It has been snowy and very grey since Sunday.
Not the most cheerful weather for me.
I definitely feel the lack of light and how it effects my mood.
I am trying hard to use some of the tricks I know to keep me from sinking.
One is painting with bright colors.
I am so in love with my new “Fruits of my Labor” piece.
(11X14” acrylic on canvas)
I have to say that Golden Acrylics are such a joy to paint with when you need that vibrancy and saturation of color. Expensive yes, but they really are worth the money !
I haven’t done any Christmas decorating yet.
David and I always travel for Christmas,
the decorating seems like more work than pleasure.
Maybe my Christmasy mood will increase this weekend.
But I have started lighting my sweet twinkle lights in the living room, my studio and our bedroom every day.
That is a light that makes me smile.
Another thing that is really good for me is to focus on giving.
Getting out of my own head and sharing my gifts with others in a genuine, no expectations way.
I did that at meditation class this week.
I brought my rocks with me and offered each of the 10 or so people in the class
to reach into my bag and choose three or four rocks for themselves.
The magic happened as always !
A couple of women were amazed,
and received just the message from the Universe that they needed
and I received loving hugs in return.
I am so grateful for those rocks and my Rock Fairy job.
I am working on other little gifties to bring smiles to some others in my life as well.
All so good for keeping Kimbo in a shiny place.
Today is sunshiny, even if it is cold.
I promise myself to get this head out into the sun and soak in some of those rays.
I hope you find your shinies today too, Beautiful Ones !
Big winter time love !
