The 360 Phenomenon

Do you ever feel like something is gradually getting harder to do because you're not in the same place you were when you first started it?


Every month or few months I get into this phase I'm going to call a "Drudge". In this this 1 to 3 week phase, which can further be divided into 3 parts, I become a real drudgery to be around. I become lost—emotionally, spiritually, mentally and sometimes physically (part 1). I realize that I'm lost and needy so I cry about it, flail and talk myself down while trying to fix the problem at the same time (part 2).

Then: divine intervention (part 3).
The one thing my mind needed to calm down or my heart needed to be brought back into reality or my worries needed to be relieved is said, read, realized or remembered.

And it's like I'm being reborn.
I shed the skin of doubt and inner betrayal and I see the world with a fresher perspective. I reevaluate, adjust and replenish. The weight of the world falls from my shoulders and I become a weightless being that can no longer be held back by what anyone—including myself—thinks.

I'm pleased to report that my part 3 just revitalized me just two nights ago.

I can't give you a process. I can't give you the steps to recreating the same experience or the instruction manual of guaranteed success. But I can say this.

There's something about a dance party with other people that multiplies the fun by three million. (And not to mention reawakens the soul.)

This week I encourage you to wake up and see the world with a different perspective. Shift your mindset. Expand your love. Deepen your forgiveness. Share stories, laugh, cry and please—if you can bear this, you can bear everything: live. Live beyond your own understanding and capacity. Love foe things greater than yourself.

Do. Be. Create.

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.
