Creating an extraordinary life out of ordinary moments. Yep, sometimes I need to remind myself of what I’m doing…get it back in focus. Get clear. Initially when I started this blog, my intent was clear as in CRYSTAL. It was to explore the ways in which yoga, art, and life are intertwined, where one spills into the other giving a breath of fresh air to a new perspective. It was to be a blog featuring art with hope through observations that arise in my yoga practice (on and off the mat) and life. Om2art is a reminder that we can choose to create an extraordinary life out of ordinary moments, if we take the time to notice that what we have is already ENOUGH, even when the only thing we have is ourselves. Yes, we are enough. As is.
Om2art is about creating art from the heart authentically, and sharing it with others. It’s about the ordinary magically transformed to the extraordinary. But sometimes the lines get blurred. The ideas come in so fast and furious that before you know it I have a million blog post ideas, projects to do, art to make, pictures to take, a family to feed, a garden to tend, work to do, and a life still to live…..oh and laundry! Then it’s down the rabbit hole of too many things to do in too little time.
And ps – who made that rule? (In the voice of KRR) Who made the rule of “gotta get it all done NOW”??? Seriously – for the birds.
The more ideas that come in, the more they start to feel separate as if they each take on a life of their own. As if they each need attention and seeing as how I’m an all or nothing kind of girl…..I can get overwhelmed and then well….it swings to the nothing side of the pendulum. Enter focus and her good friend clarity (as well as my moms love of all things jewelry).
This “focus bracelet” as I call it, is my reminder to myself of why it is I do what I do. I paint, I love, I yoga and most of all I do it because it not only inspires me, but inspires me to inspire you – and that lights me up more than you know. Thanks mom for the gift of clarity.
How do you all get your focus on?
