Yay!!! Today is finally here. My first Solo Exhibition "A Poor Girl's Flower" is tonight. Thank you so much for all of your support and helping me get here. It's because of your loyalty that I'm able to pursue my dreams. No matter how rough or hard it's been, I can always look to you for some words or encouragement. You all rock, and I'm so thrilled to be amongst you. I found my flower in life and I couldn't be happier. I hope I will see you later. . . . This Collection goes live at 6pm, stay tuned.... . . #flowersuponflowers #lookatalltheflowers #dsfloral #dslooking #dscolor #flowersbringjoy #flowersmakemesmile #afloweradaykeepsthedoctoraway #alltheprettyflowers #brightandcheery #wakeupmyfriends
I'm letting go right now. Letting go of dreams, the way things could have been. I'm letting the sting of letting go- sting. I'm letting the ache rumble around under my rib cage. * Letting go comes with tears, forgiveness, release. And so today, we wipe counters, warm nuggets, tie shoes with our wounds wide open and undone. If we don't release the pain, we end up yelling at our kids for issues unrelated to their actions. Lets not let pain that belongs to us become a burden our kids have to carry. * Loving our kids means working through the stuff we would rather run from. Courage is facing who we really are with a God who really is. And when all that needs letting go is gone, God will fill the empty space in our souls with love. Then, we can begin again. ❤️#stayawaketolove
Colors of the day. Literally, figuratively, imaginatively, all the ways... 💎 I'm working away on the next collection of originals which I'm hoping to release in March! // this is rather off-topic, but for those of you who are into personality tests, what does it mean when you take a test 5 different times over the course of several months and come up with 5 different answers??? 😳🤓 (NERD ALERT: It's the enneagram test that is specifically giving me a wide variety of results... which might be telling in and of itself? 1, 2, 3, 4, 9... But I'm nearly 💯 certain that I'm an INFP) I don't put too much weight in it - I think I know myself pretty well. I've never been a good test taker. 😂
