the thumbs up to start my own studio.
Dyerburg, Tn 2011.
Debt & over-spending runs in my immediate family.
I've been lucky enough to see the pattern in myself & fix it,
& now I'd like to make sure I have means to fall back on if neccesary.
|4th portion of the 2nd dan black belt test: board breaks!|
I let my instructor choose this break for me - a slippery side kick through 2 inches of pine.

Again, I'm ready: m
y last test was in 2009 (for my 2nd dan)!
I've had classmates who I use to outrank pass my in rank,
& typically it's the students with bad attitudes.
I've the history (
I've been studying martial arts since I was 4; a total of 16 years to date)
a better attitude about lower ranking students - color belts AND black belts alike.
I want to tip the odds back in the favor of students & teachers with respect for each other, and the best way to do that is by a leading example.
Over the years (gosh, that makes me sound old, doesn't it? Hee hee!) I've established a healthier diet and regimen . . . and my body no longer likes or tolerates fast food: I get sick, a feel awful, or in the case of the food from my place of employment I get food poisoning and starting throwing up.
No fun! So it's time to give it up 'cause that's what's best for me.
Except Taco Bell, 'cause I love that place.
So, 15 minutes a day ought to keep the dust mites and spideys away!
Did you know that your public library could place a "Delinquent" label on your account?
Well, neither did I until this year.
Check it out here.
We were put here on this earth to live; and I work to live, not live to work.
My big dream is to work for myself, write for a living, be a life coach, sell my designs//crafts, & do something with fashion & designing.
That's what this blog is, ya'll.
I value all support, ideas, comments, and constructive critiques - I want to be the best I can be at what I do, and every piece of input can help!
Engaged = marriage = wedding.
If I want a wedding I'll enjoy, it's up to me to plan it!
|"When are you going to fill in the heart? What's going in it?"|
Never, and nothing.
I'm a sunscreen-aholic, but that doesn't entirely prevent color-fading.
I want it to shine bright and beautifully - I'm proud of my tattoo and it's placement, and I want it to sparkle!
It's my reminder:
"An empty heart is open to everything.
'Everything' will paint a beautifully unique pair of wings -
nothing can hold down an open heart,
and her wings are bound to be her, and only her,
for as long as she wishes or wants."
