Happy in ADK

“happy in ADK” by Monica Tojek 2021

New drawing just completed and I was so happy with the results that I’ve already cleaned it up, added it to my Society 6 shop and ordered it for myself. Black and white for now – a digitally colored version is a possibility for the future.

From today’s journal entry:

Today I choose joy.
Today I choose playfulness.
Today I choose to step toward the light.
Today I choose lightness.
Today I am open to fun.
Today I choose Love.

I’ve been going through a bit of a difficult time recently. And because I now know what I do, I have realized that it is based on my own thinking and beliefs about the “situation.” Which means that I’ve had to figure out how to, for lack of a better word, “heal” myself. Which, to me, means changing my thinking. Which, in turn, means to lean toward happier, “higher vibe” thoughts. Which in this case has meant to “surrender” (more than once!); pray; ask for guidance; receive guidance. (And I realized partway through that I was already receiving the next little bit day-by-day.)

Things are much better now, with, I’m sure, room for more growth. Anyway (to whom it may concern), I am very, very (very) grateful.

[Update: Another day and I’m down again. I just thought I’d add that for full disclosure. I am happy that I’ve learned how to be happier. And I’ll never be perfect. That’s got to be OK.]

Wishing everyone happiness and magic in their day today.
