Expression // 016

I just realize I haven't post an Expression on here in several weeks... Oops.

Here's today's Expression. I created a video to go along with it, and because it's my first real video, I'd like to say don't be too hard on me. I'm learning this video thing as I go. ;)

This is you.

This is you.

You are good.

You are whoever you've been made to be.

You like what you like, and you are who you are.

Sometimes, you feel happy. Other times, you feel sad. Sometimes, you feel nothing at all.

That's okay.

Sometimes bad things happen. People say mean things, it rains on your picnic, your dog gets shot. Maybe you don't pass an important test, you get fired from your job, or things just aren't looking up right now.

That's okay.

Maybe you're having a really stinky day. Your partner is being a jerk, the sun is just not shining, you can't find your favorite purple pen and everything is going WRONG!

That's okay.

Because you are you.

And what happens to you, and what you do, does NOT define you.

Life is poopy. Life stinks, hurts, turns you upside down and makes you scream. Life has a tendency to make people cry.

But life is also great. Life is amazing. Life is living your dream and following your heart. Life is the good and the bad, and without life, there is no YOU.

Life can get crazy, but when you get through the hard times, the badness, the icky, you come out stronger, brighter, and newer.

This is you.

You are good enough.

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.
