No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.Perfect Liberty 2020.29
An artist ( I don’t like titles/roles) but I’m often referred to as an artist, so I’ll wear that hat for the moment, I learned a long time ago when I would have an urge to paint or visually express something and I’d draw a blank.. to stop… take a step back… and let it go if I had to.. if I forced the idea, or tried to replicate my “feeling” into a visual, I would end up with a disaster.. technically speaking I could paint/draw or sculpt something.. but it just wouldn’t be “right”. We all have had that “blank page” empty canvas moment.
When I’m in the woodland… some days I simply tend and fill the feeders.. and leave.. other days, I’m drawn to stand still, or sit where I am and let the environment speak to me. I take in the decaying vegetation, the fallen branches, the sounds and the scents… I simply stop moving, close my eyes to regroup, then with my eyes closed the sounds become music, the breeze/wind becomes an instrument harmonizing with the chatter of the squirrels/chipmunks and the social greetings of the birds. I am re-energized.
How many “me” moments do you take during the day/night.
Don’t let circumstances sway your decision. It does not help to overthink things. Sometimes we just need to make up our minds and move forward.Perfect Liberty 2022.6
We limber up our bodies, we stretch, and move so that as we “age” we can still be mobile as “time” inches its way into our lives. Let’s’ not forget our minds… the mind gets so overworked, we expect it to constantly be on the alert for us. Take 30 seconds .. start with baby steps… give your mind a break, allow it a super stretch of “stillness”..
