My Ultimate Mission:
To create products that bring happiness into your life in one way or another.
Hi, I’m Erin!
Are you tired of trying? I know I was. I have been working on it for over 25 years, and ya know what I got from it? Nothing. Well, nothing to show for it. I didn’t get the money I was chasing, that’s for sure. I was tired of keeping a positive attitude. I was tired of trying and failing. I was tired of admitting that what I was working on didn’t pan out – again. I was tired of reading self-help books and thinking I was implementing what I read, only to not get the results I was looking for. I was tired of the constant battle. The fight. The embarrassment. The plummeting self-esteem. The fact that I had to start over again and again.
If I told you that my life had turned around, how skeptical would you be? If you’re anything like I was, I would have been extremely doubtful. I had hit a real slump in my life. Coronavirus was just starting and my stress level was through the roof. I felt like I had so much to do, and too much time to do it. (Anybody remember that feeling?!) I broke down. I mean, I broke down hard. And thank goodness I did. Getting all of that built-up sadness, frustration, anger, and fear out of me and into the light of day, I was able to reach for a better feeling. Well, I was able to take a step in a positive direction.
That step for me was recalling my favorite book of all times, “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Dr. Joseph Murphy. I was reminded of the power that I had. Well, the power that book promised me I had. I had used it with some success throughout the years. More than anything, I loved how encouraging it was for me.
Tacking on another vehicle of improvement, meditation, was the next step. To say I “meditate” is using the definition loosely. I basically lay in bed and think – or try not to think – depending on the purpose of the “meditation”. I meditated and pondered and yearned for that power the book promised me so damn hard!
Within a day, I found another book, “The Power of Awareness” by Neville. I bought it off Amazon (why didn’t I buy stock in that business?) and devoured it when it arrived. I absolutely loved that book. By this time (about a week after my breakdown), things started happening quickly.
I’d have a desire for knowledge and, serendipitously, the answer would arrive. It was one book to a course to another course – I was on fire! Well, I still am on fire. Things haven’t slowed down, and I am grateful for that. Very grateful.
In the spirit of keeping this from getting very long winded, I have a little bit of back story to tell you.
I have a journal that I started on November 13th, 2012. I had told myself that when I finished that journal, I would have become a success. I didn’t really use it for venting, like a normal journal. It was more for figuring out what I should “do” with my life – how I was going to make money. A lot of money.
Through those years (about 7 1/2 years), I tried to start the same kind of websites. I had the same types of ideas. I even, unknowingly, wrote the same booklet TWICE! While all of my ideas ran the same vein, they were with different concepts.
Overall, my main purpose with almost all of my ideas was to help women live a happier life. I would take that purpose and dress it in a method. And that specific method would be what the website was centered on.
Okay, back to present day. In one of the courses I took (Mike Dooley’s “Playing the Matrix for Livelihood”), he said that the only purpose you have here on earth is to be yourself.
How freaking liberating that was!!! All I need to be is me.
Who am I? Well, at the risk of coming across cocky (I’m not a cocky person), I came up with this list: I AM…
A person who likes the woo side of life, but also finding the science behind it – if there is any.
Yeah. That pretty much sums me up. 😉
Just in case you’re wondering, here are my stats:
* I’m a mom to three outstanding adult kids!
* Grandma to two amazing grandkids!
*Married since 1995 to a fantastic man and my best friend!
* Polite (when the occasion calls for it.)
*I have a dark side, which is where my naughty drawings come from.
About the actual website.
This website is the house for all things I create. Some of the creations are completely normal, and others are, well, a bit on the dirty side. That's when I use my alter ego of One Bad Artist. :) Even the dirty things are created out of happiness and in the name of laughter!
Keeping to my mission, the blog has things that will either help you create happiness in your life, or show how I am dealing with life. I am an open book, and it's my belief that if we share not only our good times, but also our bad times, we can grow together.
The blog is also where a lot of freebies end up!
Some categories in the blog...
* Erin's Diary - where I share my ups and downs.
* Magic Recipes - to help you create the life you want. (It's not about food!)
* Amusing Antics - fun things that will get you out of the norm of life.
* Reader's Questions - a place I answer any and all questions from readers. (Make sure to submit your questions!)
* Radical Reviews - I buy stuff and review them so you can find out if they are worth your time. Mostly books, some courses, and products.
