Sunday's Reflection

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you,
they're supposed to help you discover who you are.
~ Bernice Johnson Reagon
For creative people, like ourselves...
the opportunity to embrace our creative process
is an experience in itself.
Full of abundance...
waiting for you to capture,
gather up all its uniqueness,
and embrace it for all that it is worth.

When we are in touch with our "true" abundance, 
it invites us to live the life we desire...
not the "equation" based on materialistic value.
We do what we love
because...
of the passion we have for the craft!

Despite our passions and putting our best intentions forward,
life happens...
A sudden event occurs, that takes you off your creative path...
Stress is a "creative stealer"
You might question your own self worth...
or
Others... such as, friends & family become the "dream stealers".

All these life challenges, that are placed in front of us...
can be used as a starting point to turn our life into 
an abundance of fulfillment.
As we grow, nurture
and become more inspired through our creative selves;  
that is when our life becomes a work of art!

Learn to identify your positive surroundings;
who are those that encourage and support your creative lifestyle?
 (family, friends, and community)
Develop a imaginary shield;
for self-protection from negativity and toxic people.
Make time for;
inspiration / creative exploring.
Personal growth;
healthy spirit & mind, willingness to learn more, and take hold of opportunities.
One of the secrets of a happy life
is continuous small treats.
~ Iris Murdoch
Have a wonderful Sunday!
