I need to make some changes in my life, and find myself challenged by my limiting beliefs. I have an expectation that I should be happier, which leads me back to the belief that I am not doing enough. Eventually I would like to be able to just accept what is here for me now (and if I am unable to do so, to stop thinking I’m not enough because of those limitations- what a fucking mind circus!)

I was listening to Tara Brach speak about dropping the doing: about going from human doings to human beings.
This is really speaks to me, as I have recently found myself cut off from connection, cut off from really feeling, mostly because I am so distracted by all my doing. Part of me wants to hang on to doing and being cut off, because it feels safer- it’s what I know.
I want more slowness, more time to savour what is here. It’s all disappearing so quickly.
Seeking joy! Here are some of the ways: Colour! Sun! Improv! Hugs! And especially Trying new things!

Painted some more shoes!
Back and forth between “trying to make a good painting” and enjoying myself. I give up on the trying.

I have recently become super aware of how my words affect others, and made a conscious choice, in a moment, to really make the effort to speak from an open heart. It makes such a difference.

The universe is really testing me today: relationship stuff and computer stuff are making me want to cry and grieve and yet, I can also see how it is up to me to choose which way to view it all.

I have noticed that the amount of time I have devoted to creating art has decreased in the last few months. I have also lacked a certain spark and joy, and I think it is possible these two things are related. Not sure which is the chicken or the egg, though. In any case, it’s time to get back on the colour train.

I am making my choices and creating my life, so when I start believing I am not doing/being enough, I am choosing to stay stuck.
I notice that I keep making sets of rules to follow to feel better about myself, but then when I don’t follow them, guess what happens?
I am work in progress. Ultimately, I just want to stop trying to meet expectations that aren’t even mine.
I guess I will keep following what feels good to me. What else is there?
I get into a cycle of shame when I try to beat myself out of sad and into gratitude. Constantly need to relearn that each feeling has its place, and needs to be felt. It can’t be beaten out of me with gratitude.
Painting with lots of colour helps me to keep going. The not-good-enough story is working hard to perpetuate itself today. I need to get under the sun.
I want you to have this painting. Make me an offer. ❤️
