The Flying Lessons ecourse that I have been taking has been keeping me awake at night, but all in a good way. Kelly Rae Roberts has been sharing so much information with us that my brain is swirling, swirling, swirling. But I have to say, one of my favorite parts of this ecourse is the incredible community that has developed over the past couple of weeks. Before the ecourse started, I was feeling very isolated and frustrated. I was unhappy with the way my creative life was going. My mom had passed away last year, and she was the creative soul that I shared everything with. Since that time, I haven't really been connecting with anyone in a creative sense. But now all that has changed. It started with the first day of class. People were opening up and pouring out their fears and concerns. And there is something about sharing your vulnerabilities with others that opens you up to friendships. To connections. That very first day, after reading the post about addressing fears, and then reading through all the comments, I felt like I had found long lost sisters. We all had so much in common, so many of the same fears, that is was like a huge, virtual hug. It was so amazing. I think that this energy, this sharing, this caring spirit, all started with the love that Kelly Rae Roberts put out there for us. She set the tone, and it worked like a charm. I am so thankful, so very thankful, to have met these people and find friends in this creative journey I'm on. There is room for all of us and I hope that we can arrive at this place together!
