Finally getting it going, step by slow step.

This morning I finally uploaded some pictures to the botanic art page, that is here on the sunrise sip. It took me a while, due to just the pressure of perfection from my own self. But, last night I turned on music and danced in my home while making a delicious homemade meal of chicken fried rice. I am a huge music fan, it’s healing for me. I used to say that I felt music understood me in a way.

Last night, I realized how much I was missing, while trying to accomplish so many things in such a short amount of time. What I was doing career wise was yet again, starting to take precedence over my thoughts. I was letting my mind start to swirl, instead of letting my hair down and doing something I love to do.

Today I am so thankful I did that. I had some fun. I guess, thats the purpose of me writing this today. Please, for me, do something today that makes you smile. If you can’t do that, then try to do something that will help you relax. Its important to nurish what our souls need in order for us to go about our lives happily and fulfilled.

Well I guess happy Friday, lovely.

Until the next sunrise…
