Inspire Your Heart With Art

I know the calendar says "Big Wigs" but honestly I don't wear them and know next to nothing about them so why bother? I know most of the time I would be curious and go looking, I just don't want to today.

Art is a fundamental part of the creative. Without art we would have few inspirations for things we want to try. All creatives know if you don't feed your mind the heart goes out of your work. That is true, I have experienced long periods where I made nothing because I could conceive of nothing. Always something in my life usually a wave of anger or sadness would lead me back into the creative side of my being demanding to be expressed somehow. Sometime I would get a commission like the bat houses that demanded me to create and sometimes that helps too.

I don't go looking for commissions but sometimes I need a deadline to get the creative neurons moving again. I used to collect images, a library if you like of styles, colours etc that would catch my eye. I don't do that any more but I am thinking it might be a good idea to start a new one. Maybe another Pinterest ID just to hold inspiration like the one I have for crafts and upcycling. I can always delete the one I use for my ToDo stuff and rework it but I think I would rather not. There are a lot of pins on that board that I refer to quite a bit.

Be Aware & Dare! Inspire your heart with art today!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
