i stitch to heal. i stitch to learn more about myself.
I looked at my little blog that I started so very many years ago and noticed I had not posted since November. Wow! How did that much time zap by? It just does, that is life.
I made a promise to myself in this new year of 2018 and that was to LEARN. Learn all of the things that I thought were bigger then me. To put aside the self talk that never has served me and just show up and learn. I have wanted to teach, to put together online courses about things I love to create. I have let the fear of learning how to accomplish this take over. NO MORE!!!
I have a very smart and talented husband who believes in my talents so very much! With his help and my being brave and reaching out to a friend who is so talented with art and online courses, I just launched my first one. It was so wonderful! I love learning this stuff. I even surprised myself! I love organizing the lessons, styling the photos, chatting away about what I am creating. I even let go of not being young looking enough or pretty enough. The heck with all of that crap. I am doing it!!
I even launched with a class that to many might be odd. I do not even care. To me it is a sacred gift that I wanted to share, so I did and you know what, people showed up! Students are loving this online class. I am humbled and thrilled beyond. So excited to hear and see what they are creating. This is wonderful stuff.
Of course as I move forward it is easy to look back on my life and see how I traveled to where I am now. I have always been an artist my whole life since I was a little girl. I grew up and went to collage and became a graphic designer and illustrator. Cool! I still adore designing and illustrating. I had build up a routine of bad self talk - not enough self esteem until I was frozen. It feels great to not be frozen in fear. Sure I still suffer from anxieties but, man I have a handle on those (for the most part).
I am now creating my second online course and it will launch soon. I have plans for at least 20 courses already in list form.
My life is not as easy as some might think, I work really hard. I have some people who show up that are terribly mean to me. I live with knowing how lucky I am to be alive and I take it seriously. I want to show up and be positive to be a light. I no longer want to feel hurt by bullies and mean people. I just do not want to fear it anymore. So I am learning how not to. I learn more daily! I work on learning and growing and facing and slaying these fears every single day.
Be inspired by your life. Show up and do the stuff you feel calling you. Try it! Do not let others tell you who you are or what you are capable of. Just listen to YOU!!! This learning gig is the real stuff. I am so grateful that I am on this path. I wish this for all of you!!!
