yes, it’s monday morning and here’s what i want to say. i’m oh so grateful. my heart is happy. it’s been 3 and a half years (!) since i lost my teaching position and that was a messy and difficult transition. but here i am now looking out my window on monday morning trying to choose which of the projects i am absolutely passionate about to focus on today.
i didn’t have to get up and rush out of the house into traffic with a gazillion responsibilities and anxieties marching around in my brain. no, i’m here at my desk. i don’t have to go anywhere today. my projects and my studio await…. and i am filled with joy.
i do not take this lightly or take it for granted. i realize every. single. day. how fortunate i am. i realize that things will not always be just this way but, for now, in this moment, i appreciate my life and everything in it that has led to this moment....
another reason i’m feeling particularly grateful today is that my creativity unleashed workshop has been completed and (after a very shaky start) totally exceeded my expectations.... details are here. thank you for stopping by!!
