What do you do when you don't feel like painting? Do you push yourself to do it or do you do what you feel inspired to do? This is a tricky one. I found myself in this dilemma for the month of January and part of February. For a little while I did just push through it, but it just didn't feel right inside. So I asked inside what would feel good. I was quite surprised with the answer. Clean out my office closet, my art closet, remodel my office and work on my taxes! I was shocked. I actually wanted to clean and purge and organize. These are things I usually have to really push myself to do. So I went with it.
I'm on the other side now. I now have super organized closets and a super organized ( and pretty) office with super easy access to everything. No moving this and that to get to things. (Jealous, aren't you?) Something I had been tolerating along time. It feels so glorious, I just want to do a little jig every time I'm in my office. I'm so happy I just want to paint and paint and paint. I was a little scared about stopping the painting and following this inner urge, but wow, it has made such a huge difference. Once again I'm amazed at the wisdom of following where my heart led. When in doubt follow your heart!
