Hey guys! I’m so excited to share my latest endeavor with you!

I’ve been designing T shirts for myself and some of my friends for a few years now. With their encouragement, I have decided to make them available to you as well! I have just added two different designs to the shop, and I will be adding more designs regularly. Getting these designs into the shop, and getting the shop up and running has been something that has been carried over from To Do list to To Do list for some time now (um, like at least a year now . . . jussayin) It’s been rolling around in the back of my head for so long, and it feels good to release it out into the world.

Birthing ideas has never been an easy breezy process for me. The ideas come to me relatively easily, but my perfectionist tendencies sometimes keep me from progressing at the speed I would like. I always want things to be just right . . . I want the shop to look a certain way, I want to have a shop stocked with lots of designs, I want the designs just so… but this past year has taught me a valuable lesson that I think I have shared with you before . . .

START WHERE YOU ARE, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.

And so, I have.

I created the “change your mind” T as a way to remind myself that much of what we experience in life is filtered by our personal experiences. Sometimes the filter is good and sometimes it’s not so good. Really, its just a matter of changing our minds about the way we approach situations. It all depends on what we are filling our minds with daily. It’s a process for me, so I welcome little reminders here and there. I was inspired to create this shirt after spending some time studying Romans 12:2. It’s a powerful scripture that has really helped me to keep my thinking on track. Changing your mind is a process. But I love this phrase because it’s a two fold sentence that makes it sound so simple. It really is just a matter of changing your mind . . . over and over again until you train it.

My vision is clear and I am on the path to realizing it, I’m so glad you guys are along for the ride. In the meantime, you can visit the shop by clicking here or the “shop” button on the menu above to snag yourself a sweatshirt, T or tank.

Simply Put: Change Your Mind!!!

Many of you know that I did not make any New Year’s Resolutions this year. I vowed only to be constant in my awareness of situations and opportunities placed before me, and to live openly in the moment. Well, think of this as icing on that thought. In order to remain aware and in the moment, I know that there is extra daily work I must do (especially since I have not been apt to live freely in the moment for the past 38 years of my life). There is a bible scripture that I refer to that helps me to remain “mentally current” shall we say. The scripture is Romans 12:2. Simply stated it says:

Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.  –Rom. 12:2 KJV

This is a pretty heavy scripture, there is so much depth to it! Don’t worry,  I won’t get all bible-study on you, but I will say that it is a daily, minute-by-minute task to work at transforming yourself by renewing your mind. There are a number of ways I go about it, and I always start with the word of God. But even before that, I have to remind myself that I have got to actually change. my. mind. That means changing the way I think about things, the way I respond to things, the way I react to situations, etc. As a woman, I find it quite easy to change my mind about many things, but it is harder when it comes to behavior and feelings that are 30+ years old! So what did I do? I made a sweatshirt to remind myself! (I have a hard time doing anything without relating it to fashion in some way). My sweatshirt is a simple reminder to continue the renewing process of my mind. It also reminds me that, with God’s help, I can change my mind.

How do keep yourself on track with your goals?
