Step by Step

So these past few days I have had a victory. Something I have been putting off for the longest finally came to fruition yesterday. I finally launched my website for my photography business, Stain Colored Thoughts Photography & Design. It was scary as hell getting it together and customizing it. It's not super fancy and in all honesty I don't need it to be at this point at time. I just want to get myself out there. More so out of my comfort zone and let people know that I am available. I'm interesting in a lot of various genres of photography but I figured it's best to just offer what I'm comfortable with while working on the other styles.

I think the funny/crazy thing about all of this is that I have had my logo design since 2015. I originally thought up the concept and had a vision of what I wanted it to be back in 2010 (black woman with a curly colorful Afro and one of her eyes being a lens).  I tried various graphic designers but none of them captured what I was looking for until I discovered Autumn Lane Paperie on Etsy. So I have been sitting on this logo for all this time and yesterday is when I actually put it to use. Well besides using it on my various social media networks. Now I just have to get some business cards printed up. See how my mind works? yea......

I'm also trying to get other things in order as well in connection with my business. Someone who is normal probably would have done things in a different order but no I have to be But I'm learning as I go along.

I've been doing somewhat ok with my eating. I'm not eating as much as I used to. I am still learning to slow down in regards to eating. I'm drinking more water. Slowly but steady. I've downloaded an app on my phone that has been helping me called Fabulous. It helps me with learning healthy tasks and doing them over until they become embedded mentally. I'm on day 3 and so far I'm sticking it with it.

I also decided to start using the weight room that we have at my job. I found out the schedule so I figured I can use it when students aren't around. I like working out solo and having a space to myself. Yet I don't mind others being around me. I don't want to overwhelm myself so I figured with me starting back up with another college class which will be on Mondays and Wednesdays I would go to the weight room on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I'll need to map out a workout plan to get myself back into using the weights and various machines. I was going to start today but unfortunately there is possibly a flash freeze coming our way by the time I would work out. Something about a 30 degree temperature drop seems to make people kinda nervous while driving home. Go figure.

I also decided I was going to try to eat a healthier breakfast and try......heaven help me.....Steel cut oatmeal... I went by Dierbergs this morning and found some. I honestly don't know how long that will go....but we will see. I also know eggs and fruit are always an option.

I'm still learning how to carve time out for myself. I'm trying to learn how to take things day by day. Keep an open mind and a positive mind set. How does one learn how to undo the mental hangups that have kept them prisoner for such a long time? One step at a time.
