A zentangle coaster.  I’ll have to set up a shop on etsy soon!  My coasters have been really popular lately. I accidentally made the coffee too strong and I’m a little jittery.  I’ll want a nap later!  #zentangleart #zentangle #zentangles #doodlesofinstagram #doodleoftheday #mindfulness #recoverywarrior #anxietyrecovery #copingskills #zen #zentangleartist #artistlife #artistsoninstagram #artist #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #selfcaretips #selfcare #anxietyrelief #staycalm #anxietywarrior #peacefulart #peaceful #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #artheals #napsaregreat

Everything I do today is a marvel compared to how I was this time last year.  To fulfill my dreams, I first have to walk through the wilderness  Pain is a given but I can learn how to reduce my suffering and increase my joy. #gratitude #joy #bpdrecovery #bpdwarrior #anxietywarrior #anxietyrecovery #mentalhealthrecovery #motivated #lisaharper #wilderness #spirituality #positivevibrations #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #wedorecover #inoneyear #redemption #lifeisajourney #apppreciatethejourney

Day 2 of high anxiety. Anxiety is a liar - it says that every tiny decision is of equal importance.  I was late to my therapy appointment because it was just SO important to decide what shoes to wear. *rolls eyes* Uncertainty is hard and I want to be super controlling in order to compensate but it always backfires.  I know the best thing to do is to embrace the moment and be open to whatever happens.  But that’s HAAARD. Anyway I’m here at Starbucks with oatmeal and a chai tea latte trying to relax.  Here’s one of my watercolor postcards with advent words on it-a better frame of mind.  It’s much easier to be mindful with pens, paint, and paper that I think I will get out my journal for a little while and draw.  I’m grateful for my journal, my therapist, and for my anxiety PRN. :p. #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #focusonthegood #anxietyhelp #anxietyrelief #anxietyrecovery #anxietywarrior #artheals #watercolorsketch #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #paintersofinstagram #advent #hope #joy #peace #vistaril #therapy #mentalhealthrecovery #alifeworthliving #hopeisreal #anxietysucks #bpdrecovery #bpdwarrior #atlantapainter #pursuepositivity #alliswell #positivevibes #goodvibrations #adventart

I’ll be selling my watercolor postcards at a small party Thursday night.  Right now, I’m watching izombie and making more coasters.

Job defending himself.  I like how Job is sure of himself.  His friends keep on telling him that his bad luck is due to some terrible sin, but that’s not actually how it works. Bad things happen to good people for no reason except for the fact that life isn’t fair. Good works will not spare pain and bad works do not guarantee it either. Knowing that we have acted in integrity can appease our heart a little if we don’t get caught up asking why.  No one can act in integrity 100% of the time, so cut yourself some slack too.  Know you are doing what you can and that is enough. #spirituality #lifeisntfair #badthingshappentogoodpeople #badthings #goodthingshappentobadpeople #acceptance #missingthemark #focusonthegood #integrity #actwithintegrity #scripture #pain #lifeispain #youareenough #enough #selfcare #selfassurance #alifeworthliving #gratitude #itiswhatitis #radicalacceptance

Zentangle coasters. Sprayed with a sealant, they were a big hit at a recent art and recovery event.  Here’s my first customer of the day with her four.  #zentangle #doodleart #zen #zentangleart #atlantaart #atlantaartists #atlantacrafts #coasters #alifeworthliving #hopeisreal #recoveryrocks #bethechange #focusonthegood
Another mixed media zentangle postcard. I’m having fun experimenting with zentangles and watercolors and markers.  In fact, I feel like my whole life is an experiment right now.  I’m in a time of personal adventure as I figure out what my next steps will be artistically and career wise.  A lot of good things are happening and I feel open.  I’m intentional when I plan my day but I don’t have a too intricate plan - just taking it one step at a time.  #zentangleart #zentangle #zentangles #doodlesofinstagram #doodleoftheday #mindfulness #recoverywarrior #anxietyrecovery #copingskills #zen #zentangleartist #artistlife #artistsoninstagram #artist #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #selfcaretips #selfcare #anxietyrelief #staycalm #anxietywarrior #peacefulart #peaceful #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #justkeepgoing #lifeisanadventure #artheals #zentangleart #zentangle #zentangles #doodlesofinstagram #doodleoftheday #mindfulness #recoverywarrior #anxietyrecovery #copingskills #zen #zentangleartist #artistlife #artistsoninstagram #artist #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #selfcaretips #selfcare #anxietyrelief #staycalm #anxietywarrior #peacefulart #peaceful #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #justkeepgoing #lifeisanadventure #artheals

True so true  If he was wrongfully accused, then we ruined his life (even though he still got the supreme court) - all the women triggered and left dealing with the fallout are just a joke... I told my psychiatrist that all the news about Kavanaugh was triggering and make me more anxious and he was sympathetic.  My friends are too. We gotta take the care/validation where we can.  It comforts me to know that God is with me too.  Is God with Kavanaugh? I hope that God is more like a thorn than a friend right now to men but that’s not for me to know #lisaharper #metoo #metoomovement #resist #spiritualhealing #spiritualgrowth #collegememories #feminism #supremecourt #smashthepatriarchy #sadness #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #trauma #mentalhealth #triggered #anger #sexism #sexualassault #godiswithme #validation #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #cptsdrecovery #ptsdwarrior #recoverywarrior #anxietywarrior #anxietyrecovery #severeanxiety #traumarecovery

Another mixed media postcard.  Isn’t she cute?  Her name is Gertrude. Lol. It’s fun to do something whimsical every now and then when I’m usually so serious. You know what they say: slow and steady wins the race.” Although, perhaps it’s better to just keep on going on instead of focusing on winning.  The whole journey versus destination.... It’s a gloomy day here in GA but I’ll just keep on going anyway. #zentangleart #zentangle #zentangles #doodlesofinstagram #doodleoftheday #mindfulness #recoverywarrior #anxietyrecovery #copingskills #zen #zentangleartist #artistlife #artistsoninstagram #artist #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #gratitude #gratefuleveryday #selfcaretips #selfcare #anxietyrelief #staycalm #anxietywarrior #natureinspired #peacefulart #peaceful #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving #justkeepgoing #turtleart

I’ve made a series of mixed media postcards that hopefully I can sell Friday.  Hope is a bright flower that grows amidst the pain-After talking with my doctor earlier, I feel a lot better.  #alifeworthliving #artheals #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #gratitudeattitude #recovery #mentalhealing #freedom #mentalfreedom #liberation #gratitude #positivevibration #joy #hope #hopeisreal #mindfulness #mindfulliving #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalwellness #mixedmediaartist #mixedmedia #painterslife #paintheals #itgetsbetter

“ from my bullet journal “ Come to me, all of you who are weary and have heavy burdens and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28-29.  Last night in Bible study we talked about how important it is to take time out of every day for rest and renewal.  That mindfulness is mandatory is a lesson I seem to have to learn the hard way every day.  The busier a person is, the more essential it is for that person to reflect mindfully.  I was very overwhelmed by emotions yesterday at church-I didn’t even stay til the end.  Fortunately, I was able to settle down for small group.  There is safety and rest in small groups of intentional people.  Find your people and rest. #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #positiveaffirmations #mentalwellness #mentalhealth #bpdrecovery #bpdwarrior #ptsdrecovery #cptsdrecovery #anxietyrecovery #anxietyrelief #copingskills #innerstrength #onethingatatime #mindfulness #onestepatatime #momentbymoment #meditation #faith #trusttheprocess #pause #rest #selfcare

Today is a day for positive affirmations.  It’s so easy to be hard on one’s self but it’s not where we are called to dwell.

“ when I feel well, I can take care of myself and connect with others.” Yesterday during the wellness recovery action plan activity, we made collages of what keeps us well and what we are like.  If it takes me a really long time to get simple things done and to take care of myself, then I know that I need to up my game. Of course, with chronic anxiety and fatigue, it nearly always takes me longer than most to get chores done, but if I can make a to do list and follow it, then I know I’m doing pretty good.

Don’t you hate all those no filter hashtags where the person still looks perfect?  I have OCD, which results in skin picking.  I’ve actually gotten a lot better than I used to be.  I’ve had a fantastic day today, which is why I decided to show this unflattering picture, showing the red rubbed raw areas.  Flawless no filters are bullshit.  No one looks perfect all the time but it doesn’t matter.  When I was a teen and young adult, I was obsessed with being thin and pretty but I wasn’t really that happy.  Now that I truly believe in myself, being thin and pretty no longer matters as much as being confident and authentic does.  I am much happier now.  #edrecovery #edwarrior #ocd #ocdrecovery #ocdwarrior #recovery #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #selflove #selfacceptance #hopeisreal #alifeworthliving
