It is no secret that I’m an introvert, pretty strongly so. Some days, I crave solitude and quiet so much that I won’t even talk to Siri. . Also, whether it is due to personality, my season of life, normal adulting or all of the above, I don’t have occasion to spend a whole lot of uninterrupted time in the company of other adults. . As a result, I feel like a lot of my communication with friends happens non verbally (texting, messaging, email, social media posts). Or the verbal communication I have tends to be more rote than anything (work, kids, weather, repeat). . However, I recently started doing more video messaging, and that, combined with several in person adult chats with friends has made me realize the value of verbalizing. There is something very honest about hearing your thoughts aloud. . Sometimes a conversation will help the pieces fall into place for me. I’ll be talking about something, and suddenly everything clicks and the truth of what I’m feeling comes tumbling out. But the other thing that happens a lot to me now is that I HEAR some of the crap I say to myself. Things I know better than to say, but when it’s just running around it your head, it’s somehow easier not to notice it (though I know my body and mind notice!!) . For example, I was chatting on a video message about getting up early to work (or work out) before the kids are up. And I started to say I just can’t do that. But I had to keep correcting myself. I can. I’m choosing not to. I am tired, in part, because of the choices I make. I’m also telling myself I can’t get up, so it feels harder. I finally settled on that I am not prepared right now to get up early. But that I need to shift my thinking. If I’d just been typing it out, I don’t think I would have really felt it the way I did saying it out loud. . I like writing. And I like quiet. But I’m developing a new appreciation for the power of speaking aloud. #sayitoutloud #excusesexcuses #itsachoice

Sometimes when part of an illustration isn't working out, you have to start over! I ended up not liking the border I drew after I inked it, it was just too busy. When I started working on the third drawing on this series I designed a new border that works much better! Thankfully it isn't too much work to redraw the two I had done since I have graphite transfer paper. 👍 🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘 ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ #arty #myart #art_we_inspire #instaart #instagramart #instaartwork #instadraw #instaartist #illustration #illustrator #illustrationartists #illustratorsofinstagram #create #showyourwork #womenwhodraw #girlswhodraw #creativehappylife #handdrawn #naturedrawing #womenofillustration #witch #witchy #borntocreate #livetocreate #artinspiredbynature #moonphases #moon #wip
