Yesterday I drew this heart... I saw a painting so clearly in my mind and I wanted to practice drawing one before painting it. Totally Googled it. 😃
And then...today Fred and I went out for a little trip to Kensington Market to pick me up some art supplies which was like the best day ever!! I got some really amazing stuff....including some fluid Acrylics, India Ink and Origami paper!!! Might try and make me a little crane tonight....
And now...he's making Mac and cheese. Perfection. Very grateful right now.
I have been experiencing some depression and anxiety over the last little while, and I had a realization that I was being so hard on myself, making myself believe i wasn't doing enough, trying hard enough, and so each day I'd wake up not wanting to get out of bed because of the stress and pressure I was putting on myself for what I needed to do that day. Been trying a few different techniques...today I did some yoga and body awareness stuff, and danced a bunch. Been cooking and spending some time tidying up and organizing stuff which has helped me get more grounded. Really trying to focus on enjoying life.. doing what makes me feel good...instead of all the things I tell myself I have to do. I spent a day with my dad recently which made me really miss my mom...after a lot of tears I had a newfound realization that I really need to just enjoy each moment and stop putting so much pressure on myself. It's been something I've been working on, an old habit that is so easy to fall back into.
So, if anyone else is going through something similar I feel for you and send you lots of love. You are enough, no matter what you do or what haven't done. 😘
Lots of love..xxx
