FAITO! and happy Tattoo Tuesday kawaii creative family ^.^ I’m swinging thru with a quickie from my Hobonichi … my get sh!t done mantra for 2020 ~
But first! Lookey loo who’s booking for Jan – March 2020 <3
Just hit up Little INKPLAY Shop to set dat thang up!
Do you have one to carry you through greatness this year?
My 2020 Mantra
is simply trust your process.
And see it through ~
I chewed on her q in preparation for my Kwanzaa Challenge and decided that faith (Imani) is where I’ve had the most lesson.
It’S the very last Kwanzaa principle and the foundation for everything else. Thedriver, as I call it ^.^ Helping to put everything else in order.
I’ve given everything over to the universe, sharing all of my wishes, hopes and loft a$$ dreams.(They are really fcukin’ lofty too *ugh*)
And the way I seem to utilize faith is I know I want and usually have an idea of how I would like it to work out. But then I have to pretty much give over to the universe to take the wheel ~
You have to have a lot of faith and that becomes the driver for actually making success in your creative entrepreneurship business, in my personal opinion.
And in talking faith, you also have to take a moment to define what it actually means for you.
For me for this year, even though faith is my name (Imani) it doesn’t mean I’m good at this thing. I have to practice at it, much like everyone else.
I am learning to better trust my process ~
Proof’s in the Pudding
I’ve learned and seen that overtime when I’m in dark spaces, I create some of the most beautiful things. My brain seems to goes on autopilot.
And I’m never really much worried about making sure I get work done. (unless I’m that off that I can’t tattoo – that affects someone else’s time & money which is a whole other beast of pressure 😅) But what I’m trying to say is that I seem to trust this process. So why not embrace it ~
Cuz realistically, as I learn new things as a business owner, I’m going to have to learn that everything has its own process. Which means that everything in terms of life and learning the process is going to have its own journey. 🤷🏾♀️ And I’m just gonna have to trust the process – to trust the art. The journey. And know that as long as my nose is to the grindstone … eventually … I’ll get to the destination.
I’m writing a book – my memoir. And on my way to becoming an author.
Actually. scratch that. I wrote the book. It’s done. But even within this journey, every step is its own process and I’m learning a shit ton of new thins – about myself, my story and a new skillset. But it also means hi anxiety! So I dangle my intentions in front of me as a reminder that we’re actually going to make it.
I’ll be learning a lot of new things while I’m actually putting in more work and getting a lot of things done.
So I really just want to make sure I trust the process.
And see it through!
