Inspiration corner

Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship  this will be an ongoing series of musicans,artists,writers etc.. that I find inspiring.
This month I am focusing on India Arie.  I am always inspired  by someone who is not afraid to be themselves
and to me she is the personification of a true individual!  She decided to not conform to what the record labels thought was an acceptable image.  She stayed true to herself and her mission statement.  Lately I have been truly
inspired by the last track called "Ichoose" The chorus goes a little something like this

    "I choose
     to be the best I can be
     I choose
     to be authentic in everything
     I do
     My past don't dictate who I am

I really need to hear that when I have to decide whether to blog about what interests me or do I only concern myself with what will drive traffic to this site?  I am gradually getting to the point where self expression and
keeping record of my creative process will have to be the main concern.  I would hope that what I do or write
about will inspire someone else to take that leap , that risk to be themselves without worring about who approves..  In a country where we are suppose to be free and we are, why is that so hard to do ?  I also believe in passing along useful and helpful info, but I just dont wont to "sell out " just to have people follow me.   So tell me what inspires you?  Who
is the most courageous person you know?  How did feel to be who you already without fear?

Project Life App : Digital Scarpbook Page

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

Project Life App : Digital Scrapbook Page

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
