Wisdom Lesson Letters

Perhaps guided by some previous words of the year, Release (ease) and Trust, my days have been devoid of push and rush. Thankfully, the anxieties of the past lives have melted into the abyss. A combination of happily being on anti-depressives and a discussion about self-hatred with my therapist which brought me back to the place of self-compassion. Being cruel and judgmental really doesn’t do a lick of good for anyone. Funny how we keep trying it out though.

Keeping myself feeling happy and safe by doing what I feel I need to do balanced with what I want to do. Noticing every time I feel discomfort, my brain and body telling me I need more or less of anything. I am present and looking to a future I want to look forward to. And it will require much laughter, creativity, collaboration, and community of course.Here and Happy on Shalavee.com

My life requires me to be present and committed. And I no longer dread but look forward to this coming Summer. Our family has gotten strong together this past year and having missed our vacation last year, we are looking forward to it just a little more.

So maybe I’m just resetting to vacation mode early but I hope it lasts and lasts.

I have spent so many years fretting over this blog makeover and it’s finally happening.

The new face of Shalavee.com is here, still under a little construction. I owe a lot to the ones who facilitated the actual change. First to Danielle Darling who envisioned the new site and logo and then to Hayley Geller who took the wheel and recreated it.

What does this blog update mean to me? Besides having a site that is technically updated, it means that I get to stand proud for the next steps that I take here. Not only can I invite people over and not worry about whether the doorbell will ring or the couch will break if someone sits on it, I can get into the groove of writing with joy again. Writing about what interests me, what I’ve created, and telling people to come take a look!

A New Shalavee.com is Born on Shalavee.com

You can still look forward to twice weekly blog posts on Tuesday and Friday. And coming soon, a regular Newsletter ! I will be offering called Wisdom Lesson Letters which will allow people to subscribe to actual art mail from me. And I’ll be looking to create a community around the Creativity and Self-Work through my Soul Selfie and Our Creative Selves challenges.

Perhaps I’ll give away something to garner more look-sees. Perhaps I’ll host another art challenge come soon. If you know me, there’s going to be something happening soon enough. I’m rather prolific and spastic.

Please sign up for the blog posts and newsletter and keep in touch with me through comments here or on Instagram. And thank you for being here witnessing this with me. I’m giddy!
