I’m not really sure what it is but I am not feeling the whole "be active" thing today. I was supposed to get up today and go for a run before my dental appointment but I just couldn’t get out of bed for the life of me. I think I am just having one of those slumps and I know I will get out of it in a few days. I just have to keep pushing and moving forward. I’m sure everyone has these days and I am not the only one. It just puts the things you had in mind on hold for the time being. Today is an easy day and that is ok. There’s a lot going on but I’m not going to push it or complain about it. 

In the meantime I do ask that you guys check out my stuff and see what you do and don’t like. A few pieces had to be taken down because of Midnight destroying them and for that I do apologize. I have learned my lesson and no longer will be putting pieces within his reach. I just hope that I can keep him away from my artwork and that he doesn’t figure out how to open doors or it’s going to get tricky. 

As always I appreciate you guys and I am sorry I haven’t had any stories lately. It’s been a weird time and I am just trying to keep moving forward. I have a YouTube channel that posts videos every other week and I have an Instagram where I post pictures and get a little personal with my life. My name is sarah_and_spice and you can totally check it out and follow along for daily posts. I quite enjoy talking to my followers so definitely check it out and follow along. 

Thank you guys and stay tuned for what is coming.

I’m not sure if it’s because of stress or if he is mostly an asshat but this morning I walked out of my room and into the front room. This is a place that acts a little like a storage area as well as a display area for my pieces. I have mostly canvas pieces but I do have three or four pieces that are made on poster board. On the floor of the front room is midnight, lying on top of one of my pieces which is completely shredded. This isn’t the first time he has done it, it’s the second time. So because of this upsetting moment I took all my poster board pieces down and put them in my closet where Midnight can't reach them. I sincerely hope that keeps him from destroying more of my artwork. 

Its super frustrating to have this happen to a piece that I really loved and a piece that I had high hopes for but I think it just gave me a push to remake it on a canvas instead. So that is what I am going to do. I’m pretty upset by this and I really think that it struck a chord with me to have it happen not only once but, twice. 

I will be remaking the piece, it will go up for sale and it will be on a canvas. With all that in mind I do hope you guys will be patient with me. I am trying real hard to keep it going and keep bringing more and more pieces to the table. While you guys are waiting please check out the other stuff I have up and ready to go. 

 

This piece is just one of many that I have currently for sale. If you wish to see the others click here

On the eighth of this month I had my three year anniversary. What was it for? Well it was for running. It has been three whole years since I have made a commitment to myself to keep running and to not let anything keep me from treating myself and keeping myself in shape. I have been able to keep up with that commitment and I am so happy about it. Of course it has been longer than that since I really gave running a try but the three years are for being consistent. Consistency is key when it comes to this sport. If you don’t keep up with it then you won’t be able to keep a good pace. 

 

When I did my first run three years ago I was running a twelve minute mile and I really thought that the sport was terrible. I didn’t want anything to do with it and I really was sure that I was going to just forget about it. The first three months were terrible and I was really struggling with my ability to keep going. My motivation was so low and I was not sure how to keep pushing myself. It took a while but before I knew I found something to keep me going. 

I want to say what I found was a companion to keep running with me. I want to say that it was something magical but to be honest with you it was just myself. It was my own confidence and stubbornness that kept me running. I realized what path I was going down if I didn’t keep going and I made a promise to myself to keep going. To keep working and striving to be better than the previous me. I worked my butt off and kept pushing myself and within six months I got my time down from a twelve minute mile to a nine or ten. Really that’s huge. I was pushing myself in ways that I never thought were possible and because of that I eventually made myself do a half marathon. I wanted to do better. I wanted to be able to say that I did something that felt impossible to me. I wanted to be able to look at myself in the mirror and be proud of myself. 

 

Running has given me a confidence that I never knew I had. It has given me strength and has taught me a discipline that I never thought was possible. 

I am excited to see how far I can go and to see what else I can do in the running world. So cheers to another year of running, conquering my own insecurities and getting stronger than before.
