Putting the colour back….

paint by colour

Just lately the phrase ‘navel gazing’ has passed my way, as has ‘stuck’, ‘pausing’ and ‘resting’……I prefer to call it ‘artful ‘sploring’. I am looking for a new creative outlet mainly to bring in some life balance from all the emotional work I do and also to boost finances.

I have been trying so hard to find something that I have been rather self defeating in my ‘sploring. I have found that if I try too hard then I lose confidence in my abilities as nothing sparks my imagination and also, pushing too hard sends the wrong signals out there.

A friend suggested I went back to what I already know, but I think the answer lies in embracing something new.

Funny how the answers are coming from kicking back and doing a little of what I already know. Blogging is a good example, I missed my writing and interaction with my family in our global village and now the energy from that is starting to flow again it is helping.

Whatever I end up discovering and doing, just the thought of ‘sploring to find it is painting some new colour into my life.

    I am very pleased you are blogging again. Finding a new source of income is never easy. Sadly, I know that all too well, but you are rich in gifts and I am sure events will smile on you

      Hello Ducky and thank you. You will find a way, I am sure of that. I am keeping it as simple as possible at this end and we will see what comes from that. Blessings for my main stream of income. 🙂

    Sometimes it might seem to outsiders that we’re ‘retreating’ or ‘backsliding’ by going back to what we know. In fact, sometimes it is only so that we can gain our footing and start forward again. Much of what we achieve is from the steps creating in going the wrong way. 🙂 ~ Love, Bobbie

      Yes Bobbie, exactly..I call it ‘moodling’ as we find a new way. I also think there is no such thing as right or wrong, it all makes the picture colourful…much love to you xxxx
