I believe in positive affirmations and how, coupled with concrete actions, they can change our lives. I’ve witnessed their power myself many many times and find it weird that I totally stopped for a while. Doubt is never too far I guess.
My heart feels so fulled, I feel like it is going to explode without warning at any moment.
During the retreat, I caught myself repeating again and again (either out loud or just thinking it)«It’s okay».
It’s okay to be here.
It’s okay to be emotional.
It’s okay to share.
It’s okay to be myself (without any mask).
It’s okay to be in that hotel room by myself.
It’s okay to get out of my comfort zone.
It’s okay to tell my Truths (in words, in paintings).
It’s okay to revisit old emotions and old stories.
It’s okay to cry.
It’s okay to laugh out loud and giggle snort in public.
It’s okay not to have the perfect straight hair I am longing for.
It’s okay to love art supplies so much.
It’s okay to create weird and unusual art.
It’s okay to BE weird and unusual.
It’s okay to stay silent for a while.
It’s okay to be a living paradox.
It’s okay to have a girlcrush on someone you feel connected to.
It’s okay to live a wide ray of emotions, all in one day (or less).
It’s okay to paint girls who have no mouth and not to explain how come they don’t.
It’s okay to say «I love you» to someone you just met (not talking about a guy, love my man too much to see somewhere else ;)).
Guilt tends to arrive very easily in my Life. But I am ready to let her go (I know she’ll still visit me from time to time, but that’s okay too).
I think that Acceptance may be one of the biggest lesson I have to learn in this current lifetime. I made lots of improvements on that front, but I am aware that there is still a long road ahead of me… and that’s just okay to be in the in-between stage and stay there for some time. No rush.
