Artist Date #9

2 Artist dates down, 8 more left to go.

So keeping commitments aren’t always fun. Today, I had to drag myself out of my house. I was tired and grumpy which is probably why an artist date was my families best option. I decided to look around the craft store, didn’t find much. So I went to the next store and found a handful of small things that brought me joy. A Kawaii book with both coloring and how-to-draw Kawaii. I walked over to the local café and colored for a while before got my purchase. They gave it to me for free AND then a friendly woman give me a couple of books and thanked me for the joy I bring to the world. It was nice of her. (And I just showed her where all the plugs were. lol) I appreciate all the kindness I was shown today and I hope it continues all around me.

To be completely honest, I would have still been ok with staying home even after all the gifts and compliments. But what’s more important is showing up for myself even when I don’t want to. You know why? Because I’m not gunna be out here forgetting about myself. It’s too easy for me to do that. I have too much to give to allow myself to be so depleted that I have nothing left. It’s my time. It’s my time to shine. To love the way I love to love. To show up for me and for those around me. I’m passionate about this life I live and it brings me so much joy to walk beside those who find the passion with me. So if this is what I have to do to live the bestest most amazing life that the good Lord has to offer me, I’ll go on all the solitude/artist dates I have to.

Wanna take the challenge with me?

I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
