    I intend to dig deep and really do some soul searching during this time away Away from work the city the noise the luxuries I need this time to plan some dreams out too I ve always felt very lucky to be where I am but I can tell you it has been hard Emotionally hard You know that saying Don t judge someone until you ve walked a mile in their shoes Someone might look happy content at peace not a worry in the world but it might not be their truth what you see might not be their true face It doesn t mean they are lying to you or being dishonest it could be for reasons of self protection it could be to protect you from the lies they ve been telling themselves Wearing your true face is near impossible when you are dealing with inner turmoil trauma anxiety or ill health whatever your problem may be It is pretty damned exhausting plastering on a brave face acting like you are fully functional in full robot mode when you just want to hide You don t want to share your problems with the world you don t want people to worry you don t want people judging you labeling you when you have already labeled yourself you don t want to appear weak you don t want people saying you ll get over it that s a silly thing to think everything will be alright because whilst you might be alright eventually if you have suffered some hardship whether it be financial emotional or spiritual or all of the above things weren t all right and it will take time to truly feel alright And in that alrightness not a word I know will be acceptance a shift in thinking a shift in how you look at yourself That s where you might be now admitting it to yourself for the first time in too many years trying to fix yourself fix your life fix your way of thinking Saying to yourself that you aren t Broken you have just gone through some hard stuff that you never could talk to anyone about because you thought it was a non issue so you buried it because you never had anyone back then so why would anyone be there for you now It s damned hard to share it with your family and friends if you are anything like me But I ve had breakthroughs the past few weeks I m letting my family and friends in the ones I feel I can talk to about anything the ones who really know me who can see my happy face but know there is sadness underneath but can just be there anyway for the first time I m not pushing down the pain I am scared I worry that I can t get past things and I cry when I need to but you know what That s how

    Why Well it s not just our daughter that has benefited from this story I have as well The past 6 years or so have been a rollercoaster for many reasons there were lots of plunging headlong into the abyss trials as well as a few accelerations to the top I can happily share that I feel that life has been on the up for quite some time No more uncertainty no more wondering when the hell things are going to go from bad to worse or when things are going to get better 2010 brought tremendous changes and plunges into the great unknown and the abyss as well Some of the events which are perhaps too personal to share here just yet led me to search explore and discover what my passions in life are Things that I longed to be longed to do became a part of daily life The start of 2011 saw my inner light bulb spark and the questions in my head have been endless ever since What creative endeavour or interest can I delve into or return to What do I like doing What do I love What do I want to become What can I share with others How do I want to spend my time Really what on earth are my goals And so my art hibernation ended as I began a raft of creative online classes to awaken my artistic spirit and numerous fervent searches online for inspiration and connection with like minded souls Where was I Oh that s right Happiness is Sharing I am reminded of the lesson in this book every single day When I m having a sucky down in the dumps day and procrastinating like crazy about art I share this with my bestie and she magically has this cheerleader power to get me out of that rut by reminding me about my good points Yes smarty pants sniggering in the corner I DO have good points Proof 1 that Happiness is Sharing When I find awesome cool links to stuff I love ok art blog and shop links and I know my friends or online community folk will like I share Proof 2 that Happiness is Sharing When I see The Big Issue seller near my office singing a tune or simply trying to get passersby attention I think wow his happiness his effort his spirit is infectious so I buy a copy of the magazine giving more than the cover price and the gratitude and smile I get in return is Proof 3 that Happiness is Sharing I don t think I need to convince anyone who may come across this blog post what my message is What I m trying to say and I must quote from one of my favourite authors of all time JK Rowling that Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times when one only remembers to turn on the light I turned on the light and

    m feeling in my body right now Personal growth is painful Really painful On the brink of tears madness and losing my usual composed vibe I can for the most part be unshakeable but then I slip away from purpose from my mission and from my core desired feelings For all the leaps and bounds that occur when making progress the pain self doubt and self analysis goes into overdrive I need to quieten my mind and gently detach Get out of my head and back into my body and ask myself what really matters I questioned myself for the millionth time about whether the hustle and pursuing the work I m passionate about is worth it earlier this week Within 2 hours of that thought form I had an impromptu half hour conversation with someone and they walked away feeling better and more supported than before we spoke Thanks Universe I needed the reminder that YES all the hustle self doubt falling down and getting back up again over and over and over is necessary It s necessary because the gifts I bring into the world are needed even if it takes a long time to be seen and heard Perhaps this resonates with you too For most of my life I made myself the quietest and the smallest to not be seen or heard That s the outcome emotional trauma had on me It made me want to not be seen It made me want to not be heard It was easier to be shy and quiet than to stand up alone and be a voice What could I possibly say that could be of value or benefit to anyone Whilst the not wanting to be seen or heard was a distinct outcome it wasn t a conclusion The decision was not final and I certain did not make the deal A few years ago I awakened something or perhaps it was the other way around Something awakened me I m still not entirely sure I was searching for something and I pursued it with fervour I wanted answers and I was prepared to go the distance to get them I enrolled in so many online classes a melting pot of creativity healing and life purpose discovery I found out who I was when I painted in my art journal and on canvas Art and creativity were the way I expressed my voice which was still scared to be heard Intuition is a big part of this transformative work I eventually stepped tentatively into the shoes of my true identity and even though I ve fought about whether it was the real me or not I knew that it was No mistake was made here My intuition has been a huge beacon and whilst I denied it for a long time I know to my core that I am who I am Lately my mind has been plagued with questions like am I doing enough am I doing
