I took the long road to get this finished piece. Sometimes it happens that way.
The layers on this are so yummy…. and it’s not what I had planned but I’m so thankful for the journey this took.
I also didn’t follow my own advice when I started and that was part of my problem. As I redid and redid each layer, the light bulb came on and I let go of what I did and covered it up. It was smooth sailing after that.
The inspiration came from Edith Eger’s book “The Gift” and the chapter that I needed to read right now. I will go back to it again and again.
The title of the chapter is “No one rejects you, but you”! Wow!
This last week, I was having a bout of self-doubt and old tapes came up to try to confirm my feelings.
This is a regular struggle for me…..I’ve done lots of work (and therapy) to overcome and quiet those yucky tapes. But sometimes things pop up at the most unexpected times.
Edith says in this chapter that I was reading “we get to choose how we talk to ourselves”….. when I read that…. things got real quiet around me and I knew what I needed to do.
I share all about it in the video because I know that you could probably use a little reminder that YOU are born beautiful, joyful, and uniquely you!
