What Makes You Feel Alive?

I have either been pregnant or breastfeeding for the past three and a half years and while this is such an incredible journey I have found myself needing to spice up my life as a mother.  When I ask myself ‘What makes you feel alive?’  My answer is always; When I am creating something.

I took this seriously and began creating art as a true means of healing myself after struggling with postpartum anxiety and depression.  I studied art in college and after a couple of creative setbacks, I abandoned my practice for over a decade.  When I took a job as an art teacher after teaching special education for seven years, I fell back in love with the process.
