Small Acts of Courage and Hope

Today, I am buried under a huge heap of "NEED TO DO NOWS" real life stuff that has me gasping for air! BUT, my blue bird of happiness is my creative life that is slowly being resuscitated (I had to Google that spelling).

Spring break is next week (HOORAY!!!) and one of the things I'm looking forward to doing is cleaning my wee art space--just a desk really--and sitting in that darn chair that only has second chance clothes piled up on it right now. It's such a small act of courage and hope that it's almost not worth mentioning, but it is. Because it's these tiny, microscopic steps that will lead me back toward a fuller creative life--of this I am certain.

What teensy steps are you taking today towards a more fulfilling life? Do tell! I'm right there with ya!

Courage and hope are two important qualities that can help individuals overcome difficult challenges and achieve their goals. Courage is the ability to face fear, danger, or uncertainty with confidence, while hope is the belief that things will get better and that positive outcomes are possible.

Courage and hope often go hand in hand, as it takes courage to maintain hope in the face of adversity. When someone has the courage to face their fears and take action, they are often able to create positive change in their lives, which can lead to a greater sense of hope for the future.

Being buried under a huge list of to-dos and still answering those creative stirrings makes me think of the tiny buds appearing on the trees outside my window. A hope filled sign of what’s to come!
