Blogging 101: Introduction To Damita’s Life

blogging-university-101-badgeI have had my Damita’s Life blog for a while. I have used it to showcase my photos and my personal journey through life. I will be participating in Blogging 101 to work on my blogging skills. I hope you as a follower will enjoy my growth and stories.

Hi everyone my name is Damita. I’m a little behind but I was determine to get this introduction done today.

My blog, Damita’ Life, was started because I wanted a place to show my journey as a new aspiring artist,  things in my life I find interesting and just my overall life. Because I have a business blog, I wanted a place that was fun to share with others.

I have many paper journals that are private so I thought I would share my blog because I like connecting to people with the same interest and who I can learn from. I will most likely continue to share my art and things in my life.

I hope by the end of this I will have a solid blog with content people enjoy and a writing schedule that will become second nature. I would also like my blog to reach more people.

Health: Self-Care

LoveAndSelfCareHave you heard the term self-care? I learned about self-care during an evaluation I had years ago with my supervisor. The last question she asked me was “What are you doing for your self-care goal?” I did not know how to respond, but I had to create a goal that would help me take care of myself.

I have developed art as my self-care. I started learning about art and creating art last year. It helped me so much to relax and walk away from my job. I am continuing this goal in 2015. I found it to be important because it allows me to have down time and concentrate on something that makes me feel good and grow. I joined a Urban Sketches group, which I love, because I can be around other artist. I joined a demo group at Jerry’s Artarama where I learn different techniques and how to use different tools and lastly my Creative Mingle group is a group of women who come together and create all kinds of art. I love it. Self Care b31be73f21f5a6dba6eae02738798fd1

Self care can be anything you enjoy that will help alleviate stress and help you feel good. Some ideas I use is journaling, petting and playing with my dogs, walking and talking with a friend just to name a few.

If you are looking for more tips for self-care, this article will give you some great ideas.

So what will be your self-care goal this year?
