What is Gratitude?

A feeling of appreciation or thanks. So simple, yet so mighty. It becomes mightier as we practice it daily in our lives. Growing it in a group makes it all the stronger.   This gratitude journal will help to reinforce it and give us a great reference that keeps us grounded.  Just imagine after one month how your attitude; those around you; and your life will change…Change your heart…Change your mind…Change your life. A month of gratitude. A month of miracles….again!

It is such an honor and privilege to be a part of a meaningful workshop such as this one. I am SO grateful that Tiare invited me to participate and I look forward to sharing my art lesson with you and telling you all about one of the things I’m most grateful for in my life.

Ordinary Girl - wm
Ordinary Girl

This is “Ordinary Girl”. I’m grateful for her because she is me. I am the ordinary girl who can move mountains, and spread kindness, love, and light. And that is something for which to be definitely grateful.

All of us have a story…

All of us have a story. Some we tell. Some we don’t. But it’s so important to SHARE our stories because it’s how we build connection! Because in the end, we are ALL more alike than different. We are ALL more connected than separate. And as women we need to CELEBRATE that!

With that said, I want to elaborate a bit more on why I can’t stop talking about the upcoming online course and in-person workshop, The Art of Sisterhood. (Which is not just for artists. It’s for EVERYONE)

It’s a course with soul and depth, created with love by the phenomenal Kara Strachan Bullock who I am so proud to call my friend. It’s a course with the intention of uniting ALL women; bringing us together in our shared sisterhood.

I wholeheartedly invite you to join us on this powerful and important course where we will share our own personal stories about trust, vulnerability, love, and forgiveness and then create meaningful, beautiful art as an expression of our stories.

Together. All of us. Every woman. Our sisterhood.

I know it’s going to be amazing!!! REGISTER HERE
