We spent part of the Christmas holiday going through files and doing some organization/administrative tasks that weren’t particularly fun. But in the midst of the chaos and drudgery emerged this beautiful illustration, hand drawn by Rachel Sharo, who attended our retreat in 2010.

We like the way this illustration appeared, a jewel amid the paperwork. We also love the illustration itself, how the face is blank (could be any girl, any age, any race) and how the posture of the body is open to interpretation.

For a social media post, we paired it with a quote from Lesia Cartelli, AF Founder: “Facing and embracing your fears often comes with more gifts than you can imagine.”

Happy New Year!
