There’s been one huge blessing (a gift) as I recover from my big disappointment and lingering sickies. It is this:  I think I might be obsessed with Hello Soul, Hello Business. Class started a week or so ago and I cannot (cannot!) stop checking in on our students, emailing back and forth with Beth, getting excited, getting more excited, reading all the responses in the classroom, in the facebook group, and on and on.

It feels like Christmas. Like when you work on a special, secret gift for someone for a long long time and then the day arrives (Christmas) and they receive it and they not only love it, but they LOVE it and you just beam with pride and joy. Pride and joy…because there was so much love and thought and effort that went into making that gift special. Because you made it just for them. Because creating that gift was a heart + soul experience for yourself in many ways and their joy in receiving it, really really receiving it, is the greatest feeling ever.

So yes, that’s where I’m at right now. I’m beaming. And feeling a bit like a mama bear, crazy proud of it all – the students, the course (Beth and I are proud parents of the content which is a baby that we birthed for a long, long time), and how it’s all unfolding…for all of us. Just really grateful. Really, really grateful.

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.
