Happy 2016 Back on Track

Happy New Year Ya’ll.   I have many exciting goals and plans for 2016.

My intentions are mostly to be healthier, peaceful and a bit more “out there”.

Healthier:  Eating better.

I started eating better last year but got off track during the holidays. I am still making my bone broth, my sauerkraut. and goat milk kefir on a weekly basis.  But cutting out the processed foods and sugar will help immensely.   I follow a functional doctor, Dr. Joshua Axe.  He is awesome because he works with gut issues. And I believe as he does that all disease comes from the gut.  For those of you that would like to know more click here.

Peaceful:

Being an artist full time has some great rewards but too much of anything creates imbalance.  My whole world last year was lived in a 5 mile radius, working at my home studio, teaching classes at my home studio, and Facebooking way too much.  Ugh!  I realized I was addicted to the comforts of my home and I am a control freak, (that’s not new news)  A little sad, I know.

Being in nature is always worth the time to get connected to beauty, inspirations and God.  I went for a New Years day hike with my lovely 6 years old grand daughter, Lola.  (She inspires me).  We hopped on rocks, we skipped stones on water and had a picnic in green grass.  I had a sense of calm and peace like it was the first time.  I am definitely doing more of that.

“Out There”

Since being an artist is so isolating I must make an effort to connect with folks and develop good nurturing relationships.  I just signed up with a group of lovely, energetic, encouraging ladies who happen to love Essential Oils.  I am a very excited about EO’s and a little obsessed right now because I got a diffuser  and it makes my place smell like heaven.  I have been using them for almost 3 years, off and on.  There is something to comforting and healing, honestly, that I kept telling my daughter and friends about them and how they help me and others.  My daughter, Shauna suggested I sell them because I am so passionate about them.  I am especially interested in working with my 7 yr. old grandson who has Cerebral Palsy.  So, you will be hearing a little about my adventure with Young Living Essential Oils from time to time.

I also intend to champion a one women show for my art work.   I have been longing  to do this for a few years now but I haven’t had the courage and I haven’t saved enough worthy art pieces to have a good collection of wall art, such as shadow box mosaics, 3-d mosaics, and sculpted single shadow boxes (that tell a story like the one below).   Well, this is the year!  So watch for that too.  I give you permission to hold me accountable on everything I list here.

Three Spirits of the One.

So here is to 2016, may it be a rewarding and successful one for you all as well.  Whatever your goals, never give up.  Even if it takes 2 or 10 years.  Just never give up!

Happy New Year!
