2019 What Are You Expecting

We are in the second week of 2019, I decided to wait before putting anything out because at the beginning of every year you hear what are your goals for the new year or what resolutions did you make.

Everyone has the best of intentions at the start of a new year but by February those goals have disappeared because life some how changed the path you were on.

Right now you have thousands of people wondering how they are going to pay their monthly expenses because the government is shut down and people are working and not being paid. So life just changed everyone’s goals for the new year.

The one thing I would like to offer for your consideration is “every storm has an ending”. When you get to the brick wall like you may be right now breath, step back and reset.

Ask yourself “What do you expect of 2019.

Be sure to follow me on Anchor.fm/chinue-phillips for #ArtistMotivationalMonday to get your week started.

We are excited about the new year and hope you will travel with us on this journey of art. Share, leave a comment, follow, and signup for our email list.

Story Telling: What Happen Yesterday

Yesterday I woke up feeling OK but as the day progressed I came to realize how we as humans are programmed and mentally conditioned for these holidays. Even if you chose not to be involved there will always be someone who will wish you a “Happy” what ever the holiday is.

Why does everyone assume you spent time with family or friends. Why do they assume you attended a church service.

These holidays are man made and the only profit is retail sales with people feeling guilty so they buy gifts.

So as I asked the question “What happen yesterday” I respond with nothing happen it was just another day.

Thanks for following and supporting the blog. Join us on Periscope for #ArtistMotivationalMonday 11am PST.

Inktober2017 Day 4 Underwater

I’m getting the hang of this, we are on day 4 which is Underwater.  Sometimes the day to day issues can make you feel you are Underwater but always know things that you see are subject to change.
