A time of reflection, reward, and commitment

My life experience with this time of year, December, the ending of one year and the beginning of the next, has been less than pleasant; however, that is not true of this year, 2021. Amazingly enough, last year, I made a personal commitment to myself to explore and discover joy in my life. I succeeded in discovering the wonder and complexity of joy, by establishing a process for self-honesty, end of story.
 
As a part of that process, I came to the realization that I need to change my thinking. That process was and is complicated and I do intend to share more of the process throughout 2022, but right now, I would simply like to share one simple thing. I chose to give myself, minimally, the same respect I would give a stranger. With that I chose to love myself as a human being and to treat myself with kindness and compassion.
 
For accountability, I committed to a daily affirmation, to positivity, and motivation that I would share publicly. I kept that commitment through a daily post to Instagram comprised of some original art, some art journal pages, and a doodle or two.

I am rewarded by the opportunity to continue to pursue what I am passionate about, living life, making art, and foremost, helping others. I look forward to sharing more art, more art journal pages, more doodles, and events all from a center of positive affirmations where fears are faced from the mindset of possibility and opportunity.
 
I am committed to sharing as much of me as I need, naturally, to continue my own healing, but I am passionately committed to coaching others through the process.
My art is a reflection of my story, layers, texture, pain and sorrow, laughter, and now joy. Originals, prints, and special orders are available through my website or contact me directly. I would love to hear from you.
 
Remember, we talk to ourselves the way we talk to a canvas. Therefore, be loving, be kind, and be compassionate to yourself. It will change your life.
 
Love & hugs,
Kat
