Mental Health Mantra 64/365 and Dog Mantra
Today was a challenge of a day to find the head space to be, with paints, with me, with dog.
My heart strings pulled in other directions today.
Sitting down to draw Holly the lovely Bassett Hound on Day 64 pulled me right back into alignment.
Holly is the most cutest girl. Kind, loving, always happy and wanting to go walking for hours upon hours, then coming home to bury her self under the sheets.
I have been told that Holly would always avert her eyes from the camera and rarely look straight in the camera, preferring to be in the moment, finding the fun, right in that now moment.
Posing was not her thing.
Holly shares a great lesson to me right now, to do fun things, find fun things despite worryingly all that goes on around me and in the country. Holly would always find fun things to do, to play, to experience.
As I sit in creative meditation and draw these dogs in March I soothe my soul, stepping into a way of being that is more aligned and attuned to what my soul is whispering.
I have to be very still and quiet, find pockets of time during the day to do this, zoning out external noise and listen to my own inner compass. It is here my soul speaks. It is where our soul speaks.
Thank you dear Holly for the reminder and to Jenny for sharing the story of her beloved.
Keep finding the fun Star Seeds.
