Oh to be able to feel the delicious sense of being ALIVE that arises from the process of exploration...
Oh to be AWARE of what this day has in store for us....
Oh, and to learn how to sit with those uncomfortable moments that make you want to tear out your hair when the art or the report or the talk goes "wrong" or it feels like time has been "wasted" or absolutely nothing is coming to you and you feel like you are tirelessly spinning in circles. To learn how to be with those and yet to keep going....
To keep painting. Or writing. Or running. Or napping. Or doing whatever it is that your instinct tells you to do because it is in harmony with the moment. We find a guide once we are tapped into that part of ourselves beyond the shoulds and the fears and the ego-driven wants. If we stay in harmony with that guide, the questions of what and where and how and even why do not need to be asked.
And along the way, it is so important to celebrate and support others who are on this journey. Who get up, again and again, and keep going.
One of my fellow travelers on this consciously creative journey is Theresa with Faerie Moon Creations. Theresa is not only seriously multi-talented herself (check out her Esty shop! ) but she focuses on featuring other artists to spread the love. (Talented and generous - what a combination!!)
Recently I was so thrilled to receive this from Theresa:
It is finding a place of honor in my home. It not only celebrates her talent (she took that photo!), inspires me (the quote? "Just living is not enough, said the butterfly, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower" - Hans Christian Anderson), but warms my heart as I am reminded of her kindness & journey.
Thank you deeply, Theresa.
