As our self-distancing situation continues world-wide it is very important to reach out.
I have been streaming live art creation videos during my time at home, beginning in March of this year (2020). I have found that it can really help, even just the thought that some of you are out there creating along with me. I like to think that I am helping some of you as well, even if you just have me on in the background.
Just the thought of having others near you, be it virtually or physically in your ‘bubble’, can have a great effect on the human spirit.
I, myself, have had some really bad days & by choosing to stream a live video of creativity and chatting, it did help bring me back to my centre (ground myself) with some inner strength and positivity. I even cried during one video back in the Spring and , in the end, it was okay.
It’s kind of weird, how when we show our true feelings, we can actually relate to others in a truer and deeper way.
I am not suggesting that you are to do ‘live’ videos as well, but do reach out.
Please reach out.
If you are having low moments, rough patches, or are sinking in depression, reach out. Even if you think you have no one to reach out to, you do. You know deep deep down who you can reach out to. Sometime you just want/need to be heard. Need to know that you are not alone. Need to be reminded of the greatness in the world, the hope & therefore the JOY that will be waiting for you around the corner.
Even if you are in a good place right now, reach out. Build connections. Find your tribe and don’t forget to let them now how much you appreciate them. Share your strength & truth and you will receive it in return. Sometimes you will receive it out of the blue and right when you need it the most.
I plan to continue my Tuesday & Friday live streams at 2pm PST every week & hope to bring some guests on every once in awhile (once I figure out how to do it better…lol). You can always find my livestreams at www.nicci.tv or in my facebook page and or Youtube.
Below is a group chat video I was a part of earlier this week, with some fabulous Artists that I have just recently met online during the pandemic. (Right there, is some of my JOY. Making new friends online during a year spent at home.)
Don’t forget that there are also professionals ready to help you. These are the contact lines for my local area, but please use google to find the numbers for you to call.

You are worthy.
You are loved.
You have the power and the strength, you just have to reach deep inside (metaphorically) and use it.
Keep smiling and creating my friends,
