"Every day, be full of awareness of the beauty around you.
Be full of gratitude for friends and family,
for the goodness you find in others,
for your health and all you're capable of.
be full of acceptance of yourself and others-
without conditions or judging,
knowing that differences and changes make life interesting.
Appreciate the gifts of laughter and fun in your life,
and find contentment in knowing that you can always control
your ability to look on the bright side."
By Barbara Cage.
Its here its here! My website is up and running. I'm so excited to have this online.
I have to be honest and say I gave a few friends on Facebook the first peek last night. I have made the official announcement today!. I have to thank my friends ,family and clients for your support on and off line. Every time any of you have visited my Blog or Fan page on facebook you have supported me and my art. How blessed am I to have such beautiful people enjoy my artwork.
This Blog will remain here for sometime so everyone can catch up. Different time zones and such. Also it will serve as a temporary archive of my works for awhile. I have worked very hard on the site and I still have minor tweaking to do, but that wont interrupt your view. As you will see the Workshops will be current as well at the artwork. It will show where I'm exhibiting and a recent news tab so you can still read about my journey. This isn't a Good bye its a Hello from another side.
I have been in the studio working hard to get some paintings to shops, and I have two exhibits in Feb so I'm working on multiple pieces for those to.Always something new and exciting going on. Thank you again everyone for staying with me here for 5 years. New beginnings are wonderful!

I have true compassion for this woman now because I have set myself free from the attachment I had for her happiness and a chance for the Fantastic life I believe she deserved. Unfortunately we became estranged. I realized I was stunting my own growth by dragging a log through wet sand. I know that sounds harsh but its a metaphor for my own emotions not the person.
Its easy when the person is a stranger but not so easy when they are a friend or family. Because of our "attachments" need for what "we" want and we remain blind to the other party involved having exactly what they want and asked for, regardless of our opinion of it.
This letting go of the attachment may come in the result of letting go of the person. I read something to day I'd like to share: "It’s OK to let some people walk away. – You don’t have control over the things people say about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize it. Leave people to their opinions and judgments. Let them love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be. Or let them walk away if they choose. They can’t harm you either way; it’s their understanding that is faulty, not yours."
What if we turn this around and we become the person who needs to walk away and examine our own thoughts. Be brave enough to see your own faults and prejudices and know when to be the one who walks away. This is the best thing we can do for ourselves. After all if we cant treat our self good then what do we have to offer anyone else?
