I have had passion for art since I was a little girl, though I repeatedly lost sight of it, but I made a decision. The decision to keep on creating despite the many stresses of life. I made the tough decision to keep choosing art, no matter what excuses my mind would tell me in order to keep me away from it. I am learning to accept myself, which is not easy at all. A huge part of my surrounding did a very good job with making me feel like shit, simply for being me. Now is the time to take full responsibility for my life. I can't blame other people for my sadness or my anger anymore. I can't hold others accountable for the fibromyalgia, the chronic pains or the emotional stresses I go through.
I made the though decision to be brave and to follow my heart. Because I know for a fact that all these health issues I am currently dealing with, have a lot to do with my unhealthy psyche. In order to heal physically I have to heal emotionally. I am ready to let go of anything which doesn't serve me anymore and I plan on surrounding myself with things that make me happy. Finding strength in my creations has a lot to do with it. For me personally, it takes a lot of courage to surrender to my artistic needs. This is why my current art series is called “Brave is the heart”. It is time for me to stop being afraid. This is the time to be courageous.
