As Dedicated as we are to our practice, there will always be those days that feel incredibly overwhelming. A series of unfortunate events. A combination of annoying incidents. Sleepless nights. The important thing to remember is, although it may feel as though everything is crumbling in that moment. It is only temporary. Take a moment to breathe. Take out your pen, pencil, brush or whatever you want to use to create. Doodle, paint, cry, scream, laugh... Feel whatever needs to be felt. It will be ok. Take comfort in the fact that nothing lasts forever, whether or not it is good or bad. Take Pride in the fact that you created something today (even if it is just a circle, it's your circle) Look at yourself in the mirror and celebrate both the success and failures of the day, because we learn everything from experiences in life... and life inspires art.
