“Cigarette trousers & pleated blouse”

“The artist in you creates while the critic in you destroys.” – Unknown

White cigarette pants + nude blouse (4)Greetings VersiDivas & gents!

We always hear people say they can be their own worst critic and even though some of us don’t say it in those words, we tend to set limitations and unnecessary boundaries in our minds that lock away our talents and creativity. We have so much potential for greatness but we underestimate our abilities instead of tapping into our inner genius to bless the world with our innate gifts.
Unbeknownst to me, I realized that I was doing this when I went back and read an old post that I published over the summer. While reading, I thought to myself: “As much as I claim to despise writing, this was a really well written article.” And then I thought about the many times others have complimented me on my writings and how I dismissed the compliments because I never believed that I had it in me.

I may not be an author or a poet and I may not have the desire to be a writer of any kind, but that will not stop me from using or perfecting this skill. From this day onward, I vow to no longer let the critic in me destroy the artist in me.

I love rocking my favorite color combo – white and nude, with a pop of blue accessories and this awesome lippie perfect to welcome the autumn months. I fell in love with this darker shade on me. Will definitely invest in more vampy lipsticks.

    I’m that way about singing… I always have excuses about why I don’t sing in public and I hide behind choral singning. Love your necklace

      Use your gifts girl. I’m over here wishing I could sing but I’m wise enough to know my singing skills or lack thereof are only for the shower lol:) It’s a way of thanking God when we use our talents to bless others. Sing on girl. Sing!

      Hey! Stop the violence. Lol

      Math was always my thing so I figured it had to be one or the other but who says you can’t be great at multiple things? 😉 New perspective!

        Exactly! You are capable of doing both, you just love one more than the other :-).

          That sums it up 😉 Speaking of which, I still haven’t seen your poems on this blog of yours… It’s not too late to start.
