I was playing around with this face and really didn't like the placement of the second eye. So I cut it out and added hair to fill the space. The concealment of part of the face made me think about what is hidden when people look at me. How much of me do they really see? How much do I hold back?
Rather than making resolutions for this new year, I have picked a word, and let it inform my goals. One general direction I want to continue in is in giving more of myself.
When we give of ourselves, we give something unique.
When we give of ourselves, our gifting and experience comes together to bless someone.
When we give of ourselves, being fully present with the person/people we are with, we begin to truly hear and see them, and they feel that.
When we give of ourselves, we don't diminish, but in some mysterious way become even more our true selves.
So let's be brave. Come on, tuck that hair behind your ear, be fully present in each moment, and give more of yourself this year.
