Someone call a doctor, because doing this painting killed my hands. Good gravy. That foliage. HOWEVER. Finally, with some help and encouragement I managed to get through it. Special thanks to my fiance for carrying me through and not letting me die in a deep, deep sea of despair  :D

Steven Universe ala “The Swing” in homage to one of my fave painters,  Jean-Honoré Fragonard. 

I realized that I cannot unlove you.
So now my heart has a new prayer.
I pray that you’ll find happiness.
And in return , I will find mine.
I pray that someone will love me the way I loved you.
And may I love this person a thousand fold more than you.
By then I’m sure my heart will stop looking for you.
—  A Prayer For My Heart // Conee Berdera

Made my first spell jar! I’ve been pretty emotionally unstable today (probably just going to be on my period soon) so for my spell jar the main thing was just having a better mood.
I added:
•Dirt from a place that makes me happy
•moonstone (promotes emotional stability)
•valerian root tea leaves (calmness)
•chamomile tea leaves (calmness)
•cinnamon stick bark (happiness)
And that is all. Really hoping this helps🙌🏻

Imagine how life would be different if you just completely let go. Surrender your ego. Let go of your negative thoughts, worrisome plans, and unrealistic expectations. Imagine how much more peaceful things would become.

Life would be so much simpler.
