The English Introvert

I tried to do some art without thinking too much. My husband likes that these are less representational than usual and more abstract. https://renminds.org/2020/03/25/neo-apocalyptic-dust-mites/ liked the idea as he had done something similar so here is a link to his work.

CMN = Contemplating My Navel

Half way through the X-mas break and my To Do list of nonsense is expanding beyond reason. Turns out, I've only been contemplating my navel. In about a week, my 21-week series on daily quotes will come to an end and I frankly have no clue what I've learned from the process. Partly because I … Continue reading CMN = Contemplating My Navel

Driving by I spied out of the corner of my eye, this quiet lady, sitting prim and proper on a hill. Her land had been farmed, ready for the blanket of snow that would soon cover the sleeping fields.

I couldn’t pass her by, I found a place to turn around, and made my way up the hill.

Instead of beating yourself up for the things you cannot do take time to appreciate everything you have already achieved. The constant urge to better yourself leads to you forgetting what you are capable of as you are always striving to fix yourself.

2. Realize that the things others may be thinking about you is the reflection of what you think about yourself. “I bet they cannot stand me, they think I am not cool” These thoughts are…
