It's a stretch for my heart to welcome the unknown, to stay open when so much is undecided, unclear, unfolding. I like to know and plan... maybe a little too much?
Over and over in my art, I keep exploring this paradox: what it means to be engaged and let go at the same time. For me, it's deep soul work to keep learning to release the illusion of control. Sometimes I find a fresh freedom to be present and flexible with life as it is. Not easy practice, but worthy. (I say that a lot these days, along with another favorite phrase, "Congratulations, I'm sorry.")
Enjoy, with blessings for your own learning about flow and trust. --Melanie
Thanks once more to the Brave Joy Collective members who supported me as I made this art! I'm so grateful we're finding a sense of home on this journey together.
