Throughout my life, I've heard some variation of the phrase "you're too sensitive" more times than I can count. And it's become a response I truly detest. Not only does It insinuate "you're feelings are not valid", but it's dismissive and it made me feel defective. The truth is, many times, the things some people dislike about us are also the things others LOVE about us. . . I'm sensitive, but my sensitivity informs my compassion and empathy: two qualities that truly make me, me. I used to beat myself up for not having that "thicker skin" people told me to grow, but now I realize that not everyone will like you- AND THAT'S PERFECTLY OK. I like me! And stripping away my sensitivity takes away the parts of me that make me special. . . . . . . . . #illustrationoftheday #editorialillustration #illustrationartists #kidlitart #instaart #illustrationart #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrationdaily #womenwhodraw #drawingdaily #illustragram #halifaxmakers #halifaxartist #halifaxblogger #createeveryday #createdaily #colorventures #creativelifehappylife #abmhappylife #livecreatively #inspiredbypetals #chooselovely #pursuepretty #darlingdaily #dailydoseofcolor #Dailydoseofwhimsy #dailydoseofpaper

RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Wow, just look at what all our lovely flowers have been used to create. I am super excited to have been a part of this and got involved with @flowersfromthefarm first Chelsea exhibit. A huge congratulations to my lovely friend Sara @myflowerpatch for being there and involved in creating this fabulous display.

Vi capita mai di sognare tanto qualcosa e avere paura quando poi il sogno inizia a prendere la forma di qualcosa di reale? Elettrizzata e piena di dubbi allo stesso tempo. Ditemi se succede anche a voi e qual è il vostro antidoto antipanico 😅 #pepitedigioia #underthefloralspell #superga
