Take Up Knowing
In the last few weeks I have been working with a wonderful group of artists on Facebook. It's a secret group filled with love, support, motivation, and inspiration. Checking in daily with this group tends to put a fire in my heart that I need to get through the mundane days when I am separated from my paint.
One of the important lessons I am being reminded of is the necessity to re-write my story. When I first decided to leave counseling to pursue art, I was scared. I knew that I could no longer ignore the whispers of my Soul so with the support of my husband, I left counseling, took a part-time receptionist position and dove in.
But the fear stayed. I didn't matter that my art was now being featured in a local shop. It didn't matter that my art sold well there and at craft shows. There was still this fear surrounding making a living selling art. You see I had bought into the story of the starving artist, the tortured artist, that to be a real artist one can not aspire to monetary success. I'm learning now that's a crock of shit. And as a result " Take Up Knowing" was born.
It's time to re-write this story to one that feels like TRUTH. What false stories will you re-write in your life today?
