It’s totally summer around here. After a few super full weeks, I can sense that things are calming down and I’m super grateful for the breath and the space, and the chance to slow it waaay down. Yes, yes, yes.
The other day, I spent an hour or so in total silence and rest. Mind blown. I must do this more often. I could hear my pal Brene whispering in my ear “cultivate rest and let go of exhaustion and productivity as self worth. ” Hello, truth. Rest + play are definitely two things I’m working on. And so. I am resisting the urge to paint that room, unpack that box, launch that new idea, sign up for that new class, and on and on. Instead, I’m working on the thing that keeps circling back to me every few months, a whisper wanting some attention. It says to go slooowwly, and create lots of breathing room along the way.
I can totally do that.
Speaking of listening to our lives, I cannot tell you how much I love having this Frederick Buechner quote up in our living room (a Sugarboo design). I want to live this thing fully. Bravely. Beautifully.
Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!
Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.
Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
