When situations and triggers arise, it is easy for some to turn to vices. At the moment we think alcohol or smoking can alleviate the stress or emotional pain. Due to my chronic illness, I am not able to touch alcohol, cigarettes, or even consume most foods. My vice/addiction is creation. No matter what block is thrown in my road, I will step back and internalize the situation. I will fight back with beauty, positivity and enlightenment.

    Well I am glad you use a healthier outlet to alleviate stress and pain – even if the reason is because you can’t touch alcohol or cigarettes and don’t have a choice – but even I don’t feel that is the right solution and I never touch those things (even if it can make me look like a social outcast). And not only does your creations help relieve you, but it brings out joy and inspiration to all of us.

    Seeing this my first impression is something very personal, contemplative – a journey of finding inner peace. It’s a funny thing, but personally, sometimes when I’m down, I can tend to feel more sad when I’m around other people. When I’m alone, that is when I can feel calmer, and reach into my inner world more easily. Sometimes; if not very often, I do need to be alone (I say that but I socialize with people on Redbubble – who I’ve never met face to face – a lot :P) Beautiful work Heather xx.

  • Thank you so much Mui-Ling for the lovely words♥ I as well can feel more sad when around other people at times, strange. But when on our own, working on art, being present, peace and tranquility can overcome us.
    much love and light to you♥
