Happy first snow day ❄️ Even though it still feels to early for Fall to be over (at least in the North East), there is something magical about the first snow of the season.
.
Especially having grown up in Florida, I love to observe snowfall. Here’s five little illustrated lessons about Mr. Snow ⛄️
.
What’s your favorite thing about seeing the snow? ☺️👇🏽✨

One of my absolute favorite things to do is go in nature and paint what I see...and feel. I started doing this years ago and it’s what got me into watercolor painting. It helps me stay present and gain a little more perspective on life and my place in it.
.
Yesterday was my birthday and I’m only now taking a moment to reflect on the blessings in my life. So often I’m plagued with self doubt and lack of clarity and confidence. It can seem consuming at times until I allow myself to take a breath, a pause, a step back and be amazed by the gifts I’ve been given in this lifetime.
.
Aspects of my short term future may remain unknown, but what I do know for sure is that I’m the recipient of a lot of love and wisdom. The only reason I have anything to share with you all is because I’ve been filled up by so many others in my life. What I share is a translation of what I’ve received and I hope to never forget that.
.
Love you all, and here’s to many more years of creative expression ✨🙌🏽

Lesson 10/10: I am simply a witness.
•
It’s almost ironic. After drawing over 100 emotions, my most important take away is to separate who I am from what I feel.
•
My lesson is to accept. To hold space for what I feel, give them attention, and then let go of them. Again and again.
•
Thank you all for following my 10 lessons and what I’ve learnt during my creative process. 💛Anyone else struggle with separating their reality from their feelings?🤔🙈👇🏽

Life is cyclical. There is no real ending or beginning, and just like our breath, it can be as simple as a deep exhale.
.
That was this weekend’s lesson from nature. Observing the changes in nature is a good way to notice them within ourself. My friend Tatiana (@tatianakphoto) told me how Fall was nature’s exhale: a time to release and let go of what’s not serving.
.
What’s your favorite lesson from Fall? 🍁

My hope has always been that my artwork is a mirror that allows you to see yourself better.
.
As an artist, I share my story only in hopes that eventually it becomes YOUR narrative as well. That you move from being a witness of art to a participant...and before we know it, our stories are combined and connected and we don’t know which is mine and which is yours. And that’s a pretty amazing connection to have.

Obscure Emotion: a phrase I coined back in 2016, a series of 100 illustrations, an idea that turned into a book, and an emotion you’ve always felt but struggle to find the words for.
•
Thank you everyone for your comments, insights and love for this series! Last week I re-posted these drawings after over two years, and it was so great to know that it’s still relevant. That it’s still meaningful to so many of you.
•
This project is a practical example of seeing how “What is personal is most universal.” It gives me a lot of hope to know that no matter how different we seem on the outside, we all still speak the same language of emotions. We’re all still going through one big Human Experience.
•
Which of these Emotions do you relate with the most? Comment below 👇🏽💛

This has become my personal philosophy when it comes to my work.
.
It's powerful to think that our most personal stories can be so universally applicable. That our private, personal experiences can also be one big human experience as well. Share your story with scathing honesty and you'll find it resonate with many more people than you ever imagined. ✨

Time passes, regardless. It doesn’t pause when I’m happier or more sad, when I feel inspired or when I feel stuck. It just...keeps going. And this fact alone has inspired me to complete the 100 day project 4 years in a row.
•
The passing of time is something I  need to remind myself of. Again. And again. Because time will pass regardless of what we do. But wouldn't it have been nice to have created something during that time?
•
If you were given 100 days to create something, what would you do? 👇🏽💙

An #obscureemotion is an emotion you have felt so deeply and viscerally, yet don’t have the words to articulate or express.
•
In 2016 I coined these two words together when I was experiencing my own Obscure Emotions. During that time, I was in a new country, in a new relationship and experiencing life from a curious new perspective. I started to draw how I felt as a way of understanding myself better. I challenged myself to do it for 100 days.
•
The biggest surprise for me was to see how these emotions were so universal for other people. We all feel so much that we don’t know how to put into words. Knowing that I could help someone see their emotions mirrored back at them was the success of my project.

Quantity over Quality. Yes, read that twice. I've gotten a lot of confusion about this, but I firmly believe it.
•
Quantity is so underrated sometimes that I want to take a moment to celebrate the power of just MAKING stuff. We are so paralyzed by the quality of our work that often we don't make anything. We are afraid of our own imperfections. But really, all kinds of opportunities and insights will open up if we allow ourselves to temporarily forget the quality and do the quantity.
.
Simply show up, create, and repeat. And eventually the quality will show up too. 🙌🏽

I want to be hidden from the world. I want to be seen by everyone. It’s two sides of the same coin and just two voices of my own ego.
.
Raise your hand 🤚🏽 if you can relate. How do you try to move past the voices of your ego and act from a place of true confidence? (And not just looking hide yourself or prove yourself).

There is a type of empowerment that comes from broadcasting your heart publicly. Our most powerful self we can be is our most personal and honest self.
•
I will also admit I’ve always thought it was tacky to post personal things so publicly. But there is something special about sharing your most honest, private and intimate story with the world, in a language everyone can relate to.
•
I often feel that I live in a world where millions of us are all competing to broadcast our opinions. In a world where we’re so over saturated with media, why try sharing anything at all? Because our most honest self is worth sharing.

Lesson 4/10: I create my own pressure, limitations and expectations. How much pressure do we put on ourselves to live up to a certain expectation? A lot. It can be frightening....but also empowering when we use it as a tool for self discipline.

I can live in any place in the world and yet my mind will either make a home in “What used to be” or “What could have been”.
.
Being present means being able to live in between those things. It’s really hard to do. But when I can do it, it’s a good day and gratitude comes easily.
.
Who else oscillates between these two places? What do you do to try to stay present? 👇🏽 comment below I’d love to hear more! 💙

What we value as attractive may always change, but there’s something about real honesty that is always appealing.
•
I really believe that before we can be honest to others, we need to be honest to ourself. Ask ourselves what is our motivation for posting this, or saying that, or doing this. Becoming aware of our motivations and then OWNING it is powerful.
•
I wrote these 10 lessons two years ago when I wrote my “100 Obscure Emotions book” and during that time I was trying to practice honesty in my artwork. But I learnt that by drawing how I truly felt, I was able to help someone else identify their own feelings and own it too. That’s why honesty is so powerful- it’s contagious. And it spreads. When we can own up to an uncomfortable truth, it gives permission for others to be honest about themselves too.
•
For me, honesty means being real. Owning where we are at and trying to always be aware of our deeper motivations.
•
Do you find ways to express yourself with honesty? Tell me your thoughts and experiences with being honest 🙏🏽👇🏽💛

Our bodies are fluid and change according to our environment. We are what we hear, what we see, what we learn, who we are close to, and what we are nurtured by.
.
In the city, my body is like a cacophony of the people I pass at every moment, the sounds of the endless hustle and bustle, the tension created by always counting the minutes and trying to pack my schedule as much as possible...but in nature, I am soft and responsive. I am able to tune into my inner world and feel in harmony.
.
What does your body feel like in nature? Do you find yourself “carrying a different type of body” in new environments? 👇🏽 comment below and share 💛☺️

Our bodies are fluid and change according to our environment. We are what we hear, what we see, what we learn, who we are close to, and what we are nurtured by. . In the city, my body is like a cacophony of the people I pass at every moment, the sounds of the endless hustle and bustle, the tension created by always counting the minutes and trying to pack my schedule as much as possible...but in nature, I am soft and responsive. I am able to tune into my inner world and feel in harmony. . What does your body feel like in nature? Do you find yourself “carrying a different type of body” in new environments? 👇🏽 comment below and share 💛☺️ . . . . . . . . . #nature  #instart  #illustrationgram  #the100dayproject  #dailydrawing  #sketchaday  #drawing  #sketch  #art  #typography  #lettering  #poetry  #motivation  #motivationalquotes  #100livingwords  #quoteoftheday  #bodypositive  #growth  #seasons  #citysounds  #illustration  #seeds  #plants  #upstateny  #positivequotes  #positivity  #watercolor  #inktober  @morganharpernichols @bymariandrew @meeraleepatel @youmeempathy @nathanwpyle @mazadohta @glennondoyle
