“In The Fold” A 100 Days Origami Project Day 8 – Cats

In The Fold 100 Days Origami Day 8

4/26/16 It is surprising that with today’s technology we can now understand cats (or at least i hope). Nonetheless, we may have a harder time listening to something more closer to ourselves. How about our hearts? When was the last time you sat still and listened to your own heartbeat? They say the moment you do, you are meditating and becoming one with your soul.

We sometimes become so lost in this world we check-in on Facebook but forget to check-in with ourselves. Ignoring the signals our body sends us, or the awkward feeling in our chest that might be our intuition pulling at our spirit….

Take the time to LISTEN to your heart. It might be saying something important.

In The Fold 100 Days Origami Day 7

4/25/16 Now after that history lesson of pigeons, has your thoughts on a pesky rock bird changed? As humans, we judge everything by their appearance forgetting where the origin lies. From humans, to ideas, inventions, software, and even nature there is substantial history of everything’s existent that we must never take for granted.

In you lies thousands of years of history. The very makeup of who you are is molded, cultivated, and birth from many minds, hands, hearts, tears and even blood shed. Never take for granted that you are extraordinary even if it contradicts or defies what society may say.

Never let society define WHO YOU ARE. There are thousands of years of history inside you.

In The Fold 100 Days Origami Day 6

4/24/16 Sometimes I feel like I just can’t win.  Where life seems to fire at me like it’s Open Narz Season or something. Do you feel the same way? Where whatever you do you just can’t seem to make things better or it seems nothing changes the current situation? Well, let me tell you. Even if the situation can’t be controlled, your mindset can. An awful day at work, can turn into a challenging day at work with a different mindset. Once you change how you view a situation, the situation changes to bend to your will.

Change your MIND, Change your WILL.

“In The Fold” A 100 Days Origami Day 2 Cherry Blossoms

For only a few months do cherry blossoms illuminate the world with their color. Such fragile plants that spark the beginning of spring. Their colors and presence are so strong and vivacious but yet so short lived. So too are our lives, mere glimpse in the fabric of time that to not live as vivid is such a waste.

Live the of a Cherry Blossom. Full of color, impression, vibrancy and never let the shortness of time catch up with you potential.

About 100 Days Of Origami

This project is not a cry for attention. It’s not a attempt to ask for anything from anyone. This is an experiment to overcome my fear of rejection. To turn back the time to before I lost the courage to express my truest nature before fear stepped in. This is a journey to conquer my fear through the art of origami and self-expression.

Every origami will be different, with a thought process of my life from this fear. I hope to understand this fear and grasp the processed establishment. To breakdown my fear of rejection with an intuitive voice.

“In The Fold” A 100 Days Origami Project To Combat Anxiety

When I was in elementary school, I use to borrow origami books from the library a lot. I would make origami for decoration, function, and eventually profit. I charged a quarter for a cup origami so kids could neatly throw away pencil shavings after sharpening. I learned how to do so many different types of animals and cool objects that I would gift family and teachers with one daily.

When I left elementary school and entered an all girls middle school, my world changed. I left behind all my friends but was thinking I’d continue my identity in a new school. I could still maintain my integrity, my hobbies, and find like minded kids who shared my tastes in Sonic, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and running. I would find other girls that I could relate and we would express our purest nature that made us genuine beings.

I was Wrong.

From the 5th grade till I graduated high school, I was bullied, shunned, humiliated, sexually molested, robbed, beaten, and harassed by girls. I had no friend I could turn to for support, protection, or comfort. In the eight years I endured this, I lost my integrity and a fear of rejection was birthed. With it came a world of anxiety, self hatred, a desire for extreme solitary, an escape to the online cyber world of role play, and what felt like endless years of grieving for companionship. I’d escape with gaming and anime, but that only widen the gap between me and the world to the point I forfeited my attempts to fit in. I knew I would never fit in…

I want to become the friend I didn’t have to someone. A lonely girl like me, desperate for a friend.
