Last week, I created this painted teapot after a snow storm came through Western North Carolina–plus much of the United States (part of a polar vortex, which is an amazing name!)
As I was hand painting this teapot, I was stuck in a few spots.
I felt that my life was a bit of a hamster wheel at that moment.
I felt, for the most part, really freaking great because I was doing what I love.
But there was this other loop going through my mind, that was quite literally on replay over and over and over again. And it wasn’t extremely positive, either.
I know, hands down, that the weather has a huge impact on my sense of YES or NO in my day. In other words, weather affects my whether it’s a good moment or a sad moment.
So, of course during the polar vortex I’m experiencing real good and real funk.
And I looked back on this painted teapot, and I saw a direct mirror of my story for that day:
I experience the same things over and over as I live and dwell on this earth. And within that is all the me stuff: firm, delicate, beautiful, and whole.
Much like this painted teapot full of loops has taught me, I am what I create. My creations are me.
I get to either make beauty of all the loops in my day or not.
In other words:
Life is Art and Art is Life.
What do you think? How would you want to see your life as a piece of art? Would it be a mysterious, joyful, historical, sci-fi, action packed or quiet feeling that others experience while looking at your piece?
Creativity is a most reflective, supreme, almighty practice. Are you ready to start your creativity practice today?
Welcome to your every moment, living and experiencing your beautiful loops.
