Embrace

Embrace: to clasp in the arms, to encircle, to enclose, to include, to cherish, to take in, to welcome, to LOVE.

What a powerful definition of a word, right?  When I painted this almost one year ago, I doubt I truly embraced the meaning I was putting into the words on the canvas.  I embrace things daily....and hope you do as well.  From my children, husband, family, Lily, my home, and my dear friends.  But embracing let's say.... my business, or ME for that matter, let' get real,  no.  It seems a tinge bit selfish to embrace yourself, right?  To truly to embrace yourself  you have to let go of self-doubts, of anger, of pity, of you know.... all those whattheheckareyoudoing? monsters in your head.  So I challenge you with Thanksgiving on the horizon to stop and think about what you are beyond in love with about yourself.  Like so beyond giddy about it makes you cross-eyed.  And welcome those things back into your life.   Because once you truly cherish your being,  you will find that all the other little elements in life will fall neatly into place.  Yep.  They will.  I pinky promise.
