From heart to Art… My world on a page

Tag: courage

Moving Day

So I have taken the plunge and moved to my own hosting….. hope I do not lose too may of my readers.

Change is often scary but as the saying goes, ‘comfort zones are like paved roads, nothing ever grows there.’

Each little step is a step towards achieving a goal. I have successfully completed nine artworks (will post pics soon) and they are ready, framed and off to market. It was not without some trials and failed attempts. Holding thumbs for great feedback and some sales. I do try to remember that Rome was not built in a day, so no matter the outcomes I will keep looking forward and changing what is needed along the way.

The Intellectual Thunderstorm was granted his Disability Grant and has moved into his own little abode on the property. His next step in striving for independence. He has also started his first steps towards his own little business. More to follow soon. He is learning to juggle a whole new world, oft times daunting, however he is coping better than expected.

The Pink Whirlwind has grown so much, it feels as if I blinked and all of a sudden there was a young lady in the place of my sweet faced cherub. She is officially a tween and life is all about style, selfies and bff’s. Current style and best fitting her personality is that of free spirited bohemian.

Our family grew over the last few weeks, in addition to our 2 lovable Pups and 2 cuddly Hammies, we welcomed 2 feathered friends in the way of Silkies (fluffy chickens). A mothers day gift from my handsome Bearded Biker. I have to say they have really tickled my heart strings. Charming, sweet little peckers they are. Took only 3 days and they are running to greet us at the gate when we approach. It seems that its not only men who’s hearts are found through the tummy 🙂

I hope the days past have been good to all of you and that through each hurdle you may have faced you remember a great saying I love, “If we have never failed, it means we have never tried.”

 

When your ‘Inside out’ is someone else’s ‘Upside down’

My Intellectual Thunderstorm is battling through a tough week. Bouts of anger, anxiety and utter confusion in his own mind. His need to have a ‘normal’ social life conflicts with his current inability to cope with the emotional and psychological demands that the world outside brings.  Demands the rest of us shrug off as just another daily humdrum are like climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for him, emotionally and physically taxing his system till breakdown point.

Being an adult in this world with the ability to navigate its harsh edges with a bit more understanding is hard enough. I watch him battle, my heart burning in pain for him, knowing that no matter how many times or ways I explain it, he still won’t understand. A sad reality of life, we need to live it to gain the experience it so harshly dishes up. The experience so needed to survive in a time when humanity batters and bruises the souls of those they do not understand with their ignorance. Imagine being a child with the intelligence to know you are different and with the dreams and hopes as big and as vast as anyone else could imagine. Yet on the inside, one who is unable on most days to understand his own mind, never mind the complexities of the rules of a society that refuses to see past that difference.

We need to stop and realize that someone seeing the world differently to you does not make them less acceptable or wrong. How could we possibly see the world the same if we haven’t all lived the same life.
