Today I was searching for peace and I always find that when I create.
I layered this piece up with my favorite things, lots of grungy texture with a soft side. Meaningful papers and super easy.
I’ve been feeling the heaviness of the world’s unrest and watching humans hurt humans. As if all of the things that we’ve been through the last 2 years aren’t enough, right?!
But I know that I have to find my own peace first, in the midst of everything, before I’m able to offer to help others find theirs.
And it takes work, physical action. I titled this piece Peace Awakening because awakening means to arise, to wake from sleep. It’s action.
Some days I feel like I’m sleepwalking, but when I take purposeful action to find peace, to wake to what I need, I can find it. Then I can help others find it too. I give to those who are also fighting for peace.
I’ll share more about it in video. I hope you enjoy this peaceful creation and that it inspires you to find your peace. YOU are loved!
P.S….Oh and I said in the video that I had found a couple of places to donate to Ukrainians, but I wasn’t able to fully confirm where the money goes. So here is an idea that my coach gave me in her weekly email.
Support Ukrainian Entrepreneurs
If you’re looking to support people in Ukraine, here’s a tip I learned that directly benefits entrepreneurs.
Use the Etsy search function to find sellers specifically in Ukraine who sell digital products. Think: knitting patterns, digital art downloads, planner templates, etc. Even if the person is in another country right now, they should still be able to access the funds, and there’s no shipping/making anything with digital downloads.
This is one way to ensure resources go directly to a struggling small business owner going through hell right now. (Plus, Etsy is waiving all Ukrainian seller fees in a show of support!)
