#ArtJewelryChallenge: 4th day: Bunny Ears Scrunchies, Finally!

Bunny Ear Scrunchies Eco Friendly by 3 Ptice

I’m totally killing myself with procrastination. You know, I can get that I procrastinate with paper work and stuff, but I don’t really get why I procrastinate with things I love. Like writing, sewing, painting, going out in the nature, even eating and smoking cigarettes. I am one of those highly sensitive person. Which is good, because people tend to feel good around me, because I am compassionate, but the down side of this is that one little dissapointment and my whole day is screwed. Oh, I just realized what happened today. It was all great, I was super happy, but I figured out that I’ll have to postpone one of my creative/business dreams until I earn a shit load of cash and then I started procrastinating with everything else I could do. Instead of taking more action I took less. Like whatever I do, it just doesn’t makes sense, this old dream of mine will stay out of the reach. Do you ever feel like this? Like there’s a such a big river between where you are and where you want to be and there’s no bridge and if you try to swim, the stream will take you with it, down the river and you’ll be even further away from your dreams? At least you can see them from here…

Anyway, I got something done. The bunny ear scrunchies are listed on Etsy and my Slovenian webpage, I posted few pics on social media and learned how to create facebook ads with power editor on this webinar. I learned a lot on subject of procrastination. And I also wrote that post. Okay, I totally have a blur picture of my business reallity, my never enough pattern doesn’t wanna die. But maybe is this his last battle with me? However, I’m the one who’s gonna win the war.

So, about the scrunchies! I kinda want to wear all of them, that’s how much I like them, but I’m kind enough to offer them to you 😉 Go get them!

Also, remember my post with this beautiful girl wearing 3 Ptice scrunchie? A reader sent me a link to the picture bellow. That awesome girl on a red carpet with my scrunchie! Orgasm.

There’s an #ArtJewelryChallenge going on Facebook and I decided to take it to the next level and also showcase my work here on my blog for five days in a row.
So what are the rules?
For 5 days, the nominated artist will show of her/his pieces, and also nominate one other artist every day to do the same.
So, thanks to Patsy and Unikat by Amadeja and Kitschy Mundi and Tina Jeranko and Natalija Zabav and Metka Zadravec for the nomination. Today I nominate, hhmm, I feel like everyone has already been nominated. I will nominate my friend, an academic painter who makes stunning paintings that I’m sure will sell for huge cash once the people from fashion industry discover her – Tjaša Čuš

So, we had a day off here in Slovenia, still a holiday. And as an entrepreneur I was having an inner fight, you know. “I have work to do, am so behind with everything, I gotta make some money, take care of marketing, I never get enough done, I never earn enough, never enough time…” And the other part of me was saying “Relaaax, it’s a holiday, take care of yourself, do some inner work, it’s still a work, just doesn’t feel like it ;)” Great trick! Thanks God I listened to that second part, because I came from feeling afraid about the week and all anxious (about money, about myself and how I see myself in society) to feeling totally excited about the week, cannot wait to start working on 3 Ptice and this blog as well tomorrow, I cannot wait to sell my goodies to people who want them, share my gifts, make money, change the world. I feel so good about myself, so grateful for everything I am, so grateful for everything I have, so grateful that I live in this beautiful country called Slovenia, so grateful for all the people I love and that I’m so lovable that they love me as well! Good life :*

Insight Tuesday: The Connection Between Attention and Shame

If you are in business, you know you have to get people’s attention if you want them to turn into your customers or clients. There’s many posts out there on how to get people’s attention in a good way, so I won’t focus on this today. I want to share with you my a-ha moment on why some people, including me, have problem with getting attention. I realised about half a year ago, that I really want people’s attention, I want them to see me, but when I get the attention I cannot really stand it, I will try my best to say what I have to say as short as I can and then hide somewhere. Even if is just in my mind. I usually don’t have these isuess when I’m around people that I feel relaxed with, but even then I’m the most comfortable when I speak to people 1:1. Yes, there comes time sometimes when I feel totally aligned with myself and I don’t mind being the center of the attention. But even then I will have some kind of vulnerability hangover the next day. Like I was too open, like I shared too much of my inner world with people. Want to read: "Brene Brown does an amazing job of explaining the difference between guilt and shame. Guilt is the feeling "I did something bad." Shame is the feeling "I am bad." Guilt prompts us to make amends and healthy change. Shame pushes us into the dark where unworthiness grows. When we are in shame, we can't possibly be the light we are meant to be." Last week I wrote a post about some situation that’s going on in my life in an amazing group that I’m a part of on facebook. When I started getting people’s attention, I felt happy for their answers, insights, suggestions. I was very grateful. But at the same time I had this strange feeling. Like some kind of shame for putting myself out there and asking for attention and help. It wasn’t logical. My post sparked some conversation and was also helpful to other group members as well – no reason for shame. So why was I feeling it? I did a lot of EFT tapping afterwards on not feeling enough etc. and then it hit me out of blue, why I feel so shy, when I get the attention. Even when it’s a good kind of attention. When I was a kid, I was of course craving for attention as every kid (and grown up) does, but I often been ignored, not seen or told that I am annoying (maybe the memories will change when I clear this out, because I’m sure there were times when I was being seen and appreciated). I once asked my mum, why don’t she say nice things to me, when I do things right. She said that doing things right is a standard, it’s obvious. So, no attention for doing it right. So I usually got the attention when I did something wrong or didn’t do something I should and sometimes I was even told to feel ashamed of myself. Brene Brown-"Shame needs three things to grow exponentially in our lives: secrecy, silence and judgement" So, my little brain connected being a centre of attention with feeling shame! It seems like connection was strong enough, that I still feel shame when I get attention. This was a huge a-ha for me! It explains why I have trouble in my business, it’s because I’m afraid to put myself out there, because on the one hand, I want the attention, but I push it away with my other hand, because it’s too uncomfortable as it triggers a shame response that I have programmed in my mind. And feeling shame doesn’t fell good. It makes perfect sense to me! It also explains why so many people have a fear of public speaking, cameras, microfons and so on. Now, what are the solutions? Recognizing, the connection between attention and shame is the first part of a solution. Then we can help ourselves with some logical thinking. But sometimes emotions that come from our old wounds don’t understand our logic mind, so I encourage you to learn some technique that will help you get through emotional charge. My favourites are EFT and fasterEFT that both takes a lot from NLP. You can learn all of them for free via World Wide Web also known as internet (: So, what you think? Does info in this post resonates with you? Do you have something to add? Share it in the comments. Brene Brown Shame cannot survive being spoken.  It cannot survive empathy.Image sourcethisislovelifequotes.net  - Looking for Love #Quotes, Life Quotes, #Quote, and #Cute Quotes for Girl and Boy? Then Go visitvia pinterest
