Getting My Footing

Getting My Footing

I’ve had a lot of changes in my life in the last 4 months and I’m approaching it as an adventure and a shake -up to my old way of thinking.  I’d like to shake up the way people perceive me too.  I’m working on a new lighter website to show my newer work and some older work.  Here is the kicker though I now depend on God to show me the way to do my daily living.  My thoughts are so much brighter and more about love.  It’s the trust that sets my footing.

The journey continues with your belief and faith in God and yourself. With all the external chatter out there of negativity, you have to have the strength and boldness to move forward.
If I didn’t have my faith in the Holy Spirit I would be defeated before I start. Life is always going to hand you lemons but together with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit you can have peace for whatever comes your way. Leave the bad behind and focus on the good.

Rethinking my life outside the box

It’s amazing to me how I could not see that I’ve been in a box of my own making.  There are  so many ways to trap myself and then wonder how did I do that.  It brings frustration and personal illness.  I was trying so hard to be like other art studio/galleries on the street (Main St gallery row Scottsdale).  For instance,  I thought i needed be open certain hours even though it meant a hardship to getting other things done like getting my marketing and office work done at home on my computer.  It was like clipping my wings to fly.  I’m not into pressure but I was doing the very thing that was hurting me in my body and spirit.  Now that I don’t have to do my art business like someone else but just what instinctively is right for me. I’ll still go down to my studio to paint and be open so I can visit with people when they are by and hopefully encourage others on their journey.

My daughter who is going through a divorce has been rethinking about her life.   Once she decided to do something about it, she has grown into her real authentic self.  She’s really blossoming and excited about her future.  She’s not boxed in and is in the process of flying.   Her blog http://www.Frankly40.blogsot.com.  Please go to it, she’s an amazing writer.

 

Where Do I go From Now To?

Mists

‘I live in the desert and I get cabin fever.  So I get stir crazy and start thinking too much.   That is when I get into trouble.  Does that happen to you?  I haven’t written for a while because   I  think, think, think  I need to be inspired.  The reality is if I just start to write or paint the words will flow or the colors start to magically appear.  Why do I waste the time thinking instead of doing?  I’m basing my thoughts on feelings and when I’m stir crazy my feelings are all wrong.  I question most everything.  Having faith helps me through this nagging and now I can start to settle down, relax and just go with the flow. I don’t have to know where do I go from now to?

I’ve really been blessed.  I’ve had such wonderful events that I didn’t pay for that came to me unexpectedly. Yesterday http://www.ArtsyShark.com featured my work and she asked me.  Phoenix Home and Garden published 2 of my paintings within this last year. Scottsdale’s cox communications government channel did a 30 minute segment on me and I was on the Hallmark channel in 2004.  I’m just amazed how when I’m depending on God even though I still put myself out there.  I’m meeting great people along the way. What a fantastic journey this is. Image
