Reasons and Justifications For Bullshit!

“Reasons”
Written by Salkis Re
 
Yeah we create them.
These elaborate excuses for why we can’t do this or that.
And these “thoughts” become “beliefs” as you because you start to design your entire life around them.
Sometimes, most times, you will say it’s because:
your mother was fucked up,
or you don’t have enough education,
or you’re not pretty enough,
or that you are set in your ways,
or you don’t have enough time,
or you need more training,
or you can’t find anyone to help you,
or you don’t have enough money.
 

But all those are is reasons, not truths.

Why?
Because you find money for the outfit, and you find the friends to wear it with, and the time to hang out with them,
and you research where to you go, and you place your time,
effort and money into what your perception says with will bring you immediate joy.
 

REASONS are elaborate thoughts based on fear and laziness,

and as you repeat them, you create the energy of justification behind them.
So here is the deal. I want you to see your reasons for NOT doing a thing as inverted ambition.
Yes. Inverted ambition.
Why?

Because you created these reasons to STOP yourself from trying or doing or being.

These are carefully crafted thoughts that you have DECIDED is your truth, and this took work to do too.
Now, what you want to do is the opposite of this in terms
of crafting reasons why you SHOULD do a thing that you have always wanted to do.
Why should you many 6 figures a year?
Why SHOULD you have an awesome relationship?
What are the reasons you can find to live the life of your dreams

“Forever Best Friends”
Written by Salkis Re

True friendship is like a flower that grows at the spring of each second season.
For us to share and give each other care,
needs no particular reason.

Her concern for you is shown when she gives you her lollipops,
and you return the favor when she asks you to play another fun game of hopscotch.

And we sip the Kool-Aid and eat sweet things that pop and fizz in our mouths,
And we vow yet again to be friends forevermore, just as we are right now..

Sometimes I like to write my thoughts in poetry form. It helps me perge my emotions in a safe, yet entertaining way.

Hobbies are important for emotional balance, and I feel that it is necessary ,for sanity purposes, to have something you do just for yourself.

Holiday season is upon us now and it’s a somber time for a lot of people.

Tokeep you from slumping down, I suggest you engage in something creative to occupy your mind. An idle mind will always lean towards depression and artificial stimulants for distraction and self pity.

Don’t be that type of woman.

Life is a flash in the pan respective to time, and it will all be over soon enough. In the mean time, color your world with your love. Express yourself in a way that makes your heart flutter. Whatever it is that gets your juices flowing, do exactly that.

Me?

Well I like old things.

Antebellum homes and rustic scenes.

I like anything “yesterday”, anything with that retro feel. Like Loud wall paper patterns and plastic couch covers.

I wish my body could still handle sugar cause I sure would love a tall glass of that strawberry flavored Nestle Quick right now!

I miss Double Dutch and Red Light-Green- Light-123.

That’s my cozy place.

I just abhor modern.

I love the smell of old books too.

Find your peace.

Find your type of solace or excitement..

Peace and Love

Artists Shaming ME, Another Artist: YIKES!

 

Facebook Group Flunkies

So this has been an interesting few days. I have been scolded in a few facebook art groups for the commentary that usually accompanies my artwork. I have never been an artist to just post a pic of my work with the measurements and a buy now link at the bottom of it. That is fuvking boring and it doesn’t stimulate emotions like words along with work do.

No Why NO WAY!

But I understand that this is my way of doing things, this is my “style” and I get it: I LOVE IT! But my problem is when the admins of these groups tell me how I ‘should’ present my work. I was told recently that I should just stick to art instead of writing a “book” length post because the opinion was that I didn’t write well enough to lend relevance to my work.

BIHHHHHHHHHH! lllmao. It is always these washed up, non visionary artists that want to lend critique on the way an artist should present their work. My art started because I wanted to illustrate a book I was writing, so I would have never picked up a brush if I didn’t have a need to ‘write” something. But I’m thankful this happened though, because it forced me to audit my time and where I was dispersing my energies, and booooooy was I wasting time “entertaining” people who really didn’t care for my words.

 

I think this is a sign that I’m getting better at orchestrating my words though, the fact that I’m making people’s skin crawl  with what means that they are tasting the bitter medicine of truth. I tell my fans that they have to develop a thick skin. Yes. You have to grow armor and not give a fuvk what people think: especially people who have nothing and who’s lives offer little to no fuvking semblance of where you aspire to be.

Naked in Stilettoes

If you want to show off your artwork while twirling a baton in stilettos and a see-through tu-tu , then DO IT! Seriously though, you got to know the “why” behind what you do or you will drift with every insinuation these forking losers can muster up while they take a break from their miserable lives. I am invested in my success as an artist,  and exposing all the dimensions of myself with the world. AND meeting the people who show tangible appreciation for what it is I do is the mission..

Listen, make you voice heard. Do your art with passion and curiosity to make yourself better with each canvas you paint on. Insecurity is the demon to slay. Insecurity affects you physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and all the other ALLY’s I left out.

DO YOU!!

The Farce of Romance


www-iloveherart-com-2

I love..love. I think romance is the juice that runs through the veins of all relationships. Its makes people crave each other, makes them want to fuck and give gifts and procreate. Romance and love, people think they are the same.

But they are not.

Love needs no entertaining, it’s a feeling you have when you don’t have to speak to each other. It’s a comfort that comes from just being in the space you room as the person you care about.

Yeah.

Love is ‘care’ it’s a deep concern for the person you are sharing your life with. It’s those kisses he wants even before you’ve brushed your teeth. It’s the encouragement she knows you need without you even saying a word. Love becomes instinctive when you care deeply about a person.

Romance is beguiling

Smiling…. But romance.. Romance is beguiling. It encourages feelings that you may not want to feel. It ‘creates’ emotional, coaxes them to the surface. Romance confuses all logic. He may not be good for you, but he feels good to you kind of a thing.

We all want to tune out or turn off reality at times, romance obliges that need with pleasurable escapes. Get-ways from responsibilities back home. You can have another  life for a night or maybe a whole weekend where there is all this good food you didn’t have to cook and fucking in a bed you don’t have to make up.

It would be beautiful to have both though!

All the things you want to hear are said, true or not they may be, but the honesty in it all is not a requirement for romance to pull off without a hitch.  It would be beautiful to have both though. But it would mean that you have to be close and then a little vague too. To push and pull each other in order to make things feel new.

The etymology of the word Romance is defined as:

recite; composition in vernacular; verse narrative

In other words, it’s a pleasurable story, a language of niceties, verbal entertainment 

Me? Well, I don’t want your kiss as a gesture of good manners, I want the I’ve missed you kiss. But you have to actually miss me to be able to kiss me like that. Separate rooms maybe? Go see me mom for a month? Fuck you in another country? Awwwwww lol My vagina jumped for the latter option!

Baking Cakes So He Can Break Bread!

Those women that tell you that you can do without, are themselves doing WITH and laugh as that ransack your house while they steal the spoils of war. This aggression makes us diseased, angry for no reason, it bloats our binge-eating bellies and hurries us to our graves.

We must let go.

We must let go of what we think is power and ignite what is actually power. Men take orders, they don’t give them. They need a purpose and a reason to strive or they’ll fall back in their beer stained easy chairs sweating out piss from their foreheads while they wonder all the “what if’s” of life. His purpose should be to please you and keep you safe. This is what he’s designed to do. If you play your part, your role will not wear him out, it will strengthen him and make him sharper still. Be a woman through and true woman.


I’m talking about being in expectation, NOT neediness

I’m designed to receive and when i’m not receiving, i’m not thriving. Getting your own is good but it doesn’t satisfy like being given does. There are parts of me that are off limits to everyone, those parts require my energy alone, and we all should have an off limit side to keep the mind mentally balanced. Being needy is an example of an unbalanced woman. I’m talking about being in expectation, NOT neediness; there is a difference in results and a difference in respect for each of those. Become a woman who expects the best from your man. You can make do if you’re by yourself. Wink!

Shadow Boxing, But You Can’t Win

I don’t thinking arguing is effective to get one’s point across. Though I do get my panties in a bunch when I hear someone trying to indoctrinate me with their foolery, I have been exercising great care in responding emotionally to every shit stirrer that crosses my path. I have to say I feel more empowered by my silence than in any illusionary win I could have created with my foot stomping banter. I don’t think I’m physically designed for that anyway. I’m one of those that loses her voice after a view minutes irateness, so I guess I was born to keep the peace. So my advice to you ladies is exert your energy where it can be utilized in the most beneficial way possible.

And I want you to understand that people do the things they do because they want to, you can’t guilt someone into changing their character. That my darlings is something I would tell my younger self if I could. I thought my pleas could change hearts, but it halted offenses long enough for your guard to diminish, and then the offense was committed again. Now, I am not saying that you shouldn’t address the ills that affect your life, you most certainly need to be on record so no one can throw the ignorance card in your face. But should you find yourself repetitive in the beseechment of his mercy and good doings, then you have an issue in that person that was probably created shortly after he was weaned from his mother’s breast.

Find a way to cope or cut your loses and move on. Think your moves through, twist them, reorder them, picture possible results, and if your ok with what could potentially happen then move on it and let the chips fall. Time and your body are the two priceless things you have,and one of them in nonrenewable and the other has an expiration date. Live your life… It’s Yours….
