My life lesson this week is to let things be shades of grey. I know this because most of the ideas fighting for my attention seem very BOLD and RED. But in reality - the TO-DO lists and errands and all the other things that seem very urgent turn soft shades of grey when my small people are sick. It's a change of perspective and it was very clear to me this week as I edited what I wanted-to-do down to what-I-should-do to what can-totally-wait. I am guilty of letting the unimportant get in the way of my very-important sometimes and when that happens this kind of thing is a bit of a gift. Oh, I definitely don't like it when my small people are sick, but this week's message is been clear to me: the rest is shades of grey. The imaginary deadlines. The MUST-DO's. The phonecalls and grocery-getting - all just blurry greys when there are small people with high fevers and sad eyes.
I am grateful for fresh eyes today and the ability to see the colours from the shades of grey.
The watercolour at the top of this post is eventually going to appear in my ARTSHOP. Circle November 21st on your calendar so you don't miss the art, the deals, and the colours.
Today: it's a Girl Tribe day and we have a playdate + a visit. You know, the colourful awesome things that require being present + clear. And they require coffee + tea. And maybe a cookie or four.
