I never knew there were things I was semi-decent at that would actually heal my soul. Then a few years ago I started painting. It was amazing. I was terrible at it at first. I had never had a lesson. I kept trying, though. I loved mixing the colors. I loved seeing what would happen if I put this or that together. I loved playing and mixing and testing out ideas. Suddenly my ideas began to start looking better. They weren’t so clunky. They’re actually getting better. I enjoy it more and more . I think about it more and more. I would rather paint and write than anything else. I have finally found something that just heals my soul. It doesn’t fix everything. But it helps.
