Today’s piece was about choices… I had another piece planned, but the day’s events led me to this.
This is something that I’ve wanted to do, I wanted to do a little experimenting and practice. Try some new soft pastels and work on my palette knife work.
So I chose to do this, because I had a moment in the day that turned the lights on in me… refocused me, and gave me a new attitude.
My day prior to creating, well let’s just say it didn’t go as planned (I share about it in the video). But as soon as I logged in with my coach and she gave me this quote. I knew… it was time to refocus and make a choice…. a choice about a lot of things.
“Attitude is more important than facts, It is more important than the past, than education, money circumstances, than failures and success, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, ability, or skill. It will make or break a business, a home, a friendship, an organization. The remarkable thing is I have a choice every day of what my attitude will be. I cannot change my past. I cannot change the actions of others. I cannot change the inevitable. The ONLY thing I can change is attitude.
Life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it.” — Chuck Swindoll
I had such an amazing shift in perspective, and I can’t wait to share this project and some thoughts with you today. I hope you enjoy it!
