Busy Year Bountiful Progress

The year was so busy I felt like a bumbling bee bumping into everything but the flowers I intended to encounter. It was long and much of it went by in a blur but not without some good lessons. I moved from NC to The FL Space Coast which was rough. I walked the beach a lot, almost every day after our move to FL because it is one of my anchors in times of lots of change. It truly calms me. After adjusting from the move I found this amazing writing critique group and we meet each week. I’ve learned so much from them. I found a job as a media assistant and love it! That put me in overdrive, but I’m still loving it because I’m curious beyond infinity (yes, I know realistically that doesn’t make sense but it’s fun saying it). I learned I shouldn’t let anyone dull my sparkle, and how to pace myself in my writing. With that said, my word for 2019 is PAUSE. I will:

Pause to enjoy the things I love, curious things, and mi familia.

Pause when I make mistakes to ponder on what I learned and to plan for improvement

Pause when I’m being my worst critique so that I have time to make a U-turn and switch to positivity and constructive things instead.

Pause when I’m not brimful of happiness, or balance so I can regain my wits and fill my lamp with light and love to edify others.

So with that, I leave you a token from one of my many beach adventures:

Susanna Leonard Hill Contest

I was told I can enter a photo for Susanna Leonard Hill’s Illustrator Contest with the illustration prompt “discovery.” I love that she has added this fun contest for illustrators, very exciting stuff! Well, since I had a crazy amount of fun painting this piece I wanted to post it here for those of you who are not on other social media and may not see it. If you click on the image it enlarges it. 🙂

Here it is: Little Red Riding Scarf
