In this season of gift giving and receiving, there's sometimes more focus than ever on things we have and don't have. It doesn't take the Christmas Season to sometimes feel like everyone else got all the goodies- the best toys, more money, better education, unbelievable opportunities and uncanny good luck. If this is you, here's a link to a story that will both inspire and encourage you. In it, a young woman asks what if what you have is all you'll ever have, to accomplish what you were meant to do on this earth?
Ponder the thought. What if what you have is all you'll ever have? It's an excellent question. What would you do? Would you proceed with confidence, or would you believe that you have to accept a smaller dream? Could you abandon the anxious urge to continue striving for what you don't have, and hoping to make conditions better before take action?
I know for myself that I'll follow this young woman's advice, confident that I have plenty despite shortages, and satisfied in the knowledge that I have all I need to find success, truth and beauty in life and in painting. What peace!
Happy New Year! And do read her story. It's pretty amazing.
