ART in FOCUS: Journey

Before I get to the artwork I am reflecting on today I would like to let you know that I have just put in a new order for my book, so please let me know if you would like a copy!  I also have gift cards and will soon have some jewellery items online for sale which I am excited to share with you!

The artwork I am highlighting today is called ‘Journey’ and is accompanied by the message:

The journey you are on is precious and unique to you.  Embrace all that you experience as opportunities to learn and grow.

Journey
The journey you are on is precious and unique to you.  Embrace all that you experience as opportunities to learn and grow.

I often reflect on my experience with perinatal depression with a sense of gratitude.  I know this might sound very strange as during the experience I was feeling anything but gratitude, I was lost, confused and feeling very helpless.  However now that I have overcome the challenges that were set for me, I feel grateful.  Without this experience I would not be able to properly understand those I hope to help in the future.  I would not have realised and connected with the strength inside myself.  My experience of complete and utter loss was a catalyst to slowly and gently rediscover who I am, this was a wonderful gift and through this experience I have discovered my art and have a sense of direction and purpose for my future. 

Each of our journeys are unique, finding the value in each experience is a gift for personal learning and growth.  Though you may be in a period of hardship at present, even if it feels like there is no end, embrace your journey and find the strength within yourself, you are experiencing this for a reason even if it is not clear to you at this present time.

The journey you are on is precious and unique to you.   Embrace all that you experience as opportunities to learn and grow.
