Honoring My Creativity!

This is a page from a daily affirmation journal that I kept. I love this page because it reminds me of what it is that my hands do! I am amazed at the things that these old hands have come to do and love. I am grateful that I have rediscovered what it is that I always knew in my heart that I wanted to do. The one thing that I realize is that it is never to late to connect with yourself. We sometimes get lost in the everyday shuffle of life....we often times as women become, someones wife, someones mother...and somehow lose sight of who we are, what are dreams were and become everything to everyone else. Not that it is a bad gig...cause, I did love being a surburban house wife, and the baseball, dancing mom!! But when those little birds flew this nest...WOW!! what a shock to see that I had no idea what it was that I was suppose to do!! My doctor suggested a pet..something to "mother"..which I gladly did do! But, now, years later...I realize that my doctor probably should of suggested a class, a tribe, a retreat...It certainly would of saved me a lot of time!! I do know that everything comes together in the proper time and space, and that I am sure that the things I went thru just served to make me into the person that I am today! But, let me say this, if you are reading this and your nest is just starting, or starting to empty out...start a journal, start to rediscover yourself, take a class that you have always wanted to take, RECAPTURE your dream. Your whole family will thank you for it!! But most of all...your heart will thank you!
Artfully Yours,

Patti, I love your post it is so true. I have one special daughter, the love of my life, and she is just about to fly the nest. I wonder to myself whatever will I do without her in my life every day. But thank god I have found my creative soul and I also have a wonderful husband to fill that void.
