Fear, a powerful voice

Energies: whether its negative or positive which ever is stronger, it will bring it to you.

Fear is a powerful negative and it is strong and it creates things we dont want.

I saw something and I feared it would happen and it did.

Whatever you give the most power to, the things that drive your logic and actions is what will ultimately affect your future.

So how do we turn that off? How do we calm this into an empowering perspective?

By remembering that the brain is only protecting what it doesnt know and has implanted this fear to stop you from doing something else.

Obviously dont jump off the bridge if you don’t have safety gear, that’s not what I mean, lol.

If the brain doesn’t know the outcome it will inject fear and doubt and will tell you to stop it. Its programmed to keep you happy but if it doesn’t know that it will cause because its a new experience, it will try to stop you.

That is when you know you need to get past this fear and continue so that you dont feed it. Don’t buy into fear.

So the next time you come into a new job or new idea for a book and fearing the outcome because its unfamiliar territory, remember that on the otherside of fear is something potentially amazing!

And so I have even though I am not sure of the outcome of things have decided on making my Herbaceous book into a series. I’m just gonna try and see what happens. Eek, gotta try otherwise we will always wonder. I would rather say I tried it and it didn’t work then saying I wish I did that!

I am Happy with what I have, are you?

I am happy now but I wasn’t always. I started out wanting to take the on the world. To conquer everything to rise to the top. But over time those accomplishments that I had done, I was not thinking much of them. I figured go bigger, do bigger, be bigger.

Instead of being grateful that I had carved my way into the publishing business and being an illustrator for others and two publishing companies, I still felt like I hadn’t done enough.

I am now a published author of 4 books and yet still I felt lost I didn’t think much of it. But I was so wrong in my thinking. I have done more than what I set out to do. I accomplished so many of my bucket list items, and can honestly say I worked damn hard to get here.

I haven’t had it easy, life has challenged me every step of the way and I didn’t give up, No I couldn’t give up.

What fueled me was that voice in the back of my mind that kept telling me what had been drilled in my head from abuse from my parents and my ex that I would never amount to anything.

I was determined to prove them wrong, all of them. They tried to choke the life out of me but I was not going to let them. No one had that kind of hold on me, so I thought. And yet I stood there with hundreds of paintings I had done for customers and books I had written just staring at myself in the mirror still feeling like I wasn’t good enough to accept being happy about it.

And then it hit me, you will never be happy unless you are happy right now! If we are always looking for the next thing then the moment is lost on the accomplishment in front of us.

So what I am trying to say is, be happy right now in this moment. Take whatever little wins you get and be grateful for them now, don’t wait until its passed and not appreciate what you have. Apply that kind of mindset and life is not so hard and things we do maybe not a big deal to others but to us it is. Keep on the positives wherever you can find them, no matter how big or how small. It will keep you when you fall into that negative thinking, those voices in the back of your head trying to ruin the present moment.

SO today I am grateful that I have these books published and are out for the world to see, for those paintings I did which is a piece of me.

Be happy in the now,

Namaste

Video games are not to blame.

While some claim video games are the cause of violence I can honestly and matter of factly disagree.

I play video games myself. Like Destiny 2, Crackdown 3, Forza horizon 4, amongst other games.

I can say with all certainty I am not a violent person.

I do this as a pass time to decompress from the day of stressful life situations.

Video games for most people is a recreation, a hobby or passion. I know gamers too who play and they have jobs and family and lives outside of it.

Many agree it is a time to relax and get your aggravations out on the game. It’s fun, its frustrating at times, but it’s also rewarding too.

To be on the extremely cautious parent level, I have to say for me as a parent I do regularly check and talk about violence and gaming with my children. Gaming as a parent of kids who play I actively monitor what they play.

Why?

Well Of course I wouldn’t allow them to play games that are not AGE appropriate and they know that asking me will only result in a ‘no not till your older’ answer. Because there mind is not equipped to handle some of the adult content, example; sex and mature situations within the games that are rated 18+.

But when we are talking about someone who is not well mentally and they play this it makes no difference to the reality that they are unwell and no Matter what games they watch or engage in they are the issue not the game itself.

A parent who knows that there is an issue with the child like mental health they themselves need to take those precautions that some dont decipher which is reality and which is not. And that comes down to parenting, not the game itself.

Ultimately if we are to begin picking on something it should have to do with not enough resources for the people who are in need of mental health facilities.

Point the blame where it belongs, we need less wait times for people wanting counseling, for police to be educated more on mental health, for more educated doctors and teachers who care and put the patient or student in the right hands when those flags appear.

Blaming Games itself is not where the problem lies. It’s a distraction from what needs to be done.

A New book and Author interview

Link to my interview ;

https://authorsinterviews.wordpress.com/2019/08/05/here-is-my-interview-with-lizy-j-campbell/

So pleased to be recently asked to do an author review from a well known reviewer Fiona McVie.

After adding her recently on Facebook I was asked to do it. And since I have my new book out I thought it fitting and perfectly timed.

This new book is sure to get the imagination of young minds in what I am hoping to be a series of stories of adventures with the two likeable characters in not only just children’s but I am hoping to have a youth book as well as a comic eventually.

This is my fourth and not last book! I am so happy to do something that will make children’s faces light up. The thought of a child loving my books is what I aspire to do. I am eternally grateful and happy to share my books with others. Soon to be audio. Just as soon as I figure it out lol.

Happy reading everyone!

Cheers!!

Second Book – Nanny Bananny

Drum roll please… Well I did another book despite having little to no time! I am very grateful to my traditional Publisher for picking this up!

People often ask me what the differences is between publishers, when I say traditional it means I do not pay to have my book published. The publisher picks it up meaning they do all the work! I wrote it and illustrated it and that’s where it ends, and I love that fact. Newer Publishers expect you to fork out money for your book. SO a tip for all you aspiring authors, try and find a traditional publisher, its cheaper and yes they get some of the profits but remember they are forking out the money in the first place so if you don’t have thousands of dollars to publish a book this is the best way to do it.

Back to my children’s book, This book was inspired by a funny story about a lady who wore a yellow full snowsuit and everyone called her a banana, but it looked really good on her… so I used my imagination to branch off of that. Its funny where the original ideas come from and the story isn’t anything like the concept.

That’s the wonderful thing about having a wild imagination, you never know what will come of it. I hope you all find this book hilarious and share with your friends. Kids will probably (if they haven’t already) start calling there grandma nana banana for a while too, its funny and silly so hopefully they won’t mind.

The story itself set in the city and nanny gets her costume stuck so she has no choice but to walk around town wearing it. You can only imagine the issues she has come about with that!

Go check it out on Amazon!  <<< rub on the word Amazon to take you directly!

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

For one, my kids. They motivate me to dream big and lead by ​example. ​Other sources of inspiration are my constant need to learn and grow as a human being. So anything that contains ​sources of information that will rewire the conditioned thought process to a positive way of thinking is amazing. Mindvalley is one…
