Another daughter of ours Rhiannon, dropped into Waubsbay gallery to visit my paintings. It’s special to have my family be there for me by coming into this beautiful space of Waubsbay gallery . They have seen the many months of work put into each painting and my emotional journey with each piece. They have rejoiced when I’ve completed each piece and supported me when I have hit my challenges and then worked my way through.
A few weeks ago I tore my tendons from my bone in my finger so have been unable to paint as it’s in a splint and healing. 2 months of patience as the tendons reattach...
Today I felt so excited as hand specialist said it is on the right path and another month or so and I can start to use it.
Wow has this been a big one for me. I have gone within so to speak and reflected a great deal through this time. I have re visited past paintings of mine.. stripped each layer with my mind and heart and dived into the story of them ... remembering.
My fingers injury has given me space to find peace in the ‘non doing’ of my art and facing myself with gentleness and caring.

I don’t know who needs this reminder but I’m posting it because I definitely do, and I’m sure there are others out there who feel the same. It’s hard starting something new, and it’s easy to get down on yourself if the momentum isn’t there immediately (which is more than likely won’t be). It’s also hard to stop yourself from comparing your journey to others you see on social media. I’m really guilty of that lately! And to be 100% honest, I have had nights where I’ve cried to my husband that I think I am failing... but he tells me “stay positive” and “things take time”. So I want to spread that message to others now, as well as solidify it in my own mind. Rome wasn’t built in a day and I can’t expect my business to be any different. Small wins are still wins regardless of their size...they add up. So stay positive, stay motivated, stay determined and stay the course! ♥️ #MotivationMonday

*PS: I’ve got a pretty big announcement that I’m going to make in the next few days. I’m really excited about it! Stay tuned for that. ☺️
Migraine day today.
Third one this week.
The usual resistance, the usual surrender. The usual mystery, so finely tuned. The dance of navigating it.
This one magically vanished when I did constructive rest position (google it) and I wondered why I hadn’t done that 6 hours earlier.
There are so many things that can either work miraculously or not at all to relieve it. Some of them can make it worse. This is the dance, to soften into it and let my intuition tell me the right thing in each moment. Sometimes maybe the migraine just wants to be here and for me to get to know it better.
Anyway. A lot of time spent in this room this week. A lesson in patience.
But how cool are the shadows on the wall? The detail in them!

/ Patience /
You know everyone's always talking about patience, patience and patience. Just wait , be patient, it'll happen ,it'll take time. And the fact that waiting can be annoying it does pay off well no doubt. Some may get luck faster while others will slowly but they surely do too." Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off." #newpost #blog #ownwords #change #patience #goodthingstaketime #time #people #_BlogsByFatima
