☆ Life book [week 19]

Life Book - Week 19.

Boy am I behind! But this weeks lesson was an exercise in taking a moment to check in with my self, with my body, with my head.

To see what I was feeling in that. exact. moment.

And it was tough.

Because like many of us, I will often lie to myself about how I am doing.

When some one asks you how you are - do you reply 'fine', or 'good'?

How often would that be true?

Imagine if you said "well actually my husband snored all last night so I am tired and cranky, and then I came down stairs and stubbed my toe on a my little pony, that I had asked to be put away 3 times, before my morning caffeine fix, so I not only am I cranky, I am pissed as well."


Anyway, I spent some time reflecting on myself, and at that moment, I felt unravelled, but instead of feeling anxious or stress, I realised that it was ok. I was ok.

So out of this feeling came this painting. 'I am unravelled and it's ok'

[as a side note, I have a friend who's a psychoanalyst who swears fine actually means fucked up, insecure, neurotic and/or emotional. Yep I think that sums up my use of the word fine]

Anyway, I felt such peace after finishing this painting.
