Social Musings 101: Clean Slate

So as I awoke this morning I realized we all wake up and start each day with a clean slate, whoever you were yesterday can be different today. If we all did one thing everyday that would take us closer to the person that we want to be then soon you’d wake up being the person that you always wanted to be. So remember no matter where you’re at in life each day (just like this blank blogging interface) you have the power to start something new or take that one step more forward in the direction of your dream or goal.

Social Musings 101: Success

Many of us don’t have our own standards of success. We let life or others tell us and have us decide what is success based upon images or ideas that sometimes (many times) aren’t our own. So whatever your ideal of success is, go to a private alone place and really sit and think about what your idea of success is. Some of you will realize you are actually wildly successful as compared to where you started off years ago. But….I mean the keep to true success is living the life that you imagined when you were a child and still doing the things that you LOVE to do into adulthood that gave you joy as a child. Well that’s about it, I hope were all living our lives this way. Have a wonderful day.

Social Musings 101: Grass Farmers

Today I wanted  to give Thanks to all the grass farmers of the world. I wanted to give thanks for the cows and sheep, and other animals that were allowed to be raised as a result of the grass farmers of the world takig the time to grow grass. I know its seems silly, but just like these farmers are an integral part of the grass ecosystem, we too all of us in our lives whether we can see it or not are apart of the ecosystem of life. On that note make one positive change in someone’s life today, if it’s buying them some food or holding the door open, at the end of the year(if you started in January) you would have over 365 acts of kindness into the world. Goodday.

Creative Director Talk: Colors

Many times when we come with creations we tend to change the color to something that fits or something that fits in with a genre or fashion or style. But if you get an idea for color schemes in your head that may or may not work. Wait, be patient, bring the idea to life and then change and alter it until it becomes what you want.

Creative Director Talk: Organized Thoughts

Many times on our quest to do different things we have many different thoughts that flow into and out of the brain. Many great ideas, sometimes those ideas come at a time when she least expect them other times a great idea will come while working on another project. So keep a pen and paaper or your cellphone handy so you can jot down the notes or ideas as they come. Sometimes these things trickle into your mind and others they flood it. If you are working on  a project when this happens don’t get mad and say why did you have to come now. Just flow it. That’s all for now.
