Pick and Choose your Battles Warrior - Day Nine of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

Pick and choose your battles, Warrior. The world is filled with injustices and situations. Not every battle is for you. Gravitate toward people and places that speak to your heart, and give your focused attention to them with an open and understanding spirit. Lift one another up.  Don't let yourself be distracted by things that don't matter at the end of the day, or by the things that run contrary to your soul.

Stay strong, Warrior. Stay strong, focused, and filled with love, for you will be able to move mountains. Remember that not everything is black and white, it is up to you to see the shades of grey for that is where your help is needed. 

"Pick and Choose your Battles" is Day Nine in my "30 Warrior Women in 30 Days" series. You can see more of her here in my Etsy

Warrior Woman don't lose Hope - Day Eight of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

Dear Warrior Woman, don't lose Hope. Your efforts make a difference. You may not see the progress yet, but know that change is happening and you are still needed. You are meant for this because you have a sincere heart and a beautiful mind. 
Warrior Woman don't lose Hope - Watercolor Painting in 30 Day Series
In those moments when you feel like you can't go any further and you can't give any longer, take some time to be the Butterfly. Go inward, as a cocoon, breathe deeply and think lightly. The difficulties you are having may just be asking that you readjust your actions.
 Infuse your battle plan with a refreshed strength and joyous attitude. Re-emerge like the Butterfly, as she takes flight from the spent cocoon. 

This Watercolor Painting, titled "Wings of the Warrior Woman" is Day Eight of my "30 Warrior Women in 30 Days" series.

Sadness into Action - Day Seven of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

She wasn't born a Warrior, but she is a Warrior today. It isn't easy for her. It isn't convenient a lot of the time. As a matter of fact, there are many days when she thinks her life would be easier if she wasn't.
She is not even sure how much of a choice it was for her, for it seemed to be a "must". Her heart was filled with so much sadness, seeing the injustices that were happening in the world, that soon that sadness felt as if it would drown her if she didn't do something.
Sadness into Action - Day Seven of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

She decided that she needed to transform that strong sad energy, into an energy that could be diligent and fierce - focused on changing those things that were pulling at her heart. She decided that her pain could be her passion.
Not everyone can be a Warrior, and that's okay, we all have a different path.  But for some, there is no other choice other than to be a Warrior....it's in their blood...it's in their heart...it's in their soul.

Keep your prayer at the forefront. You are not alone,"

Resistance - Day Four of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

There is something surreal about moving through your day, and knowing at the same time you are watching history take place. That is how yesterday, January 21st, 2017 was for me. To have spent so much of my adult life as an artist, focused on creating Art that empowers and inspires Women....to so often portray that the world is waiting for the Women to Rise....left me feeling validated and complete while watching the Women's March on Saturday. I don't even know that I can put into words the feeling of awe as I watched over a million women around the world take to the streets and use their Voice. 
My heart was overflowing with Love and Hope. I was so proud of each and every one of them, for showing up, for marching, for speaking, for Being. 
They played it Live on the television, showing the marches in Washington and around the world. I pulled up live feeds on my phone, listening to the speakers and being inspired. In the midst of the history making, I pulled out my watercolors. Saturday was supposed to be Day 4 of my "30 Warrior Women in 30 Days" series, and I now knew who would be painted that day, 
Day Four's painting would not be a single woman. It would be a sea of women, marching, representing, connecting.

Water Warrior - Day Three of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

She is a dedicated Water Warrior who has committed to watching over and protecting the sacred waters of this Earth. She understands the delicate balance of the ecosystem, and how vulnerable our water sources are within our often destructive ways of living.

She does not take the Water for granted, for she sees how many are suffering already without its blessings. You can find her all over the world, defending sacred water from being poisoned, knowing that she is protecting this Life Source that is the blood of our Earth - it is a part of Her - a part of You - a part of every living thing. It flows through us all and to destroy it, is to destroy ourselves.
