6-11-15



If I had a million dollars..... how many times have you seen that prompt?
And how many times has it been fun to take a few minutes and think about what you would really do if you had the money.
It's sort of like when I was a kid... we would get the annual Christmas Sears catalog and countless hours would be spent dreaming of what you would get if you were to have whatever you wanted.

Often times, we are tempted by the "if only" scenarios. And I think TV doesn't help that either.
We are often bombarded by reality TV shows and promos for Publisher's Clearing House on the idea of getting easy money.... life isn't (usually) like that... at least, for most of us.
And far to often, one is left with the feeling of perhaps, having less.... or worse... being less.

Perhaps what would be more beneficial then... is to make a list of what you do have.
What you LOVE that you already have... or are.... or are becoming.
Less on the things... more on the character you want to be remembered for.
The things you have done to help others... the things you have done that memories are made of....

So for today... I am thankful for:
ferns
wildflowers
birdsong
fresh coffee
and a visitor coming today to my studio...

See you all tomorrow!
