What's the point?

Yesterday I found myself having some extra time. I was grateful for these bonus moments because I had a bit of homework to do, and a deadline to meet.  Quick back story: I'm wicked good at self-care on both personal and professional levels. I am not, however, very good at business; and was having a bit of a struggle with my website.  Generally I feel a bit uneasy when it comes to the business side of things.

Art Journal: Balance

Art Journal: Balance

Today my heart was feeling extra heavy due to all of the imbalances there are in our country right now (and honestly, always has been).  While I don't have the solution to creating a more fair and equal playing field in our nation (though I've got some good ideas where to start), I know the best I can do is create balance in my own life so that I have the energy and focus to make positive change where I can.  One of the ways I center myself is by art journaling, and today I meditated on creating balance during chaos.  To...
