day one

my life has taken quite the turn in the past year.  what I once believed to be true and constant has forever changed.  I have suffered many losses and at the same time gained so much.

at the moment I find myself open to any and all possibilities and yet frozen in my tracks.  life circumstances were holding me back.  or so I thought.

for the past few years I have aligned myself with people and places that fed my soul and spirit.  I worked hard on my limiting beliefs and surrounding myself with angels who uplift me and love me for who I am.

and...all the while I began climbing the mountain home to myself.  with each step up the mountain I was given lessons to learn.  some of these lessons crushed my dreams.  some of these lessons gave me strength.  each lesson became a piece of my heart.  as my heart has grown and continues to grow I keep climbing up that mountain.  I continue to explore the world and learn more, grow more and in the not so distant future I hope to build - more.

loss can be accompanied by pain or loss can mean a new beginning or perhaps a celebration.  in my loss I began to doubt myself and who I had worked so hard on evolving.  I am hoping to find her.  I want her to step into her greatness.  I want her to embrace her aliveness.  I want her to celebrate life and I want to love her - again.

to new beginnings and beginning again!

I have accepted the Jeanne Bessette's challenge of creating 30 paintings in 30 days.  I will be sharing the paintings here on (hopefully) a daily basis.  enjoy!
