What’s in A Name?

Hey Sista Tribe!

I have missed you lately! Christmas is right around the corner I pray you are celebrating in love and peace with your families! This topic is a little out of the Christmas spirit but, one I wanted to address before heading into the New Year. The last few days I felt some sort of yearning to possibly change the name is my business. I have mentioned this before in the last few weeks. I even did a poll on Facebook to get some feedback regarding my business name. My mind has been swirling around wondering “Why?” Why should I change the name of my business? What is causing me to question it all of a sudden? After, asking myself these questions and really pondering it. Here is what I came up with;

What does JunkyGypsy Inspirations mean to me? 

Gypsy is out of my desire and passion to be a wanna be nomad. I truly love the idea of traveling and being “FREE” so to speak. Junky comes from my artist nature and creative spirit to create fun boho chic art from old antiques and collectibles. I added the Inspirations because I really have a heart and burning desire to inspire women to LIVE.LOVE.LEARN & Get Crazy Inspired! I thrive when I am being real, raw, and Amy. If you asked any one of my kids, siblings, or mom (who has passed) they will say about my funky color patterns and boho designs, my unique sense of bizarre humor, my deep passion for learning everything I can about anything that inspires me and teaches me, long grey sweaters and boots, dark eye makeup and my deep sense of soul passion, my ability to see people for who they really are, my quiet nature that observes all and gains insight and wisdom, my ability to avoid confrontation on any and all fronts due to my fear of others, how I hunger for a deep, fervent relationship with few, how most of the time I sit on my feelings until they build into a pile of exploding mashed potatoes! These are my qualities, this is who I am. This is me and out of all of that my desire is to offer the world, my unique gifts as a present for the ones who choose to link themselves to me intuitively. I aspire to share the pains of life and how to be a warrior woman through and through. To be raw, real, and truthful about how I came to own my power and step into “me”. To be a light in the darkness when others feel they are unworthy and desire to find “a better way”. I share through my creative spirit woman. My instinct is in the WORD. My pen is the flame that serves the masses. This is why I named my business JunkyGypsy Inspirations.  Join me in building a beautiful Sista Tribe where we create the culture of supporting one another to LIVE. LOVE. LEARN. & Get Crazy Inspired to change the world!

Yes, my brand is JunkyGypsy Inspirations and I am here to inspire.

The Right Road of Exploration

 

 

JunkyGypsy (4)Hey Tribe!

My soul is in a bitter-sweet place this morning. I find myself at the crossroads of life. This way or that. You may have seen similar post on this topic in the past and it is because I have drifted in and out and back and forth on this matter. Which road do I choose? Which path is correct? I used to be terrified and believe that God was going to crush me if I did what I wanted. My dream was somewhere and I had to be brave enough to find it. Then one day God said, “Walk in your complete truth.” And so I did, but nothing changed. My inner light has slowly faded day after day and week after week. Here I am. Fear is a dream thief. It sits there staring us in the face almost taunting us with whispers, ” You can’t do that. You won’t do that. You are too weak. There is too much what ifs. Stop being silly. That is not reality.” This goes on and on. On the other hand this past month I have dared myself do one thing a week that terrifies me so I can conquer this devil of fear. I have successfully won the small battles.

Live your DreamLove I

My dream is this, to be a writer/blogger and #1 Best Selling Author on Amazon, to be a runner and complete 2 10K’s this year, to grow my brand JunkyGypsy Inspirations: in which I take the lead for women and conquer my fears and create my dream life and by being the example I can help them be all they are meant to be! To grow my doTERRA business and build a tribe of sista’s who believe in natural healing and have a passionate desire for their bodies to operate at peak performance. I want to speak to a crowd of 500 women and tell my story with my children present so they can see anything is possible. Pay off my debts and build savings so I can give freely, travel freely and live freely. To bless my children with their basic needs while spending quality time together on vacations. That is it. I comprehensive list of my goals and dreams I am determined to succeed at these are all non negotiable.

th (1)

What I did not include is the environment in which all these things take place. I will have a cute house in the mountains with a view off my back deck. I will drive a nice car either a suburban or a Prius, ” I know its one extreme to the other.” But, hey its my dream. To go out to restaurants for dinner in the city. To walk everywhere. Join a gym downtown. Make relationships with the most beautiful like-minded people. To serve others daily. To walk in love and truth. To have integrity and wisdom. To wake up excited about my life and pinch myself because I think I am dreaming. All of this can not happen until I put away the old. It is like when you decide to change how you talk to yourself. When you release all of those negative thoughts and words and replace them with positive affirmations. After a while you believe the affirmations and all of the negativity is gone.

I know I am more confident, more outgoing, more courageous, today than I was two years ago. I know it is because of my thinking. The transformation is real. Today I am at the crossroads once again. This time it feels like the last time this opportunity may cross my path. I know the way. I know what to do. As humans we feel the need to ask others if this is right or wrong as if they know what we are going through or what is in our head. Don’t get me wrong sometimes when you confide in another it is wise to listen but, ultimately it is your life and your choice. It is like when I went for my run yesterday, I thought no one else is going to run for me or get me in shape. No one. This is my discipline. I have given credit to others in my life when really it was me doing the work. This might sound a little crazy but, I would give credit for actions I took in my life to someone else just because they were with me. Make sense? After reflecting on this yesterday I realized that is my power. I am capable of anything. I never really instilled this one concept into my children’s lives. Which is why I am determined to model it for them. The way I go from here is scary, it is big, it is painful. I know what is on the other side of fear is a life I only ever dreamed of before and it will be my reality! Promise you that!

 

Lots of Love,

Hello Lovelies!

I have missed writing here on my little blog! It has been far too long. Literally, I find that my schedule is quickly filling up and I have to figure out what works for me. I am writing articles for a couple of magazines, building my new website, prepping for weekly Facebook live Sista Jam Sessions, where we come together in love and truth and chat about our dreams and goals! Doesn’t that sound simply divine? I am super excited about the new launch. I also, starting writing a new book. It is not entirely new, I am rewriting the book I recently published on Amazon and adding lots of value and much better content to the mix. I have found my entrepreneurial spirit, the confidence to embrace my own uniqueness. I am determined to show up big in my life right where I am today. Have you been in a place of new growth and unlimited potential in your personal life and biz? There is this atmosphere of abundance right now. God I believe is opening doors and sending opportunities that maybe once were not options. He is lifting the veil so He can be glorified I our daily life. When we give Him the glory and the honor He is showing up BIG for us! I feel it. If you are on the cupst of growth or something you have been trying to do for a long time just know that He is sending the right opportunities and the right doors will open at the right time. We are in a beautiful space of love and peace. Embrace sista’s with all of your beauty. The world needs you!

Creating the Dream

images

Hey Love,

I have been on a rampage today. This morning I began with a simple prayer but one I have been praying for sometime now. I pray for God to give me wisdom, knowledge and understanding as He did for Solomon. I have craved wisdom just so I would stop making the mistakes I keep making and living a small life. I know I am meant for more. I know with my business that I have a ministry to women and to my children. Today was jam packed with eye opening wisdom. I have zoned in on my purpose and my WHY. Everyday it gets a little clearer and more focused. I fully accept responsibility for the lack of growth in my biz. I have sat behind this computer acting AS IF, but doing nothing on the outside. I feel led to host and event in the near future and speak in front of hundreds of my beautiful Sista’s. I am going to share my journey and my story. I know, I can not share it until I have walked the lessons out first and I have a few that I must face head on before I can share. Why am I pouring my heart out?

To get you excited. Have you been on the edge of something you know you must do? Have you been silently suffering inside and dying a little each day because you know you were meant to do more? Does your life look anything like the vision you had when you were young? No. That is what I thought. Mine either. I will tell you before that awaking can happen you must find your POWER. Do you know what your POWER is? let me tell you. Your POWER is: your strength, your discipline to do what is right, your hope for the future, your dreams, your integrity, your prayers, your peace, your joy, your freedom, your resilience, your love, your passion, your beauty, your attitude, your patience. It is any strong characteristic that you uniquely have. What happens to us (women) is we often give our POWER away for free all the time without realizing it. I have finally found mine and I am rebuilding the infrastructure of my POWER to be stronger than ever. I made a promise to myself that I would never give it away again. Ever. As women we must be very intentional about protecting our POWER. If our boundaries are weak then before long our POWER has been lost. You might be a loud assertive woman and say to yourself, ” This chic is crazy I got my sh*t together.” Sometimes we have lost access to our POWER without even knowing that it was stolen or misplaced. Once you find out that you have to get control of your POWER slowly you will begin to see the things differently again. The truth will shine out of the darkness. The windows of your soul fly open and a new breeze is blowing. Your world changes from the inside out. With that newness, you can decide the direction of your dreams. You can set your goals and learn new habits. You are a super star! Now that I have found my POWER, my eyes are open to understand complexity and constant change are everywhere and I can now avoid extreme thinking. Which was a big problem for me. I am transforming my mind and my thinking and learning new skills that align with my dreams and goals. Through my experiences I can share with you Sista’s your own path to FREEDOM. I want you to be free in all areas of your life! Beautiful beloved you deserve all the awesomeness you dream life has to offer! If you are interested in joining me in my journey let me know! I want to cultivate a culture of Sista’s who celebrate life for all it is and dream big together. To share our battles and our victories. To love and lift in prayer and praise. Let’s live a passionate life of servanthood. Share your story below, I want to hear!

 

Live your DreamLove I

PS. I have a new website I want you to checkout! Here! it is really awesome!

You Can if I Can.

Here is a snapshot from the book I am writing. It is a book about life, goals, dreams and helping “self”. My mission with this book is to help people who are the ones that choose to live life differently. The ones ready for an upgrade. The ones who are thinking outside of the box. The ones who might be paralyzed in fear. The ones who need a community of cheerleaders! I am sharing the preface with you because I want to share my journey in writing my first book. I want to share what it takes to sit down everyday and try to write when you can’t. I want to share the ideas that flood my mind. I want to share my daily life and my growth journey.

So here ya go!

PREFACE

My core desire is to build a community of people who are ready and willing to take their life to the next level. That means in all areas body, mind and soul. It means developing positive routines that will thrust you forward into the amazing life God intended for you to live. My passion is to lead you to those tools and resources that will help you on your journey and that have helped me. I know this sounds like a lot and you are probably wondering where to start or even how to start. I was like you and it took me years to put healthy routines into place so that over time they would give me the results I have today. We are never done growing. We should always be learning and upgrading ourselves and our lives! Today, I can honestly say I am a confident ,healthy, beautiful woman who chooses to be a light in the world! I never would have said those things about myself before. I have done the work. It has taken years of reading, studying, learning, growing, getting rid of old thinking patterns, surrendering, accepting, loving, and so much more to get to where I am today. I am going to share how I did it and the tools that got me here!

Let me share a bit with you about my journey. My name is Amy Cherie Woods Siler, I am the founder and creative guru of JunkyGypsy Inspirations. I created my brand out of my passion to inspire people to live a life of total freedom, to love themselves and others, and to learn forever. (Live.Love.Learn)I am not saying that everybody is trapped and in bondage, not at all. What I mean is the majority of people live their lives not ever knowing that they can be totally free. So many of us live in bondage to something at sometime or another in our lives. It could be an addiction or a bad habit or something even more disguised like eating an ice cream cone late every night which is a sugar addiction. It could also, be a negative attitude or getting angry, really there are so many little things that keep us from living a life of total freedom. I also, know it is hard to make real lasting changes in life. Those who are ready and willing and devoted will succeed and I am here to be your cheerleader!

How often do you think about your health? Some people are extremely passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and then there are those who simply don’t really think about it. My journey into living a natural, healthy lifestyle began in 2007. I was overweight, depressed and very insecure. I was indulging in highly processed foods and overeating. I had no energy, no passion and no will power it seemed. Yet, I knew I was in a vicious cycle and I wanted out. I had a desire to change and I knew I had to or my life would not get any better. I started researching growing my own foods and I bought some chickens and started there. I knew growing my own produce was a start. I also, wanted my children to eat healthier. At the time they were all between the ages of 12-5 years of age. We were a newly blended family of seven and my hubby was a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He still is. I began to research what GMO’s were and that was around the time of the famous documentary Food Inc. came out. Slowly, my diet changed and I began to exercise in little increments. I did not lose a ton of weight but, you could see a difference. I became obsessed with natural organic living and doing things differently. This lead me to apply for a job at Whole Foods Market in 2010. It was January 2010 and I accepted a position in the Produce and Seafood depts full time. I could not have been happier. My education grew as I worked with local organic farmers and local vendors. My product knowledge increased as well as, my passion and obsession for living a different way. Over the next five years I completely transformed my diet and my body. I under went surgery in 2012 for a hysterectomy at age 35 due severe problems. I blamed the problems on “big pharma”. Side effects from medications and from my tubal ten years prior. I also suffered anorexia in my late twenties and I had a severe drug addiction to painkillers.  I could honestly write a book about being an addict but, I will save that for another time. The reason I am sharing this with you is so I can be completely transparent and real. Addiction is hard and even harder to overcome but, it can be done. I do not shift all of the blame on big pharma but, I do blame them some. If pain killers had not be carelessly over prescribed in the late 80’s and through the 90’s we would be a very different nation right now. Just look at the heroin epidemic. Thankfully, God protected me from ever trying heroin. He knew I would be dead right now had I tried that. Today, my passion for a natural healthy abundant life has led me to be an entrepreneur. This is why I created JunkyGypsy Inspirations. Part of living a high vibe life is gratitude. Being in a state of constant gratitude will always keep you humble and will help you to stay focused.
Be grateful daily for the life you have and where you are. It is important to embrace the present in order to have freedom to change the future. I want to evolve into what God wants me to be–what His original vision was for me. Granted I made mistakes along the way but, He has worked it all out for the good.
I am at a point in my life where peace is my priority and negativity can not exist. That involves learning to control emotions. Another goal of mine is to support you in getting a grip on those pesky emotions that try to steal our joy. Will they ever go away? No. Of course not. But, learning how to control them makes all the difference. My one core desire is for this TRIBE to love, respect, and accept each other where we are at in our health journey together knowing we are all growing and changing.

How do we live a High Vibe Life Successfully?

We have to develop a positive mental attitude and treat everyone as if they were the most important person in the world. We have to develop a capacity to understand people. We must have self-discipline and learn to manage our own personal habits. We must exude peace and have hope and ambition for the future. Get excited about our goals and dreams and determine in our minds that we will succeed no matter what. Another area we must master is self-care. You must always make time for yourself. You can not serve and bless others if your cup is empty. Lastly, GO EXTREME! Figure out what matters most and focus on that thing.

I am now having done these things myself, a light in the world. I serve people by being the example and living in the freedom that God meant for us all to live in. The Lord wants me serve Him and others with my unique gifts and His purpose for my life which is also, the things inside of me that He gives me a deep creative passion for. He put that seed in me long ago and now it is time for it to grow, bloom and share with others. I wanted to experience abundance and freedom in my life, so I had to heal and serve then lead in my own home first before I could share with others what I have learned. Be obsessed with your own freedom and health! Be a person of powerful habits! Always put love first. If we place true authentic love before anything else in our lives then and only then can we succeed. As we grow and change we are constantly up grading or up leveling our lives. It is important to surround yourself with people who are going to support your journey. Maintain focus and clarity on your dreams and goals. You must be the leader of yourself. I will share the tools that will help motivate and lead you to live a beautiful amplified life! We will Live, Love, and Learn together and every single day you are gonna get crazy inspired! I am creating a culture of transparency, love, and freedom in this TRIBE! I hope that everyone wants to live in a beautiful state. Throughout this book you will discover key principles, tools you need and habits to put into place to ensure your growth and success in any and every area of your life! Right now, embrace your true authentic self right where you are. You are beautiful, brilliant and ready to upgrade!

 

Have a Beautiful Day!

Love,

JunkyGypsy

Respons-ABLE/ Inspir-ACTION

Respons-ABLE  Inspir-ACTION Dis-EASE

You are fully able to take real action on your dreams and goals ,your mind and body are at ease!

 

I created this to give myself some guidelines going forth in my life and business. These are all areas that I want to change so that I can impact others lives in a positive way. I began initially writing these for myself but, then I thought others would like the information too! In each area on a daily basis I am asking myself these questions. It might be a lot for you so just take a few if you are overwhelmed. By asking yourself these questions in these areas of your life and writing out your answers you are causing a shift in your mind to happen. This will help you to build positive habits, reflect on any areas that need work and it makes you aware of your thinking before you think and your actions before you act. In case you don’t understand the title of this post I intentionally wrote it out so you could see how words have power. We are all able to take action daily in our lives doing whatever we feel is important be it a dream or goal or just simply going to the grocery store and getting the kids to take a nap. It is all relative to life. Most everyone I know wants to have a life that is important. They want to fulfill their dreams and goals. I have made it my mission in life to help women do just that through inspirACTION! I have a passion for women to be healthy and not have disease but to be at EASE in their mind and body! My prayer is that you will take advantage of these questions and really begin to apply it them to your life right now!

*My goal next year is to start a: Say Yes Fund– $3000.00 per year Biz prospects, missions, charities this is after Tithe.

My Prayer:

Lord, I surrender my life and business to You. I pray Lord, for inspiration and ideas that will generate an income and also help me to bless others. I pray that You would take me out of my comfort zone daily and help me to grow intentionally in each area listed below. Help me Lord, to maintain focus and clarity on my dreams and goals. If my dreams and goals are not what You have lined up for me then I pray You would close the door so that I do not waste time chasing meaningless endeavors. Lord, I pray that you would anoint my pen so I can provide valuable content to my followers and spread Your love. I am grateful for every person reading and praying this right now and I ask You to bless their life and provide whatever needs they have. As, their sista in Christ, let us come together as a community/Tribe of daughters of Zion and embrace each other in love and truth. As You Father, have laid on my heart to build this business as a safe place for us all to grow and mentor one another. Help me to reflect Your love in my speech, attitude and actions daily to my Tribe.  I humbly submit my wants and my desires for this business to You and I pray for You to send the people to me who need inspiration and help taking action -people who are ready to invest in their health and wellness journey. Father, I surrender all I have been taught up until this very moment, I let go of what I thought were the genuine guidelines of living a healthy life. And what I thought was the way to lead people to better health. Help me to keep my mind clear and my heart pure & strengthen my convictions and help me to apply all that You teach me into all areas of my life, my family, health, finances, business, serving others, mind, body and spirit. So that my cup will overflow! Thank You Lord!

In Jesus Name- AMEN!

Well done Good & Faithful Servant!

His master replied, ” Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”  

Matthew 25:21

th-3

My Favorite Prayer

I choose today Lord; to walk in the success You have for me and in love and obedience to You! Help me spread my wings and take risks. I never again want to settle for anything less than Your very best for me. Today, I walk in love, joy, grace, humility and a fiery determination! I will never give up on Your purpose for my life.

Lord,  I seek Your wisdom, like the wisdom you gave to Solomon for my life and my business; insight to know what path I am to take at what time You desire. Lead me, guide me, and teach me Holy Spirit. Thank you Father for your unfailing love and unending faithfulness. I embrace growth, passion, servant hood, and Your purpose for my life!

In Jesus Name- AMEN

I wrote this prayer on March 11, 2017 and I am so blessed today that God continues to work this prayer out and answer me. My passion and desire to know Him more intimately, to trust Him and have Him lead my life are growing at such a rapid rate this past month. This prayer in particular was a bold prayer. Many times we pray for blessings and guidance but we seek it in a selfish way. Asking him to do things for us the way we want them to turn out. I have caught myself doing this many times and recently, God brought this to my attention. He said- Yes, pray for what you desire but, remember it is always the Lord’s will that prevails in our lives. He must be first and His ways must be first. My dreams and my desires are mine because God gave them to me, so when I pray and ask for Him to bless me or provide for me He does with His purpose in mind. Now, when I pray I ask God what He desires from me accomplishing my dreams. I know that the success the Lord will give me is higher and better than anything the world can give!

Traps that Can Keep Growth from Happening in Your Life or Biz!

th

Today, I am going to share what I learned about brain traps. You might be asking, “What the heck is a brain trap?”

Brain traps are hidden patterns that stop us from listening to our hearts and taking action on our ideas and dreams. They are why people “settle“. I am going to go through a list of five brain traps about leading and inspiring others. These five steps gave me clarity in my business and opened my eyes to the ways that I would silently sabotage growth in my biz.

Brain Trap #1– I’m not an expert. In whatever field or service you offer you may think you can not “sell” until you educate yourself more in a certain area or about a certain product. This is a lie! If you are passionate about what you are doing your passion will “sell” itself.

Brain Trap#2– I will do this for FREE. When you feel like you are not worth getting paid for what you do. Example- Let’s say you are starting a coaching biz, your flat rate is 100.00 and hour. You set your price and have confidence in getting it, until someone comes to you and questions why so much. Then a seed of doubt is planted and you may believe you are not worth as much.

Brain Trap #3– I suck at sales, I am to nice. You give away too many “free” samples in the hopes that someone will buy but, instead they know you are a pushover and never become a client. This is negativity at work. You have to set aside any “feelings” about being nice. This is business, its raw and brutal and your life depends on it.

Brain Trap#4– I don’t have the perfect location for my business. False. You do not need to have the perfect location. You need to be determined and go after exactly what you want. If you are in a less desirable part of town or working out of your home, so what. It is your passion and drive that will get you to the next level. Before long you will be able to lease the building of your dreams!

Brain Trap#5– What if no one comes or buys? Again, a seed of doubt. Your mind can play all these tricks which is why you need to be ready and alert for these feelings to come up. When you are running your own business, sure there will be doubts and road blocks but, that is part of the growth experience. You need to fight negativity with positivity daily and keep going. So what if this person or that person does not buy. Keep going. Determination and discipline are your keys to success!

These five traps are why so many people give up and “settle” in their personal life and in business. If you want to have a successful business you have to be a “high vibe” person. Attract the right people into your life that will build you up. Get rid of those that are bringing you down. They are probably just jealous anyway. I learned a great deal from these five brain traps a year ago and having taken the correct action when these stink bombs appear I have been victorious. I hope this helps you! Happy business building! You are a rock star and worth it!

Mustard Seeds

Did you know that mustard seeds are the smallest of all seeds? Isn’t it funny how God uses the example of a mustard seed and our faith.

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20 NIV

I desire to grow in my faith this year and believe God and control my thoughts in a positive way so that my faith is increased. The formula we should all be using in our life should be:

FAITH+ BELIEF+ACTION = RECEIVE

Activate your abundant life today using this for your goals but first seek His Kingdom and all else will come!

What Bob Ross taught me about life and Biz

The week’s theme is a favorite of mine from the lovely Bob Ross!

th-1

I fell in love with this quote the first time I heard it actually watching a Bob Ross with my daughters. I decided to make it the theme so I could do some research on the matter. I found out that Bob Ross lived in Alaska for over a decade! That was fascinating to me. I love Alaska. Bob Ross taught me today some pretty awesome stuff about life and business and I have chosen to adapt his relaxed, laid back attitude for life. I have made many mistakes in life and a lot of those turned out to be pretty awesome happy accidents! I had to look up the definition and here is what I got:

The definition of:

a happy accident

a pleasant situation or event that is not planned or intended We never planned to have a third child – it was a happy accident.
However, in all my research I have come to embrace the quote! I absolutely love how relaxed Bob Ross was about life in general. It seemed as if his relaxed attitude kept him simple. He loved what he did and it showed in his art! He has taught me to maintain the same relaxed attitude in life and in business that he portrayed through his art. I am taking his advice and letting go. Releasing the need to feel in control or that I have to try to control things. In business he outlined the simple yet, powerful strategies to be successful.
Here are the keys points:
-Have no thought of money. Only about making people happy by what you do or offer.
-Investing in your business, betting on yourself.
-Invest in marketing. (of course social media was not the thing back then but, it still applies to business)
-Thank your customers often. Free gifts or emails.
-Keep overhead low and do not move forward until you know you can.
-Satisfy your employees (team members). Kindness, benefits, create an environment that your team members never want to leave.
-Plan to work long hours for yourself. To succeed you must put in the work.
-You don’t need a business plan. This leaves you open to take advantage of unforeseen opportunities.
-Maintain a strong email list. Send out inspiration, thank you notes, and keep people informed of all business activities.
These are some pretty basic and common sense approach to business. what hit me most was him pointing out that I just need to be passionate about making people happy and the rest will come. That takes faith for sure. We all know that we can not make everyone happy. So, I think the goal is to serve, love, give inspiration. That is what I am here to do. That is what my business is all about. I hope you learned something today that you may not have known before. My prayer is that you were inspired to chase after your dreams. Know that you can do anything, really. We have to BELIEVE that our dreams are real. We have to TRUST that anything is possible. That is what Bob Ross did and look at his legacy.

The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”
-Bob Ross
Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.”
-Bob Ross
