My mind and my hands cannot be still for very long. For weeks now I have been planning to make a cover for my fireplace mantle that had a painted elephant on it. Yesterday I began the project by drawing out the design.
My life has been so filled with stress for the past 12 years that I forgot how much I love to create art. I loose myself for hours only to awaken from my haze to see that on the desk before me is something drawn on a piece of paper. I have heard that this is how you know when you have touched on your life’s calling.
Trying to conform into other peoples ideas of what I “should” be doing in my life, made me lose site of that for a long time. It took walking away from my job, refusing to answer the phone and saying no to loved ones to bring me back to who I am.
I have discovered that when we empty our lives of all that does not matter and focus only on what does, than and only than, we will find ourselves.
