Well, I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve written. I also know that I said there was going to be changes coming to this blog and to my Facebook page. I do intend to make the changes I just haven’t gotten there yet. Really I’m thinking that my farm page is going to start carrying a bunch of things for sale including the art of Mississippi picture girl. I’m in the experimental stages right now.
When you do anything big and make big changes there comes a certain fear with it. What if people don’t like what I have? What if nothing I have sells? What if I put myself out there and it’s a flop? These are all things that I have thought of. They’ve gone round and round in my mind and I don’t really think there’s a good answer. Part of the reason I have been so slow to put anything up for sale, is just that fear. It’s also been kind of crazy coming back from vacation this time. my guys are not home as much anymore. And so everything is kind of left to me. Also, I’m suffering or dealing with being out of alignment, and so that’s been causing me some pain. I am getting that fixed hopefully, on Sunday. My boys and I are making the drive to go see my sister-in-law who is a chiropractor and hopefully she will snap me back together and I can move on down the road. One thing I know for absolute certain, if your spine is out of alignment it drastically affects your ability to function. If it is Out then, everything is messed up. I’m telling you my foot is going numb now. I just let it go too long and now I have to get it fixed. But, one of my resolutions was about being fit. going to the gym every day is kind of taking a backseat right now because I don’t want to injure myself further. Also, I’m getting A yoga trapeze to hopefully alleviate the need for running to the chiropractor all the time. Inversion therapy is well known and widely accepted. Plus, it’s just fun anyway so all of that has been going on.
I honestly have not taken nearly as many pictures as I would’ve liked to. Part of that, has been the weather it has rained almost every day I could’ve adventured when I wasn’t busy. So there’s that too. At the end of the day, I know it sounds like I’m making excuses. And I guess I am. There is a woman that I work with and she decided to just say fuck it and follow her dreams and things are unfolding so amazingly for her I’m so proud of her and so happy for her she is doing an amazing job if you get a chance, heading over to Facebook and check out her store or online store, it’s it’s called The Gypsy’s Moon. Basically what she does is she takes old jewelry and she sees something in it and turns it into something totally new and totally fabulous. In fact, because She took a chance, a piece of her jewelry is being worn by someone in London. I just think this woman is amazing anyway. However it just goes to show what can happen and here I sit still mired in my own insecurities and a little bit of fear. Wondering what i am doing, and scared to start doing what I know I should be doing. What I would absolutely love to be doing. And there she is doing what she needs to do to follow her dream. I need to take a lesson from that. everything I tell you about following your dreams and just going for it I need to stop and take a lesson from that. And any rate I wish her nothing but the best she totally not worth it and makes amazing stuff.
Changes, my life’s been full of them however once I get settled down a little bit and figure out exactly what I’m going to do with my ours, Boondock farms Facebook page will sell the art of Mississippi picture girl. That is coming. I am going to figure out just how I want it displayed, get my shit in order, and start putting it up for sale. Of course I want to make a profit on it, and I would love for that to be my full-time gig, however I just want people to be able to enjoy the things that I create to be able to see the world the way I see it sometimes. I’m not saying that my way is best, I’m just saying that sometimes it doesn’t hurt to look at something from a different point of view. If you can take a point of view home with you, well, that’s all the better.
One thing I will let you know, is that I will do better at letting you guys know what I’ve been up to. Let me get back into alignment on Sunday, so that I can feel like a normal person again instead of this person that is going to break at any minute, and will get back in the swing of things. It’s really time to take down, rather break down the last wall that’s holding me back from doing what I want to do. It’s a wall of my own making my own insecurities, my own self consciousness, and it’s time to let it go. That’s never easy. And it takes more than a day or so, but like I always say, never begin a journey until you take that first step. I’ve taken a lot of first steps already this year. the key to any journey is to continue making those first steps. Just keep going, and don’t give up. I know that’s what I’m trying to do. Until next time, I hope you have an amazing day. And here are a couple of pictures that I have shot over the last month or so.
