☆ Believe [Friday Art]

Week 43: October 2014

Sitting at my new desk this week, I was itching to paint. Itching to break it in. Itching to see paint splatters marring it's pristine white top.

The problem was I didn't know what I wanted to paint.

I opened up my sketch book.

I found a page to use. 

And I sat there.

Looking at it.

Not knowing where to start.

Not knowing what to paint.

I remembered meeting a beautiful soul at the markets last month, who asked me if my intuition spoke to me through my art. If what I painted was what I needed to hear at that moment. 

Which obviously it does. I've just never formally asked.

So looking at this empty page, I decided to ask myself

"Dear Kirstin, self, tell me what do I need to hear right now?" 

(Yes this was out loud. I am a goof!)

Then I decided not to think too hard about it. I just sketched. I just painted. I just played.

And when I finished, I couldn't figure out what she was telling me...

Something about the sky? Stars? 

So unsure about the message I let her be for a while.

Today as I was preparing to scan her, to write this post, I knew exactly what she needed to hear. 

Exactly what I needed to hear

I struggle at times; am overwhelmed others.

Struggle with doubt verses faith.

Struggle with believing in my self verses hearing my inner bitch.

Every one does.

But today, this is what I need to know. That if I listen to my heart. If I take a chance and trust myself. I will be on my path to my true north.

What about you?
