Week 43: October 2014
Sitting at my new desk this week, I was itching to paint. Itching to break it in. Itching to see paint splatters marring it's pristine white top.
The problem was I didn't know what I wanted to paint.
I opened up my sketch book.
I found a page to use.
And I sat there.
Looking at it.
Not knowing where to start.
Not knowing what to paint.
I remembered meeting a beautiful soul at the markets last month, who asked me if my intuition spoke to me through my art. If what I painted was what I needed to hear at that moment.
Which obviously it does. I've just never formally asked.
So looking at this empty page, I decided to ask myself
"Dear Kirstin, self, tell me what do I need to hear right now?"
(Yes this was out loud. I am a goof!)
Then I decided not to think too hard about it. I just sketched. I just painted. I just played.
And when I finished, I couldn't figure out what she was telling me...
Something about the sky? Stars?
So unsure about the message I let her be for a while.
Today as I was preparing to scan her, to write this post, I knew exactly what she needed to hear.
Exactly what I needed to hear
I struggle at times; am overwhelmed others.
Struggle with doubt verses faith.
Struggle with believing in my self verses hearing my inner bitch.
Every one does.
But today, this is what I need to know. That if I listen to my heart. If I take a chance and trust myself. I will be on my path to my true north.
What about you?
