LESSONS FROM BOWTIE'S JOURNEY - "EVERYDAY, LIFE OFFERS YOU A GIFT"

Posted on March 12 2019

ON ONE OF MY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, I CREATED AN IMAGE FOLDER CALLED “BEAUTY”.  WITHIN IT, I SHARE IMAGES THAT I FIND UTTERLY GORGEOUS AND THAT SPEAK DIRECTLY TO ME.  EACH TIME I POST AN IMAGE; I LEAVE A SHORT EXPLANATION AS TO WHY I FIND IT BEAUTIFUL.

I LOOK AT HUNDREDS OF IMAGES EVERY WEEK.  (I LOVE PINTEREST!!!)  WHY?  IN ADDITION TO FINDING INSPIRATION FOR THE NEXT BOW TIE CIGAR SHOOT, IT IS VERY THERAPEUTIC FOR ME.  BEAUTY PUTS ME IN A REALLY GREAT MENTAL SPACE.  I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR SO MANY YEARS NOW, THAT I DON’T FEEL COMPLETE WITHOUT IT.

 

EVERYDAY, LIFE OFFERS YOU A GIFT, IF YOU CHOOSE TO SEE IT.

 

FOR ME, THE GIFT OF INSPIRATION FOR MY BRAND’S GROWTH, AND MENTAL THERAPY BENEFITS, IS SOMETHING THAT HELPS TO KEEP ME FOCUSED AND GROUNDED.  WHEN I STARTED USING PINTEREST FOR IMAGES, IT WAS STRICTLY FOR THE IMAGERY.  NEVER IN MY WILDEST DREAMS DID I THINK MY LIFE WOULD BE FOREVER CHANGED AND SO POSITIVELY AFFECTED BY SUCH A SIMPLY ROUTINE.  NOW, I CANNOT SEE MY DAILY EXISTENCE WITHOUT THIS FORM OF BEAUTY.

 

 

MY SUGGESTION TO EVERYONE READING THIS POST; KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR THE GIFTS THAT LIFE OFFERS TO YOU, EVERYDAY.  ONCE YOU FIND THE ONE(S) THAT BRING SO MUCH INDIVIDUAL BENEFIT INTO YOUR EXISTENCE, EMBRACE THE HECK OUT OF THEM!  ALSO, PROTECT THEM FROM HARM.  MOREOVER, DO NOT LET ANYONE TAKE AWAY YOUR BEAUTY!  LOVED ONES MAY QUESTION WHY YOU ARE DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.  SOME OTHERS MAY FEEL INTIMIDATED BY YOUR ROUTINE, BECAUSE IT DOES NOT INVOLVE THEM.  HENCE, THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT.  I CAN ONLY OFFER THE SUGGESTION TO “DO YOU”.  MY PERSONAL MENTAL HEALTH IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE.  IF THE UNIVERSE HAS PROVIDED A GIFT TO ME, I INTEND TO RECEIVE IT.  IF SOMEONE ELSE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND, THAT’S A PERSONAL MATTER FOR THEM TO PERSONALLY DEAL WITH.

 

IN CLOSING, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SHARE THAT MY PATH AND DECISIONS ARE MINE…BOWTIE’S.  I CHOOSE TO SHARE THEM BECAUSE OTHER’S MAY FIND A SMALL BENEFIT IN HEARING ANOTHER PERSON’S APPROACH TO DEALING WITH LIFE.  MY SPECIFIC APPROACH MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE.  MY SUGGESTION IS SIMPLY TO FIND THE GIFTS LIFE HAS FOR YOU AND EMBRACE THEM.  HOW YOU GO ABOUT DOING SO, IS SOLELY UP TO YOU.

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.
