I learnt something today. It is extraordinary. I truly believe this is something I have been beginning to learn for over a year now. It no longer sits on my shoulder and floats in my head, finally it has crept into my soul. Today I learnt that.
Moments do not define me, they do not demand who I am. It is what I create that defines me and brings forth my heart and my soul. This is what matters, my gift to the world.
There are still lots of lessons for me to learn, as this enigma of life and being has been truly complicated by the world I have grown in. I write this like I am separate from it all, yet I am not, we are completely connected.
Last year I ended my year on a very difficult level, I was wrecked, broken and feeling lost. What caused this was the working world that I live in. My work as a teacher, this I love. The destruction was coming from the turmoil I was feeling with the pull of my art and having to go to work. What I have recently learnt, during a lengthy time of rehabilitation from surgery, is that I love what I do and I have much integrity in what I do, as a teacher. That turmoil I was feeling was destroying my integrity and I needed to heal this.
I am a teacher, an artist, a mother, grandmother, partner and a perfectly imperfect human being.
I celebrate all of who I am on this day and will each and everyday live my dream and let my art define me and moments leave me with everything I need to know.
Welcome to your world.
