Put a paintbrush in hand

With a brush in hand and colors in our palette, we won’t want anything else to hold. That glass of alcohol won’t quench our thirst, that charge card we hand over to the store clerk won’t deliver, and that bag of potato chips or plate of cookies won’t fill us up. Holding a paintbrush takes over our old addictions and becomes our place of rest, where peace fills our soul and our inner wisdom speaks. If you have tried to remove an unwanted addiction with little success, painting will help.
