The Art of Coloring in the Rain…

Inspirations : Designs to Feed your Spirit BY: Joanne Fink

The Art of Coloring in the Rain…

Or just to get out of the humid sun I suppose?

Rain or shine,

I love coloring.

It is my new zen.

What a simple way to clear the mess in the mind.

All I have to do is focus on staying within the lines.

What a simple practice of mindfulness.

And self-acceptance for the times when I drift outside the lines.

Progress, not perfection.

A simple quote, but how many of us get caught up in the “perfection”

without really seeing the beauty in the spiritual growth that develops when we make mistakes, however large or small.

Are we focused on all the milestones we have reached along our journey?

or Are we stuck in the negative mind traps that tell us we are failures?

I have a quote on my mirror that says, “Don’t just do something, sit there!”  It helps remind me when I am running around trying to multi task, taking on way too many projects or errands for one day to just slow down and BREATH…

Have you stopped to BREATH today?

CreAte! ColOr! PlaY!

I am an enthusiastic daughter of God before anything! I serve as a literacy consultant, an Adult ESL teacher, a creative writing enthusiast, and a happy mommy ! Aside from being a better mom by challenging myself to take the time to work with her on kindergarten reading & math goals, including participating in some of her very imaginative play games, my goal has also been to write a couple blogs a week. I am trying to stay connected to the world in a spiritual, educational and hopefully inspirational way to bring joy to other blog readers! Not to mention a nice break up in the monotony of everyday mom life.
