Today launches my week over at the amazing website Jenny Doh and team have created, Crescendoh.
When I first read about her new project, I just knew I really wanted to be a part of it in some way. For those of you who have followed my blog or know me personally, you know that the last few years have been quite a journey for me. I've had extreme highs which I've celebrated and have put me on top of the world, and I've had extreme lows that have made me cry myself to sleep and wish I would not wake up again. Moving to North Carolina has been a mixed blessing. I know it's exactly where I'm supposed to be for many reasons. It's also has been a place where I've learned many hard lessons in life and have had to do them with very little support system around me. Support from a far, but not near me. What was near me was my children and a few friends, and my art which consoled me.
July 21, 2006, was the day that my old life ended....
Read how Art has Saved me, not only saved me, but allowed me to grow and become the person I am today and it is allowing me to become the person that shows others that no matter what you are facing, you can get through this. Find something that allows you to refocus your energy into something positive. Maybe it's not art, maybe it's exercise, sports, photography, singing, playing piano...whatever it is, there's a world out there that can accept those emotions you are feeling and help you move on. I'm not only moving on, I'm moving forward.
Thank you Jenny for having me be a part of this community you've created. I'm honored to join you in your new endeavor. It really is about "Creative Passion, Authentic Community, Focused Compassion."
