I'm climbing back in the blogging saddle with no excuses for my absence, and with no expectations for the future (that feels like freedom to me, and freedom feels good!). This last year was a challenge - hell, the last several have been...but along with that has come some beautiful awareness and big growth. This year just feels different.
Painting is something that I always think about, but up until recently rarely do - even though it calls to me like an ache from the deepest place.
As last year was coming to a close... I knew that 2014 was going to be a year full of painting and big shifts. I can still feel that energy just as strongly as I was feeling it then. Painting began to show up all around me. I saw a friend's post on facebook about entering to win a spot in 21 Secrets Live with Connie Hozvicka. The spot was being given away by one of Connie's co hosts Hali Karla and I went without thinking or hesitating and responded to the giveaway on her blog from the car in front of the bank. I left my request there, sent it off with a wish and shortly afterward I got notified that I was given the spot! I also hopped onto a free painting spreecast with Connie about her upcoming course Painting the Feminine and during it, she decided to give a spot away..and again I was given the spot! Each time I nodded deeper and deeper in the direction of Spirit. O h y e s...I'm getting the message here. Time to get your ass in gear and paint, listen to the calling of your soul. Along with all of that goodness my dear friend gifted me a spot in Alena Hennessy's A Year of Painting. Are you hearing the message I was getting too? It's pretty loud, right? Oh and there was a second message too....
Abundance is all around. Trust that.
So my year started off with a bang and a paint brush. I have been determined to paint, to participate, to do it! and not let money or any other obstacles get in my way. Luckily I had a stash of art supplies to support me without having to spend much money at all. It's been really good and challenging, and I like a good challenge. It's been amazing and I'm so grateful. Beyond words. I've been painting my way home.
