Art is a guarantee of sanity. —Louise Bourgeois
2017 is my year of healing.
Roughly 8 years ago, my tiny world began a slow spin out of control. About 4 years ago, that slow spin escalated exponentially. In that time…I nearly lost all control twice. If not for Divine intervention and the unconditional love of family and friends, I would have destroyed/damaged more then my own life. Yep…suicide.
I’m no longer afraid, nor ashamed/embarrassed, to admit that.
Increasing physical disability and pain; compounding layers of loss and grief; crumbling foundations of faith and belief; and an undiagnosed anxiety/depression disorder…all swirled and boiled together to make one huge pot of unstable crazy soup. I literally thought, at one point, that insanity was my new lot in life…a life I couldn’t see any worth completing.
Thankfully, life thought I was worth completing.
Art therapy has become one of my favorite coping and healing “tools”. It truly and literally keeps me sane. Well..as sane as I’ll ever be. 🙂
