You Are Stronger Than You Think You Are {art journal peek}

You are stronger than you think you are.


You can hear the hard things, see the hard things, say the hard things, do the hard things. And still be soft, loving, guided by your heart, soul, truth and creative spirit.


You can be fierce and strong in the face of chaos and still filled with joy.


In showing up to what lights us up inside out, and also, equally, to our interconnection and to what is hard to witness and experience... may we find ourselves stronger, brighter, and more fully alive today than we were yesterday.

These art journal pages in my altered book are prayer pages from the last few weeks. Contemplations. Simple marks made with just a few supplies, as a practice-in-presence that also allows space for pressing issues in my awareness.


The writing between the images is a snippet from a note I sent to my subscribers earlier this week. Want to receive creative perspective musings or reflections for your journaling practice in your inbox a few times a month? Sign-up in the sidebar on the right - you can opt-out anytime.


Also - now is the last chance to join in to receive the Spectrum 2016 goodness from 40+ teachers with offerings for your reflective and holistic-creative journaling practice.


It's self-discovery, art-journaling and so much more. And it's 50% off through our final registration day on November 30.*


I've decided to indefinitely postpone the next Spectrum, as I focus on In The Stars in 2017 and other projects for a bit - so join Spectrum now if you've been curious or holding out!
