I have attempted to reblog this post for the majority of the day!! After many failed attempts, I finally was successful using my laptop!! Sheesh. Check this act of kindness out. It truly is contagious. I am honored to have inspired such a positive display of kind-heartedness. Do participate, please!!
As you might know, I have been waiting for a while to post this, and I am quite excited to finally launch this new, monthly Kind Hearted Challenge!
What is the Kind Hearted Challenge about?
It is really simple… First of all, it is not a challenge per se, but more an invitation to take a moment and think about doing kind things around you. You don’t have to participate every month, and if you join in, you have all month to complete your mission.
I think that spreading the word out is the best way to get at least a couple of people to think “You know what? That’s really easy, I think I’ll give it a try!” There are so many free, easy acts of kindness that we can do in our everyday life… Things to make other people around us…
And while this transition may be painful I’ve realized where the struggle lies. I am letting go of the me I built to protect myself, the only me I know. I am learning to control myself. Not the things around me.
Call it 40, or whatever you’d like but I know for me, it’s awkward as fuck. I don’t know if you realize what I just said in that first paragraph but that shit is A LOT for me.!.!!!.!
I am ashamed to be myself and that is the damage done by my father wanting me to be someone I’m not. These revelations are coming to me in waves. And guess what?? I’m not drowning. Maybe I’m floating but so what, I’m aware, learning, growing and giving. I don’t want to resort to being a cold-hearted bitch because that’s not me so I’ve decided to do for those who are unable to do for themselves. Help them to believe in themselves. Give those a chance that others dispose of. I will prevail from this darkness a stronger person than I went in and when I do, I will be ready to be used as the vessel I chose to be.
For the record, I didn’t feel like that was me speaking but with confidence I publish this post. Not as a warning but as a prediction.
For any length of time, you know my intentions are pure but my planning abilities, need some work. It’s evident I had Day One all nicely planned and ready to go. Day Two, not so much. 😂 but because I have time from now until shipment day, I can add as much stuff as I want to the packages 🙂 And I have a surprise for yall when the winner is announced. Whoop, whoop😂
So, until then…
I will photograph the final outgoing packages so everyone gets a looksie.
Is postponed until next week in loo of the giveaway.
Let’s start Day Two with a familiar photo…
Prize One! A composition notebook lightly decorated with colorful thought bubbles and feathers. The set of designer pencils will be included as well. Today won’t be as timely as yesterday but we will make it through Day Two of 2 days of giveaway!
You need a pen to write your thoughts with!! How about TWO?!! That wraps up today’s gift package. A collaged journal, a large journal package, journaling cards, a passport insert, and two designer pens!! What more could you ask for??
The advertisements found in this package are all sourced from estate sales and antique shop’s by yours truly. I seek and I destruct. I cut some to size, I undo binding, I dye each page if that is the desired look I am going for, I group similar images, I cut designer paper down to different sizes. All of this is done for you to have a nice variety to be used in your personal journals. I enjoy the process of doing all of these steps to provide products for my followers. Your support and patience mean the world to me.
I have hired someone to help me with assembling notebooks and putting products in their proper shipping bags. She is supportive of the future of my business and is accepting payment once the products are sold. I cannot wait until that is not the case 🙂 My medication is working but not to its full potential. But, honestly y’all, Thank you for being so patient as my mental health has bounced from extreme to extreme. Your support doesn’t waiver and you know what?? For someone who craves stability….y’all are the true MVP’s!!
