An Artist’s Expression of You

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

There’s a certain fascination with what artists do. While the rest of us breathe to live, they create just as naturally and with the same necessity. What is an artist who does not create?

Are you frustrated? Sometimes irritable? Feel like something’s missing in your life? All signs you are looking for creative expression and may not see the need or the opportunity in your daily life.

I don’t have any training.

I don’t own a paintbrush.

I’m not artistic.

Trying to be what you perceive you are not is unsettling. But if you think all artists must know how to paint, let’s turn that notion up side down.

Artists create their vision into outward expression. They release what is inside of them and create the image in tangible form. We celebrate the artist who paints, who writes, who performs. That same artistic opportunity is available to all of us. Our medium for creation is our mind. Our canvas for creation is our life.

All artists begin with an image in their mind of what they want to create. Not knowing every brushstroke, or every word to use, or movement they will make in the creative process, they begin with an intention to manifest in physical form what can no longer stay within them.

You are a creative being, an artist of your own life. Express the image of what’s inside you. Imagine your life. Create your life. Celebrate the artist that you are.


“True artists are almost the only men who do their work for pleasure.” Auguste Rodin

Thanks for the Celebration

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Touched by all the well wishes on our anniversary yesterday,  I've found another reason to be grateful. I'm grateful for all the people in my life that cheer me on.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in out daily crises, we feel like we are alone and our experiences are somehow separate from everyone else. Yet, our humanness is shared by billions of people on this earth. We shed the same tears and understand the universal language of a smile.

Celebrating another year of marriage is an accomplishment, yet one that is shared by many. Seems we only hear about the relationships that end badly. We sensationalize the bad rather than celebrating the good.

Those well wishes we received made me proud of our accomplishment and fueled my resolve to add another year and more. Same can be true for any occasion you help to celebrate; a promotion, an engagement, an improvement in health, a job well done.

Lifting the spirit of another person is a simple thing for you to do and it makes a tremendous impression on the recipient. Think about how it feels to be remembered. Caring enough from someone else is more than enough to help you through a rough day. Your expression is a powerful way to-

Build confidence.

Inspire to do more.

Give a  feeling of connection.

Today is brighter through the memories of yesterday. Thank you for your contribution to my happiness!
