I have not been the best blogger lately. The nights come and go before I realize it's past 11:00 PM, and seriously this mama-to-be is loving sleep too much lately (smile).
Lately, I have gotten back into drawing again, and it's such a great feeling. I decided to make a little sketch book out of watercolor paper and thread one day, and I've been drawing + water-coloring in it at least twice a week. Something about having a little 6X6 sketchbook to carry in around in my purse that inspires me. I just draw what inspires me that day. A layout in a magazine, a funny thought from a t.v. show, or a quote that resonates with me.
Today, I found a great quote and wanted to illustrate it BLT style.
This quote speaks to me on so many levels lately. At work with my students, at home when I think of the fact that I'm going to be a mama in less than 5 months and sometimes still think "what am I doing?!", when I am on stage teaching Body Combat with a baby bump, and just in everyday life.
My mom always taught my sister and I to "Fake it till you make it...Even if you don't feel like you know what you are doing (or supposed to be doing), fake it. And before you know it, you will find purpose and meaning in that situation, and soon, you will feel confident."
Her words ring so true to me. It may not always be easy, but I'd rather be confident (and sometimes faking confidence) than constantly insecure and afraid.
And with that, baby girl is kicking me from the inside...I can finally feel her moving around in there and it's THE coolest feeling!
Thanks for dropping by :)
