WrecklessArt: 1 Year Anniversary

16 Apr

It has been a while since I’ve posted on my blog. I chose to wait until today to write to you all because I felt like it was the right time. I must say I have missed keeping you all informed on the daily entertainment. I want to share this moment because today is a very special day to me that was made possible by all WrecklessArt’s subscribers, visitors and viewers. I embarked on this blog journey a year ago just wanting to write and share as freely as I could. The desire to inspire others and introduce them to a world I love and admire. Never realizing the effect it would have on my life or opportunities that it would bring about. I pursued a passion I held dear to me, which ultimately changed my course of life to seek my masters in media journalism instead of business, opened my mind to more career choices, while still allowing me to enjoy and love what I do. I thought the risk that I took to get where I am now was something but the choices I have made now are even greater risks than before. I am inspired, encouraged and overwhelmed with the responses I receive from others whom reach out to me. I started off wanting to give to others not realizing that I was going to be the one to receive. Thank you to all those who stand beside me, push me forward even when I’m unsure, inspire me, encourage, teach/mentor me, provide their positive words and constructive criticism. You believing in me polishes this diamond to glisten through all adversities leaving me flawless at all times.

With that I would like you all to continue to be apart of this journey with me as I elevate into new ventures. So if you are subscribed to WrecklessArt, just passing through and like what you see or whatever please join me on my new website:

Taren Guy Instagram

My latest inspiration is inspired by Youtube vloggerentrepreneur, media personality and founder of  Faces of Autism Taren Guy. I was flowing through the pictures on my instagram timeline yesterday at I came across the one above that Taren posted. It stuck out to me. It’s not the first time I’ve every read a quote like this but it really hit home I think because of the day I had. She shared this so I wanted to pass it on. It was as if I was looking out of a dirty window that this quote helped me see clear through. If you’re doing something that makes you unhappy or your just unhappy with a situation, change it. I agree life is entirely too short to stay in unhappy moments. Life is given to enjoy and be merry. Channel your positive energy and surround yourself with those who posses that same positivity.

Thanks Taren Guy for this Wreckless inspiration!

Wreckless Inspiration: Happy New Year 2013!

1 Jan

“2013 is simply a new year and the next phase!”

Happy New Year to all! I hope everyone brought their new year in fun, safe and with your love ones. I see a lot of people talking about what their new year resolutions are but personally I don’t make new years resolutions anymore. Most of the time people make them and they usually don’t stick to them for whatever reasons. In 2012, I made the choice to put in motion some goals that I dreamt of such as this blog and it has grown far beyond what I imagined. With that being said I wanted to share my insight with you for this year. I am declaring 2013 as Lucky ’13 the Year of Riley. I’m going to continue to push through and elevate to the next level with the goals I got the ball rolling with in 2012. Last year was about setting plans into motion this year it will be all about executing them. I have so much in store for this year and I cannot wait to fully pursue each one of my goals and share them with you all. I say no matter what this year has in store the good, bad, stressful times or happy times I am going to love every moment of life. I recommend you all to do the same. Have an awesome, prosperous, and healthy Lucky ’13!

Be wary of the company you keep


Most people have goals to reach a dream. Sadly many people get deterred from those goals and forget they once dreamt of more. They tend to get comfortable and content with the position their in. For more reasons than one. The very thing a person wants could be the same reason they stray away from it because fear of failure or even the fear of success. Be mindful of the company you keep in your presence, they will only do two things, contribute towards your success or become your downfall. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. You cant expect to go places if you’re in an environment with no motivation. Many people who have no destination feed off of your disappointments and silently watch and wish for you to fail. Never give up. People will say no and you will have moments when you feel as if you’ve failed. That will only teach you what you didn’t know and help make you better and wiser. It will give you the skills to strategically make the right moves next time. If you’re on that path to what your success is you can’t always take everyone with you. It takes a profound amount of sacrifice, which will be more difficult than you may start out thinking, in order to make those dreams your everyday reality. Sometimes you may feel alone or even giving up but if you truly believe in yourself, which has to come first, you have to believe in you before anyone else will. That has to be a priority. Than that dream can come into full fruition. In the process of doing all of those things you have to be willing to weed through those in your garden and cut them out or they’ll kill your blossom.

Pride…it could be your downfall

Pride is a powerful emotion. Don’t allow it to control your life. If there is something or someone you lost because of it, fight! We all can be very prideful some more than others. We have to learn that sometimes we have to put our pride aside or else it could become your demise. Pride will have you without or all alone and even though you put on one of your 1,000 faces, deep down inside your dying. If you’ve made a mistake, admit it forget what anyone else may think or say and go after what your heart truly desires because your pride will leave you with a lifetime of regrets. It’s up to you to decide whether you can deal with that or not because in the end you might only have the company of your pride

There are very important things I want to leave this world knowing but overall it is that I was here…Yes! just like the Beyonce song. Two things I want to know is I will be missed and that I was loved. I also want to leave behind to those who’s lives I’ve touched and will touch in this world is that I cared and loved the best way I knew how. I believe it’s more important to leave something of substance verses material. Materials will fade away but the comfort of knowing the positive emotions that someone felt and was laid to rest with is way more rewarding to me because it gives comfort and it is something that you can have for a lifetime. No one can ever take that from you, it can never be lost, it’s just something that won’t diminish over time. I don’t just want to be here on this Earth roaming. I want to do more than exist. I want to live life, I want to leave my mark, I want to be remembered. I tend to think of this from time to time…ask yourself what do you want to be remembered for and how do you want others to remember you?

Like Kanye West said “Give people the flowers while they can still smell them!”

 Protect your dreams

I know I have been gone for a while but I am back! I’ve missed blogging and It is now time to get back to work =). First form of business, I want to inspire you all of course! I want to let everyone know, if you have a dream or you have a goal you want to achieve, anything you want to do, you can do it. Never allow someone else to take YOUR dream and disregard it. Anything you put your mind to, you can do it. I know that sounds cliché but believe me it’s the truth! Patience, patience, patience and more patience. Don’t expect your dreams to come into fruition overnight. At times we see others success and we yearn for our dreams to come to life as theirs did but we just see the glitz and glamour not all the trials and tribulations that they went through to have gained their success. People will tell you no, you will have failures, people will even think you’re crazy but don’t give up. Learn, grow, and be innovative to create your own route for your baby. Today we are a society who has the world at our fingertips, everything is literally just about a click away. I recently graduated with my Bachelors degree and that was a goal for me, at times it was tough and I was doubtful but I kept pushing no matter what was going on in my life. I stayed focused, dedicated, and I sacrificed in order to get to this point. Now don’t misunderstand, this point is just a stepping stone to get where I want to be, it’s still a journey that must be taken in order to reach the achievements I’m striving for. With that being said, overall you have a dream(s) and in order to fulfill that dream in entirety you start off by setting goals. Make short-term goals that are achievable over time and before you know it your dream that started out as just a little idea will be far beyond what your beautiful mind could ever imagine. Their will always be people who try to distract you from your dreams/goals and the best way to prove them wrong is to stay persistent, focused, take risk and you will have to be willing to make major sacrifices in order to get what you want. Choose to now allow fear or laziness or any other reason be a crutch for you to settle in life period. Strive 100% for whatever it is that your soul desires. I’ll leave you with this last thing, imagine you wanting it so bad that it’s like your oxygen, without it you can’t live. If you can’t imagine doing anything else in life and completely being purely satisfied you’re probably selling yourself short of your own destiny. Take your dream, protect it and make it your reality!
