Today I stepped out of my comfort zone and sent out some “Thank You” notes to some really awesome people. 📝
I don’t say this to toot my own horn. That’s not really my jammy jam. I only say this because I think it’s nice to thank people for showing up for you, for supporting you, and for listening to your crazy ideas.
Today, I challenge you to send out some thank you notes. Whether it’s a text, a call, a DM, or just your barista. (But you should always thank your barista.)
You’ll be surprised how far a simple “Thank you” can go.

Creativity occurs in the moment, and in the moment, we are timeless. – Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity
What is ShaktiArtistry?
A unique experience for anyone wishing to delve deeply into a creative process and release blocked energy.
How does it work?
Yoga opens up our chakras unlocking divine energies which is why many reportedly experience higher levels of flowing creativity after a yoga practice.
The combination of Yoga, Meditation, and Artistry:
Fear and ego often arise during the creative process. We may feel vulnerable putting our hearts into a canvas.
Meditation helps us to achieve alpha (relaxed yet focused) state of mind.
Fears can be released and unblocked allowing insights the freedom to arise which can be transferred into artwork before ‘lost’ again within the shuffle of life.
Experience the sense of freedom and clarity that this powerful combo can invoke.
Have fun expressing yourself in an environment that is based on no judgement and free flow. **The ShaktiArtistry workshop will be held on June 9th from 6-9pm at The Unison Arts Center. We’re beyond excited to announce that Maggie from @vitalityyogaflow will be joining us. Maggie will lead participants through guided meditations and deep breathing along with a yoga flow that activates your core (space of creativity). Olivia will guide us through the process of making abstract art. You will discover a place of treasure within yourself as you explore the flow of ShaktiArtistry** Tickets on sale now through the Forever After Art website 🖤 #foreverafterart#shaktiartistry#vitalityyogaflow#art#yoga#yogaandart#abstractart#hudsonvalley#newpaltz#painting#practice#workshop#creative#creativecommunity

Things that go together:
encouraging words + good design.
We Go Together. #atlaslocal
The end of a busy six weeks in the wellbeing world! Both campuses have been a hive of activity. It's been a pleasure and a privilege to wander around to see, hear and experience the work of our talented students and staff coming together for what will be a truly exciting end to the year! The last few weeks - the final push will be busy and stressful at times. As I've said before stress is natural and an essential part of life. It's how we handle it that's matters. Try to remember that your very best is good enough. Don't compare your work to others, your unique personality makes your work...whatever that may be, personal to you. There will be days where things just don't go to plan... that's ok, just remember a bad hour doesn't make a bad day. Take a break, go and get some fresh air, breathe and get back to it. Schedule some you time.... yes you do have time! Remember that staircase...one step at a time...and and you'll soon be at the top..The end of the year/course will be here soon enough. You (and many others) will be able to stand back and admire or watch the fruits of your labours! Dig in...enjoy this last push....this is what you came to HCA for and you are what makes us such a fantastic creative community! #wellbeing#finalpush#digin#stressless#positivethinking#thursdaymotivation#breathe#yourbestisgoodenough#selfcare#mentalhealthmatters#relaxation#creativecommunity#talent#art#performingarts#blacksmith#textiles#crafts#illustration#musicians#workshops

I keep getting caught up in the comparison game.
There are days where I'm beating myself up thinking I'm not good enough.That I have nothing of value to offer on here.
I am certain that this is all normal and that peaks and troughs are inevitable.
And I know that some of you on here have talked about this too and I am not alone in this feeling.
But I do get impatient with myself sometimes.
I want to just go with the flow and see where it takes me.
The joy of creating on here should be my focus not the number of follows or comments.
And so here is a reminder to myself.
I must remember to not focus on 'what is' but to create my own reality and to firmly believe in that version instead.
Focus on lack only creates more lack.
Focus on abundance always creates more abundance.
Thank you Abraham Hicks.
Have a lovely evening people of Insta. I love all of your work. It inspires me every day.

L’été est enfin arrivé à Paris, mais avec la pluie. Dès que le soleil sera revenu, je pourrais enfin profiter de mon sac @sezane pour lequel j’ai eu un coup de cœur. C’est mon cadeau d’anniversaire de moi à moi !
Je m’imagine déjà le trimbaler partout avec mes petites affaires pour ma retraite @moonrisejournal et pour les vacances en Sicile. Il me tarde de sortir de Paris pour m’oxygéner les neurones.
