Too Busy for My Spiritual Autobiography?

Sep 15

I have a new job and I have my hands full. What do we do when our lives become too busy for our story? My spiritual autobiography once had a voice, but today it’s on the back burner. I believe our spiritual memoir unfolds regardless of whether we dedicate time to sharing it. But, with just a small moment here and there, we can make sure we share our unfolding story and give it a voice.

I’m trying to find space to share my story. This is just time that I am using to write something for my blog. I’m trying to grab the little moments and use them wisely. I can’t let my story become silent. I can give up completely on the opportunity to share. I refuse to become too busy for my spiritual autobiography.

Today’s blog is a challenge for us all to find space to share our stories. Maybe you won’t share here at Journey on Canvas blog, but I challenge you to share somewhere. If you scrapbook your story, add a page to one of your albums this week. If you write, write a page for the chapter you are working on. If you tell your spiritual autobiography through art, start a piece of work even if it doesn’t begin to get finished. Share somewhere today. Share somewhere this week. Whatever you do, don’t be too busy for your spiritual autobiography.

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.


Past Work!





Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
