This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 8/29/2016:
Today I really thought I'd be frantic. We're closing in on just a few days until the #MVcoloryoursoul launch and while all the major things have been completed, I'm still buttoning up all the tiny loose ends I have flying around. I thought I'd feel anxious, like I was in a race against the clock to get it all done. So today when instead I found myself eerily calm, relaxed, almost like any other Monday, I actually had the thought to myself: "Am I missing something?"
Feeling so collected actually felt wrong.
And then I thought to myself, wait, this is actually what joyful making feels like. And I'm ALLOWED to enjoy it.
I think we're programmed to believe that all good things have to feel hard. All mountains worth climbing are supposed to be arduous. But I just don't think that's true. Sometimes it really can be fun and joyful and CALM, and that still means it's valuable.
Don't fight the good feelings. You're ALLOWED to enjoy what you're doing. In fact... I'd say that it's strongly encouraged.
