Untitled post

  Hey you guys! This is going to be a very different post than what I've ever posted on this blog publicly. 

   I've been wanting to write about how times have changed our once small sewing community, into something large and ever growing sewing community. I love seeing the vision behind others creativity, it's one of the things about sewing that I love most, the creativity.    

  However, It's becoming so disheartening to see and witness other people, women, bash other women for their choices in how they choose to have their voice and creativity to be heard.   

   I feel that no one has the given right to try and diminish and criticize a person to potentially  hinder another persons voice, without truly knowing a person's story. You never know the person who you criticize for living lavishly, could have been homeless at one point, or not knowing where their next meal was coming from, or the woman who you criticize for wearing clothing tighter than you ever would.

   Yet, you don't know that this person, at one point, may have had body issues and finally realized how awesome they were all along. I also believe that you don't owe anyone an explanation for how you choose to have your voice be heard, and that people will always find something to criticize. What I'm saying, is before you are so quick to judge and criticize a person; please reflect on the issues of oneself that could cause a person to harshly criticize a person for embracing all that they are! It makes you wonder? Is this coming from a place of "I shoulda, coulda, woulda" if I didn't allow anyone to hinder my voice. But, if this you! It's never to late to find your voice again!

  However,  I want to encourage anyone who has ever dealt with negativity from anyone trying to hinder their voice, their greatness, the magic that makes you, you! I want you to know to never allow another person to silence "your" voice, your creativity, your greatness!  Be great on purpose, and really give them something to talk about HA! Ps. This is not personal, just was on my heart..

             As always, "Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. Thanks for sharing what's on your heart. People are going to have their own opinion, but I'm not going to let that stop me from doing what I want.

    1. Thank you elle3270! That's so true, people will always form an opinion, and kudos to you for not letting that stop your greatness!

    1. sewrelax, I just felt this conversation was needed in our community. Thank your support.

  3. Candice, I TOTALLY agree! Thanks for posting this!

  4. Love this! You said a mouthful and it was full of truth! Thanks for the encouraging words.

  5. Well said, and much needed. I just hope all will take to heart what you expressed. I see it so much with attitudes to one blogger in particular. I even found myself feeling that way but never expressing it to that person. The old adage "if your don't have something good tone say, say nothing at all" comes to mind.
    We should be encouraging each other. The whole point of sewing is to express your own personal style right?

    1. Thanks Angie! I agree, "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all". We should, indeed, encourage one another and allow people freedom to express themselves as they see fit.

  6. Candice, this is very well said and should be read by all! It's a terrible shame in our society when someone (anyone) feels the need for this to be said. We should all be supportive in nature and this world would be a much better place!

    1. Myra, I agree, that we all should be more supportive of one another, it truly would be an amazing thing!
