Good Morning Lovelies! Thanks for sharing your Sunday adventures with me yesterday. Sunday seems to be a day where anything can happen in our lives. But this one was tranquil and enlightening. In fact, I began stewing over some notions and acknowledging the stirrings going on within. Mind if I share? There's been some changes in my life that are affecting me daily and transforming who I am ... here with you, at work, in relationships, and in my art.
Hopefully in the long run for the better.
I awoke yesterday and began dressing, realizing that I simply had nothing to wear. Really. My eyes scanned over the rows of pretty vintage items, jeans, sweaters, frilly frocks, etc.. All lovely. Some very endearing and special to me but none that fit my current body. Ugh.. Changes.
Fast changes. Changes outside of my control. Changes continuing despite (a very restrictive) diet, exercise, and supplements.
You see, over the past year I have been struggling with some perplexing changes in my body. And it wasn't until recently that I found a helpful health practitioner who is now searching to find out exactly what is going on. Last weekend I completed a battery of tests. Today I go to a Cardiologist for more testing. And waiting ... waiting for some sort of answer to these questions.
So I take one day at a time and try to see the silver lining in this situation. Fortunately through this fabulous community of bloggers I have met some women who are struggling with similar symptoms or have other health problems that create daily challenges. Its actually pretty inspiring and down right hopeful to see how these women not only discover beauty in the everyday but pursue a passionate creativity. Creating breath taking works of art with soul, spirit and hope..
Maybe its that hope which has been driving me back to my own studio lately. My body may be lacking but my creative spirit feels open, fresh, free and unhindered. In fact the visuals and artistry in my imagination are pretty amazing. I wish I could just insert a USB cable and download them for you now. But alas, like any great work, it takes time.
And maybe I will have more time now as I take steps to slow myself. Rest and reflect.
I wanted to share with you my story for now so you will understand if I need breaks or if I only post images (since one of my symptoms is cloudy thinking or brain fog which makes it difficult to process information or create coherent sentences).
Thank you for your love and support and continuing with me on this journey!
As of now, I have some great posts for this week and continue to be inspired by lovely imagery.
So.. shall we enter into change together? One step at a time....
And how about you? What are the changes in your life now?
