Article 2

I’m here at work thinking about things… I don’t want to be sitting at somebody else’s desk, at somebody else’s establishment, working for them. This isn’t to say that I’m not thankful and grateful to have a job but still..its always good to want better/more for yourself. I’m thinking through things while I’m mindlessly doing my morning work tasks, literally thinking in full detail about my personal life. Its like…okay, I made my logo three years ago, maybe four and I really haven’t done much with it..then I get frustrated that things aren’t father along than they are etc and its just like damn! Why tf have I not had this mindset this entire time…I was lazy for too long!..pisses me off honestly but now that I’m on my grind for good; its energizing.

I’m thinking about other stuff too though bc in order to have things flow smoothly, finances need to be handled appropriately. I have two loans I’m currently paying off so its probably smart to pay those off before I take out another loan for xyz. I have a lot up my sleeve for the very near future so I gotta make sure my coins are straight. It honestly feels super empowering to be on top of my shit. When I walk out of my room and look at a kitchen full of food I feel proud as hell of myself. Bills paid-check. Food in the fridge-check. Fresh laundry-check. Clean dishes-check. Vehicle check up to date-check. Money in the bank-check. Savvy little home in a safe quiet neighborhood-check… like yes, libby you go! Ah the 10 year old me would be proud.

On the other hand,I’m really hard on myself but its for good reason, its to keep myself learning and growing and moving through life properly (by my own standard of proper).I feel like a piece of shit when I’m just sitting..which isn’t good bc I need to remind myself of balance: balance of work and rest so rest is needed, rest is self-loving so I’ve gotta work on my mindset about that but you know….anyways.

People get so side tracked with everything in our face these days, so caught up in what everybody else is doing, saying, wearing, etc like chilllllll why are you so worried about them? You don’t control them; you control you-take care of you- worry about you. It sounds easy but people get so caught up in pointless shit then wonder why they aren’t farther in life…its all goes back to my first article talking about the energy you put out into the universe. That shits not a game. Its not a trend, it IS what it IS.

Branching off from ” worry about you”: make sure you’re doing what makes you happy majority of your day and if you’re not currently where you want to be then i hope you’re at least making plans, writing notes, learning, reading, and seeing what you need to do to get you where you want to be because your overall happiness is so important. ” A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.” and its thats simple.

Article 1

On a daily basis, I sway on a thin line between being really open and honest with my go abouts and things and then on the other hand I wanna be mysterious and somehow build a following that way. In my head it made sense for years and seeing as Im here, typing this way, I guess I’ve chosen the side of the line where I’m gonna be pretty open with my life through these articles..alright cool. Better.

I am Libby. My actual first name is Libby-Elise, ive always been asked if its short for Olivia, or I have a major change in mindset lately, and by lately I mean for a solid 6 plus months now and its really fucking refreshing. ( if my mom reads this article, which I know shes going to bc shes supportive af- then shes going to say something about me saying the word ‘ fucking’- but now she might not lol) Back to my mindset. Its really damn refreshing to realize that the amount of effort you put out is all of the good energy that you’ll get in return..pause.. I I’ll rewind. I always knew I was suppose to work for myself, to create a brand, to help people in some way and I’d start things then half way finish them before I was on to the next project etc. It honestly took me some years to figure out that I needed a change of mindset and some new energy.I was reading different articles one night and I kept seeing people talking about a book that was the teachings of a universal law; law of attraction. And I know its lowkey a trend to be ‘woke’ these days..well woke or shook..everybodies shook these days smh..but, the law of attraction means that like attracts like: good thoughts, feelings attract more of that into your life and vice versa. Okay so the same works with energy. The energy you emit is the energy you’ll receive. So finally, after feeling kind of lost on my grind for so long I decided to buy the book and its done me so much good. First off, it feels so much better to feel good majority of the time you know what I mean. I’m not for drama, I’m not really for name calling or all that other shit bc why? That’s sooo much negativy energy I’d be emiting into the universe and its literally commenting me in those negative ass feelings. You get back what you put out.

Libby-Elise Bowman. Shorten it and you have lebowman, pronounced EL- E- BOWE-MAN. It is who I am, and as I evolve and change..grow, so will it, and honestly..I want people to know me better..feel more comfortable with me……
