Artist’s Way 5’s

number-2052086_1920.png

Quite an interesting chapter this week in the Artist’s Way.  Some of the tasks threw me off a bit.  Going back to my childhood was a little interesting!  Cameron gives a lot of lists of 5’s.

  • 5 Traits You Like in Yourself As a Child
  • 5 Childhood Accomplishments
  • 5 Childhood Foods
  • 5 People You Admire
  • 5 People You Wish You Had Met Who Are Dead

Try one out and share in the comments below.  And I’ll respond back with mine! Much love and many blessings. ❤

Loved the beginning

But sleeping by the ending

Quick end to our date!

 

I Made My First Pants!

img_1007.jpgIt’s kind of crazy how dreams are becoming reality.  Not too many years ago I wasn’t even dreaming.  I was advised to “have fun” — but I didn’t know what that meant.

Then I started thinking: “I might like to do that someday.”  And “Maybe I could try that.”

And now I’m doing things.  I talked with my friend years ago about learning how to sew from her — and now I’ve sewn two pillow cases and a pair of pants!  (Just need to manifest my own sewing machine!)  I kept thinking I should dance more, that it might be nice to take a dance class — now I’m going to teach one!  I’m journaling and going Live in the mornings; I’m blogging every night. My first Artist’s Way 12-week group officially starts tomorrow. Things that took FOREVER for me to get going are suddenly all locking into place.

I’m beginning to feel the abundance, I’m opening, I’m freeing up, and I’m so grateful.

Wishing the same for you each and every day!  Much love and many blessings. ❤

The Coach, the Dancer/Thespian, the Comedian, the Rocker, the Author, the Artist

Today I facilitated the Artist’s Way group. I was the coach.  Saturday I train for Zumba — I’ll be the dancer. In the car I am the rocker and scheme up karaoke night. Watching Dry Comedy I join the comedian; someday standing on my own stage.   Tonight I come to you as both the author and the artist.

Who are you today? What are the dreams you already live?  Which dreams are still waiting? 

Thank you for another day. Much love and many blessings. ❤

Art and Life

So . . . it looks like my blog content never posted yesterday.  And. . . I didn’t save my post outside of wordpress, so, it’s gone.  Forever.  HOWEVER, I did technically write a blog post. There was a title.  And someone even liked the post.  So, it counts!  Still blogging every day! Ha! (Side note — or not-so-side note — Mercury IS in retrograde right now.  I completely blame Mercury for this.)

But in summary of what never appeared yesterday, I’ve been facilitating an informal Artist’s Way group that officially starts regular meetings next week, and it has been marvelous.  Things have been moving and flowing for me amazingly (except for occasional technology snafus), and I even had a complete mis-communication come to a head at the beginning of the week that blossomed into a beautiful re-connection and amazing life lesson.

Because of Artist’s Way I’ve been writing every day.  I’ve been taking at least one Artist’s date every week (a creative date that feeds your inner child).  And this week I’ve decided to follow the universe’s nudge a bit and become a Zumba instructor.  (Possibly more on this later — and if you’re reading this on Facebook, watch for my Facebook Live video on it Wednesday!)

The Artist’s Way has re-entered my life and created miracles, and maybe if you’re reading this it is talking to you, too!

Thank you for sharing another beautiful day.  Much love and many blessings! ❤

Re-Awakening the Artist Within

THIS is What Morning Looks Like

Dear Source, Mother Gaia (Earth) . . .  and any and all Entities of Light — those for the good of all concerned — thank you for another day and for being a part of it.

Thanks to my work schedule opening up a bit — AND SOME SUN (Spring IS here, whether it looks like it or not) — I think I’m actually experiencing how a perfect morning can look!

This morning I woke up with Brian at 6am, took the dogs out (who pooped immediately — yay!), and made a breakfast smoothie.  The following 2-2.5 hours were spent on the following: pet care and feed, sitting on the floor and petting the fur babies, drinking straight hot water (Does anyone else do this, or am I crazy?), watching random inspirational videos on Facebook and youtube and crying my eyes out — in a very cleansing way, starting a load and accidentally Chrome-casting Abraham Hick’s “Everything is Always Working Out for Me” on the TV — and THEN getting super inspired to blast “Aum/Om chanting on the TV” and open all of the shutters to let in the GLORIOUS SUN! (Let’s raise this house’s vibration, y’all!).

Next I’ll probably add in some of the my other favorite activities/self-care choices/to dos for the day: multiple walks (with and without pets), a bath, meditation with candles, hanging out in the library (9 books on hold for me — yeep!), trying out some Akashic record/intuitive questioning, experimenting with ideas for my business card, reminding myself how to play “If I Had a Hammer” and “Seek Ye First” on the guitar for the nursing home this Friday, some correspondence, saging the house (It still feels sad!), Zumba Fitness Rush on the Xbox 360, reading my vision, random dancing around the house, making an on-line video, yoga, journaling, and planting some seeds indoors (weather is still unpredictable here in Chicagoland!).  In the past I’ve been asked questions like: “What do you do for play?” or “How do you fill your bucket?”  — And I couldn’t answer!  I’ve re-connected with my inner child and my inner joy! (WOOHOO!)

*Now that I’ve finished typing this out I see that is QUITE a bit to play with in one day. BUT — I now have a great “play”list to come back to! :-D*

And speaking of play. . .  the one area that I have been neglecting for some time is art play.  I may dabble in that today . . .  or this week.  Yes, I consider some of the things I already do a form or art — like journaling, blogging, and creating videos  — BUT, I think there’s something special to me about playing with color, could involve coloring, maybe designing, maybe collaging.  Whatever.  IT’S TIME TO PLAY!

Are you having a great morning?  What are some ways that you play?

Much love and many blessings. ❤
