(A picture of the order on the monitor. Nothing fancy but it’s a start, fun yet inviting and playful.)
It’s 7AM and I came home to get my laundry sorted and to organize some paper work that was scattered throughout my room. When I remembered my order. A week ago I purchased a Skin for my laptop from http://www.skinit.com. I decided to create something that would promote myself and my writing and photography. You never know who you’ll meet or whose path you’ll cross and what doors it’ll open or where it’ll lead. Besides it’s always fun and interesting to meet new people and hear their stories. I love how many people you meet via social networking vs. everyday life. It opens your world and changes your views and insight constantly.
One of the best things and pieces of advice anyone ever gave me was to “Promote Yourself.” People need to get to know who you are. They need to get to know the various facets of your persona and gain a more personal connection or have a better understanding of you. It’s like they say, if you don’t love yourself first how can you expect anyone else to. You have to give people your all and put your whole heart into your efforts despite where it may lead you. Hit or miss…at least you took a chance and put yourself out there. How do you think people get noticed or become well known? You gotta start the talk and it may seem like no one is listening or even pays attention but when you least expect it someone will come out of nowhere and take you by surprise. They’re listening and they’re watching so don’t stop putting yourself out there. NO FEAR…remember? I know it’s easier said than done, but what’s stopping you?
Sweet Dreams I need to get some well needed rest, after all it’s football Sunday time to relax with loved ones and be lazy 😉 NIGHT
New addition to this post (added September 21st, 2010 @ 7:30PM):
I came home to go to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory with my aunts and cousin before work and to my surprise, my Skin It order was lying on the dining room table. I was so excited. My anticipation had been building up because it had been a week since I ordered it, but it was well worth the wait. I was proud to find out that the clarity was better than expected. When I had viewed the proof on the computer I feared that the coloring and font of the letters were going to get lost in the background picture. But to my astonishment they didn’t and my design came out well. Thank God! I’m so excited. I only hope this will open more doors for my writing and photography.
I’m so excited! I just can’t hide it! (Singing the old 80’s song)
