The professional writing folder and sometimes a purple pen (as purple is my favorite color) have come out. Time to start my blog. The decision has been made to COMMIT to being serious about sharing the words and the art that come from my heart... a heart full of love.
This concrete decision has taken a long time as I have struggles to be who I am... sincerely. Instead of "hiding out", I choose to be the full expression of myself, little by little. It certainly has not been the norm to do what I love and love my life of fulfilling my soul's purpose while helping others. As I have grown to accept always being DIFFERENT from others, I continue to write and paint with hopes of inspiring others with this contagious shining energy producing freedom and happiness that was developed from within.
Writing a blog sounds simple, doesn't it? It is similar to writing a journal, which is something that I have always felt better for doing. It is kind of like talking with a best friend who won't criticize or judge me as they are there to listen with a loving ear. It sure does feel good to LET IT GO. Easy enough, right? Then, I heard it had to be 350 words or more. Ugh! Not being much of a talker, this felt overwhelming. The solution came to me... As long as it comes from my heart, I figure it will ALL turn out OK. Staying true to my commitment to share, I move forward with courage.
After thinking, crossing out, cutting, taping, rewriting, and thinking more, the blog begins! The new journey of sharing thoughts, study, feelings, art tips and experiences. It's a process, all with love, putting it all out there. Bit by bit, this journey has begun. How FUN!
Learning to be "in the moment" has been the foundation for expressing love through images of peace and serenity with my art. With this adjustment of focus into moments of mindfulness, the experience of feeling inner calm has become a bigger element of my time in this life. With this soothing sensation, the actions that follow are those of sharing stories with art to support a shine for others.
Stepping outside to breathe in the fresh crisp air, I hear the sweet sounds of nature while feeling the breeze on my skin and watching the water. Theses moments could be an early morning sunrise, a moment of curling toes in the warm sand, an evening sunset, or a sudden reminder as I flow through life.
While I am allowing myself to be with the beauty of nature and moments with it. I invite you to join the journey through this website and blog as we live and love deeper with peace and serenity.
