I started my weekly blog series CREATIVE SUGAR to promote positivity and provide a platform for everyone to share their unique stories, knowledge and experiences, showcasing the beauty, connection, and inspiration that exists in our every day.
This week on CREATIVE SUGAR, I'm delighted to share inspiration from Michelle Kral (Mitsib) from Sussex, England.
What’s the greatest advice you’ve been given?
These wise words came from my Dad, "never stop being you just because someone doesn't like something you did or said." Or as he put it in his simple way of speaking....'oh! sod everyone else!
What's some not-so-great advice you've been given?
Some not so great advice was always being told things were not good enough for me. Most of my childhood consisted of things never being good enough, it rubbed off on to me and i started to think i was not good enough!
I still have issues with thinking I am not good enough.....but then what or who do i have to be good enough for?
I have only in recent years realised this and have just concluded... i just need to be good enough for me.
What's Your Biggest Dream?
My biggest dream is just to be able to paint and share my inspirations and encourage and motivate everyone and anyone to embrace their creative side.
My favourite memories are always associated with the beach and sea. As a child we spent long summers at the beach playing in the sand and swimming in the sea. I am lucky to live right near the beach and still all my best memories are the days I can just drive my VW van to the sea and listen to the crashing waves.....pure relaxing enjoyment. I always come away feeling renewed and fresh.
