When I think back on moments where my life pivoted, it usually involved 1) some sort of realization that I desired something new (inspiration) and 2) my own willingness to acknowledge and invest in that inspiration. It’s not always easy to identify those moments, but I can usually trace backwards and realize the moment when the inspiration struck based on the trail of activity I left in venturing toward it.
One of those trails leads to Lisa Sonora Beam. I had started art journaling years ago but really didn’t know it was “a thing.” I was pretty isolated about it and never thought to look outside my own practice to realize others were doing it and helping each other do it. When I saw Lisa’s 30 day art journaling event, things sparked all over and of course I took it! It left a 30 day trail that continues to inspire me into my artistry!
Since my 30 day art journaling experience with her, I’ve also made my way through her “Creative Entrepreneur” book. I share her message and message on the personal fulfillment art making brings to us all. Check her out: Creative + Practice. Maybe you’ll have your own life pivot. 🙂
