last night I was working through the latest lesson in Hello Soul Hello Business. I don't know if it was because I was extremely tired (hello 2am finish to the Australian Open tennis final!) but I couldn't think clearly and felt like the work I HAD done in the previous two weeks was not actually clear enough. And without that clarity, I was stuck at the next gate. So I posted to the closed Facebook group my concerns and then went to sleep. Twelve hours later, I woke and.....well, yes I needed some sleep. But I also found support and confirmation that I wasn't completely off track. Thankyou to my HSHB sistas for that reassurance!
Still, today, I kept looking at it all and something was missing. So I pulled out two canvasses and started creating art - art which stated the two things I needed to clarify. The two topics I need to remind myself of so that they remain at the forefront of my thinking as I go forward, so that I can remain true to them.
I can't show you the whole paintings because I don't want to give away the course content but these are some snippets that I can share and which I think tell you what I was feeling.
I can't describe how much better I feel having got this out. They are now hanging in my studio as reminders of what I can achieve and why I want to achieve it.
