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 9/11/2016:
Still working my way through #LoveWarrior, slowly and deliberately, soaking up every morsel of wisdom that @glennondoylemelton has to offer because it's that good.
One nugget in particular: Upon finding out that she -- an alcoholic who had hit rock bottom -- was going to be a mother, she says she felt suddenly like she'd been offered an invitation to a better life. Even though it was a painful moment -- one where she had to realize her coping mechanisms weren't going to work anymore and to sink into the fear of the unknown path that laid before her -- she also saw it as a divine provocation to finally claim her true identity.
That word, invitation, has stuck with me ever since I read it on the page.
The truth is, we don't have to find ourselves at a serious impasse to know what that feels like. It feels like a source deep within us beckoning us forward, compelling us to act even when our logical mind is tied up with things like fear and confusion and uncertainty.
The invitation says: Pick up the paintbrush. Book the travel. Tell the truth. Feel the love. Take the chance. Make the call. Raise your hand. The invitations are everywhere, and if we listen closely enough, they will lead us to what we need to learn.
