Something powerful is happening ...
I cannot articulate it yet, but little shoots of hope and excitement are sprouting within me and a quiet confidence - which is not my normal state - is settling around my shoulders. I am recognizing my being as a Cherished Creative perfectly describes who I am and how I live my life. I celebrate and cherish the richness of this life through acts of creativity. In turn, the act of creating opens up my heart and eyes to the deep truths of my life and all that is offered to me. I am feeling less frantic or anxious about creating as I find old fears that inspiration might dissipate, now are dissolving in the light of this truth: Creativity is who we are; Creativity patiently awaits her chance to flow through all who are willing to open and trust her power. Sounds a bit like trusting Love: we have to become vulnerable and risk wounds in order to grow and be transformed.
I want to start a new practice on Mondays of giving thanks to the gifts of Creativity as it manifests in my life. I would love for all to join me each week, sharing in the celebration of the gifts you created or received or recognized through your art and your life. Art resides in the details. Share us what you've discovered.
Here is my offering; some images from the past two weeks that I wish to celebrate and cherish:
