New drawing! This time I drew @heyitsfeiii and I loved every second! She's so sweet and lovely and this picture just showed her beauty so well (so well in fact that I couldn't do it justice!) Maybe I'll start doing more pencil drawings? Who knows ^-^ #drawing #girl #model #pencil #sketch #art #lfl #artist #artwork #original #reference #illustration #traditional #l4l #pen #paint #painting #ink #watercolor #acrylic #design #features #study #expression #medium #art4small #youngartisthelp

[New Blog Post] In a culture that has its head swooning in curated Instagram posts telling you to be #allthethings at epicness level 100, 100% of the time, it becomes even more important for us to fulfill our own version of simplistic happiness. ⠀ ⠀ About a week ago I told you about the question that was ringing in my head, "What am I doing now that gets me to where I want to go?", followed by my talking to myself IN PUBLIC 👀 as my brain figured itself out.⠀ ⠀ Well, I'm glad to say I'm no longer just going through the motions of life! And those eye-opening questions I promised I'd share with you? You can find them in my latest post on the blog:⠀ ⠀ How To Create Your Big Picture Happiness, linked in the bio.⠀ 📸 : Suzana Sousa (Unsplash)⠀

* you look at me to ask your simple question, what has happened to me? i try to look at you to say that if i know the answer of your question, it will be simply easier to breathe for me and you. ** you hoped to help me, to solve my problems, to heal. with the passage of time, your hope for me faded away. you speak wise words but never dare to look at me while doing it to hide the fact that you fail in following your wise words. *** you believed to make me well, to better my positivity, to guide me to have a feel of experiencing the light. with the unfortunate circumstances, you realised that your beliefs are not strong enough to come true when the real drought strikes hard in one's soul. that's why you choose to ignore me and drifted away from me for a reason of your reason. **** you and i are same breathing beings, the difference is you are not me, i am not you.

‘What is it you plan to do with your one wild + precious life?’ these words by Mary Oliver have occupied my thoughts for the past year. This weekend, on the last day of my 28th year I launched @thegirlnessproject - an initiative to support young girls + women develop a healthy relationship with Self and body. Everything that we do will be founded in 3 principles; Community (coming together), Conversation (non-judgemental and open-hearted dialogue) + Consciousness (practices that raise our awareness). I sat in a room full of people (loved ones + strangers) and shared my story. Every important moment that lead to this. Not the glossy overview, but the heartbreaking reality of an existence that was filled with struggle and a warped sense of body and Self that occupied most of my waking hours. Every moment makes sense now, because I know this is what I was put on this Earth to do. It has taken me 14 years to get to this place. To sit in presence and speak with grace. 14 years of healing, 14 years of growth and fear + breakthroughs. Just this year, another shift took place where I realised that ‘my’ story was not just mine, in fact it belongs to so many women and not only did I have a duty to heal this conflict within myself but I also have a responsibility on behalf of ALL women to talk about the things that we typically want to run from (and trust me, I tried to run!). @thegirlnessproject is something that I wish I had had access to when I was younger but it’s also something I am still benefiting from right now - the love + support from a community of empowered women. My hope is that our work will support the many issues we face including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image issues and low self esteem. I understand that sometimes the body can be a difficult place to call home. My intention is to help you see that your body can be a source of great inspiration and information. I hope you will start to get curious about what it means to be ‘embodied’ and recognise that your very existence is a great gift to this Earth. So here it is: thegirlnessproject.com (link in bio). Through community, conversation + consciousness, here’s to rising together. p X
