Okay, I have to admit that I am somewhat nervous with this new site! I have been able to make posts for days now, but just haven’t been able to make myself do it! I am so thrilled with this new website- it fits me and feels right. But it is a change. I am wondering if all my people will find me here (I’m over here now, friends! Come over!) I imagine it will take a few posts before this feels like my new home. I am still unpacking my bags and settling in.
So, it is excitement mixed with a little fear. This happens a lot.
Feel the fear and do it anyway.
I felt a boatload of fear when I was making the painting above. That painting went through this horrific ugly phase that made me want to run away from it and never finish it. It was on such a huge canvas that the ugly phase took so long to get through to the other side. I knew this painting was teaching me what I am ready to learn- to persevere through fear, to trust, to believe in something greater then myself.
On the first Monday of this year, I started a new project that is changing me in more ways than I ever thought possible. I am doing a gratitude project where I make 100 paintings for 100 people who have touched my life. I am sharing my stories on the page A Hundred Thank-yous. So essentially, I have two blogs now, both on the same site. (I just got scared again!)
Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
