Mood #Invisible

Like a grain on the beach
Like a star in the sky
Far too many to count with the naked eye
They won’t see you

Go ahead
Walk on by
You don’t know I’m alive
Maybe one day you’ll find
You should open your eyes
You don’t know me

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible

Little things adding up
Try so hard not to rush
Giving in, letting go of the world we know
They won’t see you

Force it down
Lose the taste
They all think it’s a waste
We don’t need to believe every word they say, now
They don’t know me

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible

It’s so easy to be lost
But maybe you’re not lost at all

Do you recognize me?
Do you know who I am?
Do you see me now?
Do you see me now?

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
I’m invisible
I’m invisible

My Face when Trump becomes President…

#JustSaying

All he has to do is keep quiet be a little more mild-mannered and BOOM everyone will think he’s an upstanding gentleman and credible. I sincerely and seriously believe he will become President. I’m not saying I want him to be. It’s purely on the basis of his huge global platform, his ingrained presence in many minds and deep understanding of financial engineering and contacts combined with his showmanship. It doesn’t matter that people hate him he is a candidate unlike any other: an irresistible combination of outrage, charm, unsettling/non-specific policy positions plus his recent tactic to inject some sensibility is a #winning formula. He’ll be golden.

Ignore em’, trash em’. Rolling with Rowling…

“You’ll never make money writing children’s book,” said an Authors agent. Then you’re faced with 12 rejections of your manuscript. What now? What next?

Why bother?

What now? Hand your book proposal to another Publisher. What next? Get your book published. Why bother? Because you have worked hard to craft and polish your children’s book manuscript, you feel compelled to get the story published, and why not just go for it? Hmmm 12 publisher rejections is a lot. Maybe you won’t make any money with this book, maybe the children’s genre is not a safe bet?

It’ll never succeed, this was all a wasted effort. I’ll stop. That’s it, enough is enough. Maybe the agent and publishers are right. My book is pointless, it won’t sell.

What if J.K Rowling had ended her thought trail on the above sentiments? 12 manuscript rejections, the utterance of children’s book not making money by her own literary agent. This all happened to the author of the multi-million selling Harry Potter books. What if she never got past no, never got past the disbelief, past the disappointments? She’d be just like the rest of us. Nothing wrong with that. But think of all that she would have missed out on: the film and franchise of her beloved Harry and becoming the World’s 1st Billionaire Author! She still is like the rest of us: enjoying family, taking the bus with the same insecurities and same desire for happiness in life.

So sometimes we have to ignore the critics say eff-U to those lacking faith in your genuine brilliance and trash the insecurities to do what you were born to do, even if it just means getting it outta your system and completing a goal.

Sometimes so called experts o the highly experienced are wrong. Sometimes you have to get their opposing views outta your head because they are just plain wrong and they are more than opposing you they are oppressing you. True leadership and brilliance is rare and sometimes a Ph.D is meaningless other times not. It’s a constant weighing up and making black and white what we do and what we hear.

First analyse and rigorously dissect the good, bad and ugly of your work or goals. If it is truly good enough go for it. Focus on it:

Follow

One

Course

Until

Successful

And then you meet the gatekeepers they say no. Plough through or find another passageway to get into. The CEO, the project manager or the publisher says no. Is it true what they are saying? Sometimes it might not be. You cannot disregard specialist’s. But other times you may have to. That’s the hard part, having to efficiently identify that distinction. Sadly all the titles, qualificatiosn and experience can be futile, and their opinion is simply an abyss into Hell if you follow their ‘advice’.

Ignore them and you may be taking the Stairway to Heaven or Highway to Hell. That’s a distinction to figure out later when you hit the Big Time!

Of course I 💖 Caitlyn Jenner…

artsyjoliegirl.com has returned from a Summer Break!

Of course I followed the Jenner transition this summer. I was actually on holiday when I was queing for a ferry to the Maltese island of Gozo when the CNN channel headlined: Jenner Twitter record…I was eagerly awaiting the news feed when I saw a stunning and beautiful mature lady. I assumed I’d missed the Jenner feature and now the attention turned to a former actress making a Hollywood comeback….Or so I thought.

Then I noticed it was a Vanity Fair cover a split second later I knew it was Bruce now baring her true soul to the world as Caitlyn Jenner!

I was shocked, stunned and overwhelmed by Caitlyn’s beauty! It was lucky I got to see that news feature in the waiting area of the ferry port. May Caitlyn have a healthy, happy and honest life for the rest of her life. Congratulations Ms Caitlyn Jenner you are now beautiful on the inside and out!

Here are older posts following Jenner’s brave soul journey…
