Paralyzed... [happy Moody Monday!]

It's such a shame.

I'm taking this AMAZING blogging course by Holly from Decor8 and all i feel is paralyzed by blogging.  - that my blog isn't pretty enough, or smart enough, or inspiring enough.

It's very hindering; these feelings...  especially when i am CONSTANTLY inspired by everything i click online.

I have trouble being completely paralyzed by EVERYTHING i need to do in order to be a good blogger, a good business person, successful enough to survive, etc.

I have trouble figuring out what the right FIRST steps to take are in this social networking world are...

I don't actually consider myself a jealous person necessarily, but i always feel like I'm behind, and could never be 'as good' or as 'interesting' as other people. I truly am not trying to compare myself, but right now, i feel like there is so much to do to 'catch up' and that there is SO MUCH inspiration online, that i get distracted or want to do everything, which makes me lose sight of what makes me genuine.

What breaks my heart the most is knowing i've dealt with these emotions for SUCH a long time! Years! And the that it's been hindering my growth for years, seems so very heart wrenching...

Does anyone else feel these heavy feelings? I don't feel as though i am alone in this boat, but sometimes the boat swishes through the waves, and i don't hear any other voices.

It's quite daunting.
I hope you had a WONDERFUL weekend!

Inspired. Learned. Quoted.

I learned so much at church tonight that i wanted to blog about it! I can't wait to doodle all these INSPIRING quotes and wisdom bits. :D
"everyone has SOMETHING to offer" 
"Little bits of faithfulness. Thats how the world changes"
"choose to trust even if it's hard"
"I've never met anyone who regretted trusting God"
"choose joy"
"farther along, we'll understand why"

"God is always at work, even if we can't see it"
"the most amazing things about god is how he heals us'
:) :)

I'm in NEW YORK!

I know i've been kinda of MIA after being pretty consistant for a little while, but i wanted to say hello from THE BIG APPLE! I'm staying with two of my favorite people in Queens, NY, enjoying the 'fall weather' AKA warm tempatures in the AM, cool in the evenings... 

But it's been a GREAT time thus far!
I hope you're having a lovely week!

Saves the Day, saves MY day.

Laying on the mattress on the floor. 
Room draped in sunlight. 
Record spinning playing the lyrics I love. 
Slowly contemplating. 
Draw draw drawing the lyrics that make my heart light up.

I've been a BUSY bee!

Life has been such a crazy adventure, i can't barely keep up! After opening my new "Nightly Doodle" Etsy shop and blog, i decided i needed to really reVAMP all my shops!

These are some of the images from all my crafty business ventures...

Interesting...... na-doodle friend Tara sent this to me this morning and oddly enough, it's pretty accurate which COMPLETELY surprises me. 

I know it's kind of long, so i don't blame you if you didn't want to read it all. Ha. But i wanted to share anyways!

You love a good time. You are generally happy, friendly, and outgoing. You have a gift for gab. You are very witty, creative, and playful. You inspire and entertain people. You are considered by many a great companion.

You have a gift for self expression and are drawn to the verbal arts -- writing, acting, singing, and poetry. You may have a great talent in one of these areas. If your creativity is blocked or suppressed, you tend to daydream and fantasize. Your imagination needs a constructive outlet; otherwise, it may run away with you.

If you fail to deal honestly with your inner nature, you may succumb to compulsive talking. Such behavior may be merely a way of siphoning off emotional energy that is building beneath your surface. Your deeply felt emotional life cannot be avoided or suppressed. But you possess the talent to channel these feelings into highly creative and artistic form. Art and self-expression are your outlets.

You need discipline to make full use of your abilities. Too often, you may scatter your energies in many directions, beginning projects that are never finished and never really succeeding in anything.

You success depends on your ability to commit to your work and to see it through to completion. You have so much creativity and inspiring upward energy that you are in desperate need of an anchor. Hard work and discipline serve this purpose and bring out the best in you.

Because you are gifted with such a sparkling personality, you are tempted to stay on the surface and play with life.

You have the potential to live a very full and successful life thanks to your talent for artistic self expression. The key to your success is a balance between the creative forces and self-disclose."

Happy SUNday lovely folks!
