My body began sending me signals that I was under severe stress. And I am proud of myself for listening to my body, acknowledging the need to relieve my stress, instead of my usual “suck it up, move on” mentality. I took the time to do yoga in the ams, despite being in a tiny hotel room:) and even did some meditation. I came across this youtuber Boho Beautiful and she had beautiful yoga sequence you can follow. I found this mantra in one of her meditation video and it really helped me through this week… Thank you Boho Beautiful…
Strength surrounds me
Love guides me
Peace fills me
Maybe this will help you too one day?
I went crazy with colors on this painting. Started with really sweet and pretty colors as I was feeling relieved and glad the long weekend is here. Then the painting took on a darker tone as the events of the week came to my mind. But I lightened things up and emerged happy and strong at the end. This is a good reminder to believe in my strength, my compassion and my ability to obtain peace.
To me, Art is truly the best form of therapy…
