Fascinated by #michaelpaulsmith the creator of the #miniature#elginpark A recluse artist, as he is often described is not apt as he says he is sociable to people. Bullied but never wavering in his vision that he will someday create an outlet that will somewhat changed the world; in the realisation of his miniature world Michael did. His Elgin park also bore tragedies, uncles murdered but also tales of triumph whilst growing up. Check out #natiinalgeographic feature on this gentleman. Similarly bullied, I found comfort in him achieving his success. The other observers will too as many have did #inspirational#artist#builtbyhands#misenscene 🕶😋💋🌟

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” Visit Quotes for Life at Focusfied.com #Quotes#Inspirational
Yesterday was a blast as we premiered "The Thirst Is Real" Essay edition on the red carpet. When you believe students are superstars you give them the star treatment. I believe in these young kings and queens and will continue to fight with them for their dreams to come true.
Since my recovery date was Dec 31 , do I celebrate it June 30 or July 1? (Photo of the day my life hit rock bottom and I begged for God to lift me out of my misery... I laid on the cold ground in this breezeway just sobbing into my cats fur , begging God to take my life and steer it far away from that place)
To the #builders “Then he said to me, “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Nothing, not even a mighty mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel’s way; it will become a level plain before him! And when Zerubbabel sets the final stone of the Temple in place, the people will shout: ‘May God bless it! May God bless it!’ ” Then another message came to me from the Lord: “Zerubbabel is the one who laid the foundation of this Temple, and he will complete it. Then you will know that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has sent me. Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” (The seven lamps represent the eyes of the Lord that search all around the world.)”
Zechariah 4:6-10 NLT
THE epihany that has kept me exercising (even when I HATED it) 👇🏼: No joke - I think the first time I even broke a sweat was when I was 19 or 20... In no way shape or form did I identify with fitness - in my mind it was meant for self-abdorbed people that were obsessed with appearances... That wasn't me - "I'm not a jock." 🙄 Old Mark was a goon (said with love). ----Cue montage spanning 12 years of the crazy ups and downs and sideways and inside-out-edness of self-transformation--- Now I can't even imagine my life without nurturing my physical health.
Let me be clear...To this day, 60% of the time...I DON'T WANT to exercise... I'd rather pour a beverage, dive into self-transformation materials, have sex, meditate, Netflix - to be honest...ANYTHING else... But years ago I had an epihany - one that keeps me nurturing this physical form even when I don't want to... When we TRULY are grateful of something - like, for real FOR REAL appreciate something - we take care of it.
I am infinitely grateful that The Universe has gifted me a physical form. One that has the mental and physical abilility to take care of itself through movement and positive decisions... My fitness journey is just an extended prayer of gratitude for this physical manifestation... Show The Universe how grateful you are- move and thrive! ❤️🙏🏼
