Eek – what have a done?? I am already a busy person. There are never enough hours in the day – and I just added another thing to the list!
BUT – this is good. It really is.
So – what is it??
Well… As you all know – my mission is to make the world a happier place, one doodle at a time.
It is so uplifting to know that my creations – whether that’s a quick sketch or a detailed commission – can make people smile. I feel so proud that “little old me” can bring a little happiness to the world.
And I know from feedback that sometimes those moments have happened just when someone has needed it.
I also know that creating art makes me happy.
Like most people, I have low days. Like most people, I have worries.
Like soooo many people – my brain never stops. Sometimes it spins. My brain thinks about everything all at the same time. It even thinks about things that haven’t happened yet (and probably never will!)
Except when I draw.
When I draw I am in another world – my own world. (I like to think of it as being in my own little bubble).
I forget everything outside that bubble – I leave the worries behind. My breathing slows down. My shoulders relax. My brain stops whirring like a mad thing. It’s like my own method of meditation. Just me, paper, pencils and paint.
(I often forget the housework too, perhaps not such a good thing!)
Recently I have been thinking – what if I can held other people?
What if my own art skills and experience could be used, not just to make people smile – but actually help people to cope with difficult situations?
And, after much consideration, I have decided to study for a diploma in Art Therapy. It’s another commitment – but one I really feel will be worth it. Invest a little time now, to benefit lots of people later.
My course materials have arrived, so I am all set. I can’t wait to get going.
I imagine you will see my progress, as I am sure I will learn things that I think will interest you too – so keep an eye out here and on all my social media channels (no escaping me lol!).
Till next time
Love Jac xx
