Go ahead, say it out loud, "This is gonna be the best day of my life."
I was encouraging one my creative nephews the other day to get up and before his feet even touch the warm Texas hardwood floors to just say out loud.....
" Something wonderful is going to happen to me today."
That simple phrase can change your life. You start to believe it. You start to act on it.
Pictured above is the stove that came with one of our homes...love the Harvest Gold color circa 1971?
Well, the backsplash was just as retro but not as adorable. It was that white laminate with gold specks that was the same as the countertop and permanently adhered to the wall. We replaced the countertop and I needed a quick fix for the backsplash before I went mad.
Eureka! Chalkboard paint! It worked and I have never changed it because I have so much fun with it AND it is functional. I write down phone messages, doctor appts (I know I should use my iphone for that). Most of all I write encouraging tidbits that help me keep moving forward throughout the day.
We all need encouragement. We need each other. We were created for community. We are healthier when we are a part of a community. That is another reason I do what I do. To help create community and discover everyone's "Artist Within" .When you experience some form of community you have a place to express yourself and create in many many forms. Art is in making a meal, planting a flower, singing a song, writing on a chalkboard. Find a way to create community and then a way to be creative and express yourself. Your soul will be happier and healthier.
