Creating Beauty From Pain

In her recent blog post, Rommy asked her readers what our favorite way to express ourselves is.

Mine is drawing and painting. These are a few. As you can see, my art varies. I am inspired by things I see online and in nature,  and sometimes by my mood. Being as I am often struggling my way through this lifetime, I tend to strive towards creating beauty and peace... something I crave in my life, but seldom obtain. It lifts my mood to be able to create something beautiful out of pain and distress.

Cease & Desist

I hit me tonight that I am sick of all this doom and gloom bullshit. It's bad enough that it's constantly in my head, but to always write about it... I thought it would be cleansing to let it all out, but now I see it as more fuel for the fire. I'm ashamed and disgusted with myself for permitting my haunted thoughts to possess every waking moment.

It ends now. This chick has had enough. It's time that I return to focusing on the positive in all my mess. I can't rid myself of this festering monster if I continue to feed it.
