Hello to you all! It’s been a while since I have stopped by here. Life has been seemingly full with a little one, who is quickly growing and is already 4 months old! Motherhood has been an incredible adventure thus far and full of so much learning… about myself, about caring well for Evie, about priorities, the list could go on.
Time for painting has been less, but I have been able to get my paintbrush out here and there. I am excited to share with you a painting that is officially complete and ready for a new home. This painting reads “Your Life Journey is a Lovely Adventure,” certainly fitting for the season of life I am currently in.
A lovely adventure does not come from a perfect life, one that is always challenge free or free of risks, but it is lovely because it is a gift. In this painting I hope to communicate that your story is important and beautiful even through the messiest of life-seasons.
I was inspired to create this specific painting because this message is important to me… seeing the value in the process of walking through your life-journey and not just in the destination (If you stop by here regularly I am sure this is not the first time you have heard me talk about this message). It is something I am passionate about because I continually struggle to embrace my own journey. Believing my story is a beautiful one is a challenge for me and I am so easily tempted to fixate on destinations; to allow myself to see only what is not perfect or desirable about my life and myself, instead of being thankful for the ways I am blessed, growing, and loved. I want to be a sharer of truth and this painting overflows from a heart that has and continues to struggle to believe that my journey is a lovely one… but it is. And so is yours.
I hope this will be an encouragement and reminder to those who see it; that your life, the simple and little pieces that make up your story… that all of the little pieces are coming together to write a beautiful story that you are living. The adventure is your beautiful unfolding story and you are the only one that can bring your unique story to this world.
so I hope you embrace the adventure and believe that as messy as it can feel at times, that it is lovely and worth being be shared.
