Thoughtsoftheday: Some laws and rules were meant to be broken.

Hello, everyone and good evening to you all. Today’s Thoughts of the Day is: It is sometimes okay for us to break certain unjustifiable rules and laws that go against the betterment of people’s lives. Sometimes it is necessary for people to break rules and laws when you know deep down  something is wrong. Even, if the masses are against you and you are standing alone, you would still be willing to fight for what you believe in. Continue reading

WritingRelatedFridays: An inspirational quote (tip) for aspiring writers

Hello, everyone and good evening to you all. My Writing Related Fridays post is going to be especially short today. I just wanted to place this quote here for all my aspiring fellow poets, writers and bloggers out there. Read the quote below and please let it sink in:

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.”
– Barbara Kingsolver 

Even as a writer, I must keep this in mind as well. I believe that this is because once you try to figure out what you think someone might want to hear, you lose your originality and what makes you different from the rest.

Honestly, anyone can become a writer. It greatly depends on how much is their desire to write and what you have to offer.

 

Thoughtsoftheday: Trying New Things

The Thoughts of the Day this wonderful Wednesday evening is trying new things. It is always good to try new things and get out of one’s comfort zone. If we remain in our comfort zones we will never grow. Although at times it is good to specialise in a particular field however for self-growth it also requires change. We cannot expect to move forward if we remain in the same spot. In the end, we will become stagnant and no one wants that, right?

As I write, I am also trying to get out of my comfort zone because I am trying to explore what it means to be an entrepreneur (for my brand Angie’s Inspiration). It is an area that I do not particularly enjoy because I am a creative person after all. 😀

I am also venturing into  designing some of my own artwork and putting them on apparel. So, check out my Threadless Artist Shop to see what I have got so far. And if you think my art designs interests you enough to buy them, then feel free to also do so.

So, next time you think of trying something new that is not within your comfort zone, give it a go! You would be surprised with how much you can learn and how much you can grow by trying new things. Take care and have a nice day.

 

WritingRelatedFridays: Women who dress a certain way are “Asking for it”

Hello, everyone! Having a great day? Me, too. 🙂

Apparently, there are some people claiming women who dress a certain way are “asking for it”.  I can never understand this whenever I hear people saying such things. They even have the nerve to say that when it is a young and innocent child being sexual abuse or accosted.

It does not matter whether a woman is fully clothed or not, they still get attacked and it is still her fault. It seems no matter what a woman wears or does it is always going to be her fault for: Continue reading

WhatisAngieuptoMondays: I want to become more passionate.

When you read the title the word, passionate, is not what you may be thinking. What I mean when I say passionate is that I want to become more passionate with my goals, ambitions and what I aspire to be. The things I did initially as a hobby and continue to do as a hobby, I like doing it but I would not say I am per se burning with passion for it as others may expect.

I want to be able to do some things that I do without ever thinking it is a chore. I want to get to the point that I am so passionate about what I do, that no matter how many times I do it or no matter how may times I fail, I will still be very passionate about it and continue doing it.
