Sometimes in life I feel like I live in the woods, surrounded by comforting trees that offer shelter and safety. It is home. It is what I know and where I like to be. But once in a while I get a glimpse of what is beyond the edge of the trees. It's bright and beautiful and exciting, but stepping out into it would also make me exposed and vulnerable. It's scary stepping out into the bright sunlight, opening myself up to the wide world, yet every time I do, it's worth the effort. Sometimes I'm criticized. Sometimes I doubt myself. Sometimes I worry I won't be enough. But when I step out anyway I learn it's okay. I'm not perfect, I will never please everyone, and for sure there will be some stumbles and falls, but I am enough. As I take courage to move forward I see that basking in the sunshine of the open skies can be comforting, too, and it helps me be willing to step out of the woods and into the open again and again.

"Out of the Woods" is an 8x10 inch original oil painting on canvas panel. Comes ready to display in a simple, black frame.
