Anyone else feeling a little lackluster lately?
Like December squeezed every bit of energy out of you?
Like you just woke up from a coma and you don’t know what day it is, when you last showered, or what it is you should be doing?
Ugh. I feel it.
The start of December is filled with so many promises, all these events and things leading up to the perfect holiday season. And while it’s fun, it’s a whirlwind. It’s exhausting, draining, and leaving me craving hibernation.
Today was my first full day without an agenda in months. And tonight I was finally able to take out my paints, find my happy place and let it all pour out.
The guilt of not being enough this season.
The expectations laid on me by others.
The inadequacy I feel as I’m unable to complete it all.
All of the anxiety and exhaustion poured out. And all of the hope and grace poured in. This painting is called “Light My Soul”.
And while I still need a good long snooze, I feel renewed. I feel hopeful and excited, I feel that spark once again.
Amazing what happens when you go home to your Creator.
Let’s light up 2020!
