Inspired by the Cultivate Project, I share my thoughts and encouragement to begin a creative day to accompany a new piece of artwork every month.
Once we get comfortable with our weaknesses and our strengths and all of the in between, it leaves room for acceptance. Acceptance of who we have been, who we are, and most importantly who we want to become. Acceptance is about wholeness. And acceptance all of yourself leads to trusting yourself. This allows yourself to open up to other relationships with acceptance and trust.
This act requires us to quiet the ego which in turn leads to more empathy and acceptance towards others. Something the world needs now. However, we must first learn to quiet our ego and lean into acceptance and most of all be willing to do this. Willing to sit with ourselves and to begin again.
This is tied into strength – it takes strength to do this. But you can. And you should because it’s also about self-love. Accepting all of ourselves, not just our strengths or good parts (that’s only feeding the ego), but all of ourselves is an act of self love. We need this. And the more we open ourselves to loving every part, the more we allow others to love those parts and we in turn can love others in the way they deserve to be loved: not just for their strengths or good parts.

We need to know where we are going and then keep our eyes there while working in the moment of where we are. Otherwise we’ll just go where ever our eyes are looking. And if they don’t have something to look at we’ll either end up going in many directions with the many distractions or end up stuck in one spot. This is vision.

This month is all about daydreaming, something I’m excited to talk about because it is one of my favorite things to do. I never come out of a daydream in a bad mood, with anxiety or feeling sunk. I always come out inspired, active, and excited.
Hi, I'm Kathleen Scott
I’m an illustration artist and printmaker that holds a special place in her heart for all creatives, art, coffee, and running. Yes, I actually like to run. I was on the state championship cross country team in high school and ran for Wake Forest University. I still run, though not competitively. I do it for the love. Just like I draw for the love of art. And of course those things drive my love for coffee. Lots of coffee
