I AM ENOUGH!!
In this moment do you feel enough, do have enough, do you want enough? For such an easy word it means so much.

I really loved my walk. It helped me open my mind and let go of a lot of stuff that has been dragging me down. I have started week two in the Artist's Way and I really like how its going so far. There is a lot of homework and writing but I never thought this would be easy. Its good for me too keeps me busy during the week. Well hope everyone had a great Monday. I leave you with a new affirmation I pick up "The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention."

I have also been enjoying being a kid. My daughters are great helpers with that!! My husband does it all the time just jumps in and plays with them like his a big kid too. I forget about fun and it is such a relief to just let it go. Let all the have tos and shoulds out the door and just enjoy yourself. Don't worry about all the grown up stuff and just have fun! I want to be a kid again!
Anyways here are the new creations!
Then next is an update of one that I couldn't decide what to call and really didn't know what else to do with but some how it pushed its way out with a lot of headaches and me almost throwing it away. We made up and everything is better! Its called "Shoot for a Star"
Its almost finished I really am amazed how much better I feel about it. I will be so relieved when I'm finished with this one.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. Hope you have a wonderful day and know how much you are loved. Its the hardest but most rewarding job in the world!

OK I'm back with a more up beat mood! Last Friday I was at the book store tiring to find some new reads! I'm lost without a book on my night stand. I flipped through tons of books. There was this one about lifting the vile on God and looking at the reasons why people believe in him. It was interesting but way too much scientific jargon. I love a good mystery or romance but nothing tickled my fancy so I wondered over to the self help books. Which I use go to first to see if there is any new books on co-dependence. I found this wonderful book called the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Its about finding a spiritual path to higher creativity. I think this is what I have been needing to deal with my spiritually lows. So far I love all the exercises in it! The morning pages are my favorite. I love how it says to treat your artist like a child and have fun with it. I take my artist too seriously. Like its this old retired man that only likes to smoke pipes and read old books! My child artist wants to dance, make a mess and sing out loud. I took a bubble bath last night and played with my kids bath toys while I bathed. It was so much fun! I need more fun in my life and if anything that is what this book has taught me so far.
If anyone has read this book then please let me know what you thought of it. I leave you with this for this week let your child artist play and have fun! Do something you would never do in your adult life ever! Like skip in the park or build a sandcastle on the beach or play in the bath like a kid! But you have to do it by yourself only you and your child artist no one else. Try it believe me you will what to make this a weekly thing!
Thanks for checking me out!
