Reflection Friday


Today has been a day of reflection for this week. This week has been a series of family responsibilities and commitments. I have not had a great deal of time to be in my studio for that reason. At first I had a difficult time with this, causing my inner critic to come out and say...WELL, YOU SHOULD BE DOING THIS....OR YOU SHOULD BE DOING THAT! But once I listened closer I found my inner self saying...THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING! By slowing down, I was able to re-connect to my past thru some of these commitments and by doing that I was also connecting to my present. This caused me great depths of smiles. I learned to sing new heart songs this week, allowing myself to dabble more than drive myself with creativity. This week, I delighted in laughter and being silly. And I also, was very aware of the warmth of love that pours in to me from others, and surrounds me daily. So, when reflecting I learned that I have a really full life! An amazing life! I am surrounded by creativity everywhere I look...from nature, from silence, from silly! I was aware that birth and death are the cycles of life and I celebrated both with great love. This has been a wonderful week of reflection. My wish for you as you reflect on your week would be the same...take the time...ALWAYS take the time to remember where you came from...how far you have come...and where you still want to go. Life is an amazing journey filled with the warmth of love, new and old heart songs, connecting and re-connecting....and don't forget the silly!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Seeing your beautiful art opens my heart Pattie! I see it...I breathe in deeply...smile...and exhale with an overflowing peace and even more joy and delight!

I love these colors, the creation...and yes, the message. My life is indeed "full"...and I am so very abundantly blessed to share my life with friends who know the same.

Godspeed to you my friend...
