I have been reading and using the book The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron,  highly recommend it.  I am building some very helpful habits from following the challenges.  In this week's reading, I was to write out this affirmation and post it where it would be visible as I work.  So, I did one for you and one for me. strong

This week it has been very freeing to just paint, I had some successes and some fails, but overall I enjoyed it and got lost in the colors and shapes.  So, when it was time to write I had to do it with my brush and the watercolors that were already out,  I love looking at it.

I also learned this week that the first and most important lesson of self-defense is knowing you are worth fighting for, made me feel I am contributing to that valuing process.
