This weekend I was surrounded by my core support staff. Family and friends came to spend the weekend with us. We laughed, shared food and children and talked and planned. It was wonderful.
This core group allows me to have space and time to paint. I call on them to assist me. I have slowly learned not only to ask for the help but also to accept it. I think sometimes we ask for the help but when it comes we start to feel guilty for needing the support. This guilt fouls the creative juices in such a way that we can't really make full use of the support we've received.
I'm also learning that I am surrounded by a HUGE support team in my links with the Marks and Splashes Course as well as my 12x12 and PB Dummy groups. I'm not at all versed in social media and I'm really floundering about trying to work out the best way to assist these folks. I know that what I give I will receive.
It's a funny awkward feeling knowing help is waiting and all you have to do is figure out how to help another (sometimes how to help yourself!)
How are you supporting your SELF? Do you have a support team? How might they help you? Remember - voicing a question can lead you through a myriad of people who lead you to the answer.
Leave a comment about your answers - I look forward to hearing from you.
