Life Lessons + Selling Cookies To Strangers

A recent realization I've had is that I never post about myself. I'm always posting some sad writing piece I conjured up, or some song I fell in love with. Nothing with personal depth.

Today, I've decided to change that by telling you about my recent life learnings.

+ With the start of the new month I've started many new WIP projects - as well as a business project for Nicole Rose Designs. :) I'm super excited and I hope to share some details of this with you guys later. So stay tuned! This lesson: stay focused, believe, and you will get to where you want to be.

+ It's October now and we all know what that means. Halloween! I'm super excited. I have no idea what I'm going to be. Maybe a uni-human, or perhaps a cigarette (so I can go up to people and say "Hey, look at me! I'm a metaphor!"). This lesson: be who you want to be. Express yourself.

+ Lately I've been contemplating life and the brilliant persistence it takes to live. There are so many things I've learned about me and about others, it's crazy. This world is crazy. But I love it. I'm actually really starting to love it. This lesson: Being alive is such a blessing. It's a true gift. No one should give it up.

+ On Sunday I stood in the freezing cold for over three hours, trying to sell cookies to people at a flea market. It was fun but exhausting beyond measurability. I told my mother that I should staple the bags of cookies to the inside of the coat I stole from her friend then go up to someone and be all like: "Hey, dude. *opens up coat* Yah wanna buy somethin'?" We both laughed rather hard at this. This lesson: don't be afraid to laugh at yourself.

+ School takes up so much of my time, it's rather amazing I have any energy to do other things. Of course, in the time I do have I tend to procrastinate and tell myself one more episode of Criminal Minds won't hurt. This lesson: try not to it's okay to procrastinate.

+ I want to do something spectacular. I want to start a movement. I want to inspire. I also want to know how I'm going to do that. This lesson: develop big dreams, but also develop plans for those dreams.

+ Before I end this post I just want everyone to know that the words you say or type have a great impact on people so never ever say something you don't mean or you will deeply regret it. This lesson: watch what you say. Words hurt.

I guess that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed this unusual post. Make sure you share this post because, why not? Also, check me out on tumblr, instagram, pinterest, or google plus.

Comment below with some of your own personal life lessons. :)

Until next time,

xx Nicole Rose

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
