough to talk about their struggles even if it’s vague or confusing at first. Let us be authentic to one another. Let us ask questions, be present, and actively love on each other.

Declarations to Live by and Internalize: Cry

There is no shame in crying in order to heal and recover. Give yourself time and space to reflect and to grow in your pain. Don’t be ashamed of your pain.

Let your pain out. Let it dissolve in the freshness of something new. Become better.

Let yourself become a product of a freed pain. Help someone else free their pain.

I can Feel Something Big Coming

I’ve never felt so proud of myself ever before.

The excitement to create or make something and call it mine.

To give myself credit is to create power in myself.

I feel my purpose in this. This is my healing and my strength.

My self-worth is my motivation. And as I become more and more engulfed in my self-journey, I can feel joy like no other.

A joy that is great and more overwhelming then I could imagine.

This. Is. Me.

The way I can imagine something and give it life. The way I can create using words. A story made into art.

This is sparklywartanks.

Sparklywartanks is the birth of my identity. The creation of the lion in my dream.

I will work until I build what my vision has crafted.

The hardest part of my life gave birth to my purpose so I thank the struggle for making the diamond.

My motivation has never been this intense.

It’s time to create something. Something that reflects what I see in my mind because it’s beautiful.

It’s peace…

And happiness.
