It's ironic how in those moments when we need connection the most are the moments we often tend to isolate ourselves. Or at least that's my experience.. perhaps for fear of being a burden to others, perhaps for seeming weak, that we don’t have our shit together. And oh now, we’re not happy all the time, really?!

To further contribute to that when we are fuelled by the passion of doing what we love, when we are inspired, and motivated, we accomplish so much more.. and that energy of passion, inspiration, and motivation seems to energetically attract that which we need much more than when we are unmotivated and uninspired.

I feel that creativity and healing are deeply intertwined,
for each time I begin a new project, a process begins:
