I’ll never forget when my 8-year-old son said to me, “Draw what’s inside you.” He said it with complete matter-of-factness, and was sitting at a table doing just that. I, on the other hand, was completely stumped. What was inside me? What did it look like and how would I draw that on paper?? These questions sat with me for a year before I got an answer. If you’ve read my story, you know I got an amazing answer and it turned out to be much more than just a drawing.
Since then, I’ve been tapping my inner resources daily and I’ve marveled at the effects on my life. I know it’s true for everyone, that what’s inside us is just waiting for the opportunity to reveal itself. It needs quiet and stillness, little to no thought, and an outlet. And once that power and beauty is released, there’s no stopping us! The benefits are multi-layered and color the entirety of our lives. Our relationships improve, we attract people and opportunities that resonate with our truth, we laugh more, we feel healthier and look more radiant, we take more risks, we embody courage and strength. The list goes on and the expansion never ends.
If you think a drawing could change your world, give it a try. It certainly changed mine!
