All the News That's Fit to Print
I'm so excited. I've been asked to do something that I have dreamed of doing. It's funny how I have all of these little dreams in the back of my mind and it's so exciting when they come true. I'm not sure I can talk about it yet but know that life is good. :)
I'm going to a movie tonight at the Lifestream Center where I'll be facilitating the SoulCollage workshop in April. The movie is "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay and entrance is a $10 donation that goes to the Lifestream Center and the Hay Center. Isn't that cool?
My hope is that I will meet some really amazing folks who will become friends. I keep saying I want to meet my tribe (local...besides y'all hehe) but unless they just come and knock on the door it would be pretty difficult. I've become so accustomed to staying in over the years that I have to recondition myself to actually go out and have a good time! Tonight I'm going. I can't wait to see the movie.
I've been painting all morning. I don't know what's come over me. For a while I thought I may just forget about painting but then I started looking at the folk/naive art and it tugs at my heart, for some reason so I've been playing with painting in that style a bit.
YouTube is amazing for picking up techniques and just looking at art. I love it.
The dolls above were made over the weekend, I think. Or maybe Friday. Again, I was watching YouTube and got some ideas I had to try. :) The girl at this blog has a youtube video on her little gnome girls. Too cute!
Let's see....I guess that's about all the news from Roanoke today (mine anyway). Ohhhhh, I quit smoking again. Yes, that would mean that I started again since last time I wrote about quitting. lol but March 1 was the first day of the 100 day reality challenge for me so I decided to quit smoking. I feel good this time, like I did when I quit for a year and a half. The withdrawals were bad the first couple of days...couldn't sleep, felt sad and anxious and HUNGRY. I wasn't expecting all of that. Finally, I looked up the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and all of these were listed. That made me feel better and made it easier for me to deal with the feelings and go on. I haven't had one cigarette or even a drag in four days! Yay me!
I feel better already. I can breathe easier. I can't wait until my skin starts looking better. At least I stopped before I had been smoking for a whole year! I started in June of 2007. Close. :)
Ok, enough yammering. See you guys later. I love you. You are beautiful!
