My art My life

I have several different art projects that I have been working on. I am wondering when they will all be done. Some things I think I should just throw away. Yet when I approach the trash can I can not do it. I can not do it because each creation has life to it. It has my energy on it. It has life. The frustration of being an artist with so many ideas takes its toll at times. Yet creativity will never leave me alone. It comforts me in times of stress. I use to comfort myself with food a lot of the time to soothe make this frustration disappear. This is something a lot of people do. By saying this I am not justifying what I use to do I am merely stating a fact. These days I have opted to fuel my body with what it needs and nothing more and continue to solve my problems with creativity. Feeling sad and angry are natural. I can not run away from those feelings. Yet I can channel those feelings through my art.
It has been raining for about a week and the sun has come out today. Through watching the rain and recovering from a cold I faced some powerful emotions. These emotions came around to remind me of the blocks that I still have. These blocks are blocks from my past that I am breaking through by being true to myself and not trying to cover things up with a second helping of food. The rain brought about some very insightful dreams. These dreams were filled with many symbols with meaning of which I can easily decipher myself. And no doubt will show up in my art eventually.
