Painting the Picture of Your Life


If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path.  

Your own path you make with every step you take.  That's why it's your path.
              Joseph Conrad

  THE GIFT OF CREATION  is not reserved for artists, composers, designers, authors.  

EVERY ONE of us is a creator and we are creating the journey of our life with every step we take...every decision we make... every thought we think...every word we speak... every emotion we feel.

And we are constantly reinventing that journey...

turning in new directions, becoming aware of new concepts, discovering new beauty in life, observing our reactions and behavior and learning from them 


staying stuck in old patterns, resisting new information, dwelling on what feels uncomfortable or difficult and, thereby, digging ourselves deeper into depression or desperation.

We are not static beings.

We are constantly dipping into thoughts, memories and emotions to produce the colors of the art which is our life.

And there is great reason here for hope and optimism.  Every day...every moment is an opportunity to influence the unfolding of this object 'de arte,

And we have the OPPORTUNITY to choose how we respond to every thing that happens.  

We can choose to recognize, acknowledge and experience our feelings. 
We can choose to express those feelings authentically...to speak our truth in the best way we know how.  

We can not only love ourselves enough to honor and own our feelings we can also love others enough to respect and honor theirs.  

We can choose to accept the flow of life and be open to the lessons it is presenting to us.  

We can choose to find the GIFT in every moment.

What makes up the artist's palette of your life?  

Are you constantly trying new brushes, new colors, new materials and tools?   

Do you stand back or to the side to get a different view of what you are creating? 

 Do the sun and moon illuminate your work and make it sparkle?

Every day, every moment you  bring new perspectives, new vision to your work.  How will you paint your picture today?
