“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass… It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”

I REALLY love that quote. SO sums up me, my art, my life, everything. (I have no idea who wrote it and there was no one credited with the quote where i found it, so i take no credit for it what so ever).

For years I have ‘waited for the storms to pass’..the old saying ‘this too shall pass’… so we sit it out, bravely, strongly and we wait and hold our breath and its excruciating…instead of stepping right into it, facing it, acknowledging it and realising ‘it’ cant kill us, we just have to change our perception of ‘it’.

So many cliches we are conditioned to live by,its criminal….

.. its still  going to rain, its always going to rain! Learn/change to love it, every single freakin drop..and your whole world will change. I promise. 🙂

Life doesn’t ‘happen to you’, YOU create it.

  1. Had to come sneak a peak at your work after you found me. Fabulous really, so lush in color and expressive in emotion. My kind of art.

    Thank you for your kind comment on my bouncing baby bracelet blog.
    Now it is time for dancing….read you again soon.


  2. Thanks for subscribing to my blog as it introduced me to your vibrant, passionate, & even spiritually charged work. It’s refreshing to see work that celebrates the positives in life. Can’t wait to see your finished moon piece. I’m still learning how to dance in the rain… creating art helps 🙂
