It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…However It Sure Doesn’t Feel Like It!

So it seems we’re getting closer to Christmas time along with the new year, we got 4 more days before everyone’s saying Merry Christmas and one more week left before we’re saying farewell to 2021 and how’s it going 2022! I can’t even begin to tell you where this year has gone especially when it comes to the month of December….this month approached us so quickly and just as we were getting comfortable with it, thinking it was going to stay a while like the rest of the other months, it surprised us all with how close it is to finishing, LITERALLY December is over next week and I don’t know how to feel about that exactly!?

You know I was thinking out loud to myself earlier this morning, I had a few thoughts and the best way for me to get my thoughts out is speaking out loud to myself, it helps me to not keep certain emotions in…..I probably could’ve written it down as well, but it wasn’t in my mind to that in the moment so I was just letting it out to the air! I know that probably sounds weird, but I feel it to really help, sometimes I don’t always want to talk about things to people so I say it to myself that way it’s out of my head.

I won’t talk about everything I thought about, but I will talk about a specific thing…which actually came out of nowhere to be fair…..I had a thought where I thought about dealing with things, now this may come out as deep, although it’s not what I’m intending for it to be, but if it does then it does…..anyway when it comes to dealing with things and this could be in a general state…..as humans….we don’t necessarily have to deal with anything really, yes there are things that we have to accept in our lives, but the real question or statement to it shall I say isn’t about dealing with things, but more adapting to it, where it’s a choice!

What I mean by that is, when we’re surrounded with different scenarios, situations, people even, we have the choice of whether we want to allow those things into our lives, as well as choosing whether we want to adapt to those things…..life is always going as we know, we also know that there’s always something new to experience with it and a lot of the time we aren’t aware to what those things are and so we tend to be left with surprises from it!

That being said….just because there’s a lot going on with life it doesn’t mean that we have to always adapt to everything, although we should try our best to accept things as they are, even when it’s something we may not want to accept in the moment, it’s important to know that there’s a difference to accepting something and having the choice to adapt to that same thing…..it’s like flowers…..I know weird example I’m about to give, but it’s the first thing that came to mind so it’s what I’m going to use, flowers are very interesting!

If you’re lucky you may just see one sprout through concrete…..but with most flowers they all have a season, most of them tend to grow during the Springtime, but there are others that grow in the Summer and Fall and there are very rare and unique ones that might just grow during the Winter time, now you might be asking yourself where am I going with this…..to bring it back the best way I know how…..with most flowers they know their season and although there are flowers that will adapt and grow in the other seasons, most of them are Spring time flowers and won’t grow in any other season, but it’s because it’s how their made, they accept it!

What I’m trying to say here is, we’re not always meant to adapt to certain things, we can choose to adapt and put ourselves into something and be around people that are a little different to us, but that we know can help us in some way, however we don’t have to feel like we have to force ourselves to adapt to things that we know within ourselves isn’t who we are! When we find ourselves in those situations, it’s important to hear what our inner voices are saying, so if you’re in a place and you start to feel like you’re not meant to be there….really listen to that feeling!

If you find yourself surrounded by people and you’re feeling more out of place then you are enjoying yourself then really look at that, sometimes you can have moments where it’s more out of shyness then you feeling you’re just there and that’s it, it really depends on the situation there, but if you genuinely feel like you’re always invading people personal space even when they tell you you’re not or you just feel like it’s not your kind of scene then that’s when you want to look into it deeper!

Now I’m not saying don’t go out of your comfort because it’s important to do that every now and again, because it allows you to gain new experiences and see things in a whole new way to what you were use to, as well as getting to meet new people, some of them will have shared interests and will be similar to you and some will be the complete opposite to you, but sometimes that’s the best thing because you don’t want everyone to be like you it’s good to have that one person that’s more realistic and will tell you “hey you might want to re look at this” or tell you if you’re going a little off track, but not in a way of saying their way is right and your way is wrong, but just by letting you know they care and always want to make sure you’re good!

Those are the people you want in your life, you want someone to be your Ying to their Yang, you can’t have one without the other….but to get back on track…..It’s important to know yourself and what feels right to you and what doesn’t…..in terms of people, as much as we may want all that come into our lives to stay…..not all of them are going to….so as we wrap up the year within the next few days…..whoever chooses to adapt and stay in our lives will and those who feel it’s time for them to move on in whatever way or form…..

Well you should always choose to thank them for being with you for the time that they were and accept the situation however it may come, when it comes to all the other things look at what they are and decide if whether you want to adapt to them or not and whatever you choose, always try your best to accept even if it feels hard at first, always accept it!

Take care, stay safe and happy holidays!

Let’s Talk: The Sunflower Episode (Craig Of The Creek)

Good Morning everyone, hope your Wednesday is going splendid! My Wednesday morning had a bit of a trip over, but it’s good now, I made some coffee and I’m feeling good not stressed out, not that I was super stressed out or anything, I was testing out my headphone mic to be able to record a new podcast episode later today and it was kind of getting to me a bit, but it’s working now and hopefully it continues like that, I’m starting to think I should invest in an actual, but affordable microphone, I almost got one, but then I didn’t…..ANYWAY moving on, today I wanted to discuss upon one of my favorite cartoon shows, you might’ve heard me talking about it before, but I really do love this show and so I wanted to talk about one of the recent episodes that I watched a few days ago,

I haven’t been watching it as much these days, so I was trying to catch up on the episodes that I had missed that were new and this little cute thing of an episode is now one of my favorites, like you have to watch it okay! Now you might’ve taken a gander of what episode we’ll be touching on, but for a reminder we’ll be taking a look at The Sunflower episode from Craig Of The Creek, some of you might remember and some of you might not remember, but I’ve spoken about Craig Of The Creek a few times here, now if you never watched this show or maybe heard of it, I would definitely recommend checking it out!

Before we get into the episode, I just want to say that when it comes to movies and shows, I’ve stated many times how, I’m not the best reviewer of them, like I don’t watch a show or movie to critique it and what I mean by that is I don’t normally analyze it to it’s plot and story or anything like that, because…..that’s not what I look for, also it’s not really my specialty, I just watch shows and movies for enjoyment and if I have thoughts about it after watching them, that I have in mind or I feel something maybe didn’t connect with me then I will sometimes share my thoughts based on that, but how normal show and movie critics look at these things…..I don’t do that at least I don’t ever feel I do it in the way they do, if that makes sense!? If I enjoy something I talk about it and if I don’t I on occasion talk about it!

Craig Of The Creek though, is one of my favorite shows and so when I speak about it, it’s always in good light, I never have anything bad to say about it, because I genuinely always enjoy each episode I watch and The Sunflower episode was an episode I wasn’t expecting to get…..to be fair I didn’t know what to expect from this episode, I saw the title and it automatically caught my attention and I became very curious to what that episode could possible be about, buuut I had to watch the other ones first because I like to watch things in order, I prefer anyway is what I’m saying!

When I did eventually get to this episode…..I for one, was super excited because I really missed watching this show, originally I searched for it on Youtube Tv because I wanted to watch the 5 day event episode titled Capture The Flag where Craig and all the other kids at the Creek we’re going to try and stop a ruler from the other side of the creek from taking over there side…..I have yet to watch that one, but I feel when I do it’s going to be quite the episode!!

Back to the Sunflower episode…..I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited to find out what story it was going to tell and let me tell you……it was an emotional one alright, like I was not prepared to get all up in my feeling with it, but I did, well I was super close, but I felt it, I felt it very deeply, I’m just realizing that if I go into the episode fully, it’s going to be a very long post, so I think I figured out what my podcast episode will be about later……me explain and giving thoughts to this episode and what my reaction was when I watched it and I’m going to give you all a disclaimer, be prepared for some energetic energy with this one, now it might not actually be like that, but just in case it is, just know you were warned…..but this was a very adorable episode and I can’t wait to talk about it in my podcast episode, seriously, I’m super excited about it lol!

Now this post will be up in a moment, however it might be scheduled to go up at a bit of a later time today in the time your reading this, so that way I can record the episode and share it on here for you guys to listen to, if by any chance, this post is seen before I get the chance to share the episode with it, just know that it will be updated with the episode added in once it’s recorded and uploaded, so stay tuned for that!! I hope you guys don’t mind the way this post is, if you’re reading it without the episode to listen to for the moment and I hope you enjoy the episode once it’s done, see you all in a couple of hours, more or less!!

Scribble Night (June 14, 2019)

I’m having a bit of trouble naming this at the moment, i’ve been staring at this trying to come up with some kind of name for it, but I don’t know what to name it…… I turned these little scribble design things into flowers because they reminded me of flowers whenever i’d look at them.

Not actual flowers of course, after finishing this here artwork creation, I was trying to figure out what kind of flower they resembled mainly the open ones, the yellow, purple and white ones)

At first I couldn’t put my finger on it, I did think of a tulip, but then I thought nooo, not quite a tulip shape, I had the image in my head, but the name of it wasn’t popping up for me…….

It took me until the next day (today) just to now know what flower it was, looking up different kinds of open flower types, it came down to two different ones, a Tulip (yeah the one I scraped away) and the California Poppy, looking into it more though, i’d say it resembles the poppy more than the Tulip……it might not be, but it was the closest to it that I could find.

Glad that’s sorted and all, however I still don’t know what to name this one……..actually wait, I might’ve come up with one right at this very moment looking at it again……I think it could work, we’ll keep it for now, but if something comes to me later that I like better, i’ll change it…….

Garden….(May 26, 2019)

I was inspired to create something, using the the word Garden, from a song I heard, it’s actually one of my all time favorite songs and it’s by an artist that i’ve mentioned before, two days ago actually…….

The artist’s name is Scott James, you might’ve heard me speak of him before with my last post where I shared my other creation themed on the word River, which is actually another song of his, Scott’s not very well known,

However he’s very talented, his music is quite unique, he always goes for a mellow calming type of music style, although he’s been coming up with different sounds for his music for a while now, i’m not used to, but i’d be lying if I said they weren’t interesting and that I didn’t like it.

He still has a bit of his original sound tangled along within the new sound he’s working with, which is good, because I really do appreciate his mellow approaches with some of his songs, they let you wander off a while when you listen to them and sometimes you need that……

Garden though, is one of those songs that you can’t help, but take in as it’s playing, it’s also pretty relaxing which is good because who doesn’t like to relax right!? Now with this creation, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, I just had the word Garden in mind and I knew I wanted to make something with it, but I just didn’t know how i’d make it……

As you can see, it’s just a small and simple little Garden, it’s got a few birds, some flowers, some critters and a little tree to it, nothing too big, but it holds up pretty nicely i’d say…….

Here’s the song that inspired this creation: Garden by Scott James

From A Bird In A Window To This…..(May 16, 2019)

I’m going to be completely honest with you here…….I don’t know what this is and I made this haha, I could tell you the backstory to this one, but just to give you a disclaimer, it’s not really a long one, in fact this here pretty much formed on it’s own…….

I had something completely different in mind, but it didn’t come together as I hoped it would, but after a bit of frustration turned calm, some tinkering to it here and there and animal crossing music, this is what flourished…….

It took 2 days for it to come out this way, but i’d say it’s quite something and I mean that in a good way, but yeah……don’t know what i’ll be naming this one, but whatever the name, i’m happy with this!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
