Will you let yourself thrive?


I’m doing something a little different today – there’s no art story, but instead there’s some art wallpaper.

Today, I needed to remind myself that going for my wild n’ crazy dreams is not selfish or evil.

I find, as I move towards my Giant French Art Dream, that my inner struggle is about always allowing myself to thrive, to live fabulously and joyously.

I see it show up in my relationship with money, in my relationship with joy. Kate Courageous wrote this great piece about money, asking you to notice what the story is and to see how that same story is reflected in other areas of our lives.

The money stresses me out but it’s not really about the money.

It’s about shining. It’s about spreading my wings. It’s about unleashing my own powers but also about relishing and soaking up the awesome that is all around me, all the time.

It’s about not just surviving, but thriving.

So I made myself a little reminder to put on my computer screen to remind myself what my journey is really all about – it’s not about being greedy, or selfish. It’s about following my heart, finding out where my desire leads me, and creating Truth & Beauty on canvas and paper. It’s about finding out where my mission in life is going.

Right now, it whispers France with every beat of my paint-drenched heart.

And if I’m struggling with remembering to thrive and to let myself truly live, I figured I can’t be the only one. So I thought I’d share my little reminder with you.

I hope it helps.
