Rise and Shine


On this beautiful day, I'm reminded that all the darkness in my life has every right to BE here, because it's this darkness that teaches me lessons and connects me even more to WHO I am and what I love and that no matter how gloomy it may seem to get, and no matter how much I think the gloom is "bad" and no matter how many times I want to run as fast as I can from it, it always, ALWAYS, shows me that I rise and shine through it all (even in ways I could never, ever imagine!).

Happy Easter, friends! 

Until next time....

Why do I doodle? Because it easily calms my mind and soothes my soul so I can not only embrace the light, but the dark as well...because without the dark, I'd never know what LIGHT is (something that's hard to do when my mind is running five miles ahead or behind the present moment).
