Yes. I can!

‘Yes. I can!’
Created: 3/8/2013

Yesterday, I had an overwhelming urge to sit for hours and play in my visual dairy.  I started with the outline of a circle and absolutely no idea what I was going to create.  All I knew what that I HAD to put pen to paper.

Many hours later this image appeared with the words ‘yes i can’ weaved into the image.  I rarely use text in my images but these words kept floating around inside my head as I was contemplating life and where I want to go.  I’ve felt a little frustrated lately and stuck… But yesterday, I felt like I can make changes, I can do it – whatever ‘it’ really is – and I can make the life I want happen for me.

This image is very symbolic of the hidden depths I have inside me and how I have, at times, hidden my own beauty from the world.  Yet, now I feel that I am ready to begin to grow.  Ready to share some of who I am and be okay with letting life in.

Yes.  Yes, I can.

How cool would it be to feel safe enough to say ‘yes’ to all the good things and feel worthy of accepting them…
