Hello lovelies, its Stephanie…the lady who draws these little cartoons and the artist behind Hello beautiful soul.
I want to take a moment to share my thoughts with you.
If you have been part of this space for a while, you might remember that I used to post paintings filled with positivity and encouragement every day throughout social media and here on the blog for a while.
I used to tell long stories about my life and the lessons that I learned along the way. (Some were REALLY long..thanks for reading!)
My facebook page started all of this and was the place where I began my journey towards healing my heart.
When Dharma Joy popped into my journal, my whole life shifted.
Through the years, I have created hundreds of cartoons and even an inspiration deck!
With all that is going on in the world…it somehow has shifted my sharing and my inspiration has disappeared. It has left me in a place both mentally and energetically that is tough. (I’m sure you are feeling it as well.) It hurts my creative heart. To be totally honest, I’ve thought of giving up my whole business and if it wasn’t for my kids telling me not to…I might have.
I find myself wondering how on earth a little cartoon girl and her bird friend can help. What can I say that will help? How do I say it? Do I respond to each and every act of injustice and pain in the world or do I keep it as it has always been?
I don’t want the world to think that I don’t see what’s happening out there. I see it all. I feel it all. It all hurts.
I am an optimist. I am an encourager. I am enthusiastic and positive and light-filled and bubbly. I am one of those “unicorn people” who believe that love will fix the world. I believe in happy endings and magic and color and JOY.
I’m not fake. I’m not phony. This is who I am.
And I wonder…How can I make a difference?
And on really bad days…”does it even matter?”
Have you felt like that? Wondering if what you are doing…matters?
It does. Every little thing you do, matters.
This world of ours is in dramatic need of more love. More hope. More joy. Let each one of us, do our part.
