I'll be honest, I am feeling a bit more anxious lately and I am just waiting and counting the days until he returns. I was sitting in the kitchen earlier today and was just staring at the kitchen table thinking about our new life, thinking about what my husband is doing right now and if he is okay. Waiting for a phone call....a call that has not happened yet. I don't usually do well with change. Change always aggravates my anxiety further and causes unnecessary stress. Even if the change is good I will still experience an uneasiness about it and worry.
while I was thinking all this, I noticed an empty paper plate on the table. I grabbed my colorful pens and started doodling on the empty white plate. And you know what? I started to feel better. I wasn't feeling sad anymore. Interestingly, I wasn't even thinking about what I was drawing....I was just doodling without thinking about it. the process made me so much more relaxed and although this may not be a masterpiece, I feel so much better now. The simple act of engaging in an artistic project really quiets the mind and connects you to your Higher Self/Divinity/The Higher Power!!!!
