Chew On A Lima Bean Some Time ?!

Hey World,

Welcome to 2016. My name is Pebble$ but today I want to awaken and embrace my inner Camilla Cream.

I want to make it a habit to listen to kids stories throughout 2016, I need to nurture my inner child and creativity.

I want to thank Camilla Cream for teaching me that in my 2016, I should continue not to care whether people like what I like, THAT AIN'T NONE OF MY BUSINESS ! If you're looking to help build me you are more than welcome to come into my space as for all that other pettiness take a ticket, park your mouth and take several seats. You have an opinion, yes it is very much respected but don't dump truck negativity into my pool of kindness.

Through life we compromise ourselves at one interval or another whether by going forward with that action or for a second thinking it through in our minds. Unlike Camilla Cream, we are lucky enough not to be punished by the presence of stripes BUT the absence of those stripes have kept us in unhappiness trying to please others when our first happy customer of any opinion should be ourselves. Take the step outside of your sadness and make yourself happy by going through with a decision that your heart and mind follow, NOT anybody else's but YOURS. 

Camilla Cream also shows us what we do to ourselves every time we decide to suppress the desire for what we really want and place the wants of others in higher priority - through the scene in class when they were saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Do you notice that every time somebody said what they wanted to see it appeared on Camilla's skin NOT their own skin ? She wanted to please others with her outfit so much that when it came to really pleasing them through the polka-dots, checkerboard and breaking out in stars that appeared on her skin she realized how humiliating it was and, how no joy can be derived from such requests.

Looking at this instance, it's funny how what others do causes you the problems and even though you're trying to satisfy them you have to deal with the problem. STOP! being somebody's experimental model with negativity being spoken into your cloud with words that can break you to a point where you're not sure if repair is even possible.

You must realize that people cannot simply request of you to be any other way than being yourself and expect you to still be the same person, it's impossible! You also cannot expect to please others and think that you will be happy with such decisions. Every pattern that Camilla broke out in represents every form of silenced rebellion your true self makes when you decide that your life is meant to be lived for somebody else or some other people. When you silence these parts of your true self, you constantly kill off a little bit of yourself and a part of you goes into hibernation. Be careful :

When you get to that point in life where you constantly find yourself living to please others, start to worry and hope that you get the opportunity to ask for those Lima beans AND to be asked the question of: "Is there anything I can get you, sweetheart?"

Whether you're a kid or a teenager or an adult, Camilla Cream takes one for the team so you don't have to make such mistakes. 

For teenagers the lima beans of your life might be your hair, your style, your values, your likes, your dislikes - which may be affected by your peers who don't agree with your choices but whoever made them, the decision-makers of your life needs to be put in check. Most likely the person who gave them that authority is you, it doesn't matter if you've already given them that position, take it back ! Take back the controls from their hands and hold onto those things in your youth while you can - there's a possibility you will see changes in your self-esteem (positive of course) once you do what brings you joy and makes you feel more like yourself. 

For the adults out there your lima beans face you more every single day. You have values, morals, work ethics, drive, visions, ways of life and many more things which you cannot allow another individual to suppress. You have come too far in this life from your days as a kid and your high school days as a teenager, for you to allow another simple being dictate the script on how you run YOUR business. Don't compromise who you are to gain people's favor because you will lose those people once you get tired of the compromise - 
you build on compromise, you'll be broken and destroyed on compromise !

In any situation in life you need to have some good people, the good counsel that surrounds you - you should only have a few in this circle who will bring you back to yourself when you lose your main focus and tell you the truth. Don't limit yourself from reaching a greater height just because your wants and desires don't fit in with the lower standards of the world.

To end this post today here's a little something I want you to remember:

" Just for your information there is no psychologist, therapist, yoga instructor, doctor, lawyer, teacher etc. etc. in this life that can solve the problems for which you already have the solutions for. None of those folks can fix what you need to fix for yourself, none of them and I mean none of them have lived life as YOU so therefore cannot identify what sits at the core of your compass for living. Whatever is the equivalent of lima beans in your life will more times than ever be the solution to your problem - identify, value and embrace your lima bean of life ! "

Everybody needs to chew on some Lima Beans some time and swallow that bitter truth. A word of encouragement never hurt nobody !

This post was inspired by "A Bad Case Of Stripes" By David Shannon .

I want to publish a book, it will be a collective  of my work from the start of my journey at 8 years old til Summer 2015. Hold me to it !
