A more ‘traditional’ portrait with an alternative flair.

 

Let’s learn to love ourselves with all our heart and be our biggest fan, as we’re stuck with ourselves for life.

New Things | Fear

Jasper Aventurine Hamsa Necklace Close

Semiprecious stones, as well as stones in general, have become an increasing interest, especially when it comes to the idea of using them for handmade jewelry.

Despite enthusiasm and inspiration, the beads and stones collected over the past few months just lingered in piles around the house.  It’s so much easier and safer just to think about doing something than to actually try.  What if we fail?  What if we’re not as creative as we’d hoped?  What if it turns out we don’t like this new interest after all, and we’ve collected all these things for nothing?

It’s easy to fear the unknown and the untested, but we shouldn’t let our anxiety stall us from trying something new.  Or even trying something we’re experienced with.  Even for lifelong painters, the blank canvas can still be intimidating.

Let’s not let fear and anxiety keep us from diving into new interests.  We may find a new passion, a new hobby, or not.  But we won’t know until we push ourselves to try and experiment.  It may help keep anxieties to a minimum if we limit how many tools/supplies/etc we get in preparation for this new adventure.  Not only can it reduce financial loss if it doesn’t work out, but we’ll feel less pressure.

Cactus Flower

Cacti can be quite adorable when you’re not accidentally stepping on them, especially when they have little flowers budding!

Let’s remember that beauty can always be found, even if it’s hiding among needles.

Apologies for Roman Leaf being down for most of the day.  Sometimes things get prickly.    : )

Best wishes to all trying to make positive changes in their lives.  Let’s keep moving forward, even when we feel stuck.
