win…

I’ve learned to celebrate when I WIN over the urge to shrink, and instead choose to shine.✨

Simply becoming…

Breathing deep the sweet fragrance of joy.

Have you ever just let go?

Really let go of who you thought

you were to be,

to simply just becoming.

Simply present…

Comfortably exhaling all inhibitions as I creatively live freely in spite of imperfections. ~ denise marie

Painting has been an imperative creative outlet in my healing process.

No agenda, no expectations, no right or wrong, just simply being present.
