Last month the London Professional Artists group of which I am a member asked me to share the 'Three Little Words' which inspire me on Instagram.
My words are Breathe, Nurture and Dream.
These words are how I remind myself to focus on the important things in my life as I balance my health (mental and physical), family caring responsibilities and creative practice.
It's a juggling act we all struggle with from time to time, sometimes in a downward spiral of stress and anxiety. My words then are my battle cry to the challenges that might otherwise overwhelm me - a reminder to treat myself gently, to treat others with kindness and to treasure those insubstantial thoughts which make me unique and offer respite from the 'real world' when it all becomes too much.
