- Take Stock
- Take time for hobbies/interests
- Follow our own inner wisdom

It could be giving yourself permission to drop an unwanted label!
I remember many years ago I used to walk past a lovely local art shop, but felt like I wasn’t really an artist (often struggling to determine one end of a paintbrush from the other) At school art had may me cry so many times as I was truly rubbish at it.
So for years I forlornly shuffled past with the demeanour of Eeyore the donkey. Then one day, I gave myself permission to go in, explore, see what was there (and stop being daft about not being an artist!) I’ve now got my artwork in virtually every room in my house and have had lots of compliments over how lovely my paintings are.
