Love Letter for a Monday – Choosing to do what makes your heart sing!

I was up early this morning, walking and then painting. So i started my Monday doing exactly what makes my heart sing! When i walk into my studio space, my breathing slows down, my muscles relax and this is where my body and mind are at home. I am at peace.

I have a ritual that goes with my studio practice. I walk in, say hello to a photo of my dear beautiful Da, bless myself with holy water and say what do i need to create today. And then i start, sometimes knowing what i am going to create other times i am being lead. Always knowing it goes where it needs to go.
This morning i have a landscape in mind, a piece that i painted over, so there is great texture! I quite often add lots of layers, it resembles life really.

This is my love, my passion, my joy and i have chosen to make this part my career. I have my wellbeing workshops and my teaching and these too are my chosen careers. I am blest and i am encouraged by the fact that these things all make my heart sing. They fill my well and i place my time, my money, my mind and body into creating and making these areas successful.
When you choose to do what makes your heart sing you are sharing your gifts with others and you are also choosing to honour yourself.
My life is full of these moments plus a few lessons that help me to grow, some of these quite difficult at times.

It’s taken me a while to get to this point but i am now at a place where i am at peace and i am doing what makes my heart sing! This year has been a year where so many have had to rethink their careers or have lost their careers. It has been very tough and still is for many people. I have found it so encouraging that people have made decisions based on what they have learnt and also taken that leap of faith and restructured their lives to embrace more family, friends and are choosing to do more of what makes their hearts sing!
Ask yourself today, ” What makes my heart sing?”

My love to you all,
Love Steph
