Good morning! As you know from my last post I was suppose to work with my husband today. Filming as a part of someone else’s pre-project, inside a recording studio. Suppose to get up early, get to the train, bring coffee and sandwiches. But here I am, at home, looking at the view of the fields and lake outside our window.
I would have messed it up by joining as planned. Not necessary messed up this day, but it would most likely mess up tomorrow and a very important job I got Monday. I know myself that well. Strict priorities, changed plans, low energy, high on emotions. But I will do just fine today, and the next days. Because I am here right now. To make good choices do me good. And it does those around me good. It fuels my self-esteem and balance.
Today’s headline and photos are important to me. How I talk with my daughter about emotions, good and bad, how we talk about seeing beauty in difficult things. To share, to talk. The sensitive and fragile, but still so full of bravery and courage. There’s some extra challenges on this topic in this house, and to be open an curious about it makes it a natural part of life. Even though it’s a little different life. One filled with opportunities and love. She’s just been here for a week, and it was all about drawing, her favourite activity. And I can see how she looks up to me and my work. That feeling… She clearly sees beauty in sadness, no doubt about that. And apropos inspired: she wanted to sell her picture, so now I’m a little poorer, and she’s got some extra spare money…
I want to sell some of my work the next days too, so there’s a flash sale RIGHT HERE trough out October. Use the code: YESPLEASE. You will get 15% off and free shipping on everything. Happy weekend! I will spend mine to be kind to myself and others, and prepare for my Monday job.
