Season of Brave – Week 1

It’s a new Get Messy art journaling season: BRAVE.

I got up this morning and felt inspired to watercolour. I identify with fish being Pisces in the astrological chart. I love water and how it always finds its way through. So for me, being brave is:

Making a splash

and swimming against the tide

(into your own unique path and journey…)

Apols about the quite poor photos. But do you know what? I’m really happy with the real page and how inspired I felt. And brave.

      Thank you! I heard a quote once that was something like: ‘only dead fish go with the flow’. It makes you think. And it makes me want to stand up and be brave!

    I love that concept, swimming against the tide. It might feel like you’re not getting anywhere swimming against the tide, but you really are. I did a bit of that in the last week, I’m just hoping I haven’t got caught in a rip lol. This season of being brave is great isn’t it?

      I just read your blog and yes, brave is a good one. I only just saw this comment so apols for late reply! Maybe sometimes getting diverted into a little side-pool is the big plan, but then when the time is right, we can conquer the ocean and no rip tide can hold us back (from letting rip with our brave new voice!). Maybe I got carried away there, but then who is to say what is right or wrong? It really does make you think when you start delving into the prompts. I love that we on this very important journey and we can all support each other along the way xxx

    […] much BRAVE but slightly blocked – creatively, expressively, but most of all, brave-ly. My first week of Brave flowed like fish, all translucent watercolour and whimsical BRAVE […]
