"We accept the love we think we deserve." Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

I had a client come by yesterday to pick up a painting. She is a professional... a doctor, with teenagers, soccer, baseball, a husband and her home. She stays so busy that I worry when I see her that she is burning the candle at both ends. I told her it took me to this age to realize only I could free myself from everything that binds me in my lifestyle. Somewhere a spiritual lights shines in each of us showing us the natural way. Are you ignoring it? True living is effortless and very liberating. Are we there yet?

First, accept yourself as who you are, just as you are. God created you as His beloved and filled you with the spirit of light and love. He gave each of us unique skills and talents to share with others. He gave us imagination and creativity to find the best all around us. Are you doing it?

Freedom is simply a state of mind and heart. It is tied into the state of your spirit and the life that God has given you to live.

Are you free?  Laurie
