The time of the year has come where the leafs start to fall and eventhough i love autumn this still can bring me into the feeling down and even is the time where i bring my wall back up and find it hard to share love and even more difficult to accept it..
I know it is just another layer to work out and that i will be ok when i have done just that, but when being in the middle of these emotions it can still make me feel awfull.. big difference now is that i know the best thing to do is accept those feelings and to let them be.. and be the painting helps too like it always does..:)

    I can’t begin to tell you how deeply I relate to what you’ve said here, Liesbeth. The end of this month does exactly that to me and last year, I regret to say, I simply could not handle the darkness – outside or inside. I dread November always and more so in recent years. This year however, I have your images to bring light to the space around me and I’m determined to be better – not to go into hibernation and withdraw as I did before. So here’s the deal – this year I’ll share what light I possess with you and take some from your beautiful creations and that way, we’ll both feel more light than darkness! Beautiful image, my friend.

  • Lianne.. thank you so much for sharing your feelings.. it isn’t easy to do this i know.. first we have to see and accept for ourselves what is going on.. and in sharing we can only hope that others can understand a bit of what we are going through.. never can they understand all of it if they haven’t been there themselves and that’s what makes it even more difficult..
    You know Lianne.. before i tried to fight this feeling.. but i found out it works better to accept it.. not withdrawing..being activ and going outside are ways to keep going.. but the secret is to go on with the acceptance that we have these feelings, and finding little things to be gratefull for ..and sharing..yes..that too helps a lot.. and i love to share with you dear lady..
    Really appreciate your honest words..♥

    your words chased my heart down this morning dear lizzie… and this work made me smile… knowing who we are inside and seeing that there is room in their for the dark as well as the light is half the battle won…… and being open to the love that moves amongst us takes care of most of the rest…… so what’s a little darkness eh? we can handle it………. much love to you………..b

    Wow Liesbeth….I popped on here briefly and this caught my eye immediately. I read your words and could have written them myself….we’re really not so different. Showing love and accepting it in return is a struggle for me. I can really only show my true feelings through my heART and through writing, and that’s why I do it. One day we will no longer have any walls and every season will be as beautiful as the next….I’m sure of it. Until then please know that there are people who truly understand and maybe we can all get through this together. Peace to you….xx

    art – being creative – is so healing….
    this is beautiful and a perfect way to express these moments of restlessness….or manifest some sense of reality into them.
