Two big things today...it's Canada Day and I have made it to the half way point on the 52 WEEKS PROJECT!!! I can't believe it. And in honour of this milestone I decided to paint the porcupine that lived in our lilac bushes for a few days. Our family was enthralled watching him sleep and stretch and yawn. In the sixteen years I've lived in this town I didn't know we had porcupines here.
Porcupine represents innocence & wonder and is a symbol of faith & trust. A reminder to remain grounded and child-like, to remember fantasy & imagination. A symbol to let go of criticism.
In that vein, I spoke with artist and life coach Liz Wiltzen this past weekend. Our conversation was an eye-opener for me, a catalyst really. She reminded me to let go of the criticism of the past and hellped confirmed what it is I need to do to fully follow my passions. A life-affirming moment. Her motto is 'What if you loved your life?' Speaking with her was such a huge gift and I'm looking forward to staying connected. If you need some clarity or direction in your life, I highly recommend contacting Liz.
