My Boys

November 12, 2010

Journaling Reads:
I was recently reading a blog post by an artist I admire who’s about to have a kid for the first time. She was saying how she’s been told it’s impossible to be creative and successful once you have a baby. They are so much work and so inspiration goes out the window.

I thought, no way, it’s totally the opposite.

My children have brought me more inspiration, more creativity, and more success than anything else. They inspired me to scrap, to paint, to take photos and to get better at each of them so I could capture our memories in the best possible way. They gave (and continue to give) me unlimited fodder for art, photography, writing.

More significantly, they inspired me to be more authentic to myself, to be happier and more peaceful so I could set the best example to them. Show them that people can live a full life and still be authentic. They accepted me and loved me just the way I am. They encouraged me by telling me how beautiful my art is. They are the definition of inspiration.
