Well what a beautiful weekend it was the the Chi. The sun was shinning the weather sky hot and a bit of rain and clouds for the topper. I had a chance to go to church this past Sunday and had a beautiful 2nd date with Tem. We decided to go to a local park and spend the day there. I am a Army veteran and I love this park. It is just a beautiful place to remember all those who sacrificed and just to have a great time enjoying the atmosphere.
It is interesting how life comes full circle isn't it? A couple of people have said to me"who are you?" There is this book I read a long time ago it is called Return To Love. There is a passage in the book that says:
Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
I just wanted to encourage you as well as myself to stay your course. I find joy and fulfillment in my corner of the blogesphere and I celebrate those who enjoy theirs as well. It is not easy to put yourself out here like that. Slowly but surely I am owning that I am a Blogger as well as a Thrifter. I have someone in my life that encourages the creative part of me and that I can in return encourage. I step out on faith everyday. What do you do that feeds your creative soul? I work in a tech field and try to have a well rounded life.
I combined an outfit that I have posted about before on the blog my cat
skirt. This piece was custom made and purchased from (H.O.T) House of
Tem and my Mesh peplum top was thrifted a couple of years ago. I also
found one of these babies in black.
Tem is also a thrifter and a High End Custom Fashion Designer. I am including a few pictures of myself and Tem well because he is the Guy that takes all of the wonderful Cat Pictures of us.
Details about my fit:
House of Tem (H.O.T.)
Custom made Maxi Cat Skirt with pockets
Shoes I found 2 pair 1 in black for the rain (Salvation Army)

P.S. I've been thrifting for years so I don't always remember where or when a thrift was from unless it was extra special.
