Day #67 …. I run into the most inspiring thoughts, concepts & life coaches on Instagram, what an amazing thought-community, I wish I could keep up with what everyone is producing and contributing, such beauty … One quote from a life coach was “Be realistic, expect miracles”. Which is too fabulous for words, makes me SO happy. We should all live this way. Why should only artists go for their dreams, live large, truly be deeply happy? I was in the designing of the ‘creating openings’ opposites-concept and then this sentence re-landed into my consciousness. Be Realistic / Expect Miracles. My life is living this opposite and the longer I sit in the discomfort that is this concept, I become more comfortable and happy with it … I do absolutely expect miracles. What do miracles look like, feel like? I know that being realistic has to do with lines that look like walls which might feel safe, and being realistic also has to do with staying small and in the corner and very afraid. Expecting miracles is having the wall of fear inside me and my heart open at the same time - that’s one design, heart overlapping the lines. Expecting miracles is is living with my heart and fear but having my heart win, choosing my heart … Expecting miracles is designing the lines INTO something other than lines … :) And most importantly, it’s all the same art - the colors of fear and lines is the same thing a open heart is made out of …. It’s just a different shape now …. The action steps of intentions create a new shape, create a new miracle …. xoox
My 100 Day Art Challenge: Inspired by the importance of living creatively and whole heartedly, not perfectly, on March 8 I started a 100 Day Art Challenge. My assignment is to work on something a minimum of one hour a day and post the process, in a transparent way. Decide at a later point what of the art to use in my memoir, and also what to develop more. To design into my Blog topics, a Book of Opposites icons and whatever else comes up, inspiration wise.
