Doing a Happy Dance

I’m not usually one that toots their own horn, but there are positive things happening in my life right now that I’m so very happy and grateful for that I feel the need to share.

Despite having PCOS (which causes higher sugar levels and cholesterol issues (among other problems) and a hereditary predisposition to high cholesterol…
I am no longer pre-diabetic! My sugar levels are normal!!!
My “good” and “bad” cholesterol levels are now normal as well!!!!

Yes, I have other health problems that I’m still working on with my doctor, but these 2 things are awesome and an indication that my lifestyle changes are paying off.  I’m so excited and surprised 🙂

 

I have been creating many larger drawings in the past few weeks.  I have rendered works in this style before, but haven’t in quite some time (2 years I think- yikes!).  They also make me happy.  Like most artists, I don’t always like my creations and often times am not confident in my abilities.  When they say that ‘the artist is their own worst critic’, they are very much correct.  So, for me to be happy with something that I’ve made is a good thing indeed. But anyway new artwork to share…

So my lovelies… what makes you happy?  What are you grateful and appreciative for?  Yes, world events are pretty bleak, and it is hard for many (myself included) to stay hopeful and positive right now.  So, it is important now more than ever to be aware of the things that are going well for you and hold on to that feeling.  Let those positive chunks of your life fuel your day.  It’s those bleak times, when many have lost hope, that we need those who are strong in their optimism to help others up.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day of awesome 🙂
