Art, pop, garbage and meditation – the stuff that is my life!

Just a quick update about some stuff that has been going on in my life!

1) I have sold several artworks recently and am thrilled about it! It seems like more and more people are connecting with my art and that makes me so happy.

2) I have made a huge leap towards better health habits by almost entirely cutting pop out of my diet. I have been wanting to make the change for a while, but was pretty much addicted to Coca Cola. Finally, I just decided to go cold turkey and have felt quite a bit better physically. I do think it has helped my CFS and Fibromyalgia flare-ups quite a bit. Definitely something I would recommend to others who suffer from similar problems.

3) Call me the garbage lady 🙂 Recently I have really been making an effort to make the world and especially natural areas better by simply taking the time to occasionally pick up trash and litter that others have left behind. I know this may sound odd, but I actually LIKE picking up trash. Why? Because it makes me feel like I am making a difference. Not only is it a chance to help keep beautiful places beautiful, but to take care of all living things by removing things that could cause them harm. For instance, while at the riverside the other day, I found an intact glass Christmas ornament…no clue why it was there, but the thought that I could possibly save an animal or even a human from stepping on it and hurting themselves, really made me feel good.

4) I have started a daily mediation time and actually stuck to it for at least a couple weeks now and I can really feel the difference mentally, emotionally and physically. It doesn’t magically make all my problems disappear, but it makes me feel so good that the problems don’t seem like as big of a deal. My favorite kinds of meditation? Probably chakra healing and compassion/lovingkindess meditation.

Well, I know it isn’t the most exciting post in the world, but that is the stuff that is my life and right now, I feel that it is a pretty good life. As always, thank you to all of my family, friends, supporters and fans out there. I appreciate you all more than you know.
