I started Up Close Creative Co. with journals because journaling is something I get weirdly excited about. It's been a part of my routine for so long that it's hard to believe there are people who don't do it. I know not everyone does, but I wish they did!

I want people to know what a good tool it is that can be used in SO many ways! To name a few, self care, and self discovery, getting clarity, setting goals, memory keeping, problem solving, and just like, venting.

For me, it's the best way to clear my head of negative junk so I can focus on whatever I need to and not carry anxious feelings, or a crabby attitude into the day.

So, I started with journals because I want to talk about journaling and get people excited about it! Maybe more people don't do it because they don't know how great it is. Or maybe they don't do it because they don't think they have time, or they don't know how, or where to start, or they feel silly doing it, or maybe it just never crossed their mind. I don't know. You tell me! Do you keep a journal? If so, what do you love about it? If not, what's stopping you?

The beauty and the healing you get from putting pen to paper is so over looked, I tell most, if you feel you can't communicate with people write it, release it, and take the pressure off yourself of holding on to it carrying it round like a weight on your shoulders... I record, write and release most days, I put my heart into the pages the good times the bad times the positivity the grief... memories are a powerful thing one day when my family is complete, I will look back read the pages and remember just how far we've come.... 💙💫 #healing #copingwithloss #copingwithgrief #fertility #fertilityjourney #memories #journaling #pentopaper #releasingmythoughts #puttingitoutthere #copingskills #throatchakra #holisticliving #lightfromdarkness #positivity #beleiveinyourself #youcandoit #pain #doubts #dreams #desires #mistakes #capturingtheday

You've got a lot on your plate. 
Things see to be flying around you. 
You're stress eating again. 
Your workouts suck or aren't happening. 
Your energy levels are low. 
You're on edge and grumpy. 
This isn't you!
So what's going on?

Grab the nearest paper and pen, and dump. 
Dump your brain. 
Dump your stress. 
Dump your fear. 
And if you want to, let me know!
Let's figure this out!

I needed to do a bit of work on my short to medium-term priorities, and I have just bought a new set of coloured Uni-Ball Eye  Pens, so it seemed silly not to add a bit of colour to my To Do list....😂

"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns." Philippians 1:6 📖 The world around us looks at labels and credibility; and often, that makes us feel like we have to "arrive" at something, or somewhere, in order to be considered a "full-circled" human being (or even a successful one). But, "SHE IS FAM", that cycle may work in outward, surface level business, but it does not apply to us spiritually. 🍂 If we decide to think that who we are today is the full manifestation of our true identity; stamping our heart with the seal of "good, fully functioning with no issue" prematurely, we miss the opportunity to go to depths with God that are unimaginable to our minds and limitations; making permanent the things that God wants to remove. Don't cripple yourself! 🍂 Cease the moment to become closer to God! Let Him bring you to unknown depths, to unrecorded heights! Choose to not self-diagnose what your God-given identity looks like, or what a healthy, pure heart looks like; but say to Jesus, "I will not be blinded by opinion or comfort; and always be guided by Your wisdom, Your will, Your love, Your grace, and Your mercy." Stay pliable; be soft and moldable for Him, and Him alone. Tag a sistah friend who needs to be reminded of this truth 👇🏽{Sweet tee: from our equally sweet sistah @shophappies love you girlll!} . . . #sheisidentified #fallgirlatheart #september #iamasurvivor #iamenough #bibleverse #hopespoken #bethevoice #sheisvictorious #bedeeplyrooted #womanofGod #womanonamission #tyj #kingdomkid #cagednomore #scripturewriting #jesusjesusjesus solovelysofree #liveauthentic #chasinglight #setapart #wordgirl #spreadthegospel #ptl #instawriter #pentopaper #writeitout #forhisglory #amen

My blog's been on a long snooze in the last couple of months and it's resurfacing with something a little personal that I think many can relate to:
•frustrating jobs, unhappy life phases and what to do about them.

I actually prepared another post and then found this draft sitting at the back of my blog which miraculously describes everything I was summing up in the new one. Talk about circles.

May this be your reflective lunch read and don't forget to take on your responsibility

Today I’m going to start a new writing project - something much bigger than I have ever tried before. .
I’m not sure how long it will take me, or whether it will be any good once I’ve finished, but unless I start, I’ll never know. .
Whatever the goal, there’s always something we don’t know, or don’t have, and we just have to trust that we’ll pick things up along the way. .
If you start today, it might take months or years to complete that idea of yours, but if you never even start, well, you know just how long it will take then, don’t you….?

This is such a fitting quote since I love listening to the Harry Potter audio books while I'm painting and drawing. This definitely applies to any creative venture. Hopefully sharing this today gives someone else the much needed boost it gave me! 📚

☆☆DAILY AFFIRMATIONS☆☆ Affirmations are extreamly powerful! They make us radiate POSITIVE VIBES which I absolutely love 🤗🤩

Afflictions eclipsed by glory. Oh how He loves me. @diankamac brought this special heart shaped rock to me during my last surgery at Hershey. She’s taught me to slow down and #keepasharpeye because God is always in the details. This hand lettered St. Augustine quote was a gift from @mikaelaine_ , a dear girl who knows about affliction and points me to His dazzling light in the dark. These are my treasures. I unpacked my #pentopaper today. Snail mail is coming to so many of you. We are made for relationship. To know and be known.

New three post story series 📖 Part 3:
.
“How did she figure it out?”
.
“There is one main gate in and out of the community. My wife and I were in the car together going somewhere and without thinking, I turned right instead of left, and then she knew.”
.
“The widow lived to the right…?”
.
“Yes,” Leo says.
.
“Wow.  Woman’s intuition,” I say.
.
The widow had been between Leo and his wife for a long time. Now Leo and his wife faced the long daily commute to the same building but Leo’s wife thought it best they take separate cars.  She didn’t want to be around him. “What did you do?” I ask.
.
“I convinced her that we should ride together.  And that for those three hours each day, the only thing we would talk about would be our marriage and the issues between us.”
.
For months Leo and his wife did just that.  On their three-hour car rides their lifetime together was under review. They went through everything, beginning at the beginning, hashing it all out. “And what happened?” I ask. “Did it work?”
.
“Yes, it did,” Leo said. “We forgave each other and fell back in love.  Some of our last years together were our best.”
.
Leo’s story settles in with me and I decide that it might be one of the most mature, most beautiful love stories I’ve ever heard.  Two people refusing to give up on each other, two people fighting their way back to love.  Forgiveness.  And I look at Leo and find myself wondering -- who needed this coffee more -- him or me?

About five years ago I went on my first solo trip to Boracay, Philippines💙 Up until this point I had always preferred experiencing new adventures with others. This time felt different✨ I felt driven to discover and explore on my own. I was nervous but also felt giddy and excited like on a first date☺️ .
.
On the first night, I walked past a reggae bar on the beach a couple times before I had the courage to walk in, buy a drink, and sit my ass down🤷🏻‍♀️ Within minutes I made new friends! The next day, I took myself to a nice dinner and noticed another girl eating my herself. I approached her, we got chatting and then she her bf and I went for drinks and we ended up adopting another solo traveler🚶🏼‍♂️Like a chain reaction, I kept connecting with more beautiful souls. Side note ➡️ I learned that traveling solo allows energy to flow so much more freely than when you are traveling with others. This energy is young, organic, compassionate and brave. .
.
By the next morning, I definitely needed some “me time.” I soaked in the elements, people watched, nourished my body with coconut water, studied a bit, took pictures, and went on discovering myself in all the newness🐬📸📖☀️🌊 At one point, I caught my waiter stealing my phone and survival mode kicked in 🧠 I could have reported him but I made the wiser, safer, and more compassionate choice🧘🏻‍♀️I told him I understood why he tried to steal my phone, lectured him a bit☝🏼, grabbed my phone and off I went onto my next adventure💃🏻
.
.
In summary, there were moments throughout my trip that completely took my breath away and I didn’t feel like anything or anyone was missing🙌🏼 I truly fell in love with my resilience, resourcefulness and free spirit💓 I felt guided and supported by God and my higher self. When I look back at the solo trips that have followed, I am proud that I took that first leap🙏🏼Take the leap! Work through the discomfort and discover parts of yourself that you’ll fall in love with. I’m a daughter, therapist, sister, and play many roles in between but who I am without the titles is pretty kickass, too 🙋🏻‍♀️ swipe ⬅️ for photos

In summary, there were moments throughout my trip that completely took my breath away and I didn’t feel like anything or anyone was missing🙌🏼 I truly fell in love with my resilience, resourcefulness and free spirit💓 I felt guided and supported by God and my higher self. When I look back at the solo trips that have followed, I am proud that I took that first leap🙏🏼Take the leap! Work through the discomfort and discover parts of yourself that you’ll fall in love with. I’m a daughter, therapist, sister, and play many roles in between but who I am without the titles is pretty kickass, too 🙋🏻‍♀️ swipe ⬅️ for photos

Many people have already read the lovely Ms @nutmeg_and_maplesyrup  poem about a person asking how does she feel. Well I was so inspired I wrote a response to it. Swipe ⬅️⬅️⬅️ to read her beautiful poem
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How do I feel?
You asked me, “how did I feel today?”
I replied, “ okay good”. That wasn’t a good enough answer for you.By looking at me, my facial expressions wasn’t matching up with the words that I was saying. So you told me to dig deeper, and that’s exactly what I did.  I feel like my world is coming to end, because the one I loved made the choice to sin. I feel like I’m fighting a war by myself, because I was made to believe that I had no one else. I feel like my anxiety has gain control of my life. I feel like I lost my fucking mind. The funny thing is, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of how I feel. Now you’re looking at me in shocked and disbelief. You’re looking at me like maybe you should just leave..... but you don’t. You embrace in your arms and held me close.  You whispered, “ everything is going to be okay.I promise that you have a new friend that will never stray. I promise you that you have a new friend, to support you through your stormy days. I promise that I am here to stay.” I never imagined, so many emotions can come from a person asking a simple question. But I guess that’s what happens, when you have a person that tries to hide their depression. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life happens. There are ups and downs. Whether it's good or bad news somethings are meant for your information only.

Don't let the world know your every move. Some of the experiences, lessons and blessings are specifically designed to help you as you grow through your life journey.

As you go through your day begin to take note of who you are sharing with. You'll be surprised at the insight you get when you intentionally take a moment to reflect on how them being in your life affects you.

The Art of Fiction
The writer in order to achieve mastery must read widely and deeply and must write not just carefully but continually,....
Ernest Hemingway, who is quoted as having said that the way for a writer to learn his craft is to go away and write.

You are called by God.
You have a unique purpose in the world and a place in His heart. 
He wants to see you win.
You are celebrated by heaven. 
And you are loved without strings, conditions, or a scorecard. 
Believe it. Receive it. And go into the world brave because you’re backed, knowing only you can do what you’re called to today.
