Today a friend sent me a link to a utube video that was so inspirational I decided I needed to share it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc&feature=youtube_gdata_player
It is so easy to be caught up in day to day living that we cease to see that perhaps we aren't really living as our heart would dictate. I was very happy to be reminded of this and to recall the events in my own life that were cross roads needing my attention and decision. Some worked out better than others but on the whole I am happy to say that my direction has turned out, so far, to be correct for me. Money and fame are not too important to me, fortunately, so I have concentrated on finding a lifestyle that would ease my inborn tendency to worry and fret, to calm the storms I sometimes am caught up in, and bring some joy to my heart, and I hope some joy to others as well. Being of good cheer in ourselves is a balm for those around us.
I am by no means a PollyAnna - that could get old really fast - and I tend to get on soapboxes at times, probably to the annoyance of some, but I mean well:-) Here's to your good cheer, your health, and your successful trip to your heart's desires.
I am finding myself wondering what this painting is about and if I really want to be doing it but since I dislike unfinished projects I am persevering. Thinking about letting Samanda's parents have this as a thank you for the time she has given so freely in posing. I have a bigger project in mind but don't know if I have the stamina to see it through. Oh yeah, that is what this painting is about - a bit of procrastination and avoidance. I'm good at that.
