I’m delighted to share my first Living. Learning. LIGHTLY. Painting. It has been a beautiful week. I am learning to surrender. To pleasure. Flow. Creativity. Love. Which means releasing my white-knuckled grip on life, putting down the highlighter, and allowing the armour to dissolve into me.
I am learning that my Controlling self, is beautiful. She is a protector. She is what has allowed my softer, more ethereal, feminine selves to flourish. Optimistic. Creative. Loving. Idealistic. Dreamer. Philosopher. Believer. She is what has allowed me to become a Designer, for her rational, focused demeanour grounds my creative spirit. I glimpse wisdom, the union of knowledge and compassion, because of her.
In Living Lightly I have created a beautiful world for myself, filled with love and challenge. So now my inner warrior need not be quite so vigilant. She can breathe. She needs a new role. So I dub her CEO of Design Detail, Routine and Big Picture strategy. Things my flightly, glitter obsessed creative self could never do.
I’d love you to share the LIVELIGHTLY Love. Simply link to ilivelightly.com xo
I am capturing lessons. Things I have learned, am learning, or re-learning. And in this way I anchor the messages within myself. I want to sink my fingers into Colour. Sparkle. So my idea is this. I am going to paint. Yes. With my hands. Paint. Brushes. I am so excited to push my boundaries. To try something new. To create something beautiful. It will be scrappy. Messy. Electric-hued. To embrace my inner artist. With an abundance of glitter, which is my idea of Luxurious Simplicity.
I would be delighted to Tweet you!
How have you been Living. Learning. LIGHTLY?
