Blossoms for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  These are my favorite weeds. I do not know their name. They're feathery and delicate and I refuse to boot them from my flower beds until they are done blooming because they make me happy. The littlest details make up a life. The tiniest purple blossoms en masse make a carpet. The whispered intentions of a people can make a roar. . .  #taleswithfriends #mywisdomlessons #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments

IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER OUR CREATIVE SELVES CHALLENGE ! The Month of June! .  I went back to research how it was that I was brave enough to try the 100 day challenge I'm currently doing. And remembered the first Our Creative September creativity challenge which birthed the #ourcreativeselves hashtag in order for our group to stay connected. .  We went on to do at least one more challenge in May of last year and I figured I'm already committed to another 50 plus days of arting so why don't you join me? I'll cheer you on, as will the other participants, when you use the #ourcreativejune hashtag on your posts. .  Everyday creativity is a certain antidote to anxiety. Flow and fear can not happen simultaneously. And I could use the company of my #ourcreativeselves group again. .  Whaddya Say? You In? . .  #arthealsthesoul #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #innerartist #createeveryday #creativemamas  #creativemama #charcoal #pencil #innerartist #pastels #asketchaday #taleswithfriends #100daysofshalagh  #creativepractice #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bepresent #collectivelycreate  #arthealsthesoul #creativechallenge #createdaily
Awe-inspiring for #manifestingthroughmay with @Ofearthandstars . .  Dreams of the final circus performances last April. The horses and their trick riders were spectacular.  Add fairy wings and high heels and a superstar is made! .  My day to day existence seems so desperate and confined comparitively. Unglamorous and fearfilled. I wonder how do I fill my days with circus glamour and bravado ? Keep creating and daring and communicating. Keep searching for the quintessential me in what I do. And sharing it with you. .  #taleswithfriends #selfleadership #leadership  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments
🐝Day 47  of the #100dayproject🐝 .  I'm doing a sketch a day on a 4x6 piece of paper. . .  A little bee I found in the backyard clover. Fiona got to touch the fuzzy part, saw the stinger, and sang her little bug parts recognition song. I chose to memorialize him with a clover flower. . ○The use of simple household objects as my sketching subjects is my reminder of the simplicity of life. A sketch a day is proving that I can create for 100 consequetive days.

Nourishment for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars . .  Listening to our bodies and appetites. Salmon and "eat your rainbow" salad with butter lettuce, blueberries, avocado, roasted butternut squash, and pickled onions. The pink food coloring made me happy! .  Because satisfaction is about both visual appeal and tastiness. #lunchtime #eatyourainbow #taleswithfriends

Walking for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars . .  We often visit our local State Park for the playgrounds and paths. We talk to the owls, collect nature bits, and are reminded that there's wonder in our world despite what we're often offered up. .  We are large and small al at once. We belong and yet are sometimes estranged. We are home and on a journey simultaneously. .  #taleswithfriends #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred #nothingisordinary #thehappynow #liveunscripted #pursuepretty #searchwandercollect #seekthesimplicity #thatsdarling #theslowdowncollective  #becomingwild
🦅Day 45 of the #100dayproject🦅 and #feather for #manifestingthroughmay with India @Ofearthandstars .  I'm doing a sketch a day on a 4x6 piece of paper (depending). .  This was a little gift feather from Elizabeth  @nourishingwork ,a connection we made on IG three years ago. Her card spoke of her father's battle with cancer. And her new baby. We haven't maintained contact yet I feel I could get in touch with her and we'll still feel the closeness of the snail mail connection. Thinking of the gift of feathers and faraway friends. . .  My feather shaft is a bit wigglier than the real one. . ○The use of simple household objects as my sketching subjects is my reminder of the simplicity of life. A sketch a day is proving that I can create for 100 consequetive days.

When we get a chance to hand over our fears, our worries, our shadowy shames to one another, we feel lighter. We are betterfor this exchange. .  Today, my blog post is titled Shadowy Places. My friend Heather @thriveinmidlife helped me by sharing her story of how she got over her overdrinking. And she remarked that others had shared their relief privately with her and that lets her know it's a powerful good thing to share our stories, revealing our shadowy places. I'm doing the same. Pay it forward. .  #everythingissacred #alifeofintention #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #emotionalmaturity #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #community #communication #mushrooms
🐩Day 43 of the #100dayproject🐩 .  I'm doing a sketch a day on a 4x6 piece of paper (depending). .  A little pink plastic pitcher.

Music for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars . .  To have a child who is this gifted is such a ridiculous blessing. Just sitting here listening to this piece as I edited it to get just the right minute, I felt moved, got the tingles, and felt a little teary.  He cut a demo this past weekend so he'll have something recorded to hand people! . .  #taleswithfriends #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #piano #bach #bepresent #collectivelycreate  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #mindfulness #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments #easmonspencerpeach

Shadows for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars .  It is the shadows that make the piece come alive. The shadows that give my sketches the depth of realism. .  So it is with people. Their shadows and their shames make them more human. As humans, we will never be perfect. Yet we keep torturing ourselves with uninteresting goals of perfection. I'm bored by that. . .  #taleswithfriends #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #mywisdomlessons #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #growthmindset #movingforward #alifeofintention #ofquietmoments

Ripples for #manifestingthroughmay with @ofearthandstars .  I pause, nay freeze, at that next step. The one that would send wonderful ripples through a sea of women saying "Heck Yeah! Me too!". .  I pause because I am uncertain of my work's worth. .  Uncertain I can stop the train once it starts. .  Probaby because I respect my fear more than I respect my value to the world. .  I can not see how it turns out. Who'd want to work that hard and fail due to lack of interest. .  So my ripples stay silent. . .  #taleswithfriends #writersofig #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred #nothingisordinary #thehappynow #liveunscripted #pursuepretty #searchwandercollect #seekthesimplicity #thatsdarling
