Okay, so my bio. I guess it's time to write something here I suppose; some boring stuff no one will ever likely read.
I believe in and worship God, my religion is Love, my hero/mentor is my beloved Mother, and my world is my daughter.
Being creative is at the core of my being and has been for my entire life, whether through art-art, writing (poetry, quotes, stories, articles), music, etc.. Anyone interested in getting to know who I am, can simply learn this through my art and writing. My "Gifted By God" poem sums me up pretty well for starters.
Interests? I have many. I am nor have I ever been 'bored'. I've had and have plenty of boring tasks to do, but I'm never without something 'to' do. If anything, I never have enough time to do and accomplish all I would like to.
Besides being creative, I love animals and nature. There's an element of peaceful serenity around and among nature and animals that cannot be found around and among humans, because humans judge, assume, compare, etc., while animals simply accept us 'as we are'. Humans could learn so much from animals, but humans have egos that supercede and override human intelligence and so, humans keep making the same mistakes over and over, never learning from them. Prime example: How many years have humans been on Earth? Yet, humans still attack and kill humans! Shouldn't we humans have learned by now that wars and killing and violence solve absolutely nothing!? If we humans were so intelligent, we would have figured this out by now and would be seeking a different and better course of action. But here we are, STILL, still humans are committing against other humans such heinous, atrocious, and barbaric acts!! Meanwhile, the human ego tells us, we humans are wonderful, intelligent, and the highest level of life forms on Earth.
As my daughter wrote on her sixth grade paper, "I am ashamed to be classified as a human, because humans do horrible things to other humans, to innocent animals, and to our Earth." We humans should walk and bow down in shame. Instead, humans are arrogant and greedy, among many other self (human) serving traits. For a sixth grade student to feel the need to express such a thought paints a deplorably grave picture of the human race.
Back to interests... I like to cook/bake, tend flowers, plants, and gardens, play music on my keyboards, read, especially to gain knowledge in general and about health and nutrition, world issues, and to seek the truth.
I have no interest whatsoever in following, paying mind to, or looking up to movie actors/actresses, athletes, millionaires/billionaires, etc.. They are, after all, just people, no better than you or I. Actors/actresses are paid handsomely "to act, to pretend, to play a role, to be fake". That's all. Athletes are paid to "play a sport". That's all. Filthy rich people are wealthy simply because they've learned well how to suck money from others. Others who are highly revered and classified as so important, such as the president or the pope, have a job to do, just like the majority of the rest of us do. So, what makes them better? Their position? I think not.
On the other hand, those I do look up to and admire are those who put their lives on the line and serve to protect us, to rescue and help us in emergency and critical situations. These people 'deserve' to be honoured, respected, and admired. Human priorities are really messed up.
I am a GAZILLION percent AGAINST the New World Order (NWO)!!! I make a point to learn all I can about this from non-MSM sources and then share and write about what I learn, am able to discover/uncover. For those who don't know what the NWO is all about, it's about combining ALL nations of the world into ONE nation to be ruled by the one percent elitists. If it ever comes to fruition, we can kiss humanty good-bye forever. It is paramount we seek and learn all the hidden, ugly truth.
Now, to mention some other of my online endeavors. I have four main blogs (Blogspot/Blogger): Artsieladie-Heartbeats (my art, writing, poetry, quotes), Artsieladie Rhymetyme (my poetry with some of my quotes), Artsieladie Quotes (my quotes), and Artsieladie Creative Corner (to feature and share my computer graphics - on hold atm). My main website is: www.artsieladie.com but I've done little with it for a long time.
For the sake of giving readers a little insight behind so much of my poetry, quotes, and other writings, I'm mentioning briefly things I've gone through, been subjected to in my life, beginning in early childhood. I want and expect no sympathy for all I've been through and experienced in life, both good and bad and in between. All are blessings including the hard and painful lessons and all have provided me with tremendous insight, affording me the ability to be compassionate, understanding, forgiving, and so on. I am and feel "Gifted By God". It's all about pursuing and cultivating the right perspective.
I've been used and abused both physically and emotionally, beaten to within an inch of my life, violated in every possible way, severely ostracised, bullied, and betrayed by people I should have been able to trust, like family members, boyfriend, husband, so-called friends, and yes, even teachers, grossly so. They are scars I have lived with and will live with for the rest of my life. Hence, why I find peace and solitude surrounded by nature and animals. As a child, being with animals and nature was my 'safe haven' and where my art and writing began to blossom. The beauty and peace I savoured surrounded by nature and animals is reflected specifically in my art. It is also for this reason, I choose for my art and poetry to be representative of me rather than a picture. The true me doesn't show in a photo but through my art and writing.
Let's just say, I've had a crystal clear picture painted for me many times of what type of person NOT to be like and what traits NOT to feed, a wonderfully vivid and saving "silver lining". Having been blessed and gifted with these horrible experiences, it has in return given me the capacity, the ability, to have and show compassion, understanding, forgiveness, etc..My best platform to use is through my writing. God not only blessed me with the Gift of using words, He also blessed me with the material I would need to write about and share with others. Perspective!
I will always be rooting for and defending the underdog, the shunned, the made fun of, the abused, the neglected, the targets of jealousy, and so on. I've been many times in these same shoes. I can so feel their pain, anguish, and frustration.
I cannot say all I have without mentioning my beloved Mother. She too, had a difficult life and suffered much of the same as I. But she was a lady of integrity, virtue, with principles and convictions she lived by, along with a strong faith in God. She endured much to provide for and protect her ten children. Even through times when we had little, she would always find ways to help and give to others. She loathed lying and cheating and selfishness. Through all of her struggles, she maintained being a person I could and would admire, adore, look up to, and try to example my own life after her virtuous example, and so, I always try to honour and show my deep respect for her by being the best I can be. This is why I write my Mother is my hero, my mentor. She painted for me the crystal clear picture of who to be like as opposed to those who did the opposite as aforementioned. It was up to me to choose which example to follow.
I feel not the need to waste energy on trying to create a fake version of myself. Why would I? Trying to be the best of who I am requires and deserves my effort and energy and it's an ongoing, full time job. Being fake to me, is pointless and a waste of time. Even though I feel so out of place on the Internet among the countless fakes, pretenders, imposters, etc., I will never compromise or disrespect myself to allow myself to be 'accepted'. "I'd rather stand alone and on the side of truth than be among the crowd where the alternative is accepted, widely is allowed."
My Mom passed away in 2007. There is not a day that goes by I don't miss her. I'm learning still to live with the grief of not having her here in my life, but I know it's a grief I will never get over.
So, here you have it, my bio. I suppose a bit lengthy for many and even boring, but it's honest and forthcoming. It's the only way I know how to be and wish to be. God bless! ♥
