52 Lists: Week 11

Right now a lot of my work on myself has been about seeking balance. Sometimes I know things, but I get to caught into the busy and life starts to drag me down so that I forget key elements of ME.  Doing art and making the time to do art is essential for keeping balance in my life. When I let it go, I fall down.  I start out just feeling a little off, then it moves to being blue and finally it will sink into a full depression that is hard to pull up and out of when I fall there. So really pushing hard to be able to have my balance.  I also have noticed that although other creative outlets help me from sinking - it is my art that really keeps me centered and grounded in ME.  

I have decided from now on that I am packing a little art kit to go with me on the road when Michael and I travel.  On our way to Idaho, I told Michael about it, but mentioned I was rushed and wished I had put a few other things in it. He stopped and bought me some supplies to supplement it.  He is amazing and so supportive of me and what I need. I am a very lucky woman!
