However today is going, I hope in this little moment, of this post popping into your day, it brings a smile to your face -or just the feeling of being seen. Life can be oh so hard. After sewing dozens and dozens of cards last week, I had this thought how all the cards were layered with so many colors and different movements. The stitching was not perfect and each card had little quirks all over. Yet, when I step back, I see how beautiful the finished cards are all together. Our lives can be seen like that too.
Life can be heavy, hard and also light and whimsical. We have awkward bends in the journey, yet this is OUR life to live.
In being real, it has already been a Monday over here. I recently read that “we” as a people group are in transition. One month last summer, 4 million people quit their jobs. Wow. I’m not the only one trying to figure out what’s next. It’s a messy place to be. I often turn to creating and creating with my family to ease the thought sorting and help me find a refreshed perspective.
What about you?
This past weekend our Jeremiah finally launched his YouTube channel. He’s been asking for a while, but it just now became the right time. Hearing him dream, laugh, and process what could make others laugh was so fun.
We don’t have to be perfect and have things all figured out to have beautiful lives. We just need to keep moving and I’d also say keep DREAMING. One step at a time.
The creative process can teach us powerful life lessons like how our point of view can impact how things turn out. Check out this short reel where I walk you through this thought.
So, wherever today is hitting you, get out and create. The process will be so good for your mind and heart!
