THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE
It's less than month before Bubba's due date. I've been feeling the urgency to finish projects and the nesting instincts are starting to take over. So many to dos on my list and increased in scope instead of being crossed off! Yet I've also instinctively been working on surrendering that urgency to just focus on being mindful of this present moment. Yes, preparations need to be made but I'm also practicing letting some ideas and opportunities pass so I can focus on simplifying the number of plates I have spinning. It's a new sensation, to relax into the space I have created for the unknown.
I'VE BEEN MINDFUL TO FOCUS ON LOVE AS AN INTENTION.
(It's also the wallpaper I made for Society members this month.) With all the preparations I've been making, for the house, the nursery and my business as bubba is on the way, some days life can seem a little overwhelming. I'm barely threading water and fearful that I will drown in the sea of unknown challenges and I have to stop myself before I hyperventilate! I focus back to love.
ALL THAT REMAINS WILL BE LOVE.
Love for my child, my family and my art. Love will be an anchor during the stormy days and foggy days. When it all starts to crowd out my pregnancy sieve of a mind, I will focus back on it. Because I can't hold too many thoughts in my head now, I guess it's my bodies wisdom in making sure I focus on the important things.
WILL YOU SEND ME SOME LOVE + ENCOURAGEMENT JUJU?
As I wind down to begin my maternity leave in October, I will be a little nervous for my little biz during this time. I don't have concrete plans, I have SOME plans but a lot of it is just me winging it + creating a lot of room for the unexpected. Like my lettering sketches and drafts, there is a huge element of trust in not knowing what will turn up but having the faith it will work out for the good.
