Creative Courage: Finding Yours in 2015

Last year, after the terrible car accident I was in, I felt this little nudge in my heart to take my story of courage developed through some of life’s most challenging times for me and write an e-course to help inspire others to do the same.  I certainly had plenty of time on my hands, considering I had lost so much, including my job and being forced to drop out of school.  While recovering and spending many hours alone at home on the sofa each day, I desired to do more than just sit there, staring at the wall, while time and life passed me by! Despite the pain I was suffering, this girl wanted more.  Uh huh.

About 4 months into my recovery (and at a place where I could sit up once again and write), I began to capture my thoughts and ideas on paper.  In less than a month, it all transitioned it into my very own e-course called, Hello, Courage: Finding Your Creative Joy During Life's Challenges.  Through-out this course I not only share pieces on overcoming the challenges of my car accident but my story of surviving child abuse and domestic violence.  Situations like this require courage and hope to overcome such life-altering moments - moments where I had to choose to overcome or be defeated by the things that happened to me.

After Hello, Courage went "live", I was totally blown away not only by the enrollment in my course but the overwhelming engagement and success of it.  The feedback and comments on how this course had transformed women’s lives was so humbling, filling my heart with joy!  Here's what one lady said:

"This class was just what I needed. I have always loved art but was not sure about my direction and have always lacked confidence in my work. I have so enjoyed learning from Alexandra - her tips, techniques and support have taught me so much. I also really needed to be given permission to let go of being perfect and paint what inspires me and it has changed the way I feel about my art. Thank you Alexandra xoxo"
