Setting in the Color
“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.” JK Rowling
Imagine a World Where . . .
Slowly the figure began to disappear. What was in mind was a larger version of a painting from four years ago... a small 12 x 12. When I was approached for a print of the 12 x 12 LARGE... I knew it could not be done, but I also knew I had the color needed on Juxtapose and it was time for a transformation.
Can you even imagine a world where your feelings and mindset did not control your behaviors? A world where each of us took responsibility for our actions? Where each of us learned to persevere in the face of hardships, danger and challenges in order to make a longtime dream a reality? How about a world where you learn to NOT be the victim of others criticism and abuse?
What can you control in your life? You can control your thoughts, the images you visual in your head when you are thinking and the actions you take in life. That translates into the need to be positive and think positive thoughts. Visualize successful outcomes for your actions and choices, and always act and speak in a positive manner. This is life changing... transforming.
Since I was a little girl, I found joy in taking on projects or challenges and finding ways to solve them or complete them. I had a mental list of what was expected of me, and from there I relied on God, prayer and action. There were storms and falls along the way, but the one thing I learned from my parents was perseverance. Secondly, ALWAYS thinking of others and how my actions would or could affect others. Challenges were always opportunities to grow.
Then came the desire to teach (planted by God) and using so many of my life experiences to inspire my students to believe in themselves and not worry about what others think...but to focus on the moment and never do harm to others. Facilitating growth in another human being is the greatest feeling ever. Watching my art students grow, go off the college and become art teachers or even just teachers, was amazing.
We should always encourage and inspire others to reach beyond what they believe they are capable of. It is our responsibility to make the world a better place.
So tomorrow you can see the completion of Juxtapose transforming.
