This piece just came flowing out of me… chasing away the guilt and ushering peace. It’s always amazing to me how creating art can do that for me. It also helped me focus on the beauty around me.

As I began this journey of purposeful living, of stepping outside my comfort zone to grow and learn more about myself and the world around me. I made a plan to try something new each week.
Well, this week got away from me, with the business of the business and a friend coming into town… I suddenly realized that I’d not done anything new this week.
What happened next took be by surprise.
I felt such guilt and really kind of beat up on myself. Partially because I’m a list or a rule follower in much of my life, if I don’t check the boxes I get that anxiety feeling and the other reason is I have this accountability with you now too.
But I had to stop and give myself a talk, just like I would with you or anyone important to me. I had to remind myself that this journey is not about some list that I have made up in my head,
but this is my heart journey and that should be a freeing thing not burdensome. I had to remind myself that there are lessons, growth and beauty in today. Each day is a blessing and to stop, look around, and find the beauty in the day to day, in filling orders, in creating blog posts in… whatever. And I did! my peace always, always comes from creating and every time I create I learn something new.
I pray that you find your beauty today. That you realize what a blessing today is and that creating a beautiful story starts from being grateful for the small things.
I hope you have a great week!
Be inspired, create and know that you are loved.
