Be Gone!!!... with the Negative!

(Watch Your Back Gal's..see the girl with the mean look to the right)
Okay .. I normally like to Share with you something Up-lifting & Positive

But the sad truth is that negative energy is among us and it is so important that you can look pass it, learn from it and move forward and turn it into a positive thing!

AMEN SISTA!

When I feel attacked by uglyness which is pretty rare...because I was always taught to practice the golden rule...

"Do onto others as you would have them do unto you"

At first your like..."Seriously" ???? What is going on here?

But kick it in gear & stand-up for what is right, so others may not have to experiance this.

Their are many creative people out there that become discourage when someone feels like they have to copy what your doing.....Yea... I know people get inspired by different ones and I think that is fine...but when it is done out of jealousy & spitefulness is when it is not right.
Or when they talk to you negative about others behind there backs.. don't think their not talking about you.
Watch your back...& your friends

I know many of you have stopped sharing your passion to others on your blogs etc... in fear that their is someone out there to steal your creative ideas....

But girls...don't let that stifle you from the God given gift you have!

We all know who is the "True Artist" & the ones that are the wanna-be's.


"For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his uniquity be found to be hateful"
EKKKKKKKKK!!!( Don't want to be this person)
So stand up straight.... hold your head up and smile from ear to ear.
Show yourself PROUD!!!!
To all my Glamarella Girls !
Sherry

Hi Sherry!
Very well done!
It seems like maybe the problem is it's easier for some to be negative rather than encouraging... encouragement is putting yourself out there. Offering ideas...amybe giving an idea away...that takes confidence.
That's a trait that is usually lacking in negative people.

xo,

Glamarella Junk said...

LOVE YA SHERRY!!!! And I SO UNDERSTAND....happens to everyone at some point or another...some of us more than once. (me)
Please know...you need to cut loose the negativity as it just stiffels our creativity.
Life is too short, I learned that after fighting for my life with cancer!!!! And now, I turn my back on negative back biting people. They aren't worth it....we have so much more to give our energy to.
Love ya bunches, Amy
(PS...check out my blog....I have you on my post and I have added you to my blog list on the side)

Sherry,
I have a few friends that have gone to the barn and since have been visiting the blogs and love yours in particular. They said there is a new comment that I should go take a look at. I could not believe that you would display something like this on your blog. This kinda stuff reminds me of all the things that gets reported in the media that the teenagers do on facebook etc. Obviously, something has affected you but what happened to you having the courage and decency to go to that person and either tell them yourself to their face or at least leave a personal e-mail. If you feel like leaving a message like this on your blog then it is pretty important and why would you do it in such a cowardly way.
Sherry, you will be successful because of your hard work and dedication to what you do. I think everyone and probably including me at times goes a little to far with thinking people are copying them. If you were to be honest really honest with yourself then I know you would have to admit that you have done it at one time or another. I have come from the background of retail but more on the garmento side and I can't believe in the world of crafts (I am sorry I don't know what else to call it), how mean and critical people become. I know you have said that you are a Christian and I heard this Christian Pastor talking one time and he said you don't need to tell everyone that you are Christian you should just act like one. I know I will see you around and I do wish the best for you and I know you will have your success because you are very talented. I hope this does not affend you it is not meant to.
Take care,
Dyanna

Hi Dyanna,
Thank-you for your opinion...I'm speaking in "Gereral situations"...I haven't mentioned any names or places...I want to make that very clear. But I assure you...I always confront my situation Face to Face anything that confuses me or is uncomfortable..(Hey I'm Italian... LOL) No seriously If I was a coward I would run away & hide...and not face negative non-sence...I'm standing up for all the gals that maybe feel their alone in simular situations...Well their not. Now that you mentioned it, I recently saw on facebook You-Tube how girls can be mean to others....vey sad indeed andpeople are starting to do something about it! Nice chatting ..see you around!

Hey my dear friend, Sherry. I just want to say THANK YOU for posting this. Not only is it very true and you know all that I have been through, but it was very classy, as well. No, you did not mention any names and no, you weren't acting like a "teenager on Facebook", so as far as that novel of a comment above, not really sure what to make of that? All I can say is that I have your back as always and keep doing what you do best because at the end of the day, it's just not important and it stems from others insecurities and jealousy. We as artists all take inspiration from others...it's called following a trend. So what if you have something that looks like someone else's? They probably got it from someone else and so on. It just is what it is. Don't let those immature jealous brats bring ya down. In fact, you were way too nice....I would have called them out with references! LOL! Love ya, girl...tia

Hey Girl,
One of the things I love and admire most about you is your ability to stay positive in negative situations. Anyone who knows you or reads your blog should
be able to see that. You have been a cheerleader for many people and I for one appreciate that.
xoxo,
Sandra

Sherry,
I enjoyed the post because it's encouraging! Positivity and support should be important factors in every womans life. Although, one of those responses was of poor taste. It's childish and hypocritical for a person to tell you to act like a Christian instead of talking about it. If that's the case, practice what you preach and if you come across someone's PUBLIC BLOG that you dislike, pay it no mind and continue living your life instead of leaving demeaning energy on it.
It is admirable, not cowardly, that you would use your blog as a caution. There is no shame in trying to warn other women of things you may have unfortunately experienced in the past.
Aside from my two cents, I'd like to say I really admire a lot of the work you've done! Creative, vintage, and classy crafts with flare, amazing! Keep doing what you do and have a blast doing it :)

Glamarella Junk said...
