Daily Karma

I get an email daily with a quote in it. It's called Daily Karma. This morning, it said "A yard that is not cared for is eventually overgrown by weeds." And, as a 16 year old that I know would say, that's a thinker.

I can honestly say I have not really pondered this before. And this morning it hit me as if I walked right into a pole. So... we are growing and changing daily. If we don't do it mindfully then we don't guide our growth. Wow.

If I don't pursue my goals as I grow, then I grow AWAY from them. Painting, for instance... have not picked up a brush in weeks... and I have no idea why. Am I still growing? Oh, by leaps and bounds. But are my painting abilities? No. So what am I growing? I'm growing a long list of excuses not to paint for one. And I am growing out of the habit of painting daily. Weeds are moving in because I'm not cultivating the good.

I will definitely be working on this one in the coming days and weeks. I will put one foot in front of the other to mindfully cultivate the things that I want.

thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, Breathing is key in all of this. I loved this post of yours. It really is a thinker. I'm going to browse thru your blog now. I really like what I see.
Whatever you paint today, I'd love to see. It always amazes me when one has an epiphany, the flow of creativity that is released.
Have a great day!

I have it on good authority that Motherhood is the finest art of all...this is the only art you must relentlessly pursue. Peace and joy.
