Appreciating the beauty in the pause. It's been a challenging week for me personally so I'm thankful to find moments of simple joys like this in my studio. I'm also pausing to celebrate a heartwarming and inspiring graduation ceremony yesterday with my Shining Stars followed by a productive and empowering kickoff call with a new client. My self-care practices become even more important during tough or busy times so that I can stay grounded and present for myself, my loved ones, and the awesome people I serve. How do you stay grounded when life throws you curve balls?
With each ending comes a new beginning. I'm complete with my big, wild painting that I started in January and I'm ready to face the blank canvas again. . . Another ending going on this month to make way for new beginnings... . . I'm wrapping up the final round of my Mentorship Program that I've run 6 times since 2012. It's been amazing to see what our Cohorts and Stars have accomplished over the years and I'm excited about what's next for them. My community and my business have evolved quite a bit since the program's inception so I'm excited to open up more space to create the next evolution and to work with more individual VIP clients. In fact, 2 new awesome clients signed on this month. Yay! . . When you close one door another opens. What in your life or biz needs to come to completion so that you can create space for a new beginning?
Worked on my larger than life painting during our final Shining Star White Space. Have loved getting to carve out virtual sacred time with these inspiring entrepreneurs to honor our whole selves, our health, our creative process, our spiritual side, our visions, and more. When we come from a grounded "being" place we can be so much more effective with all of the "doing."
Morning meditation doodle with my furry valentine. I love it when Kaya shares the cushion with me. Since the beginning of the year I've been participating in @insight timer's 365 Days Together challenge and doing daily doodles of each sit in @lisa_deyoung's 2017 Daily Musings Journal. A great combo for helping me stay committed to my practice. #meditation #doodle #dailymusingsjournal
Can you spot the 💩⛈?! 😉 Thank goodness for the therapeutic nature of expressive arts and intuitive painting. BTW some of the poo transformed into Hershey's kisses cuz hey anything is possible when my inner muse is in charge. #expressivearts #intuitivepainting #studiodog
