Oops! + a way to make your photos look more magical. (Sneak preview of my new course!)

Maybe it’s spring, but holy moly, I have been in a creative frenzy lately! Have you been feeling it too?

For me, it started with a week of intense anxiety that I was having trouble managing… nothing was working! All my usual self-care tricks like walking, talking with friends, meditating couldn’t even touch it. I started to wonder if my trusty anxiety medication wasn’t working anymore! And then… I listened to that quiet voice in me that kept whispering, Paint. Paint.

Within 45 minutes of swirling colors around with my brush, the anxiety had lifted. I was fully present again, in my flow and my joy. I was a bit shocked. And I remembered that this is precisely how I survived my 20’s and 30’s. Before I started Zoloft, I painted. Nearly every day. It has always been (since childhood) the way to calm my nervous system.

And now I’m a painting machine! I can’t stop.

Mother’s Day Oops!

A client just let me know that it said sold out for the Superhero Bullseye pendants! But there are still more available + they are up in the shop now! Last call for Mother’s Day orders! (+ free shipping included)

Here’s a sneak preview of Intuitive Photography! A little post-processing tutorial to get you inspired. If you’re ready for more, click here for more details about my upcoming Intuitive Photography course!

Have you been following me on Instagram? I’m doing a #100dayproject!

I had this one all wrong as a kid. I had collapsed lovability with performance, perfection, getting it right. There was little room for error. In this world, any criticism is a threat to your survival- and all you can do is defend or be crushed. 

What I know now is that we’re all just messy, beautiful humans trying to survive and get love and not get left behind.
I think today is supposed to be day 28 of the #the100dayproject but I am on Day 21. I decided not to worry, just let myself skip days as necessary, because I know that if I think I’ve blown it, I’ll quit. Zero sum game. Old paradigm. And so I’m letting it not be perfect in order to keep going. #the100dayproject
