“How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also if I am to be whole.” ~ C.G. Jung
One of the many reasons why I ❤️the Enneagram is the way it sheds light on our shadow sides. Living in the PNW means going for lonnngggg periods of time without seeing shadows and then when the sun finally comes out the shadows are striking. The unwrapping of the true self is similar - we can go for long stretches without seeing our shadows, then right when the light of discovery falls upon us, our shapely shadows show up too.
When I get in touch with my dark side , it helps to remember the rainy months and how I would rather have the sun with it’s undeniable shadows any day! 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
#the100dayproject (If you are curious about the Enneagram, my #hopewriter friend @katiejoramsey wrote a perfect intro article about it in @relevantmagazine with references to more Enneagram resources - I linked it in my profile here)
Slow Down... Those are the words my dad would say to me growing up and still today. Whether I was running around with my brothers or excited and telling him a story, he'd say slow down. This comes to my mind everyday - no matter what I'm doing as my dad instilled this in me. Then, I took another meaning to it. Life moves fast - we spend all day working and need to SLOWW DOWNNN... enjoy life. I read an interesting piece this morning on facebook about Steve Job's - his last words... doesn't matter how much money you have - you can still not have your health or friends or love... cherish and cultivate these things! Our treasures are in heaven, not on this earth. Slow down and enjoy time with family, friends, work hard but don't work your life away. You'll never get those moments back. Slow down and enjoy life, all! #slowdown
First day of summer... i mean, my first day of summer 👉🏻swipe right .

We all know 1 Corinthians 13:4- “ love is patient, love is kind, love does not envy....” right? Like most weddings, they were said on mine and I remember closing my eyes as I was listening to each. ✨
Paul begins to paint a picture of love’s qualities, and one of the first strokes of his brush reveals that love is kind. I, like most of you, have had others do me wrong. Naturally as humans we want to fight back and get even, but have you ever actually wanted to forgive them or be kind in return? Y’all it’s haaaaarrrddd. ✨
I’m gonna put this out there- BC, like in high school, I would have not let that flown. If you did me wrong I would be the first person to confront someone and get even and hurt them in a way that they did me. Obviously reading “my ideal guy” list we can obviously see the little Sarah probably wasn’t where she needed to be in life. ✨
This walk with Christ is not easy. There are obstacles I face all the time, especially when these situations pop up. Like for example- the elephant in the room- when did women start becoming sooooo hateful to one another? Why does it have to be competition over community? Why do we have to say hurtful things to make ourself feel better?? I started following someone on IG who I looooveee who literally had someone make such a rude comment to them FOR NO REASON!!! **Insert a kazillon eye rolls here** ✨
A life of love and kindness is one aspect of living in a way that pleases God. When we are kind to others it is a reflection of Gods love for us. You can’t be loving and unkind at the same time. It actually is super simple to be kind, anyone can actually do it.
We have to be better at this. Much love everyone ✨
Леттеринг из Ганновера. Вот и пригодилась золотая таленсовская гуашь, взятая на всякий случай. 😀 На фоне - старая ратуша, прекрасная чуть более, чем полностью.
Lettering from Hannover, Germany. I used gold Talens gouache which I took with me just in case. 😀 On the background there is old town hall, so gothic and beautiful I can't handle it.
Once again a reminder, that we all start somewhere and for most of us, that’s right at the bottom. 🤣😉💗✍🏻 Don’t get discouraged with your beginning, just know we were all there once & practice makes progress! #howtohandletterprocessvideo
Phew...it has been a crazy 2 months; first traveling around Asia and then back into madness with work and church commitments! But its all good and exciting things that are happening! Stole a few minutes to start practicing again but taken me a week to upload (on the bus)....also got me some new pens in Japan..sooo many goodies. I wish I could've bought the whole store!!
