Give yourself time to heal…

It has been an emotional 24 hours and an emotionally exhausting few months. I have never cared this much about politics. But this one is different. It cuts deep into my core. I am sad, confused, bewildered, worried. And on top of all that, Nov 9th was my birthday. But something wonderful happen throughout the day. I received many birthday wishes from friends and families. People who cared to drop a note. To say hello. My team at work surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I got to enjoy the most delicious chocolate cake with my family. Accompanied by a beautiful glass of wine. Took some funny snapchat pics with my daughter….I was reminded of all the good around me. All the love. The blessings. And all that we can do. That we have the power to stay true to our values. no one can change us, if we don’t let them. So, I am thankful and hopeful. That said, I know I will need time to heal from all this negativity and emotional roller coaster. Tonight, I give myself this piece of art, to acknowledge my feelings and to remind myself to give myself time to heal. I hope you will too. The next piece I make will be a happier one… ❤️
