Tis the season, it’s usually just before Thanksgiving I began to fade.... I LOVE the
holiday season. I just prefer a very, very low key version. This year was
perfect, filled with love from family and friends......coffee/tea dates, delicious dinners and, in home wine tastings, dancing, art, love....love.... and more love from family, friends, and the universe.......just enough. I’ve beenpainting at home just allowing the brush to move over the canvas from my heart…..initially I began critiquing and judging my art in process, but after painting over one canvas four times I became well aware I needed to let go and chill out for a minute. I put the brushes down until, I was able to let go of the negative self-judgment……and then I continued to paint……I’m proud of my work.
My holiday celebrations may be a bit nontraditional, but their mine and I make sure to honor each one. I also stop all cardio and increase cheat food the last two weeks of December, this year it was three weeks. I always say it’s about balance and the holiday season is such a time to eat, drink and be merry. We all need a time to release and embrace changes of the seasons, these changes play a significant role on our emotional health and wellness; I count my blessings move and responded with awareness while remaining open to giving, receiving, and
I’m in a surge of creative energy, it feels good yet a bit overwhelming…….it’s times like this that I move a lill’ to fast or play
with myself, this
is myself awareness…….the painting has been a wonderful addition to
my time, very, very relaxing…one of the best decisions I made this year. I’m really enjoying my classes this semester; research is so interesting yet
unnecessarily complicated, exploring the 60’s is my other class. I’m really
digging that class……so much creativity going on within, I kinda feel like I’m in my own way….just a little, but enough to make me slow down, to breathe and step back and take another look, breathe it in again….that’s when balance is created……I need that right now.
I was locked out of my place for eight hours today.....not fun at all, it was raining and the only thing I had with me was my cell phone, nocharger, no books. I managed to get some errands done but knowing you can’t get in makes it seem a bit worse, the whole story is too long but the moral of thestory; ALWAYS write down where you put the spare key’s. I missed a friend’s baby baptism because of this that really is the worst part for me. I clearly had some bad karma in my energies, because today was a REALLY, type of day. I muttered everything from Om to the F-bomb….yeaUP, it was one of those day’s……..I missed my paint class as
well, my brushes and paint were locked up, this is what I mean by too much creative energy has me bouncing all over the place. My mornin’ started out great after my practice I headed off to train a client, as soon as I let go of the door knob I knew I was in trouble….I had to keep it movin’ though, my client was the priority. It was everything that happened after my client that sent the day spiraling downhill. I let it all go move pass me, until hour six…….I think that’s pretty good, haha. Not angry, just extremely frustrated with the whole situation. Anywhoo, today sure has me slowed down even a bit more, I’m still movin’ forward and gettin’ it done, but I’m aware of every moment without attachments……..allowing my expression of creativity to flow in the energies it flows with; peace, love, happiness, tears, sadness….expression with awareness…..I call it the GOOD STUFF!
