If you can see yourself as an artist, and you can see your life as your own creation, then why not create the most beautiful story for yourself?
don Miguel Ruiz
Take a quiet journey back in time and ponder the artist palette of your childhood. In those moments you painted the picture of your life with bold, splashy colors and magical dreams. Everything seemed possible, just awaiting your attention. Even though the constraints of time have moved you into more grown up circumstances, the vibrancy and joy of your innocence still see so clearly the beautiful spirit you are.
Perhaps your image has been dusted with weariness or tarnished with unresolved pain. But the child/spirit/artist in you knows your beauty and worth.
So bring that sense of adventure and vibrancy into your story. Make something beautiful in your imagination. Visualize the exquisite LOTUS, a symbol of rebirth and transformation which blooms perfectly pristine even from the murkiest of waters.
YOU are the radiant lotus emerging so brilliantly from the complications and adversity of the world.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
Henry Ward Beecher
